Dear Parent / Guardian of year 8 students,
I would like to pass on praise for our Year 8 students who have worked so hard during the isolation period. It has been great to see the greater majority of our students engaged in live lessons with teachers through the Teams platform, as well as the work they have done in their directed study sessions.
In preparation for their return on Monday 12th October, students will need to make sure they have completed all their directed study tasks ready to hand in to their teachers if they have not already been submitted through Teams.
Having also been out of school for a week, it would be good to take time to ensure their uniform, school bag, books and equipment, are ready for school on Monday morning. Please can you ensure that your son or daughter has a mask to wear in school and a spare in their bag as these are still compulsory in communal areas around school and optional in lessons where students are all sat facing the front of the room.
Year 8 should enter through Gate A at the Reception Hub on Wake Green Road from 8.40am for an 8.55am start in lessons.
Please take time to talk to your son or daughter over the weekend to ensure they are ready and back in the right frame of mind to return to school. In school we remind our students that they need to follow the 3Rs to be successful: respectful, responsible and ready to learn.
- Respectful – A respectful student is proud to be a member of Moseley School and values their time at school, their education, the environment and the people around them.
- Responsible – A responsible student is always very motivated and works well independently and in a team. They contribute to lessons and use their initiative.
- Ready to learn – A student who is ready to learn rarely has any time off school. They are well organised and plan their time to ensure that they are not late and that they bring the right equipment and books each day.
We have really missed having Year 8 in school and the team are very much looking forward to welcoming them back on Monday morning.
