Further to school sending out letters to all parents / carers of Secondary aged pupils you can now watch this ‘how to’ video for Covid-19 self-testing.

Remember – pupils only have to carry out nasal swabs; (swab of both nostrils) – we do not ask or expect any pupils to try to carry out a throat swab.

(see page 11 of the Step by Step Guide)

If your child presents symptoms whilst at school you will be called and must collect your child as a matter of urgency.

 

Welcome to Lindsworth School a provision in which all staff work together to support pupils develop their academic and social skills whist encouraging growth in their emotional and mental health well-being. We are a staff team who have high expectations of each and every pupil who attend, inspiring them to achieve success to support them in the next phase of their education, training or employment. We are committed to creating well rounded individuals and believe that in order to do this, we must adopt the philosophy that “One size fits NONE”.  We offer a broad and balanced curriculum which provides pupils with a wealth of opportunities to expand their experiences. Individualisation is a key focus in all aspects of school life from individualised lessons to behaviour targets and intervention packages for those requiring extra support.

We are proud of the relationships we have built over the years with pupils, parents and a variety of external agencies and this has strengthened the collaborative work and the provision on offer to our pupils.


As a whole school we constantly reflect on our practices and use this to focus improvement and drive initiatives which will enhance the provision. This has taken us through a range of notable achievements such as improving teaching and learning, securing a “Good” from Ofsted.

All the pupils who attend our school are unique however one key factor we believe they all have in common is “they are all capable of amazing things” and at Lindsworth we create an aspirational culture to facilitate this, where success is celebrated.


We hope you find the website information informative, if you do require any further please do not hesitate to contact us.

May 2021 newsletter

Parental letter 14th April 2021

Dear Parents/Carers                                                                                                                     14th May 2021

 

COVID update - Wearing of face coverings in school

Following the Prime Ministers’ announcement on Monday 10th May 2021, I can confirm that we will no longer be requiring our students to wear face coverings in classrooms or communal areas from Monday 17th May 2021. Staff will no longer be required to wear a face covering in the classroom. Please note that it is still recommended that all visitors to the school and staff continue to wear masks in communal areas and corridors. All other COVID measures remain in place for the time being, including: the expectation of sanitising and washing your hands and masks to be worn when on transport. Students are encouraged to still socially distance from each other and staff members as much as possible.

This is very good news and I hope it has been well received by the students. Face coverings have certainly been an additional challenge for all to manage over the last weeks. If you do have any concerns regarding this updated practice, please contact your child’s Pastoral Manager in the first instance. 

Finally, the DfE has asked that we remind parents/carers of the importance of home testing and engaging with NHS Test and Trace.

School website

We are currently updating our school website so I would ask you to please contact reception if you require any information you are unable to find.

 

Teacher Training Day

Advance notice that Friday 25th June 2021 School will be closed to pupils.

 

This year has presented so many challenges for all of us and as a school we have missed the opportunity to meet with our parents/carers. If the roadmap continues and restrictions ease we are planning to hold our end of year parents evening and annual barbecue to which everyone will be invited. 

More details to follow but should there be a need for us to move this to a virtual event, we will notify you of any changes.

 

Year 11

I am going to remain optimistic that we will be able to invite parents and carers into school to celebrate with our Year 11’s and attend the Year 11 Leavers Assembly. Updates to follow.

 

Looking forward

Finally, we are looking forward to having fun and creating more memories as we start to prepare to head into the next academic year in September and hopefully resume with the exciting enrichment activities and school camps.

 

Yours sincerely
