Update from Mr Wilding - 23rd September

Update from Mr Wilding - 23rd September

Mr Wilding has sent out an update to parents and carers.

To all parents and carers.

Greetings from LCS.

I would like to thank all students, parents and carers for their support over the last 2 days. Year 10 students have returned to school today and work has started to be set for those students who we identified yesterday as requiring to self-isolate. All students have been incredibly sensible and responsible about the current situation and we have also received some welcome support from parents and carers. My decision to initially ask all Year 10 students to remain at home yesterday was not one I wanted to make, but I am grateful to students, parents and carers for their understanding of the reasons for this decision.

Students have responded extremely well to the change of rules regarding face masks from today and have cooperated well with our new expectations. A small number of students, understandably, forgot about the new rule and were provided with face masks by school staff, but I am grateful to the vast majority of students who remembered and were prepared accordingly; I am sure those who did forget will be organised for tomorrow.

Finally, I have been asked to share a letter from Public Health England about the Test and Trace programme. A link to this letter is below:

Test and Trace Program Letter - Public Health England

Thank you again for your support and positive comments of the last few days. Please do not underestimate how much this means to myself and to all staff in school at this present time.

About LCS

Mr Wilding - LCS Acting Headteacher

Welcome to Littleover Community School. I am lucky enough to have worked at the school since September 2000 and I am delighted to have been asked by Governors to take the role of Acting Headteacher from January 2020 until July 2021.

We are a large comprehensive secondary school, located to the south west of the City of Derby, close to the main transport routes of the A38 and A50. We pride ourselves on the excellent teaching we provide for all our students, as well as the care and support all students receive to help them achieve their best.

We are committed to a broad and balanced curriculum and our students have achieved outstanding results at both GCSE and A Level for many years now. We also believe in providing all our students with wider opportunities for learning and developing through their work in the classroom, as well as access to extra-curricular opportunities in sport and performing arts.

I hope you find our website informative and easy to use. We are always happy to receive ideas of how we can improve our service to parents, carers, students and our community and if you have any ideas or questions about anything on our website, or more widely about the school, please do not hesitate to contact us. If you would like a paper copy of our school brochure, please provide your name and address for a copy to be posted to you.

Littleover Community School.
Learning, Caring, Succeeding.
