Update from Mr Wilding - 25th September

Posted 25th September 2020

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

To all parents and carers.

It has been an eventful, but extremely rewarding first 3 weeks of term. The students continue to amaze us with their positivity and resilience and all Year Groups are continuing to make excellent progress. The need to create Year Group 'bubbles' in school has caused some issues for us, which we are addressing and making adaptions where required, but one of the main effects of the 'bubble' system appears to be happening when students leave school at the end of the day.

With our staggered finish times, students are leaving school in their Year Group 'bubbles' to minimise mixing. Some students are finding this challenging, particularly in the younger year groups, and are becoming over excited around their peers, without the older students around to calm them down. We have had some calls from members of the community about poor behaviour of our students on the way home from school and I have been out to two particular areas in the last few days to talk to students about their responsibilities and our expectations of them, while wearing our school uniform.

Whereas most of this behaviour is simply 'silliness' or over-enthusiasm, this can lead to more serious issues if it gets out of hand. I would, therefore, ask all parents and carers to talk to their children about walking home from school sensibly and safely, as the good reputation this school has in the community is built on the behaviour of our students, both in and out of school. If students witness others letting the school down on their way home, they should speak to their Head of Year, or to myself, so we can identify those responsible. Thank you for your cooperation with this.

With the current restrictions around Covid-19, we will unfortunately not be able to hold our regular School Open Day and Sixth Form Open Evening events this term; these events were scheduled for 8th October and 20th October, respectively. We are in the process of putting together on-line virtual presentations for both events, which we hope to have 'live' on our website on the original dates, or as close to these dates as we can. We are working hard to make as much relevant information as possible available through this virtual format, as the option of people visiting school personally is not available to us at this time.

Thank you, as usual, for your ongoing support. Enjoy your weekend.

Update from Mr Wilding - 23rd September

Posted 23rd September 2020

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:

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.
