22 April 2020 Update

Dear Parents, Carers and Students


I hope that you all remain safe and well. You are constantly at the forefront of our thoughts.


Thank you for all the positive feedback on our Virtual Curriculum Overviews. We welcome your views and continue to learn all the time. A structured survey will be sent out this Friday. Just by way of a reminder from some of my earliest updates:


  • Staff are available ‘real time’ in lesson slots to respond to email queries about work that is being set
  • It is important that students only spend the allocated lesson time on each piece of work. Regular breaks and physical exercise are vitally important to aid effective learning and student wellbeing.
  • Any technical or access issues should by referred to VLE@parkhouseschool.org
  • Each of the Year Group emails are available to raise any general queries or concerns


For those of you with children and siblings waiting to join us in September, I’m delighted to report that work on our exciting and creative online induction platform continues apace. You should also today have received a separate letter from Mr Golding outlining our plans in more detail.


I will write again on Friday.


Very best wishes

Derek Peaple
