Important Letter Regarding Students’ Return to School in September 2021

An important letter from Mr Duffield, Executive Headteacher, and Mrs Garrod, Head of School, was sent via email to Parents and Carers yesterday, Thursday 15 July.

The letter detailed students’ return to school in September 2021, including an update to schools and COVID-19 guidance, a timetable of students’ lateral flow testing and their return to the school site, as well as a list of Form Tutors and Form rooms.

A copy of the letter can be found here


Message from The Chair of the School Standards Board

Dear Parents and Carers

As we approach the end of a challenging year, I would like to record our thanks to the whole school community for the support given to the children through this difficult period. I know you will join me in thanking Mr Duffield, Mrs Garrod and the staff in all areas of the school who have worked tirelessly to ensure the children have had access to an uninterrupted education in the most challenging  of times.  

Our thanks must also go to the children themselves, who have responded so well and with such tenacity and resilience under such trying circumstances. Thank you to you also, as Parents and Carers, for supporting your children and the school when you have faced so many challenges yourselves, and let us hope that September will see a return to a semblance of normality. Not all staff will return in September and we thank them for their service to Glyn School, we wish them all well in the next stage of their career, and we look forward to welcoming our new members of staff in the new academic year.

In the meantime, I hope the summer break is restful, enjoyable and Covid-free for all our families and staff! Take care, everyone.

Best wishes,

Kevin Gawley, Chair, on behalf of all members of the School Standards Board


Summer 2021 Exam Results Collection

I am writing to confirm our plans for students to collect their Summer 2021 exam results.

Year 13 students: A Level and BTEC Results Day: Tuesday 10 August 2021

Location:

All results will be collected in the Sports Hall. Students should head straight to the Sports Hall when they enter the site. We will also have the gate closest to Sainsbury’s open. 

Time:

Students will be able to collect their exam results from 8.30am on 10 August 2021. We will be on site until 2.00pm to help students with the UCAS clearing process, should they need our assistance.

Process:

Students will collect their results from the Sports Hall. If students need support from staff, they will go out to the Sixth Form Cafeteria, once they have collected their results. 

Please see the links for details of the UCAS Clearing Process

Post Services:

If you would prefer to have the exam results posted home, instead of collecting them on the day, please provide the Exams office with a stamped and self-addressed envelope by Friday 6 August. These envelopes will be placed in the post on Tuesday 10 August; we cannot post them sooner.  

Nominate a Collector:

You can nominate another person to collect your results. This needs to be arranged before Results Day.  Please email r.ramus@glynschool.org if you intend to send a family member or friend to collect exam results on your behalf.

Please do not hesitate to contact me, or any member of the Sixth Form Leadership Team, if you have any questions. 

Miss Thompkins, Assistant Headteacher, Head of Sixth Form

Platinum Jubilee Bank Holiday

Families will be aware of the announcement of an additional Bank Holiday on Friday 3 June 2022 to mark the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.  In line with similar occasions in the past, such as the 2011 Royal Wedding and the 2012 Diamond Jubilee, the Department for Education has amended school regulations in order to encourage all schools to grant this additional day off for students and staff, even where Friday 3 June falls within planned school holidays.  As such, since this additional Bank Holiday falls within our planned 2022 May half term break , Glyn School has taken the decision to take an additional school closure day within that academic year and therefore Glyn School will be closed on Monday 29 November 2021.


Mental Health Support - Summer 2021

Surrey and Borders Partnership NHS Foundation Trust have asked schools to share the following details of summer holiday support with our families:

Please find below a link to the July Online Safety Newsletter. This month's edition includes articles on removing nude images from the internet, WhatsApp group chats, Educate Against Hate, Instagram updates, in-game spending, age appropriate games, and other online safety guidance.

Please do take the time to read the Online Safety Newsletter as it contains very helpful information.  As our students are likely to be spending more time online over the summer break, please ensure that your internet safety filters are in place whilst students are at home.

Key Stage 3 and Key Stage 4: Curriculum Maps

What is my child being taught, and when?

As part of our ongoing efforts to ensure we are communicating effectively with families to enable Parents and Carers to support their child’s education, we would like to share each individual subject’s curriculum map.

For each subject, you will be able to see which unit/topic is being taught each half term, and the rationale for why the respective subject curriculum is sequenced in the way that it is, in terms of guiding students through the five year journey of the subject’s curriculum.  You will also see the ‘intent’ behind each subject’s curriculum.

All subjects can be found here: Curriculum Subjects

Should you have any questions regarding the subject content, or the map itself, please contact your child’s subject teacher, or the relevant Head of each subject.

Mr Hayter, Deputy Headteacher
