November Curriculum Recovery Sessions 2021

Dear Parents/Carers,

We are pleased to be able to offer a series of curriculum recovery sessions to our Year 11 students during the second week of the half-term break. This is to support the students in addressing any gaps in learning and to further prepare them for their GCSEs next Summer. These recovery sessions are optional, and will take place between Monday 1st and Friday 5th November. There will be a maximum of 30 attendees for each session offered. For the mathematics and science sessions, students are only allowed to sign up for ONE morning and ONE afternoon session to ensure that all students have the opportunity to attend a session. Students may wear non-uniform, but sensible, warm clothing is compulsory. For the mathematics sessions it is important that they sign up for the correct level.

The sessions will run from 9:00am – 12:00pm, and from 12:30pm – 3:30pm. Students are expected to arrive on time, fully equipped and ready to learn. They will not be allowed to leave the academy site during these sessions, so it is vital that they bring refreshments and snacks with them. The students will not be able to be on site before or after the sessions. To ensure that the academy remains Covid secure, all students are expected to maintain our expectations with regards to social distancing, wear a face mask when entering and moving around the academy, and wash/sanitise their hands regularly. Failure to adhere to this will result in the student being sent home.

If you would like your son/daughter to attend a session, please complete the application form that can be accessed here; by Wednesday 20th October 2021.

Yours faithfully,

Sarah Forde
Head of Chaucer College
