COVID19 Updates

04 March 2020

Dear Parents/Carers,

I certainly didn’t expect to bring this term to a close in such a way. We’ve all been working remotely now for two weeks and I think that the staff will join me in saying that we miss working with your children. That’s why we work in education and that’s why our commitment to you and them remains paramount.

It’s been a challenging couple of weeks whilst we’ve all been trying to find our feet but we feel that we are all making progress and will be ready to move forward after Easter. We won’t be setting work over Easter but I’d encourage students to stay in touch with their work, catch up, read and try to utilise some of the learning links on our website. There is also a folder on the VLE of fun Easter activities students can complete while they enjoy their break.

You can find our learning links here: www.onewa.co.uk/student-resource-links and our reading list here: https://bit.ly/3bKLdmb. If you are looking for a family fitness regime we can recommend The Body Coach every morning live at 0900. We also have a page with contacts for a number of support services listed. If you are struggling in any way, I’d urge you to visit this page on our website www.onewa.co.uk/covid19-updates and access the Safeguarding Update from the 23rd March or get in touch with us at school.

Apart from the Bank Holidays on Friday 10th April and Monday 13th April, the Academy will be open to children of keyworkers over Easter so we will remain available if we are needed. The best ways to get in touch are through our Facebook Page, calling the Academy main number or using closure@onewa.co.uk.

The term starts on the 20th of April and we will assume that the Academy will remain closed. If we receive instruction to open, we will communicate this with you through normal channels. We will continue to set work via the VLE. After Easter, we will start to introduce a little more normality in our social media feeds and share some of the incredible stories and work from our students.

When we start back it is likely that our Free School Meal (FSM) provision will change and move to a national voucher scheme; you may have seen this on the news. As I write this we are receiving guidance from our sponsor and from the Government. It is important that the solution is fair and ensures that families are supported, we ask that you give us time to plan properly and communicate this to all. I would expect an update during the Easter break. In the meantime, our admin team will be working behind the scenes to collate email addresses. It’s important that we have an email address as this will be the likely way that FSM vouchers will be distributed.

Our current system will still be available over Easter with deliveries taking place Monday 6th and Tuesday 14th April. We are trying to ensure that this service continues. If you have any questions, please email us on closure@onewa.co.uk or send us a Facebook message. I should also remind you that travel into the Academy is not permitted.

This will be a different Easter break, perhaps one that is more peaceful. Under normal circumstances, we’d all be busy planning activities for the children and perhaps some days out. Our challenge will be to find new ways to fill the days, it’s a good time to spring clean and for us all to do those jobs that we’ve been putting off. Perhaps getting the children to help out in the garden or around the house? Whatever you do remember that we aren’t stuck at home, we are safe at home. Let’s be thankful for those frontline services and especially the NHS staff who are going above and beyond to keep us all safe and to look after those in need.

Please take care and stay safe.

Yours faithfully,

Craig Cooling

Dear Parents/Carers,

As you may have seen, details were published today of how grades will be awarded to students taking GCSEs, AS levels and A levels. Details for how vocational and technical qualifications will be awarded this summer will follow.
Attached to this letter is a message to students from Sally Collier, who leads Ofqual, the organisation which oversees exams and qualifications in this country. That letter outlines the process, but I also wanted to ensure you heard from me today so that you understood how grades will be awarded to students this summer. You can of course also ask me any questions if anything is not clear.

Your child’s teachers will provide grades in each subject they are taking. These assessments will be based on what the teacher believed each student would have achieved had they sat exams this summer, and on a range of evidence.

This will include:

  • Students’ classwork and bookwork, or performances in subjects like PE, music or drama
  • Any non-exam assessment, whether or not completed
  • The results of any assignments or mock exams, and
  • Any previous exam results.

We have not been asked to set any additional homework or mock exams to make these assessed grades.
Teachers will also be asked to rank students in order for each subject, so as to split students awarded the same grade. These grades will be confidential and teachers will not be allowed to share these grades with students. We have been asked to send these grades to Ofqual by the end of May/start of June.

Ofqual will then look at all the grades and decide what the final grades for each student in each subject should be. It is developing the model it will use to do this, so all grades are fair, but it expects to use a range of information to do this such as cohort prior attainment and previous exam results at schools.

Your child will get their final grades in the summer – Ofqual has said that results will be provided no later than they had been expected, in August, but that the objective is to provide grades earlier than that so that you and your child have certainty as soon as possible.

There will be an appeals process and Ofqual has also said that it is working with exam boards so that there is an opportunity, if possible, for students to sit exams, if they would like to, in the autumn term. More information on that will follow, and I will share that when it is available from Ofqual.

Clearly these are unprecedented circumstances, and the situation in all walks of life at the moment is far from ideal, but I hope this provides some level of certainty of how the process will work this summer for all exam grades. Ofqual has said it would like to reassure you that the grades your child will get this summer will look exactly the same as in previous years, and will have equal status with universities, colleges and employers, so that young people can move forward in their lives as planned.

Further information can be found here: https://www.gov.uk/government/news/how-gcses-as-a-levels-will-be-awarded-in-summer-2020. I hope this gives answers to questions you may have, but if not, please do not hesitate to contact me. In the meantime, I hope you and your family are staying safe and are in good health.

Yours sincerely,

Craig Cooling

Dear Parents/Carers,

I wanted to start by thanking you today for giving us the time to get systems up and running. Your patience has been appreciated by staff and so have your messages of support. I’m delighted to say that we’ve had record numbers of students using the VLE to access school work and I think we’ve all started to find the best ways to learn in different ways. Our IT Team have been busy ensuring everyone has access and if you need any advice or support please contact either 01902 623 145 or closure@onewa.co.uk.

The update today will talk a little bit about building structure. We all know that routines are key for children. It doesn’t matter what the routine is, just that it is consistent. However, these are still new habits that need to be formed and we shouldn’t expect them to happen overnight. We are asking children to adapt very quickly. We should give them the opportunity to learn the new habits and routines in a new setting, School timetables are very different to home, we need to work together to help you find the balance but more importantly give the children time to adapt. This is a huge upheaval and we all need to take our time to adapt.

We know that our families will be having a range of different approaches to home learning. We cannot control how you do this. However, we can support families by providing access to staff through email and to enable them to carry on learning. It’s also important to support the mental health and emotional state of the children during this transitional phase. We should not expect our children to be able to understand what is happening and the scale of the time we are talking about (because nobody does!) As with the routines, we need to take our time with this. Children WILL learn! We can model how to adapt to learning at home without panic. Reading, cooking, cleaning, gardening, helping with younger children, listening to others, being kind. All things that children learn daily and will do without too much intervention. Life is learning, change things slowly and the whole family will find it easier to adapt. And if you need some extra support or advice, our senior staff are on hand to speak to you and help out.

I have attached an excellent parent factsheet from The Key regarding home learning. Given all of this advice, information and the constant flow of work, my advice would be not to panic. Give yourself and your family time to adapt. We’re here right with you and our aim is to support the change gradually and not create more pressure at this time.

On a different note, we need to ask all visitors to stay away from the Academy. The country is on lockdown and travel into the Academy is for essential visits only, this includes dropping children off and collecting them.

We continue to provide a delivery service of Free School Meals. We are trying to ensure that this service continues to support our families. If you have any questions, please email us on closure@onewa.co.uk or send us a Facebook message.

We’ve received some enquiries about trips that are happening later in the year or in 2021. All of our trips are currently under review and unless you have heard otherwise will continue to run as normal. We are in constant discussion with tour operators and following strict advice from Government departments. If you have concerns or questions about payments, please email finance@onewa.co.uk. We will be in touch nearer the date when a decision has to be made about the individual trips going ahead.

I’ll finish off by saying that we are constantly reviewing the learning links on the website, you can find them here: http://www.onewa.co.uk/student-resource-links/. You can also find an age-appropriate reading list here. If you are looking for a family fitness regime we can recommend The Body Coach every morning live at 0900. There are nearly one million people from all over the world taking part every day and we’d encourage you to visit The Body Coach on Facebook to join in.

Please follow Government advice by washing your hands frequently and reduce your social interactions – here’s some Government guidance on social distancing: https://bit.ly/2UxH51F.

24th March 2020

A short update today as there are some brief areas that I need to communicate:

Our remote learning (VLE) is now in operation and we will continue to improve offerings and contact as time moves on.

  • If you are self-isolating or showing symptoms of Covid-19 as outlined by the NHS, PLEASE do not leave your house, PLEASE do not visit the Academy and ensure everyone in your household isolates themselves for the advised 14-day period. If you need to pick anything up from the Academy, email closure@onewa.co.uk and we will arrange a contactless delivery.
    • The academy are no longer accepting visitors on to site – if you need to speak to someone at the academy please call 01902 623 111 or email closure@onewa.co.uk
  • We’ve published some guidance on support services for young people who might be struggling to cope with the current developments. You can find that on our website: http://www.onewa.co.uk/covid19-updates
  • The Department for Education has alerted us to a scam email currently doing the rounds all over the country. The DfE has been informed that some parents have received an email stating the following: ‘As schools will be closing, if you’re entitled to free school meals, please send your bank details and we’ll make sure you’re supported’. It has been confirmed that this is a scam email and is not official. We urge parents that if you receive any emails like this, please do not respond, and delete it immediately.

Even more importantly, please follow Government advice by washing your hands frequently and reduce your social interactions – here’s some Government guidance on social distancing: https://bit.ly/2UxH51F

Yours faithfully,

Craig Cooling

23 March 2020

Safeguarding Update 

Dear Parents/carers,

The events of the last week have been challenging and, as an Academy, we have done our best to answer every question asked of us in an open and honest way. We’d like to deal with the mental health of our students in exactly the same way. We know that many of our young people will be struggling with the changes and the uncertainty over exams, although you can find information on the latter here: https://www.gov.uk/government/news/further-details-on-exams-and-grades-announced

There will also be heightened anxiety generally. We believe that we can start to manage this anxiety by limiting time on social media and ensuring that we get any information about Covid-19 from the NHS website and official sources. Following the guidance is key and starting to build daily routines and structures will help us all adjust.

Of course, the safety and wellbeing of our students continues to be of paramount importance and there are lots of useful physical and mental advice support services for you to share with your children. We’ve listed some that we recommend below.

ChatHealth (School Nurse Services): A confidential text messaging service that enables children and young people, 11 years and older, to contact their local, public health, school nursing team. This is available on 07480 635486.

Kooth: A free, safe and anonymous online support for young people (11-19 years plus) available at all times at www.kooth.com. It includes accessing online counselling support. Monday-Friday: noon-10pm. Saturday and Sunday: 6pm – 10pm.

Health For Teens Website: For general health advice – www.healthforteens.co.uk

Wolverhampton 360: Young People’s Substance Misuse Services are still available as and when needed. Please phone 0300 123 33 60 or email bsmhft.recoverynearyou@nhs.net

Brook (Sexual Health Support: 11 years old plus): Brook are contacting young people directly to discuss the appropriate mode of support for their personal circumstances.

Childline: Website is operating www.childline.org.uk and the counselling service is still available; please call 0800 1111.

Papyrus (Youth Suicide Prevention charity): Please call 0800 0684141 or email pat@papyrus-uk.org

The BBC also has an excellent resource on protecting your mental health: www.bbc.co.uk/news/health-51873799

It is also important to state that our staff are also picking up emails and are contactable. In the first instance, it might be worth contacting me to discuss options but if a student has a concern and would like to speak to a particular member of staff, we’ll do all we can to arrange a telephone chat. To contact me or the safeguarding team at ONEWA, email lclarke@onewa.co.uk.

Thank you for your continued support.

Yours faithfully,

Mrs Leanne Clarke
Senior Leader Safeguarding

Click here for information provided by the DfE for parents and carers.

Dear Parents/Carers

Now that we have managed the school closure and done all we can to ensure a continuation of education via remote means, our attention turns to exams and qualifications for students in years 11 to 14. Over the last 24 hours, we have received a barrage of Government and exam board communication and instead of posting links we wanted to distil this information and break it down. We know that everyone is concerned but students across the United Kingdom are in the same position and we are committed to making sure that students aren’t disadvantaged in any way.

The Government has provided clarification on how qualifications and grades for students who are due to complete courses this year will be awarded. We have provided an official link to the statement below. It is self-explanatory but we felt that it might be useful to summarise the key points:

https://www.gov.uk/government/news/further-details-on-exams-and-grades-announced

  • Teachers will be asked to make a judgement on the grade they feel students would have achieved if they’d sat all exams and completed courses as normal. This judgement will inform the grade they are awarded for their subjects. Importantly, teachers will be able to base their judgement on a wide range of evidence and not just on most recent mock exam results. This means that tests, essays, classwork and homework etc completed during studies can be taken into consideration by teachers. This also means that the predicted grade that teachers recorded on reports may potentially differ from the final grade they suggest should be awarded. Teachers will do everything they can to ensure students achieve the grades they were on track to achieve.
  • For sixth form students, the prior attainment (ie the grades achieved in GCSEs) will also be taken into consideration by exam boards alongside the grades suggested by teachers. This is nothing to worry about- the exam boards will be looking at what students with similar GCSE grades typically achieve in the subjects undertaken in the sixth form.
  • The plan is for the exam boards to inform students of the grades they’ve been awarded at the end of July, this is earlier than normal.
  • An appeal process will be put in place if students feel the grades they are awarded don’t sufficiently reflect what they feel they would have achieved had they sat all exams as normal. At the moment we don’t have any information about how this process will work.
  • Students will be awarded full A level, BTEC and GCSE qualifications and will eventually receive certificates as normal. The value of these A levels, BTECs and GCSE will be no different from those awarded to students in previous years.
  • Although full qualifications will be awarded, there will be the opportunity to sit exams in subjects early next academic year (ie at some point from September 2020 onwards) if students wish to do this. This may be something students will want to consider and we will speak to everybody a little later in the year when more detail is available.

There are a few more points I’d like to raise now that we have more clarification on how qualifications will be awarded:

  • Firstly, the completion of any coursework that teachers require students to complete at home is vital now that we know their judgement will be used to inform final grades. This is particularly important for subjects like art (May 20th deadline) and technology.
  • Secondly, for sixth form students, the advice from universities is don’t rush decisions. If students have heard back from all universities they’ve applied to before March 31st (which will apply to most students), they have until May 5th to make firm and insurance choices. Universities will be contacting applicants direct with regards to how they will be moving forward with applications and offers.
  • If students have applied to go to university, make sure student finance applications are completed. This is something done at home with parents or carers.
  • Finally, please refrain from contacting teachers about suggested awarded grades. Teachers are working with students and not against them. We always have the best interests of students at heart and teachers need time to reflect back on the wealth of assessment done with students over the period of study before making their final judgment.

Finally, the Government has put together a document of frequently asked questions about exams and you can find that at this shortened link https://bit.ly/2xT80xj. There is very little we can add at this point but will do all our best to reassure students at this difficult time and ensure that we communicate information as and when we receive it.

The most important thing I can say now, given all this information, is to ask students NOT to give up on your studies. Complete coursework, study and continue to work hard. In turn, my priority is to ensure that none of our students face a barrier when it comes to moving onto the next stage of their lives – whether that’s further or higher education, an apprenticeship or a job. Staff are on hand to answer any subject-specific questions from parents, carers and students and the head of each year will continue support students with any concerns they might have or any emotional troubles or anxiety brought on by these events.

We will be in touch with further updates. In the meantime, stay safe and continue to follow guidance from Government departments and the NHS.

Yours faithfully,

Craig Cooling

20 March 2020

Dear Parents/Carers,

As you know, we are all facing extraordinary challenges and the situation is placing pressure on all parts of society. Our staff have been doing all they can to keep our school open since this crisis began and I would like to pay tribute to their remarkable commitment. They have been extraordinary and will continue to play their part over the coming weeks.

The most recent scientific advice on how to further limit the spread of COVID-19 is clear. If children can stay safely at home, they should, to limit the chance of the virus spreading. That is why the government has asked parents to keep their children at home, wherever possible, and asked schools to remain open only for those children who absolutely need to attend. No date has been set for when schools will re-open for all students.

From Monday, and throughout the Easter holidays, the school will continue to be open for the following groups of students:

  • Children whose parents are frontline which includes those who work in the following sectors and industries: health and social care, education and childcare, key public services, local and national government, food and other necessary goods, public safety and national security, transport, utilities, communication and financial services. For clarity please visit the official Government list by visiting this link: https://bit.ly/3deTRLh. Please email closure@onewa.co.uk if you are a frontline worker and require our support with your childcare needs. If you think that you fall within the critical categories above you should confirm with your employer that, based on their business continuity arrangements, your specific role is necessary for the continuation of this essential public service.
  • Those classed as what the Secretary of State described as “vulnerable children”. These could be those who have a social worker and those with EHCPs. We have details of these children and have already been in touch with those effected.

From Monday 23rd March and throughout this period, our school will provide care for these children. The students who are attending need to be in at normal school times and in uniform, and bring with them with a change of clothes suitable for physical activity each day. Toast will be provided for breakfast, as well as a school lunch. Students should report to the sixth form centre.

Children who do not fall into the groups listed above should remain at home with appropriate care. Parents should not rely for childcare upon those who are advised to be in the stringent social distancing category such as grandparents, friends, or family members with underlying conditions. Parents should also do everything they can to ensure children are not mixing socially in a way which can continue to spread the virus. They should observe the same social distancing principles as adults.

Another priority over the last 24 hours has been ensuring the provision of food for supported children, children of key workers who will attend the Academy and children who receive free school meals.

After receiving guidance from the Department for Education today and in consultation with our catering company, Chartwells, we can do the following:

  • Children of keyworkers and supported children who are attending the Academy during the closure will be fed during their stay with us.
  • Grab bags for free school meal students will be available from the Academy from 1130 until 1330 every weekday (including the Easter holidays).

Monday 23rd March will be the first day that we operate this model and we will make full provision for free school meal students. However, as time goes on, we will have to reduce the numbers if we find that the grab bags aren’t being collected.

If your child receives free school meals and the grab bag cannot be collected, please send us a private Facebook message or email closure@onewa.co.uk and we will do all we can to support you.

Another key announcement is that tests and exams will not take place this summer. For children and young people, who have worked so hard to prepare for their SATs, GCSEs or A levels, this will be upsetting and we sympathise with them. At the same time, we understand the decision the Government has made and we are reassured that children’s grades in GCSEs and A levels will be awarded on the basis of moderated assessment, in conjunction with the exam boards and Ofqual. This means that the hard work students have done will be rewarded. It may not feel quite the same, and nor is it, but they will receive grades that will progress them to the next stage of their lives.

We will continue to provide home learning resources for your child. The academy website and VLE will be the main platform to set work for students and staff will set work each week. We will provide work packs for those without internet access and teachers will be available via school email during school hours for students and parents.

In the meantime, I would once again like to take this opportunity to thank you wholeheartedly for your understanding and ongoing support in helping us to manage this unprecedented situation.

Yours faithfully,
Craig Cooling
Principal

18 March 2020

Further to the announcement by Gavin Williamson, Secretary of State for Education, we have been instructed to close the Academy from the end of the day on Friday. We have been busy, working in the background, in readiness for this eventuality and we will now be pushing the button on a number of contingency plans.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/education-51643556

Please be patient with us. We will be communicating plans over the next 24 hours but we need a little time to gather our thoughts, talk to staff and make sure we update everyone in a calm and clear way. We will continue to operate our messaging service out-of-hours but we are unable to answer any questions about the closure or the repercussions until we have received further guidance from the Department for Education and our sponsor, Ormiston Academies Trust.

We are awaiting guidance from the Department for Education on exams and are unable to speculate on plans, we will update you as soon as we know anything.

Further to this statement, we would like to ask that parents with the following professions make themselves aware to us by emailing closure@onewa.co.uk. The professions are NHS staff, the police and delivery drivers. We already have details of children with education, health and care plans.

The health and wellbeing of students regardless of whether they are in our care or not is always paramount and will continue to be. I will write again shortly.

Thank you.

Dear parents and carers,

I am sure you are aware of the outbreak of Coronavirus and the subsequent confirmed cases in the UK. With this in mind, I am writing to you with information and advice about the outbreak and our plans for the coming weeks. At Ormiston NEW Academy, we take the health and safety of our students and staff very seriously so we are sharing guidance from Public Health England (PHE) on the steps you should be taking. The academy are planning as best we can for future events and would appreciate your support and understanding. I can confirm that there is currently no cause for concern at the academy.

Actions we are taking:

  • Regularly reviewing government and health guidance and will keep you informed of any developments
  • Keeping the academy clean to prevent the spread of any virus
  • Raising awareness of how to prevent the spread of the virus with staff and students
  • Ensuring there is soap available at all times for students and staff to wash their hands regularly

Following advice from PHE, students and staff are being encouraged to wash their hands with soap and water regularly, especially before eating and after going to the toilet. As a secondary measure, students are permitted to bring hand sanitizer into school. If you wish to send your child in with hand sanitizer, please ensure they understand how to use this appropriately. Staff will monitor the use of hand sanitizer as closely as possible; however, hand sanitizer is sent in at your discretion.

To prevent the spread of infection please make sure you and your child follow these general principles to prevent any respiratory virus:

  • Wash your hands often – with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, or use an alcohol based sanitizer if soap and water are unavailable
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands
  • Avoid close contact with people who are unwell
  • Cover your cough and/or sneeze with a tissue and throw the tissue in a bin
  • If there is no tissue available, cough/sneeze into your sleeve near to the elbow
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces in the home

We are also currently reviewing our contingency plan, in the event of a school closure. To date we have received no guidance as to whether this will be action taken, however the academy want to be proactive in dealing with such an event.

Should the government take the decision to close schools, please note the following:

  • We have remote access to the parent/student database (SIMS) so will be able to access data (including contact information) from outside of the academy site, if required
  • Our website and social media platforms will provide up to date information – please ensure you check these regularly
  • Our text messaging system will also be used as a method of communication
  • Our admin and business functions will continue to operate remotely. This means answering parental queries via email (assuming volumes are reasonable)
  • Student learning – it is vital that, if the school closes, students continue to work. Whilst there is no substitute to classroom learning with a teacher, we will set appropriate work, both electronically and revision based.
  • Students will have access to their academy emails and can communicate with their class teachers via the email system. Students can use this method of communication to submit work to their teachers for feedback.
  • Parents can help us by doing the following:
    • Making sure your child has somewhere quiet to work
    • Ensure your child is working at the expected level that they would do so in school
    • Any work that is required to be submitted via email, is done so within the allocated deadline

The Department for Education have set up a helpline to call; 0800 046 8687. If you require further information, please also visit https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/novel-coronavirus-2019-ncov-guidance-to-assistprofessionals-in-advising-the-general-public/guidance-to-assist-professionals-in-advising-the-general-public

If you are worried about any symptoms, please call NHS 111 – do not go directly to your GP or Health Care environment.

Please be reassured that we will contact parents as and when information changes.

If you or your child have any further concerns or questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Yours faithfully
Craig Cooling
Principal
