16 issue Parent Bulletin 24-04-20


Dear Parents and Carers,


Thank you for your excellent support with home and virtual learning. Our staff would not be able to continue to deliver a good education without you. I am very grateful for all the efforts you are making to ensure your children continue to login to Show My Homework daily, attend lessons and submit work of a high standard. I do hope you too have been able to observe some of our great teachers and gain a unique insight into lessons at AGFS.


As we have upscaled the number of live online lessons this term, to manage staff workload, it has been necessary to reduce the number of student wellbeing calls. I hope you feel we have got the balance about right but do remember we continue to be here for you. The central school email account ( is monitored daily and staff will be quick to respond if you need us.


As you know, there is still no news from the government as to when schools will reopen. As soon as we hear anything we will be in touch. In the meantime, we will continue to do all we can to ensure students do not fall behind.


On a positive note, we are expecting the publication of our Section 8 Ofsted report (11-12 February, 2020) sometime in the near future. I look forward to updating you accordingly when I have further news.


Wishing you and your family the very best at this challenging time.


Rhys Spiers
