At AGFS we are committed to fairness and equality. The opportunity to empower young people, regardless of background, to grow and be successful is at the heart of everything we do. We will not tolerate discrimination of any kind and seek opportunities to celebrate diversity. We continue to reflect upon and develop our approach to inclusion whilst holding a sense of pride in the difference we are making to the lives of all our students.
Scholars have now graduated into the next academic year group and are referred to as such (e.g., 10N are now referred to as 11N).
I was delighted to receive confirmation from the UK government earlier this week that we will be permitted to bring all scholars back into school for a face to face meeting before the end of term. This news has prompted a real sense of excitement amongst the staff and plans are already underway to ensure we use this time to maximum effect. Scholars will return to school for a 90-minute strategy session at the following times:
|Tutor Group||Date of Meeting||Time of Meeting|
|11H||Thursday 25 June||15:30-16:30|
|11N||Friday 26 June 15:30-16:30||15:30-16:30|
|8H & 9H||Wednesday 1 July||13:50-14:50|
|11S||Thursday 2 July||15:30-16:30|
|11W||Friday 3 July||10:00-11:00|
|8N & 9N||Monday 6 July||10:00-11:00|
|8S & 9S||Tuesday 7 July||10:00-11:00|
|8W & 9W||Wednesday 8 July||13:50-14:50|
|10H & 10N||Thursday 9 July||16:00-17:00|
|10S & 10W||Friday 10 July||16:00-17:00|
It is very important that scholars arrive promptly for their designated meeting slot. There will be no onsite provision for food. Scholars must wear full school uniform and do not require a bag or any stationery for their meeting. Upon arrival all scholars will be registered and receive a health and safety briefing. Meetings will be led by a senior member of staff and provide an opportunity for scholars to talk with teachers and each other. Scholars will prepare for and reflect upon their end of year examinations, discuss wellbeing, summer study and plan for September. There will also be an opportunity for scholars to ask any questions. You will receive a further letter which will include guidance on how you can confirm your child’s attendance to their designated meeting.
I would like to take this opportunity once again assure you that all appropriate social distancing and hygiene measures are now in place at school. These new routines have been thoroughly tested and I am confident that we are fully prepared to welcome additional scholars on site. In preparation for returning to school we are asking parents to read this guidance document with your child: https://tinyurl.com/ meetingscholarguidance.
