Year 10

CLICK HERE FOR YEAR 10 INSTRUCTIONS  -  23/03/2020 to 03/04/2020

Please see above instructions for two weeks’ work that your child can complete while at home. Heads of subject will be regularly emailing pupils directly and subject staff will be available to answer questions and set additional work, should it be required. Pupils will not receive formal feedback initially but this is something we are working to be able to provide, should the disruption continue beyond Easter.

We strongly believe that, despite these extremely difficult circumstances, a continuance of some sense of normality and structure is essential and, therefore, would stress that your child is encouraged to follow their normal timetable with appropriate breaks. It may not be possible for your child to follow this timetable exactly but please encourage them to spend the same time on each subject they would if in school across a total of 5 hours per day. Year 10/12 have the potential to be severely disadvantaged by this loss of curriculum time as they approach their final year and their external exams. It is essential that they carry on working to the best of their ability to ensure learning is not affected. There has been no communication of any special dispensation being applied to these year groups at this time.

Our intention, once schools are allowed to open again, is to complete mock exams as planned. This would enable pupils to have something to work towards to demonstrate the learning they have completed over this disrupted period and give essential feedback to those pupils preparing for public exams in 2021.

Staff will be available via email to answer questions during the school day, although this may not always be immediate due to illness or their own childcare requirements. The primary source of contact for pupils should be their emails and we would recommend they check these daily for further instructions/work.

School email can be accessed by:

  1. Accessing www.office.com
  2. Sign in using your normal school login details and password
  3. Click on Outlook, your school emails will appear

Any queries regarding logins to email, Doddle, MyMaths, MathsWatch, GCSEPod or any other systems recommended should be directed to MCourtman@cromwell.cambs.sch.uk or JFinch@cromwell.cambs.sch.uk

Thank you for your support in these difficult times.
