HEADTEACHER’S BLOG – 27.03.20

It has been a week unlike any other that I have witnessed throughout my career and as I sit in college compiling my weekly blog I miss the energy and life that is usually pulsating through the building.

As everyone is acutely aware these are extremely challenging times and never before has it been more important for Team Wright Robinson and our community to ‘pull together’.

This week I read a quote saying ‘social distancing doesn’t mean giving up on each other, it means that we just have to be creative about how we look out for one another and how we stay in touch’.

There is no doubt that it is more important than ever at this time to ensure that where we can, we help and support those in our communities who are most vulnerable during this crisis. Clearly we must adhere to the government guidelines around ‘Social Distancing’ and non-essential travel. However, there are still ways by which we can care for those around us who need help. If the college can help in any way with this please do not hesitate to contact us.

Should any families be experiencing hardship at this time please follow the link below for information on how to access financial support.

With regards to Free School Meals the college went to great lengths to ensure that all students were provided for in accordance with their eligibility. Information will be provided on Monday as to how eligible families can apply to join the City Wide Free School Meals Scheme which will be accessible to students from Wright Robinson once the Asda Voucher has elapsed on Friday 3rd April.

All that remains is for me to wish everyone well. Please take care and stay safe.
