Welcome back to our first Weekly Highlights of Term 3 and thank you for engaging and connecting with our weekly update to you.
In particular, I would like to welcome all of our new families whose children are just beginning their educational journey at BVIS. It is our privilege to be able to educate your children and please do not hesitate to contact us should you require any help, advice or support.
Both before and during the holiday period, it has been very reassuring to read about and experience a movement back to what is becoming our ‘new normal’. As a school, the health and safety of all of our community is our number one priority and we continue to plan forward to ensure students and staff are the safest that they can be, whilst also looking at ways to move closer towards a return to a pre pandemic school week.
Both Primary and Secondary leadership teams are regularly monitoring and evaluating our current procedures and make necessary adjustments where necessary. One such area is the return of Extra Curricular Activities. A limited number of clubs will start again in Secondary next week and we have plans to introduce similar provision to Primary students after vaccinations have been completed.
We remain committed to further enrich the educational experiences that we offer all BVIS students whilst working within the guidelines and frameworks that are set by our local authorities.
As outlined in my letter to all EYFS, Primary and Year 7 parents this week, vaccinations have begun in school today for Year 5, 6 and 7 students. When we have more information from the local authorities regarding vaccinations for F3 to Year 4 students, this will be shared immediately with all relevant parents.
Over the Term 2 holiday, I am pleased to confirm that we have successfully competed the next phases in our planned facility updates. These include:
These whole school developments have been influenced from parental feedback from our annual Parent Satisfaction Survey. Thanks to your comments and suggestions, our school environment continues to develop and grow to maximise the learning opportunities for all BVIS students.
Term 3 is a vital time for our external examination students. With a mixture of excellent teaching and learning and a great deal of hard work and effort, we are confident that our students are well prepared and ready to achieve grades that they deserve.
On behalf of everyone at school, we wish all of our Year 11, 12 and 13 students all the very best in their forthcoming examinations.
Over the weekend, take time to talk to your children about their aspirations for Term 3.
Consider the following questions together:
Regular reflection time helps to both evaluate what you have done and how you managed to do it. It also helps you to focus upon what you have understood and most importantly, your next steps for even better learning.
