Principal Update BVIS HCMC

Mr Simon Higham - Principal

Mr. Simon Higham, Principal

This week, we have seen more of our Primary students return back to school, with the campus now feeling (and sounding) like it is getting back to our new normal.

BVIS HCMC Learning

In talking with teachers this week and asking for their feedback on how the week has progressed, there are two regular themes that have been arising: 

Firstly, the speed and enthusiasm in which our students have settled back into their learning has been astounding. Every student has listened carefully and applied all of our health and safety procedures without exception or question – the children have been a credit to you and our school so please take time to reinforce this praise with them over the weekend. A special treat may be appropriate!

Secondly, returning students are showing increased signs of improvement in their independent skills, following their time accessing our Virtual School. They are eager to learn, be back within a physical school context and taking control of what they are learning. Again, I encourage you to take time at home to see if you observe this yourself as every cloud does certainly have a silver lining.

Next Monday sees the return of our Year 1 students and we are looking forward to seeing them very soon. For parents of Year 1, please read the information sent to you from Ms Rosy regarding drop off and pick up procedures.

BVIS HCMC back to school 2020

Please note that from next week and in line with the guidelines from DOET, we will be easing some of our social distancing procedures. In particular, this will take place in social areas and the canteen. All students will continue to be fully briefed about our health and safety measures as part of the regular learning process.

In line with our original procedures and to maximise the health and safety of all our community, no parents will be allowed access to any part of the school building. Any adult showing a temperature on or above 37.8 degrees will not be allowed access through the school gates.

If you urgently need to visit the school, please always make an appointment, and follow all school protocols. At present, we cannot allow casual ‘drop-in’ visits.

Finally, in reference to my email to all parents last Tuesday, 12th May, please note that from Monday 18th May, the school day will be extended for one hour to finish at 4.05pm on Monday – Thursday each week.

On Fridays, school will finish at 3.05pm as normal.

This will be compulsory for all students from Year 1 to Year 13. When they return to school, for children in Early Years (F1 to F3), parents will be able to pick up their children from 3.05pm should they require to do so.

Please ensure that you have discussed this with your children and made appropriate plans for pick up. All arrangements for the pick-up of bus children have been made accordingly, on your behalf.

If you have any questions or want to arrange appointments in school, please do not hesitate to contact us using the following numbers: 

  • Primary Enquiries:

(028) 3758 0709 / ext. 111

  • Secondary Enquiries:

  • Enquiries linked to Admissions:

I would like to wish all of you a very pleasant and relaxing weekend ahead. Take care and continue to stay safe.

Primary Update BVIS HCMC

Ms Rosy Clark, Head of Primary

Welcome back to school!

How wonderful it is to see the children back in school!

It was a time for BVIS to celebrate and we certainly did so with drums, tambourines, pom poms, clapping and cheering as the children arrived at the school gates. If you were able to drop off your child at the school gate in person, we hope you enjoyed our little, though noisy, celebration!

Of course, we are still waiting for Year 1 and EYFS children to join us, but the vast majority of our classes are here and operating very smoothly. This is because we have put in place five simple rules to help our Primary children remember how to stay safe in school. All our teachers and teaching assistants are supporting the children to understand and follow these rules throughout the day:

Wear my mask
Wash my hands
Spread out
Clean my space
Use my water bottle

BVIS HCMC Primary Virtual Assembly 2020

We have been referring to these five short statements regularly and we also used assembly on Friday as a fun, collective way of embedding the rules. Assembly was online and took the form of a range of activities for the whole school to engage with at the same time in their classrooms with their teachers. It was assembly as we have never experienced before!

Do please reinforce our five simple rules with your children at home. They are good practice for all of us after all! Finally, a huge thank you to all of our families for their support and understanding over the past weeks of school closure – we are delighted to see you again!

Secondary Update BVIS HCMC

Mr Jack Rudin, Head of Secondary

All of us have been so glad to have the students back in school this week and to have the building buzzing again with the sound of their voices. I have been enjoying doing some Chemistry with year 9 some Physics with year 13 and some English with year 10.

We have a meeting with the heads of faculty every week, and this week they all reported on the positive progress of the students in their subject areas. I was very pleased to hear of the positive engagement of students during the Virtual School Experience and it is very encouraging to see how their learning and understanding have developed and we are all excited in working to develop this further, face to face, over the term ahead.

The art work that our IGCSE and A level Art students have been doing over the last few months has been impressive and they are now putting their final finishing touches to the work, now that they are back in school.

Although learning has well and truly continued during the campus closure, it is fair to say that many students have missed their friends and working together with them in class. It is a pleasure to see them returning to this aspect of school life.

They have also had opportunities to have enjoy some much-needed physical exercise in their PE lessons.

Our teachers of Year 11, 12 and 13 have been required to collate all of the evidence needed to send to the exam boards for their final IGCSE and A Level assessments. This has been a huge effort on the part of the students and the teachers to prepare all that is needed. I am very grateful to all of them for the work that they have done in order for our students to achieve the results that they deserve, during this very challenging year.

The health, safety and wellbeing of our students remains the number one priority at BVIS HCMC. Should you have a concern for the welfare of any child in our school, please refer to our Safeguarding poster below:
