Girls’ Rugby Sessions

This term we have been very lucky to have a Welsh Rugby player teaching our key stage 3 girls in school. Kelsey is flying to France next week with the Welsh team to compete in the six nations.

Kelsey Jones has really inspired some of our girls to take up the sport which is amazing. She also took one of our student’s rugby which the whole Welsh rugby team signed.

We are sure that all of our students want to wish Kelsey and her teammates the best of luck in the forthcoming Six Nations!

Spring Term Arrangements

Following the Secretary of State for Education’s announcement that the start of the Spring Term will be delayed for the vast majority of students, Mr Bell will be sending a letter to all parents confirming arrangements on Friday 1st January. Further details will be available in this letter but the most important information is listed below.

Week Commencing Monday 4th January

It is recognised that it is safer for the vast majority of students to remain at home this week. Therefore, all year groups will remain at home and Y11 mock exams will NOT take place in this week. Year 11 exams will begin on Monday 11th January (more details provided in Mr Bell’s letter).

From Tuesday 5th January, Year 11 students will receive live lessons through Microsoft Teams and a timetable will be confirmed on Monday 4th January. Government have clarified that it is not compulsory for schools to set remote learning for students in Years 7 to 10. Students in these year groups will receive links to optional learning that compliments their curriculum on Microsoft Teams from Tuesday 5th January.

Week Commencing Monday 11th January

Year 11 students will return to school to begin their mock exams. Students will follow the second week of their existing mock exam timetable throughout this week. All other year groups will begin receive live and directed lessons delivered through Microsoft Teams from Monday 11th January. Students in Years 7 to 10 will receive a remote learning timetable for this week by Thursday 7th January.

Week Commencing Monday 18th January

It is anticipated that all students will be in school from Monday 18th January. Year 11 students will continue their mock examination timetables (this will be the first week of their mock exam timetable).

Lateral Flow Testing

The school will be undertaking extensive training and preparations to begin mass Covid testing from Monday 11th January. Parents and carers will receive further information and consent forms before students are due to return to school

Open Evening 2020

Due to Covid-19 restrictions, we are sadly unable to hold our annual Open Evening and Mornings. We fully understand that this is a very important time for Year 6 pupils and their families to visit secondary schools to experience their atmosphere, culture and ethos.

To support pupils and their families we will be releasing a video introducing SWR before the end of September. Our Headteacher, Mr Bell, will also be hosting a live Q&A forum on Wednesday 30th September, More details can be found by reading the letter below.

September Re-Opening

We are looking forward to welcoming all students back to SWR at the start of September. Our Headteacher, Mr Bell, will send a letter to all parents on 24th August explaining the detailed plans that are in place to enable all students and staff to safely return to school. Our extensive risk assessment can be found by clicking the ‘Covid-19’ tab at the top of this page or clicking this link: http://swr.gloucs.sch.uk/covid-19

Students will return to school as follows:

  • Wednesday 2nd September: Year 7 students only
  • Thursday 3rd September: Year 7 students and Year 11 prefects only
  • Friday 4th September: Year 7 students and Year 10 students (GCSE Induction)
  • Monday 7th September: All students

As parents and carers will read in the letter, students will be expected to wear full school uniform and the timings of the day remain 8:55 to 3:20pm. However, we kindly ask that students are not on site before 8:45am as staff need to support students and direct them to designated areas.

After a long time away, we know that students will feel a mixture of excitement and probably worry about returning to school. As parents will read in the forthcoming letter, our priority in the first term is to support students in returning to learning and school. We cannot wait to get started and please contact Main Reception if you have any queries.

GCSE Results 2020

We would like to congratulate all of our students who have received their GCSE results today. In this uniquely challenging year it is important to make clear that our students have done extremely well and worked hard for their GCSEs over the past two years, they fully deserve the results that they get today and should feel proud of their achievements.

Over the five years, we have always been very proud of this cohort’s independence, resilience and aspiration and we are delighted that they are now able to access the next stage of their education in local colleges, sixth forms and apprenticeships. They are an impressive collection of young adults. On behalf of all our staff, I wish them the very best in the next stage of their journeys.

Jon Bell – Headteacher
