Plans for September – 30th June 2020

I am writing with a brief update on where we currently stand with school re-opening plans for the new school year.

The Government have announced that all schools will be open “with full attendance” from September. As of yet, we have no accompanying information or guidance to share with you as to how this will be implemented. The government should publish guidance this week. We will be ready for that guidance and will work to it. In the meantime, I wanted to give you some interim indication of our thinking.

The clearest message to all parents and children is to assume that the new school term will start as usual in September and to make your usual ‘back to school’ preparations including uniform and equipment.

Over the next few days, year teams will be getting in touch to discuss how things are and to give you the chance to ask any questions you may have about what the return will look like in the autumn.

THE RIGHT STEPS TO YOUR SUCCESS

Our Vision, Mission & Values

At Frederick Gent, we pride ourselves on the excellent pastoral care provided and the positive relationships that we foster across the schools – between staff and pupils, staff and parents and between the pupils themselves. The size of the school and the sense of community within it ensures that at Frederick Gent School every child is known, valued and matters. We have very high expectations for what our young people can achieve, not just academically but also through the personal growth and social development that we foster in the students at our school.

These values are encapsulated in our mission that, as a school, we will ensure that in everything we do we provide Quality, Care and Success.

This prospectus will give you a sense of how we deliver on these aims. We are a school with a broad

and varied curriculum which allows pupils to widen their horizons and experience success in a variety of different subjects. We are also a school that provides an extensive range of extra-curricular activities

to ensure pupils enjoy their time with us and are exposed to new and exciting opportunities which allows them to grow personally and socially.

We are determined that pupils will leave the school as confident and ambitious young people who are well prepared to embark on a happy and successful life beyond the school gates.
