There does seem to be a renewed sense of hope in this world. I know we are still at a very dangerous time in the pandemic, but we have seen some green shoots of optimism this week.

A message from the Executive Head
Dear Parents and Guardians

As we complete our third week of lockdown, schools are trying to glean any information available about the government's intentions for the safe return of pupils to their ‘physical’ classes. While we have been guaranteed two weeks’ notice before children return, we still don’t know if they intend to bring back Year groups on a rotational basis or to guide us to prioritise examination year groups, or if there is to be no movement at all after half term.

What we do know is that our best laid plans are always liable to change, often at short notice! Please be assured that we will update you on any guidance that is presented to us, and we will ensure your children's safety and wellbeing will always be our top priority once we are allowed to invite pupis, and staff back to school, and we value your ongoing support and understanding.

In the meantime, please have a safe and restful weekend.

Best wishes

Justin Spanswick
Executive Headteacher

Friday 29 January - Y11 Sixth Form Interviews
Mrs Rogers and Mr Hope will be interviewing the Year 11 girls who are either staying at Claires Court for Sixth Form or are unsure, in small groups of three or four during the afternoon of Friday 29 January. Your daughter has been sent an invitation through Google Classroom with the time of the interview.

Fitness lockdown challenge
To stay fit and active, pupils and staff are taking part in a fitness challenge and can track their walking, running or cycling miles on a shared sheet. Let’s see whether pupils or staff do the most each week. 

3K international virtual running championship
Please find details of the 3K Challenge that Claires Court is competing in against schools from around the world, which is open to boys, staff and parents! There are both year group winners and an overall school winner. Submit your 3K run time via the 'Entry Form' with evidence of your time (e.g. gps watch/phone screenshot) and see the 'Live Leaderboard' for updates. The competition runs until Friday 29 January, with winners announced on 1 February. Please note, where possible you should avoid running alone, in the dark, on busy roads or in crowded areas, and your son should always let you know his intended route.
