Welcome to Plantsbrook School

'Be The Best That You Can Be'

Message from the Headteacher.

As we end this most unusual of half terms, I wanted to thank all parents for supporting your children and us as a school in these difficult times. I know that it isn’t easy but the work that many of your children have produced at home is stunning and we are very proud of them. I would also like to pay tribute to the vast majority of our students who are observing the lockdown rules in a very responsible and mature way. I think this time is particularly difficult for teenagers who naturally want to socialise with their friends. The fact that they are sacrificing this for the sake of their family and wider community speaks volumes about their character. We are getting reports, however, that a small number are not observing the rules. 
If necessary, please remind your children what is expected of them. They should not be meeting more than one friend at a time and that should be outside in the fresh air, at two metres distance. Meeting in groups of 3 or more is not allowed at the moment. If we are to open more widely after June 8th to Y10 and Y12 students, this behaviour would increase the risks for all of us in school. Thank you for your support and I hope that you enjoy the time together as a family.

We are living in unprecedented times due to the uncertainties that we all face one way or another. We hear regularly in the news that people are finding the current situation difficult and this is understandable. None of us have ever lived this like this before and hopefully, will never again. As a school we are both concerned and interested in finding out about the well-being of your child.

With that in mind we would like to ask parents and carers to take the time to complete the online Well-being survey. This will help the Welfare and Safeguarding team, to give support to those children who may require it, over the next half term and the coming months. In a recent survey, some of you may have answered a question on mental health but we want the most up to date information.

Could you please submit your response by Monday 1st June

Thank you for your time and we hope you stay safe and well.

I would like to thank Bishop Walsh for the original survey.
