The First Week Of The 2021 Academic School Year

Mrs P Parker - Head of School for SET Ixworth School

The first week of the 2021 academic school year has seen SET Ixworth School students embark on the next phase of their learning journeys with energy and enthusiasm, all in the warmth of the late summer sunshine.

Beyond the tangible excitement of discovery and learning around the school, other highlights of the first few days have included a return to our more usual school life, such as our student and staff community coming together again on a daily basis at lunchtimes. The opportunity to welcome families on site for the first time in many months at last Thursday’s GCSE Success evening was an absolute pleasure, just as it has been to see students moving freely around the school, maximising their learning through access to subject specialist classrooms.

The school would like to thank parent/ carers for their support with both in-school and home Covid testing. Test kits continue to be available to all students throughout the school to support the twice weekly testing guidance.

To further maximise Covid-safety, we would like to remind students travelling to and/ or from school by bus of the importance of continuing to follow protocols around the wearing of face masks and where possible keeping to seating plans.

For those families dropping off and collecting students by car each day, a polite request to park with consideration for student and pedestrian safety, the larger buses accessing the school site and as always local residents. Thank you.

Mrs P Parker, Head of School
