Closure of Schools

The Government are requesting that schools close to all students from Friday 20 March 2020 but remain open to those whose parents are classed as key workers and to those students who are considered ‘vulnerable’.

We currently have no definitive list from Government as to who is classed as a key worker but we will update you with this as soon as possible. 

Read the letter here: Government Closure of Schools

Work from home

Whilst the school is closed we expect pupils to be working at home. Work to do at home for various subjects can be found here or on the go4Schools homework page.

Teachers can be contacted via email should you have any queries. They can be reached by their initial and then their surname, followed by @dormston.dudley.sch.uk 

Example: Mr Joe Bloggs   jbloggs@dormston.dudley.sch.uk

Support for parents at home

We appreciate that not all parents will be able to support their child with their learning at home as much as they would like to but teachers are available on email to answer questions. For those parents that want to work with their child we will share some strategies with you in the coming weeks.

One thing all parents can do straight away, in addition to making sure that Knowledge Organisers are being looked at and work on GO4Schools is being completed, is to encourage your child to simply read for an hour a day. We have just updated our Reading Lists on our Website under Parents > Reading Lists.

Many students have been sent to the PLC today to collect books but there is an on-line reading list on the website so they can read on their phone or a PC. All studies show that reading regularly improves outcomes in subjects as wide as Science and Maths.
