Important Notice: Home Study

Owing to the current situation, we have put in place plans for home study for our young people, to ensure that they are still able to access the full curriculum. Work will be set regularly on Class Charts by class teachers with specific instructions for individual lessons.

Pupils should aim to follow their daily timetable of five lessons per day. We would like to maintain a breadth and variety of study so there is no need to focus on any one sequence of lessons, on Showbie for example, as this may become overwhelming. Pupils should aim to complete work in line with the number of lessons per subject they have each week e.g. Spanish in Year 9 = 2 lessons per week. There should also be an additional homework task.

mw welcome

Dear Parents, Carers and Guardians,

As we enter our thirteenth week of school closure, I would just like to re-emphasise my sincere thank you to the whole of the amazing community of Ormskirk School for all the emails and telephone calls of support that school has received since we closed.

I stated at the start of this situation that we would not get everything right all of the time.  Hopefully we have got things right most of the time – but if you feel we could be doing things better, please do not hesitate to contact school.

I know that many of you have been waiting for news regarding the return to school for Year 10 and Year 12 prior to the Summer break. I am happy to now be in a position to provide you with details of this return. As I am sure you appreciate the circumstances mean it is impossible for a simple return to a full-time programme of lessons, however the decision has been taken to maximise the amount of education that can possibly be offered in the weeks remaining. This will begin on Monday 22/06/20. Please see the letter below for full details:

Letter to Y10 and Y12 Parents, 15-06-2020

Once again – thank you for all your kind words and support. It truly is a privilege to be the Headteacher of our wonderful school. Please stay safe and well in these difficult times.

M Witter
