College Re-opening Update
A letter and/or email has been sent out today (2nd June) with the following information to all parents.
As I am sure you are aware, the Government have decided to push back limited reopening to the 15th June. This means the plans to partially reopen on the 8th June will have to be delayed a week.
As per our previous correspondence prior to half term from the 15th June 2020 we will be offering our students the opportunity to book-into 3-hour subject slots; these will give your child a chance for personalised subject support within small groups of learners. The support will target deeper levels of knowledge, skills and understanding from work they have covered so far – particularly work covered during lock-down. It will aim to consolidate and assure confidence in this work. It will not include new work, where remote delivery will continue to be the primary mechanism for now.
Before arriving, students should look at what targets their teachers have set and consider what areas they need to work on and improve. They should contact their teachers if they need help and advice with this. Students who do wish to book in should prioritise courses where they feel support would be of greatest benefit.
Subject slots will have a maximum of 7 students per session to ensure your child’s safety and students can only book into 1 session per day. We ask, for their safety, that they leave the college site as soon as the session ends.
Please be aware that we will not have any catering facilities on site and to ensure the safety of learners, in step with government guidelines to not use public transport where possible, there will not be any college contract buses running initially; this may change if we can ensure that students will be safe travelling.
Students can book sessions by going to; www.leggott.ac.uk/book – instructions are on the page.
In addition to this, students can access a member of the pastoral team for face to face study support. If your child would benefit from this, sessions can also be booked using the link above. We are also dedicating time during this period to support students who are early applicants for university and will be providing bookable “progression support” sessions using the above link. These sessions may also be used for any type of more urgent progression support. During college opening times, a member of the Safeguarding and Wellbeing Team will be available on site and, in addition, students will have access to our Learning Support team should they need this.
This is a very unsettling time for us all, but rest assured that we will be doing everything that we can to ensure that our building, and our ways of working are as safe as we can make them. As Principal, I will only reopen the college if, with the support of my staff and governors, I believe it is safe to do so.
We also intend to run a virtual meeting for parents via Zoom on Thursday 4th June 5pm to 6pm where we can answer any questions you have about college re-starting. To access this go to Zoom (app can be downloaded or can be accessed from their website) You click on join and enter the following:

I want to thank you for your ongoing support. If you have any questions about the preparations we are making, please contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org. We will get back to you as quickly as we can.
