We are receiving an unusually high number of items being dropped of at Reception, as well as messages left by phone or email with the expectation of delivery to students throughout the school day.
It is a standard policy that Reception is unable to accommodate these requests throughout the academic year.
Reception supports over 1500 students on school site, in addition to nearly 200 members of staff who are currently being deployed throughout school site to support the movement of all pupils in their year group bubbles. Therefore, we would like to remind parents and carers of the following procedures:
We appreciate your support in helping to ensure the safety of pupils and staff on site.
The school has now re-opened to all students in September in accordance with the latest Government Guidance (see DFE guidance) .
The school governors have approved the school’s risk assessment which has been undertaken to minimise risks to all students and staff on return to school. The school has also produced a set of frequently asked questions to help explain some of the steps in more detail.
The school’s updated risk assessment can be found here. The Trust’s overall risk assessment can be found here and an Annexe to the Behaviour Policy summarising the behaviour expectations of students during the period of recovery from the Covid-19 epidemic can be found on the last page of the Behaviour Policy here.
Links to Copia e-Learning and other online tools, which we continue to use to support the curriculum, are provided at the top of this page.
Outstanding results at Twyford were a cause for significant celebration – but also relief that the system for the award of GCSEs had indeed fairly reflected the hard work of students over the past five years.Grades at the school were increased from the levels set by teachers and 67 students, over a third of the school’s intake, gained 8 or more grades at 7 (previously an A grade) or above.
14% of students gained 5 or more passes at the exceptionally challenging Grade 9 with 14 students gaining 8 or more grades at this level and at three individuals achieving the highly unusual feat of straight 9’s across the board in all 9 or 10 subjects.
Students who are considering
resitting a GCSE exam in the Autumn series should complete the
form and make
payment by Parentpay.
Although there were many positive outcomes for Twyford students – the school has nonetheless been subject to a 37% downgrading in results – despite the centre assessed grades being in line with the previous high performance of the school. We are therefore protesting in the strongest terms to the exam boards, Ofqual and Gov’t ministers about this. An article published here summarises some of the issues. Further updates will be made as soon as we gain further information.
If following your A level results you are considering resitting an exam in the Autumn series (October) please follow the details on the form
Whilst the school raised serious concerns about the down grading of A-levels, we are keen to celebrate the success of those students who have triumphed despite the grading chaos.
14 students have already heard that their Oxbridge places are confirmed and 13 medics are in the same situation. Overall 48% of grades were awarded at A/A* and 68% of students gained at least one grade A.
