Mr Walker’s Update

18 September 2020

Please see Mr Walker’s latest update below:

Dear Parent/Carer(s) 

We have had another excellent week and students have played their part in creating a really calm and purposeful atmosphere around the school. This atmosphere has allowed our teachers to deliver great lessonsand for our Study Support programme to begin! Thank you for all of your help in preparing students. I know youas parents/carers, have worked so hard to get them ready. 

Ring Road System 

We haveof course, been helped by the wonderful sunshine and I know this will change, so please, please ensure your child has a waterproof coat. We will continue to use the Ring Road and queueing arrangements for students, whatever the weather, so please ensure they have the right equipment for this. If we experience poor weather conditions during lunchtimes, students will use the indoor spaces. 

Pick-up and drop-off  

Thank you to those parents and carers who have helped so much in not dropping off and picking up on the main Kernick Road. There are still one or two problems associated with dropping off and picking up at the main entrance; it would be great to sort these out as soon as possible. Penryn Rugby Club staff have asked us again to remind parents and carers that there is no dropoff and pickup available in their car park. 


We have received some queries about access to toilets at break and lunch. Students, of course, do have access to the toiletsbut to ensure we do not overcrowd these areaswe organise this access in a controlled manner, meaning pupils may need to wait for little longer than usual. 

Large groups and year groups 

We have been asked about what may happen if any large group of students or year group is asked to work from home. We will give details regarding this on Monday. 

Final update 

This will be my final weekly update to parents and carers. However, I will still write a message to you each week via the website and newsletter. It will be strange not writing these detailed updates to you each week, but thank you so much for taking the time to read them and subsequently prepare your child/children for the challenges we have faced. 

Take care and have a lovely weekend.
