RETURN TO SCHOOL
We are delighted to begin inviting our students back to school from 15th March 2021, starting with Year 11 and 13.
Please find links below to important documents relating to our detailed plan for return prior to the Easter holidays and a letter from the Headteacher explaining the school’s strategy for agreeing Centre Determined Grades.
INSET DAY MONDAY 12TH APRIL 2021
There is an INSET day planned for Monday 12th April. All pupils return to school on Tuesday 13th April, following the Easter holidays.
day of reflection – 23RD MARCH 2021
A “national day of reflection” will be held to mark the first anniversary of Britain going into lockdown and in remembrance of the 125,000 people who have died during the coronavirus pandemic.
Charities and politicians are urging members of the public to hold a minute’s silence at noon and to contact someone they know who is grieving to offer support. Our school community will be honouring this by holding our own 2 minute silence at 12pm.
Members of the community have already made wonderful gestures of commemoration to those we have lost; a beautiful heart of stones can now be seen on the Bwlch mountain. We are planning to display as much yellow as possible around our school site on this day, and our pupils and staff are invited to wear a yellow item.
A MESSAGE FROM THE HEADTEACHER
This is a very difficult time for us all and I think for our young people in particular. I want to reassure you that, despite the students not actually being on site, we are committed to doing everything possible to support and motivate our young people. Their happiness, wellbeing and education is at the heart of everything we do. Treorchy Comprehensive School prides itself on being a ‘community school committed to excellence’.
It is a pleasure and privilege to present the school’s website to you and I hope the information presented will give you a real insight into the services that Treorchy Comprehensive School provides for our students, parents and cares and the wider community.
Our school serves the Upper Rhondda and there are currently approximately 1600 students educated at the school, over 350 of whom are in the Sixth form.
The ethos of the school is firmly embedded in our core values of RESPECT, RESPONSIBILITY and ASPIRATION. An extensive and flexible curriculum, excellent pastoral care and a rich and diverse programme of enrichment activities ensure that all our pupils thrive within a caring and supportive atmosphere.
We extend an equally warm welcome to current students and their families, potential new students and their families and anyone else interested in seeing what we do and how we do it at Treorchy Comprehensive School.
In safer times, I look forward to meeting you all and welcoming students and visitors back on site. Until then please contact the school for more information on our school.
Take care and keep safe,
INFORMATION THAT WE’D LIKE TO SHARE …
We know how difficult it is for children, young people, parents, carers and teachers at the moment. Barnardo’s Education Community provides access to FREE online trauma informed resources with a focus on loss, grief and bereavement to support the children and young people across your settings.
