While Moat Community College is closed we want all our students to continue to learn and make progress. We are supporting our students by moving our teaching on-line. Our teachers will be on-line everyday setting work. They will also be providing support and feedback. All students should log-on to Outlook and Teams every day, as both of these platforms are used to send messages and set work to do. They should also check MathsWatch and GCSEPod each day to see if any work has been set on these applications.
We would like to send all of our parents and students our best wishes in these challenging times. We hope to support you in minimising any disruption to learning.
Mr B Killeen

Schools are to remain open for children of key categories of workers
If you are a health worker, police officer, supermarket delivery driver or look after the vulnerable and elderly in a professional capacity and you would like your child to remain at school during this closure they are able to. The school can also offer provision to pupils who have an Education and Health Care Plan and any child who has a social worker assigned.
In order to ensure that we fully safeguard children we need to know in advance whether you wish your child to attend. Please can you contact the main office to confirm your child’s attendance next week, by 3.00pm on Friday 20th March 2020.
03/04/20 A MESSAGE FOR THE HOLIDAY
We would like to thank all of our parents for the support given to their children with their on-line learning, which staff have been setting during the closure period. Our students have made an excellent start with this work.
During the two weeks from Monday 6th April to Friday 17th April our staff will not be available on Outlook or TEAMs. They will again be available daily from Monday 20th April to support students and provide feedback. Our staff will be setting our students holiday homework, to do over the next two weeks. We have also put a large number of books on-line, so that students can do some reading. The details of how to access these have been sent to students in TEAMs.
We will be closing the Moat building from Friday 3rd April for the Easter holiday. We will reopen on Monday 20th April for the children of key workers only. While the Moat building is closed, we will still be monitoring these two email accounts daily; email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org. They can be used if you need to get in touch with us urgently.
All of the Moat staff and governors would like to send our best wishes to our students and their parents, in these strange and difficult times. We hope that you all remain safe and our thoughts are with you all. We look forward to a return to normal life as soon as possible.
The Moat Staff and Governors.
