Welcome to Moat

I hope that you and your families are safe and well. I would also like to thank you again for the support that you have given to the school during the closedown.

We recognise how difficult the last six months have been for our students and their families. We will provide all of the support and reassurance possible. During the close down a large number of our staff have had training in bereavement support and mental health issues. We will also have our usual counsellors and pastoral staff available. If any student is anxious or has any concerns, I urge them to speak to any member of staff.

Thank you for your continued support in the year to come. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the school office. We look forward to working with you to ensure a successful school year for your son/daughter.

Please check the Moat website and our social media feeds regularly for information on how the college is responding to the current health issue.

REMEMBER

COLLEGE LIFE DURING LOCKDOWN

While Moat Community College is operating under lockdown 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.
