  • Message from the Head - 1st April 2020

    Published 01/04/20

    Dear Parent / Carer,

    As we approach the end of the second week of this strange situation we are in, I felt that I needed to give you a little more information. I am aware that some of you have felt a bit overwhelmed by the number of communications you have received from the school so we are looking at managing this better after the Easter break. Initially we were reacting to ever-changing advice from government departments, but perhaps this has settled down for a while.

    For the time being, I have asked teachers not to chase students for work – not least because we know that many students are feeling overloaded and stressed, which has not been our intention. Again, we will try to provide clearer guidance after Easter.

    We are not expecting students to do school work over the Easter holiday fortnight. However, since some of your children might need things to occupy their time, many departments have provided ideas for project-type activities that you might wish to check out and dip into. These are entirely optional, but some might even be fun!

    We are very proud of our extended school community, past and present, and all you are doing. Many parents, carers and former students are on the front line as “key workers”, and many others – including current students - have volunteered to help in their communities.

    I also feel I should remind you, with many of your children spending more time online, of the need to be vigilant over online safety. This link to the Childline website has some very good advice: https://www.childline.org.uk/info-advice/bullying-abuse-safety/online-mobile-safety/staying-safe-online/

    Finally I would like to wish you and your families and loved ones all the best during this difficult time.

  • Change to provision for children of essential workers - 25th March 2020

    Published 25/03/20

    From tomorrow (Thursday) our provision for the children of essential workers will take place at Twydall Primary School, Twydall Ln, Gillingham ME8 6JS, and the Rainham Mark site will be closed.

    We are continuing our commitment to helping parents of essential workers in managing their childcare needs, but given the very small number of students attending we are making this change to reduce the number of staff members from both schools that need to come into work to further reduce social mixing.

    The key points are:

    - a single member of the Leadership Group from RMGS will be in charge of the RMGS students when they are at Twydall

    - the students from the two schools will be in separate rooms and will not mix

    - the room allocated to RMGS will be an ICT room, so that students can continue to access all of their ICT resources through the combined network

    - our students can be at Twydall for the same hours that we are already providing at RMGS - 08:00 until 16:30

    - the door being used at Twydall is the one opposite the main car park, under the canopy. There is a door bell if there is any issue

    All other information is unchanged. I thank you again for your understanding in this difficult situation.

    Yours sincerely

    Alan Moore

  • Remote Teaching and Learning advice for parents 20th March 2020

    Published 20/03/20

    Dear Parent/ Carer

    Please see the attached document which is a guide for students working from home. It would be so helpful if you could take a moment to read it with your child/ren so they are assured about the next few weeks and what is expected of them. We will send it to them too.

    Our school counsellor, Sue Allen, will be contacting her clients individually by email over the remainder of this term to explain how sessions will work. No new clients can be accepted at the moment.  Please do look at the resources on Schools in Mind   https://www.annafreud.org/on-my-mind/self-care/  and we are working on a section on the website.

    Thank you for your continued patience and support.

    Best regards,

    Emma Horstrup

  • Definition of key workers - 20th March 2020

    Published 20/03/20

    Dear Parent/Carer

    RE: Definition of key workers

    The government has released the list of key workers which is published below. Children with ECHPs and/or an allocated social worker are also permitted to attend. Children of key workers do not have to attend and, if easier, they can attend for periods of time across the day e.g. morning only.
