We have had a number of parents contacting the Academy following the government announcement about school closures yesterday evening. We have already begun to identify key workers and will be in touch over the next 24 to 48 hours to confirm the plans for next week.
Can I ask that parents and carers refrain from contacting staff to ask about the summer exams (or predicted grades). We realise this is an anxious time for Year 11 students, parents and carers; as soon as we have more information we will share this with parents and carers.
We have plans in place for students who will be learning from home from next week onwards, full details of this will be sent out shortly.
Thank you for your patience and support at this difficult time.
Biddick is a popular and oversubscribed Academy, mainly serving the south of Washington, with around 1100 students on roll. We make a commitment to staffing and as a result we have one of the lowest teacher pupil ratios in the area.
Most of our students have English as a first language; the number of pupils with learning disabilities and the proportion entitled to free school meals are below average.
Please address all enquiries to:
Miss K Morris, Headteacher
Biddick Lane, Washington, NE38 8AL
