Dear Parents and Carers,

I hope that you all enjoyed the winter break and had time to rest and relax with your families.

It is wonderful to be returning, in spite of Covid, to face-to-face education. Mrs Lebrett and Mrs Brice have outlined, in their email to you earlier this week, the measures we are putting in place to ensure the schools environments are as safe as possible. I am pleased to say that the vast majority of staff are in school and the student Covid absence rates are not as high as we were expecting.

On the Multi-Academy Trust’s website, you will find (at the bottom of the welcome page) the Trust Board’s statement of our ethos, vision and values, our strategic aims for 2020-2023 and our operational objectives for 2020-2023: https://hasmoneanmat.org.uk/welcome/

The Board has now reviewed how the MAT performed against the operational objectives last year. A copy of that review can be found here: https://hasmoneanmat.org.uk/wp-content/uploads/2022/01/MAT-Objectives-Review-2020-2023.pdf I hope that you find it an interesting read.

Our Chair of Trustees will be releasing a video over the next week or so which outlines some of our most significant achievements over the last 12 months and some of the plans that we have to drive forward improvements at both schools over the coming year.

With best wishes,

Mr A McClusky
CEO, Hasmonean MAT
