TLA Behaviour Policy


Dear Parents and Carers,

The summer holidays are drawing to a close and the nation’s thoughts are turning to going back to school. As a parent, with many of us also parents, we know how you are feeling. It’s a strange mixture of looking forward to getting the pupils back in school and getting back to the normal routine whilst also being anxious about what things may be like as we continue to deal with the virus. It’s normal to feel a bit of both.

We’ve always felt excited and nervous about school restarting in September but by the end of the first day, it’s like we’ve never been away and we’re all back in the swing of it. We are sure this year will be the same.

This year of course, we’ve had Corona to deal with. Things will look a bit different, but the current government guidelines for September will allow schools to operate in ways much closer to normal.

Home Learning Survey

Dear Parents and Carers,

Despite the crazy times we are living in we hope you managed to have a nice weekend and enjoy some of the lovely weather we’ve been having.

It’s hard to believe that schools have only been shut for 15 school days (not including Easter) and already so much has changed.

We don’t know if you know but we had two days notice to set up ‘Online Home Learning’ with staff who were also sick or isolating. It also looks like there is no clear update on when this will end so we want to ensure we are supporting you as best as we can.

Please find below links to a simple survey questionnaires for parents and pupils about home learning.  We would appreciate your thoughts which can help us make our support even better. Please click on the appropriate link below.

 Please also share with your child or help them to complete together.
