Over the past few days I've spoken to a sizeable number of pupils across various year groups to hear their views on how they are settling in to the new session. At both Darroch and Lauderdale the pupils have responded very sensibly and maturely whilst adapting to their new environments. The main concern raised by senior pupils is the time that they are losing whilst in transit between both campuses. Staff are aware of this concern and will ensure that suitably adapted teaching programmes are implemented. During next week, a more extensive survey of pupils will take place in order to ensure that our school's leadership team knows what the concerns and issues are. We will then work with Curriculum Leaders to plan to ensure learning and teaching opportunities are maximised.
