Torpoint Community College Summer School

We invited all students who were enrolled to join TCC as year 7 students in September 2021 and approximately 100 children attended across the five days. We offered a varied programme which included Maths and English sessions in addition to wellbeing and team building activities. The children completed many activities, including:
- Making sculptures out of clay
- Completing a circus skills day
- Launching rockets
Below is a summary of our expenditure:
|Teaching and Support Staff||£8,103.53|
|Catering Provisions (incl water)||£585.54|
|Postage and Repro||£122.94|
At TCC, we are very proud of our students and the effort they have shown and continue to show in completing their remote learning. We are equally proud of our students’ resilience in the face of the challenging circumstances lockdown presents us all with.
During this time of school closure, I wanted to ensure you are supported and signposted towards useful information regarding online safety to help protect our community from online risks and harm, as well as some useful resources you can work through with your children.
The link below is a useful guide about how to keep your child safe online while they are off school. While school is closed, here’s what you can do to help keep your child safe while they are learning, staying in touch with family and friends, and having fun online.
Also, the two links below have been created to support parents during Covid-19 and the closure of schools. The Thinkuknow website has a range of useful home activity packs with simple 15 minute activities you can do with your child to support their online safety at home. The page includes all packs for students in years 7-9 (the first link, ages 11-13) and students in years 10+ (the second link, ages 14+). The content is quite stark but is informative, reliable and from a highly credible source.
Also, below are links to the TCC website’s online safety section, which contains a range of links to help signpost you towards useful information regarding online safety; as well as a link to net-aware – an excellent guide to popular apps/games/websites and how to ensure our young people are safe.
If you do have any concerns about your child’s online safety, please do not hesitate to contact Mr Pease at firstname.lastname@example.org or Mrs Lear, our designated safeguarding lead, at email@example.com. If your call is regarding the Support School Provision then please call reception on 01752 812511. For all other general enquiries, please leave a message or alternatively e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org
We all at TCC sincerely hope you are keeping safe and well during this period and do let us know if there is anything we can do to help. Mr C Pease
