  • SJP Welcome Back - Update

    SJP Welcome Back - Update


    Dear Parent/Carer

    Firstly, many thanks for your support and cooperation in ensuring that the return to school has been smooth and positive for our young people. We do hope that you and all of our school community are keeping well during this time.  We are delighted with the way that our pupils have returned to school and the level of maturity with which they have dealt with the new school routines.  Our new Year 7 cohort have settled in so well considering they did not have the opportunity to visit SJP prior to joining in September.  They are a credit to the school, themselves and you for the way in which they have conducted themselves over the last week.

    Merseyrail Services - Letter to Schools on service and operational information


    We have been working with our partners at the local authorities to ensure that we are fully sighted on the return to school journey.  Whilst walking and cycling are being promoted we fully understand especially for secondary pupils that public transport may be the only feasible journey and that this might be causing anxiety. We hope that this letter helps to minimise some of those fears before next week.

  • Update on BTEC Grading

    Update on BTEC Grading


    Dear Parent/Carer/ Year 11 pupil

    At 16:45 yesterday, Pearson, the examination board responsible for BTEC qualifications, announced that BTEC grades would be reviewed in line with all GCSE and A Level examinations. Initially, they had stated that they believed that BTEC results were not affected by the wider changes to GCSE and A Level grades however we, like many other schools had disputed this assertion. While this uncertainty is totally unacceptable, we are pleased that our pupils should now get the results that reflect their ability and potential.
