On Monday 6th July we had the absolute pleasure of receiving a letter from Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for the School System, Barroness Berridge of the Vale of Catmose!
In the letter the Baroness thanked us for our response to the lockdown following the Covid-19 outbreak. Most satisfying is the specific nature of the recognition; in the letter, which can be found on the link at the bottom of the article, Baroness Berridge commends our online learning platform which has seen hundreds of thousands of student attendance in the past 3 months, you can click here to see our celebratory videos and virtual learning statistics. The Baroness also praised the support we gave to our most vulnerable students, to ensure they have the technology required to access our online platform. There is also a mention for our innovative and comprehensive solution to supporting year 6 children with transition to our schools with our virtual tour and inductions.
The reason we have worked tirelessly during this period is because as Invictus Value One states: Every day, in every way, our students come first, but we do welcome recognition, especially from such a key figure in education.
We certainly feel the praise is well deserved for everyone within the Invictus community, our teachers, support staff, parents, carers and of course students. We are all passionate to continue working collaboratively and effectively in the coming months as we hopefully return to a situation a little more familiar!
Check out our brand new newsletter, written and edited by our key worker students!

Kinver High Eco Group had its first virtual ‘meet’ yesterday, through the extra sessions platform.
It was well-attended, we even had a few new sign ups. It was really nice to hear about projects students are undertaking at home, with some students creating allotments, upcycling items, creating beeswax wraps and re-purposing plastic bottles.
Geography teacher, Miss Gilhooley has set the task for this week which is to design a logo for the group and upcycle something. The group will share any work when they meet again next week.
We look forward to seeing the logos and upcycling projects!
