I know there have been a lot of negative comments aimed at Harris recently. Speaking as a Drama teacher in a Harris school, I can confidently say that my subject is loved and valued amongst the staff. I also know that my SLT will do whatever is right for each individual pupil.

We are very proud of how our students have risen to the challenge of home-learning. From attending live lessons, submitting excellent work on Show My Homework or returning work packs filled with brilliant ideas. Here are some examples of their excellent work https://t.co/9FrNW4UuXY

From classrooms to family courts, every part of the structure that protects children from harm has been upended. What has happened behind closed doors, asks ? https://t.co/mvKHYUUH53 https://t.co/NuV8pAa8KB

Yes. We aren’t helping them to write like Shakespeare. No-one acts like Burton. Though he was of course known primarily for his Hamlet and was successor to Olivier. Few of our kids get a leg up from Gielgud. We have to give it with English & Maths & employer engagement https://t.co/TBGyJr2I8S

One of the exhilarting things about being a small part in is watching huge success of the students we serve across all the schools not just doing the arts: but excelling. Here at 40% got a 9 in arts based subjects. https://t.co/zT0iUFkjon

The quote was an answer to a question. Context is the kind of child who wld otherwise not achieve b/c of their circs pre COVID compounded by lockdown. In that situation, it is better for the child to get fewer quals than take all subjects but in the end have little to show for it
