Dear parents and carers

The weather forecast for Monday seems a little unpredictable at the moment but it does seem clear that the weekend will be another hot one, which means that conditions may still be very uncomfortable in parts of the school on Monday. It also seems clear that we will back to more normal temperatures for this time of year by Tuesday, which is Founders’ Day and the sponsored walk when students are always allowed to wear PE kit anyway. Taking all this into account, we are taking the decision to return to normal school uniform on Wednesday next week.

Thank you all for your patience with PE kit. When the Met Office issued their weather warning and we first said we would allow PE kit, I don’t think anybody thought we would have such a prolonged period of exceptionally hot weather!

Kind regards

Uniform update

Dear parents and carers

 Even though temperatures might be a little lower tomorrow, the residual heat inside the school buildings means that conditions inside are likely to remain uncomfortable in some areas. It also looks as if temperatures are going to rise again over the weekend and the heatwave is set to continue well into next week. Therefore, we will continue to allow students to wear PE kit until further notice.

 Kind regards

Dear parents and carers

The very hot weather looks set to continue into next week and so we will continue to allow students to wear PE kit until at least Wednesday (which is sports day). We will make a decision on the rest of the week by Wednesday afternoon. I would like to thank you and the students for being so good at ensuring the correct school PE kit has been worn so far and ask that this continues. Have a lovely weekend.

Kind regards

Hot weather

Dear parents and carers

The weather has been very hot this afternoon – hotter than the Met Office originally forecasted – and the forecast is even hotter for tomorrow.  Therefore, we will allow students to wear PE kit for Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday this week (as you know, Friday is scheduled to be a non-uniform day).

Please note that students choosing to wear PE kit must wear the full, approved Lymm High School PE kit.  The only alternative is normal school uniform (though we will of course allow those students to remove blazers, ties and undo top buttons).  The usual sanctions will apply to any students choosing not to wear PE kit correctly.

Unless further notice is given, we will be back to normal next week.

Kind regards

Parents Forum – Tuesday 6th February

Mr Williams will be hosting the latest Parent Forum event between 6-7.30pm on Tuesday 6th February and it would be great to see as many parents and carers there as possible. These events are really important to us as a means of gaining feedback from parents and carers about things that are going well and areas in which we need to improve. Those of you who have attended in the past will know that the evenings are fairly informal and there is usually a very nice atmosphere. Tea, coffee and biscuits will be provided.

The evening will be split into three parts. Mr Williams will open with a short presentation, giving an overview of where we feel the school is now in terms of our overall development. Mrs Ryles-Dean will then say a few words about all of the work we are doing to do ensure that behaviour and ethos in the school keeps improving, including details about the rewards systems, other means of recognising students’ achievements and ways in which we encourage students to become more socially responsible citizens. Then, as always, we will be inviting parents and carers to split into small groups and provide us with feedback (positive and negative!) on any issues at all that you feel are important.

Please bear in mind that these evenings are about discussing policies, systems and practices in the school more generally, rather than a chance to talk about any specific concerns regarding your own individual son or daughter (although, of course, if you do have any such concerns, then you must not hesitate to contact us separately).

If you are likely to be attending, please let Mrs Headon know via email (hheadon@lymmhigh.org.uk) in advance so that we can ensure that there are sufficient refreshments for everybody.
