Year 7 Update

Good afternoon

We are nearly at the end of the week and what an amazing start the Y7 students have had.  They have managed to get through 18 lessons, 4 break times and 4 lunch times with confidence and enthusiasm.  Tomorrow I am talking the big step and letting the students make their own way to lessons.  Please reassure them that they will be looked after if they get lost, I have told staff to keep an eye out for them.

I have seen a number of students already taking part in extra-curricular activities which is superb.  I’m expecting all pupils to sign up to take part in an activity by October half term; information can be found in student services on the extra-curricular noticeboard, and I will get information out to form tutors so it can go up on their form noticeboards.  Please can you remind your child to keep looking for this information and discuss with them the activities they have chosen.

Next week I am expecting the same fantastic standards of behaviour, now I know what they are capable of I have great expectations for this year group.

I hope as parents you have got over the nerves of sending your little one off for their first week and Lymm and you have managed to find your way around the different communication channels and processes we have.  If you are still struggling or unsure about anything please do get in touch with me.

Welcome Year 7

Good morning

I am so proud of the Year 7 students yesterday.  With the horrid weather in the morning we had a change of plans so that they wouldn’t have to stand outside and they handled this last minute change brilliantly.

Their behaviour in assembly was outstanding and the feedback I got from the teachers was wonderful.  The first day in High School can be very daunting but all Year 7 students took it in their stride and showed real independence and maturity.

I understand that some parents may not yet be receiving messages via text and I apologise for this delay.  We are aware of this and are working to rectify this as soon as possible.

Some students went to get lunch from the canteen yesterday but did not have any money in their accounts.  Can you make sure that you have credited your child’s account via ParentPay if you want them to purchase food from the canteen.  If you have any problems with this please contact me.

The school photographer will be in on Wednesday to take the Year 7 photographs.  A copy of the timings for this can be found here and students will be told more about the arrangements during form time.

Our Y7 transition trip to Tynny is coming up and pupils will be going on the following dates:

  • DUNHAM – Monday 23rd September to Wednesday 25th September
  • WALTON – Monday 30th September to Wednesday 2nd October
  • ARLEY – Monday 7th October to Wednesday 9th October
  • TATTON – Monday 14th October to Wednesday 16th October
  • MORETON – Monday 21st October to the 23rd October

Payment can be made via ParentPay and letter will be sent home tomorrow.

Again a huge well done to all Year 7’s on their fantastc first day at Lymm.

Year 7 – Information for Monday 9th September

On Monday students need to be in school by 8:20am where they will meet their form teachers on the English yard to register, they will then be taken to a Year 7 assembly.  There will be staff positioned at the front of the school to show students where the English yard is when they arrive if they are unsure.  Please be aware if you are dropping your child off at school that the first buses start arriving at 8am, from this time traffic on the school site gets very busy, we do ask that you do not park in the bus bays as this can cause delays.

Students will have their fingerprint taken on Monday morning so that they can purchase food from the canteen, this can take time to process so may not be done by break time therefore you may need to send them with a snack on the first day.  You should have received a letter over the holidays giving you the log in details for ParentPay, this will mean that you can add money to your child’s account enabling them to buy food.  Students will be able to get lunch on Monday and we will be letting them go slightly earlier from lessons to give them time for lunch.

Timetables will be given out during form time after the assembly and the pupils will start their normal lessons after break time.  Students will be dropped off on the English yard by their teacher after each lesson and picked up by their teacher for their next lesson to ensure that they find their way to their room on time.

I hope that all students have had a restful holiday, I was very impressed with how well they all coped with the transition day and I am sure that once they get in and started any nerves will disappear and they will have a wonderful time.  I am looking forward to seeing all of the students again on Monday.
