Netball World Cup 2019

As you may be aware, the Netball World Cup is being hosted on British soil in 2019, with the competition taking place at the Echo Arena, Liverpool. With the recent success of the England Netball squad in winning the Gold medal at the 2018 Commonwealth Games and the domination of southern hemisphere countries, this is an incredibly rare opportunity for our netball players to watch live International netball and aspire to a world-class standard within their sport.

We are hoping to take students to watch a day’s worth of matches. Click here to read a letter from Miss Dixon, Assistant Headteacher, with further information.

Parent Forum, 16th October

We will be holding our first Parent Forum event of the year on Tuesday 16th October, starting at 6pm and finishing no later than 7.30pm. This is an ideal chance for parents to come along and provide us with your feedback on the school, as well as to meet other parents. The headteacher and members of the senior leadership team will be there, along with school governors and they are keen to hear what you have to say. These are informal events and have always proved to be very constructive in the past. Please note that the focus of the evening is on school policy and practice generally and so it is not the right place to raise specific concerns about your own children (though, of course, you must contact us separately if you have any concerns and we will do all we can to help).

If you are thinking of coming along, please let Mrs Headon know (hheadon@lymmhigh.org.uk) so that we can plan the appropriate amount of refreshments.

The PTA welcomes new members who may have new and
refreshing fundraising ideas. It can be a daunting experience for some, but rest assured, they are a very friendly bunch!!

We look forward to seeing some new faces at the next meeting.

Uniform

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

Gwyn Williams
