Parents Forum

Polite Reminder: We would like to invite all parents to attend a Parents’ Forum – an opportunity to meet the Headteacher and members of the senior leadership team in a more informal setting and for you to provide the school with feedback. The focus of this particular evening will be homework but, as always, we will be seeking your views on any topics you consider important. This will take place on Tuesday 21st March at 6pm – 7.30pm; for refreshments purposes, if you are hoping to attend please could you let Mrs Headon know via email (hheadon@lymmhigh.org.uk) by Friday 17th March.

Parent View Survey

We would be very grateful if all parents could spend a couple of minutes completing the ‘Parent View’ survey, providing us with feedback on how well we are doing in different areas. As well as helping us to understand our strengths and areas for development, this particular survey is also something that Ofsted look at when they visit. Please click here to complete the survey; it only takes a minute to register and a further minute or two to complete the questions.

Safeguarding, Welfare, Support & Advice

We believe that all pupils can be successful in an environment which is caring, optimistic and encouraging and we are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of all of our students. In light of this we have recently updated the safeguarding, welfare, support and advice section of this website. It is full of useful information for parents such as how to keep your children safe online to what to do should do if you have any safeguarding concerns about a student.

Tassomai Science Revision Programme

Parents have been notified if their child has unfortunately fallen behind with their Tassomai Science revision programme (or in some cases not started).

To be successful with it and their GCSE Science exams, students need to ensure all units remain ‘On Track’ or ‘Ahead’. All targets have been reset over half-term to motivate students and get them back on track. However, students should be completing 15 mins a day, every day, and should be aiming to have completed 80-100% of the Tassomai programme by the time they sit their first exam.
