Yr7 & 8 netball matches vs The Grange tonight has been cancelled due to The Grange not having transport. Huge apologies, we will rearrange.
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.
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 (firstname.lastname@example.org) so that we can plan the appropriate amount of refreshments.
We are changing the way we issue the bulletin/newsletter this year in response to feedback about how we can keep trying to improve communication.
Click here to read the new LHS Bulletin, containing the most important notices for parents from the past two weeks, as well as key upcoming dates.
Presently there are a number of students attending Ty’n-Y-Felin that have been identified as having nut allergies. Therefore, please can parents ensure their child does not bring any products that may contain nuts along to the residential.
All medication sent with children must be prescribed as we cannot give un-prescribed medication. This must be clearly labelled and handed in to a member of staff.
If your child suffers with asthma and requires an inhaler you will need to provide two inhalers, one that can be kept with the student and one that can be kept with staff.
We thank you for your co-operation.
We are using the student medical forms you submitted during the Year 7 transition events for the Ty’n-Y-Felin residential. If any information has changed, please email Head of Year 7, Mrs Worral, at email@example.com as soon as possible. Any students currently without medical forms have been issued with one, these need to be returned to Mrs Worrall via Student Services as soon as possible.
The payment for the Year 7 Ty’n-Y-Felin residential is due as soon as possible, please check Parent Pay.
Year 7 students will be bringing home an equipment list this week. This information can also be found on the Ty’n-y-Felin letter here.
