Due to waterlogged pitches, all football fixtures after school are postponed until further notice. We apologise for any inconvenience.
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 (email@example.com) by Friday 17th March.
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.
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.
The Gardening Club is run by Student Services as one of the interventions used to support students in KS3. The allotment requires funds to cover the annual costs of materials and maintenance, to this end we try to raise as much as we can through the sale of bedding plants and hanging baskets. If you usually buy plants or hanging baskets for your garden, please click HERE and give our order form the once over, there are some great deals to be had!!
Following a very high demand for tickets to see The Tempest at the Grand Theatre in Blackpool, we have managed to secure an additional 50 places on the trip. We would like to apologise for the way in which tickets were allocated initially (whereby some classes received letters before others and therefore gained an unfair advantage under the ‘first come, first served’ system). We simply hadn’t anticipated demand being so great and have changed our systems accordingly for future trips. To avoid the same issues this time, we will use a ballot system. If we have received more than 50 reply slips by Monday 23rd January, we will draw names at random to select those students able to go. A list of names will be displayed outside the English office and an item placed on ParentPay for those who have been successful by Friday 27th January. Letters will be handed out by tutors on Thursday 19th January, a copy of which can be downloaded by clicking HERE.
Shortly before Christmas 148 parents of Year 7 students kindly completed a questionnaire giving us feedback on the transition process. You can read details, including our response to the issues raised, by clicking HERE.
Overall, the results were exceptionally positive: for example, 97% of parents say their child has settled well since September and 98% would recommend Lymm High School to other parents. We will never be complacent about identifying areas in which we can improve further, but it was very pleasing to see how happy Year 7 parents evidently are about the way the school has looked after their children during the first few months of secondary school.
