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 (firstname.lastname@example.org) 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!!
Year 8 students will be having a special day, when their normal timetable will be suspended, on either February 3rd or 13th. The students have been informed which day they are affected. On this day they should come to school as usual in full uniform and with their pencil cases. They will not need their exercise books.
The day is part of our personal, social, health and sex and relationships education offer. If you have any questions over the day please contact either Ms O’Grady or Mr Spencer.
