Knowledge Organisers – reminder

Dear parents/carers

All students have been issued with a knowledge organiser folder, in which they keep their knowledge organisers for all subjects. It is expected that they have these with them in school at all times; they are part of expected equipment, and failure to bring their folder is likely to incur a sanction. Students should be using them in most lessons, as well as during self-quizzing time in form, so disadvantage themselves significantly if they arrive without them.

Please remind your child of the importance of having this folder with them at all times. Further information, guidance, and electronic copies of knowledge organisers can be found here.

Many thanks

Polite reminder – school start times

Polite reminder to all students that the school day starts at 8.25am.  Students should be on site and at their form room from 8.20am.

Pupils arriving late to school will be issued with a 30 mins standards detention the next day.  It is really important for students to be on time in order for them to have a productive day at school and we appreciate your support in achieving this.

Please note, if a pupil arrives late due to a bus issue, a late detention should not be issued.

Parent Governor Election Papers

Dear Parents/Carers

As you are aware, we currently have three parent governor vacancies on the governing body.  We have six candidates for these three vacancies therefore we must now hold a ballot.

Your eldest child should bring the letter, statements, ballot paper and two envelopes home with them this evening for you to complete.  Each parent or carer can vote for three of the six candidates; you have one opportunity to vote regardless of the number of children you have in the school.  The closing date for the return of ballot papers is 12 noon on Tuesday 10th December 2019.

Please click here to read the letter and statements in full.  If for any reason you do not receive a set of papers and two envelopes, please contact me via or 01925 755458.

Kind regards

Mrs Headon

Returning Officer


REMINDER – Parent Forum – 26th November 2019

Polite reminder that you are invited to attend our Parent Forum event on Tuesday 26th November, starting at 6pm and finishing no later than 7.30pm.

This is an ideal chance for you 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.  This is a parent only event and is not open to the students.

Please bear in mind that we always ask parents attending these events to be aware that they are 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): the focus is on school policy and practice generally.

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