Letter from the new Head of Year 8 – Miss Taylor

Dear Parents and Carers,

I am writing to introduce myself as the new Head of Year 8. As you may be aware, Mrs Morris will be completing her maternity cover as Head of Year at the end of this half term, and I will be taking the lead with this year group as of Monday 6th June 2022. I know that many of you will share my appreciation for the effort and hard work that Mrs Morris has dedicated to the year group, and I know she will be missed from the role.

I know that such a change can be difficult for children, especially when they have built positive relationships with key members of staff. I would like to take this opportunity to reassure you all that I have worked very closely with the pastoral team in my current role as Assistant Headteacher, and have taught many students within the year group, giving me a good knowledge of the students who are due to be within my immediate care.

I have previously worked as a Head of Year for many years, and started at Lymm High School as the Head of Year 11. I hope that this gives you reassurance that I have the necessary skillset to support your child with their needs and will make it my priority to ensure that I am up to speed with any issues or concerns that are currently ongoing. Mrs Morris and I are already in regular contact regarding the year group, and I have no doubt that she will continue to support me through the transitional period of changing roles.

I will be working alongside Miss Brown, the new Pastoral Support Manager for Year 8 as Mrs Williams leaves the pastoral team. Miss Brown is also extremely experienced in pastoral care and being based in Student Services means she is well known amongst students. We are extremely lucky to have her working with the year group, and she is always on hand to support you with any issues or problems you may be facing during the school day at times where I may be teaching and cannot respond immediately.

If you would like the chance to speak to us, please feel free to email nbrown@lymmhigh.org.uk who will be able to assist with any queries. If you require further support from myself, Miss Brown will then make the necessary arrangements to ensure that we can arrange a suitable time to speak.

It is my pleasure to be embarking on this journey with you all, and supporting your child through their next few years at Lymm High School.

Kind regards,

 

Miss T. Taylor

Head of Year 8 / Associate Assistant Headteacher

The Lymm High School PTA Committee would like to invite any parents who wish to join the PTA to attend our meeting this evening at 7pm on Zoom. The PTA welcomes any members who may have new and refreshing fundraising ideas.

If you are able to attend, please email kirstyagreen@hotmail.com so the Zoom details can be shared with you. We look forward to seeing some new faces (on screen) this evening.

Summer Bedding Plants

We’ve sourced a new plant supplier and are able to offer a selection of bedding plants once again. The prices are slightly higher than in previous years due to the cost of compost having risen significantly over the last 12 months. However, the range of plants is much greater than we’ve been able to offer before. If you’d like to order any plants, please complete the order form here, and return to school Reception by Wednesday 27th April or email to info@lymmhigh.org.uk.

Delivery will be in May before the Half Term.

Lunchtime Career Talks

Next week we are hosting a series of lunchtime career talks for students in Years 7 and 8. Students can bring sandwiches to eat during the events, which are planned to last 30 minutes (1.30-2pm) in the Leisure Centre Studio. The talks will be as follows:

  • Monday 25th April: Careers in the NHS
  • Tuesday 26th April: Careers in Finance
  • Wednesday 27th April: Careers in Engineering
  • Thursday 28th April: Careers in health and social care

We hope lots of students will join us!
