Please join us and be part of the discussion about how to develop the home/school partnership and continue to improve the school. Tea and coffee will be provided.
Year 11 "Prepare to Pass"
Thank you to all the parents who attended the Resilient Me Workshop on 1st November. The workshop covered the memory tools that students were taught in their session and gave helpful advice on how to support our children during this important year. The presentation is available here. Please take a moment to have a look and ask your child to talk you through the session; regular short reviews of information are, as we learnt, the best way to commit things to memory!
Systems Maintenance at Half Term
Major electrical maintenance is being carried out in the school over the half term break (Mon 22nd - Fri 26th October). As a result, no remote network services will be available on Monday 22nd or Tuesday 23rd. This includes INSIGHT, Show My Homework, email and access to documents. In addition the school phone system will be unavailable from Wednesday 24th to Friday 26th. We apologise for any inconvenience caused.
Senior Citizens Tea Party
On Friday 5th October we held our annual senior citizens tea party, and we had about 60 visitors who were made up of grandparents, neighbours and residents from local residential homes. The event is hosted by Year 7 students who help with the serving of tea and cake; there is a free tombola and the visitors were each given a little posy of flowers. The visitors were also treated to a variety of performances by our very talented students. One of the comments from one of our guests - So lovely to spend an hour with the children and hear them perform. Love the way they encourage and support each other. I do hope you feel it is all worthwhile because it must take up a considerable amount of your time. We certainly think it's a most important community event which cements that special relationship between young and old which can be such a force for good in these difficult times.
