REMINDER: VKW provision and FSM sign-up
Please note that today is the deadline for informing us that your child requires one of a limited number of places in-school on Thursday 17th/Friday 18th December. If your child was eligible for the vulnerable/keyworker provision in the summer term and you require a place for your child, please click here to book.
Furthermore, if your child is eligible for free school meals, and you would like to request a 2-day food parcel for students to collect on Wednesday 16th December, please click here. Alternatively, parents can arrange collection. These must also be booked by the end of today.
Information about accessing FSM vouchers, as per the government pledge to support families during the Christmas period, has been sent directly to those parents who qualify.
REMINDER: Piercings in PE lessons
Please note that retainers for piercings are not allowed to be worn when doing core PE and must be removed. This is for health and safety reasons.
REMINDER: Star of the Week certificates
We are delighted that Mrs Seward-Adams continues to issue her Star of the Week Certificates to a student in each year group each week. Due to COVID procedures, Mrs Seward-Adams does not present the certificate to the student in class but instead emails the certificate to the parent of the student. We would encourage you to share this accomplishment with your child, should they receive one. We will also start to email the student their certificate directly.
