Letter to Parents 14th January



January 14th 2022


Dear Parents / Guardians

Thank you all for your support since our return.

We would like to remind students that mobile phones should be turned off and in the bottoms of bags during Tutor time and lessons. Students must not use mobile phones before break or lunch when use will be permitted. This means that mobile phones should remain in students’ bags when moving between lessons. Students must not wear or carry headphones or ear pods in school at any time. Students must only wear a black or dark blue waterproof – non leather – coat. Where students do not meet our clear expectations in respect of uniform we may confiscate the items and request parents attend school by appointment to pick them up or send a student home to change.

This term we are emphasising the importance of 98%+ attendance (COVID 19 of course permitting!) together with punctuality to school in the morning and lessons along with self-organisation: always bringing the correct equipment to school.  Please see our student Equipment List HERE. These skills are crucial to the learning of students and may become even more so in the event of further disruption to schools.

We have been asked us to provide you with information about walk in clinics for COVID and FLU vaccination.
