Mrs Hodgkinson has produced the final two assemblies; one from your tutors and one about the year group pods.
These are copies of letters and your Year 6 summer challenge booklets which you should receive in the post shortly.
Mrs Hodgkinson has produced another assembly around getting lost around the school site. A lot of students may be worried about this and so this video is to make you feel a lot better and secure.
Dear Parents and Carers
Please note that the end of our school year is on Friday 17th July. This is the last day for any of the various provisions for students on the school site. From Monday 20th July there will be a reduced staffing capacity in school but staff will be available to respond to any queries or well-being and safeguarding issues.
The new school year starts on Wednesday 2nd September, and this will be an INSET day for staff. There will be no students in school this day.
On Thursday 3rd September only students in Years 7, 11, 12 and 13 will be in school for their induction into new procedures.
On Friday 4th September only students in Years 8, 9 and 10 will be in school for their induction into new procedures.
All students will be in school full time from Monday 7th September.
We will shortly be sending out more information about new procedures for September in light of the government’s guidance to schools.
This week Mrs Hodgkinson has focussed her assembly around some of our school values with a particular focus on resilience through the potato challenge.
If you are happy to share, we would love to see a photo or video of your child’s attempt/success in the potato challenge and you can send these to Mrs Hodgkinson at email@example.com
Here is the link to the assembly:

We would also like to make you aware of a small amendment we have made to our uniform guidance. We have adapted the policy to include the following in the trousers/skirt section:
Alternatively, students are permitted to wear black culottes or black school shorts. Shorts should be tailored (not P.E or cargo-style shorts) and knee-length. Formal shorts usually have two front pockets and loop holes for a belt.
We have also published images of what items are permitted for all our parents for further clarity.
Finally, thank you to those who have returned the admission and Dear Form Tutor forms that were included in your welcome pack. If you have not had chance to do so yet, we would appreciate you returning those to us at your earliest convenience.
I hope you all have a lovely weekend,
Mrs Hodgkinson has created a series of assemblies which we will be sending out over the next few weeks as we welcome your child into our school community. The theme of the first assembly is ‘crossing bridges’ and can be found at the link below.
We have put together some guidance to support you from home. We have also created a series of videos to watch together at your convenience which are designed to answer common questions parents and children often have.
I hope you find them useful.
You should have received your welcome pack which contains detailed information and guidance which can also be downloaded below.
If you have any general queries, please do not hesitate to contact us via firstname.lastname@example.org
1/3 Important message for parents – your child needs a face mask in school. From Monday 2nd November, students will be required to wear face masks in special areas. These spaces include corridors and dining hall queues.
We are looking for new candidates to join our Local Governing Body at multiple schools within the Trust. If this is of interest, please email Sam Hollingsworth on Sam.Hollingsworth@twocountiestrust.co.uk
