Focus of the Week                                        

Show Racism the Red Card


School Uniform

I would like to take this opportunity to say a huge thank you to parents and pupils for the tremendous support that you continue to provide in supporting our school uniform.  As you know, we invest significant efforts to promote our uniform including special assemblies, presentations and a commercially produced flyer. I am confident that our pupils will look absolutely wonderful on their return to school on Wednesday.  In promoting our school uniform we are really looking for a partnership with parents.  Our approach can only be to work with parents and pupils to encourage them to support the high standard of uniform that we aspire to. We are simply trying to encourage pupils to adopt our dress code fully. Your continued support of our school uniform policy is greatly appreciated.



Lunchtime Supervision

Many thanks to staff who have already volunteered to help with supervision at lunchtime.  If you are able to assist for a 20 minute slot one day each week can you please complete the pro-forma emailed to staff and pop it into my tray.


Lunchtime & After School Clubs

Many thanks to the huge number of staff who have organised a wide range of lunchtime and after school activities for our young people.  If you plan to continue with these activities during this session, or if you would like to organise a new club or activity, please email me the details as soon as possible for inclusion in our weekly bulletin.
