First Week Back

Dear Parents,

We have now almost completed our first week and can confirm the following new staff have joined our school:

Mrs Gately – Director of Maths
Mrs Bell – Teacher of Science
Ms Taylor – Teacher of Maths
Mrs Smith – Teacher of Maths will be joining us later in the term. Mrs Anderson will be covering until Mrs Smith arrives.
Ms Donaldson – Safeguarding and Wellbeing Year 11
Ms Kinrade – Special Needs Co Ordinator. Ms Kinrade is not a new member of staff but has changed roles.

I want to thank you all for the very smooth beginning of term. Students have looked really smart in their uniforms and we have had a calm, focussed beginning to the term.

Homework
Students in Years 7,8 and 9 are set homework by teachers. Students will note down the task in their blue homework books.
Homework can be a task, or revision, or learning. The homework timetable is in the Knowledge Organisers. If by any chance homework is not set, students must spend 10 minutes revising the notes on the subject Knowledge Organiser pages. Please do not accept that there is no homework.

In Years 10 and 11, homework or revision is set by teachers. The timetable will be given to students next week, and a copy will be on our website.

Reading
Tutor time across the whole school on Fridays is now set aside for reading. Please make sure that your son or daughter has a reading book.

Whole School Photo
For the first time in a very long time we have having a whole school photo taken to celebrate our 90th birthday. This will take place next Thursday afternoon on the AstroTurf.

Year 7 Cards
All of Year 7 have cards in their bags for their parents.

Many thanks for all of your support,

Miss Kennedy
