CYCLING TO SCHOOL
Over the past two weeks there have been Assemblies and Form time activities specifically relating to safe travel to and from school. This is to prevent any of our youngsters being at risk during their journey whether on foot, the school bus or by bike. Please note that as of Monday 4th June 2018 students who travel to and from school by bicycle must have a ‘Bike Pass’. The Pass is an agreement between the students, their parents and the school that students will keep themselves and their bikes safe. The letter gives advice, guidance and legal regulations regarding travel by bicycle and form a ‘Code of Conduct’.
Letters addressed to Parents / Carers have been distributed directly to students and more are available from your child’s Student Support Manager. Please return the reply slip to the Student Support Manager as soon as possible so they can be issued with a pass prior to half term.
The focus of both Year 10 and 11 students during their GCSE examinations has continued. Please remember that all pupils are expected to attend all of their examinations and any absences are to be covered by a Doctor’s Note. If a Doctor’s Note is not obtained to cover an absence then parents are at risk of being charged the Examination Entry Fee. If there is a problem on the morning of any external GCSE Examination then please inform the school immediately using extension number 4.
SATURDAY SCHOOL & HALF TERM REVISION
Saturday School will be running as normal on 9th June; there will be History and Geography Revision Sessions plus Biology for 11h/Sc1 with Mr Weekes.
