The changes to GCSE and A level arrangements this year mean that we need to make a couple of alterations to the school calendar.
In consultation with Faculty Leaders, we have decided to hold a parents evening for students in year 11 as soon as possible to discuss strategies to support these young people through their school assessments. As time is of the essence, we're swapping the date originally allocated for year 7 parents evening, so that:
Year 11 parents' appointments will take place on Wednesday 31st March
Year 7 parents' appointments will take place on Thursday 22nd April
Both of these events will be virtual and the window for appointments will be open from 1pm - 7.30pm, allowing everyone time to take regular breaks away from the screen between appointments. . Further details about booking appointments will be sent to parents next week.
On both days school will close for all students at 12.35pm. Lessons 4 and 5 will be set on the One Note VLE, except for the year group having parents' appointments as they are encouraged to take part in the discussions with their teachers.
Our regular bus and taxi contractors will collect students at 12.35pm
There will be no lunch service on these dates due to the early closures; snacks will be available as usual at break-time.
