Dear Parents and Carers,
I am writing to update you on the following points:
1. Friday 17th November 2017 – Children in Need
The school will support pupils who wish to hold a suitable charity event on Friday 17th November to raise money for Children in Need (i.e. cake stall, shoe shining, sponsored silence). Pupils should speak to the Assistant Principal of their Key Stage to discuss any charity events before the end of day on Thursday 16thNovember (Mrs Cooper Key Stage 3 and Mr Nash KS4). Please note this day is not a non-uniform day.
2. Last day of Term December 2017
The last day of term in December 2017 for pupils is Friday 15th December and not Tuesday 19th December which is printed in the pupil planners. Pupils return back to school on Thursday 4th January 2018.
The school will hold a Christmas Jumper Day on the last day of term (15th December) for pupils to donate £1 to raise funds in support of Save the Children. Pupils will be allowed to wear a Christmas Jumper or decorate a jumper for this day. I would like to confirm that the day remains a standard school day so all other normal expectations regarding wearing of all other school uniform items and not wearing make-up or jewellery apply.
Joy Hadley (Mrs)
