Letter from the Principal

8th November 2018

Dear Parents and Carers,

I am writing to update you on the two charity fund raising events taking place at CVC this term, namely:

  • Children in Need on Friday 16th November 2018
  • National Christmas Jumper Day on Friday 14th December 2018

Children in Need: Friday 16th November 2018

The school will hold a non-uniform day on Friday 16th November for pupils to donate £1 to raise funds in support of Children in Need.

To confirm that the day remains a standard school day so all other normal expectations regarding wearing of sensible shoes and not wearing make-up or jewellery apply.

Donations will be collected during registration on Friday morning.

National Christmas Jumper Day: Friday 14th December 2018

Pupils can wear a Christmas jumper or a Christmas item e.g. tinsel and pupils are to donate £1.  The money raised will be donated to the local charity Twinkle Star Children’s Trust.

Early closure on Wednesday 19th December 2018

As we progress towards the middle part of this term, I am writing to inform you that the school will close early at 12.40pm on the last day of term, Wednesday 19th December 2018.  We have contacted the bus and taxi companies ahead of this.

Pupils will have four lessons including an end of term celebration assembly.

Adverse weather conditions

As we move into winter, I would like to take this opportunity to inform you of the procedure we will follow in the event of the school having to close at short notice/adverse weather conditions.

The decision to close the school will be made before 7am in the light of all available information, including weather/travel reports, consultation with staff local to CVC, advice from the Local Authority and other relevant sources. Once the decision is made it will be communicated in the following ways:

  • Parents/Carers will be contacted via Parent Mail.
  • There will be a message posted on the front of the school website.
  • Local radio stations will be informed to broadcast this information.

We will always endeavour to keep the school open and parents/carers should assume that the school is open unless the above communication has been actioned.

Thank you very much for your continued support.

Best wishes,

Helen Cassady

Principal
