Letter to Year 7 – start of the term

1st September 2023


Dear Parents/Carers

We are very much looking forward to welcoming the new students as they start their journey with us next week. We wanted to take this opportunity to share a few helpful starting points to make the first day back as smooth as possible.

The new term starts on Wednesday 6th September 2023 and students need to be at CVC by 8:40. For their first day students should head straight to the Main Hall. We have made sure that there will be a wealth of people welcoming students to ensure all the new year 7s know where they are going! In the first assembly they will meet the Principal, and their Head of Year. They will then be taken by their form tutors their new tutor rooms where they will receive their timetables and be supported in preparing for the day.

To ensure a wonderfully positive start to the year, we ask all students to ensure that they have their correct uniform on, and that they are prepared with the right equipment. Details of these can be found in your welcome pack. If there are any concerns over uniform, please do let us know as we are aware that there have been some distribution issues for some suppliers. Please do remind your student that we are a ‘no mobile phone site’. Whilst students are allowed to have their phones in their bags, they are not to use them during the school day.

Finally, a note to ask you to check whether you can access both ParentPay or the My Child at School apps. These are used regularly to share communications from school, as well as providing a way to top up lunch money. If there are any problems using any of these, please do let us know so that we can support, and ensure you have the necessary access.

We hope you have had a lovely summer and we are very much looking forward to working closely with you in the coming months and years.

Team CVC
