Parent Bulletin No.29

Dear Parent/Carer

Welcome back to the new term and I hope you all had a pleasant Easter Break. For our Year 11 students, and some in Year 10 this term is exam season. Staff will be doing all they can to ensure your child is as well prepared for their exams as possible, both during and outside of lessons. Please encourage them to compliment this with their own independent revision and exam preparation. Remind them that a few weeks hard work now will reap rewards for many years ahead.

Year 10 Parents Evening on Tuesday the 3rd May – This is a good opportunity to raise any concerns you may have.  Please book appointments in the usual way online.

Update on COVID Restrictions

Welsh Government have yet to release an update for schools on the latest restrictions they recommend so for now we will continue with our current safety systems and routines. I hope you all agree we must do all that we can to ensure our students remain in school, especially those students who have public exams coming up. We are running very low on face coverings so please ensure your child brings one to school.

Uniform, Punctuality and Attendance

Thank you to everyone who has responded positively to our message before the break reminding you of the importance of wearing the correct uniform and being punctual to school. These are important routines and habits that will be essential to students throughout their lives. Form tutors and Head of Years will continue to monitor this and contact you where needed. Please support us by ensuring your child follows the school code of conduct.

Update from Monkhouse Forrester regarding uniform

I have been asked to share the following message from our uniform suppliers for your information:

Important Communications from our Schoolwear Supplier

As we approach the springtime, we begin to prepare for Back to School and our uniform supplier, Monkhouse is making preparations too.

As a response to your feedback, Monkhouse understand the importance of being able to communicate with you directly, so that they can keep you updated and in-the-loop as Back to School approaches.

In order to keep you informed, we ask that you sign up to their email communications via the Monkhouse homepage or create account form to allow updates from Monkhouse to reach your inbox.
