Good afternoon,

I hope that you are managing to enjoy the Bank Holiday in these difficult times.  The Royal British Legion has some excellent resources for commemorating VE day - you will find them at https://www.britishlegion.org.uk/get-involved/remembrance/remembrance-events/ve-day-75.

Home study for next week:  The information has been emailed to parents & carers directly and can be found on the website.  As a dyslexia-friendly school we have used the recommended font - from next week we will provide two versions of the information in the two different fonts.

Year 10 Parents: Mr Howarth has emailed a link to all Year 10 Students this morning to click and fill in a form if they wish to apply to be a Prefect or Senior Prefect at school. Please make sure all the students are aware of this. The link will be open for a couple of weeks. 

Edukit Wellbeing Survey: Edukit has created a survey for all schools to use to check on wellbeing of students during this time at home. Mr Howarth has emailed the link to all students. It is a short series of multiple choice questions and is confidential. Only Mr Howarth will have access to the results and they are confidential unless the student wants to write a comment in the last box and add their name. This is a really valuable piece of research so please encourage all the students to complete the survey so we can see how they are doing.

Have a good weekend in these unsettling times and we will be in touch again on Monday....

Best wishes to you and all those you care for.

James Harris

Headteacher
