Secondary News

We are starting to issue Cal 1 reports from next week and there are a number of Parent Partnership and Parent Teacher meetings which are taking place (see below and the school calendar). We ask that you check your diaries and make sure you are able to attend these meetings. We will be discussing a number of issues as well as handing out reports. 

We are very concerned in school about students and their valuable items especially as more students are bringing laptops to school. We have had a laptop go missing again this week and while we are stepping up our security and vigilance we need to do all we can to ensure our students are responsible and sensible about where they put their valuable items. On many days at some point during the day a laptop is handed into the Office and then returned to the student. Please remind your son or daughter not to leave them unattended.

We completed our teambuilding activity trips last week and have been very pleased with the responses and support from parents so than you!

Next week we will be talking about tolerance and appreciating differences in school as part of our awareness of others and encouraging respect in school. Thank you to all of you who supported the Cornflour student music concert last week.
