quote_marks_blueFirstly could I thank all parents and carers for your support last week. My apologies for any inconvenience that may have been caused by the school closure on Thursday, but I had to take the decision after fully considering how many staff can actually get in. I am pleased that we managed to get back open again on Friday and have a relatively normal day. I recognise that some students would have had difficulty getting into school on Friday.
Due to the weather we had to postpone a number of events including our Year 11 Saturday School for Maths, the start of our sessions for Year 10 Gifted and Talented Mathematicians at Colfe's and our usual Saturday detention. I am pleased to report that we are now back to normal.

We have had much to celebrate in the last three weeks including:
Over 80 Year 11 students attended Saturday Maths Intervention sessions. I was very proud of staff and students. Every one of our Maths teachers came in to teach from 9.00-12.00. It was a great session and we are hoping to do more, including at Easter. If your child is in Year 11 please encourage them to attend interventions particularly in History, Geography, RE and MFL. We would also hope that students try to get all controlled assessment completed in the next three weeks in media, business, music technology and IT. Please also note the extensive intervention offer before school in Science.
Our mock exams have been taking place this week. May I remind all parents that we have our second Year 11 parents evening on Wednesday 14 March 4.30-7.00. Before the session we have a company who are going to run a one hour workshop on 'helping your child with revision'. The same company will also be delivering two workshops of two hours on revision and resilience, for all Year 11 students. These sessions will begin at 4pm.

We had our annual Year 7 parents evening the week before last and it was great to see and hear such productive conversations about learning. All our parents were asked to complete a survey and the results were very favourable. Most parents agree or strongly agree that teaching is good, that leadership and management is good and that students are well cared for. However, I have reminded all staff that there is a professional requirement to set homework, on 'show my homework' , according to the timetable. I am aware that sometimes homework is not uploaded to the homework site or not set. This has now been addressed, but please contact us if these concerns persist.
