We are in the process of sending allocation letters to parents/carers of students who have applied for school transport.
Following the trial timings for route 1 and route 4 in early July, and based on feedback from students, parents and the operator, we have chosen to retain the existing routes and times. All of these details will be included on the letters sent to parents/carers via schoolcomms.
Careers Information, Advice & Guidance meetings
Over the past two weeks Year 10 students have been asked to complete a questionnaire which indicates their likely post-16 intentions and destinations after students have completed their GCSEs. This questionnaire will provide important information in scheduling group and individual meetings with Mr. Hill from the start of September.
There will also be information provided in assemblies about the range of options which students need to explore, and there are a number of useful links to further education colleges, apprenticeships and the Manor School Sixth Form on the school website.
If you have any questions about this transition process, please contact Mrs Smedley on email@example.com.
Music Summer Showcase
The music department have put together a summer showcase which includes snippets of our students displaying their musical talents. We hope you enjoy watching.
As we approach the summer break, we encourage any parents/carers who are concerned around potential criminal activity they may have witnessed within the community, but are worried about repercussions, to report into the police using Crimestoppers. This is a service that guarantees your anonymity and helps everyone on the community to stay safe.
Additionally, you may continue to contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any concerns around your child or others at Manor School.
Screen time and privacy settings
With the summer holidays coming up and lockdown ending, naturally screen time among our young people will increase. Internet Matters have created a guide with tips on how to manage their screen time.
Additionally, National Online Safety have produced the following visual guides for how to set up privacy controls on both Android and Apple phones.
The Manor Exchange
The Manor Exchange is an extension of the school’s strategy for Careers, Enterprise and Work-Related Learning in enhancing our links with local labour markets, employers, training providers and former students to develop the engagement our students have with the world of work and the local economy.
We would welcome developing links with all sectors of the local economy but we are particularly interested to engage with employers who can provide information, advice & guidance about apprenticeship pathways in construction, hair & beauty, transport & logistics, and health & social care.
If you and/or your company or organisation would like to support our young people and are able to contribute to this strategy, we would be extremely grateful if you could complete the questionnaire using the following link:
The second edition of the monthly student languages newsletter is here, sharing information about the culture in French and Spanish speaking countries around the world. This edition also includes some information about traditions in Germany.
