COVID-19 self-isolation update
Government advice was updated this Monday, with the main change being that anyone asked to self-isolate now needs to do so for 10 days instead of 14. We have consequently updated our risk assessment to reflect this.
This change, along with guidance relating to exams and face coverings, can be found by clicking here.

Child Criminal Exploitation
The Violence Reduction Network in conjunction with police and partners across Leicestershire and Rutland have produced a short film to raise awareness of Child Criminal Exploitation.
Online safety: 'Self-generated' images
Recent research has shown that around 40% of all indecent images of children uploaded to the Internet have been 'self-generated' by children. This has increased recently from 30%, highlighting an increasing trend, with children often being coerced, groomed or blackmailed into generating images. Please download the following leaflet for more information on ways you can effectively help and support your children.
Northamptonshire Police has produced a flyer around the legal use of e-scooters. You can download it via the following link.
Continuing to celebrate attendance
Based on the most recent published figures, we remain proud that the Manor School attendance figure of 94.1% is above the national average of 85.5%.
Thank you for your continued support in ensuring that we stay above the national attendance figures.
Summer 2020 certificates
GCSE, A Level and BTEC certificates are now available for collection from our main reception. Students should bring identification with them when collecting their certificates. If students are unable to collect them in person then someone else can do so on their behalf, provided they have a written, signed statement from the student authorising them to do so.
- It is the student's responsibility to collect their certificates from the end of November after the summer exam period (January for November resit exams)
- All unclaimed certificates will be kept under secure conditions for a minimum of 12 months from the date of issue
- Any unclaimed certificates may be destroyed or returned to the exam boards after retaining them for a minimum of 12 months
- If unclaimed certificates are required after the 12 months, unfortunately the student will need to contact the exam boards direct for a replacement certificate
Christmas Hamper Appeal
We had a fantastic response to our Christmas Hamper Appeal following the request for donations from the Year 11 COPE group in last week's newsletter. During Work. World. Wellness. lessons on Wednesday afternoon, tutor groups collated all their items and got to work with decorating the boxes.
In the New Year we will announce the two students from each tutor group who went above and beyond for their hamper, as well as the House that received the most nominations.
The hampers were then collected on Thursday morning, with three hampers donated to Ashfield House care home in Raunds and the remainder going to Raunds Food Bank.
Thank you to everyone who donated to the appeal.
This week we have been celebrating the many achievements of our students.
On Tuesday, Mr Davenport visited classrooms to present certificates and sweets to students who have achieved their REACH School Colours (received 15 REACH points in one of our school values) or Bronze level in our Going For Gold programme (received a total of 30 REACH points).
On Wednesday we marked some of the fantastic entries we received for our Remembrance Poem Competition in November. Selected students were presented with a bag of sweets and a framed copy of their poems. The framed poems will be displayed around the school site.
We also awarded a bag of sweets to the winners of this term's House Competitions.
Congratulations to Lilia C in Year 7, whose Remembrance poem was chosen by Mr Davenport as the winner of our House competition. Written from the perspective of a soldier at war, Lilia's poem captures why it is so important that we continue to honour those who have fought for us.
A huge well done also goes to Levi K in Year 7, who performed the best Cha-Cha Slide Workout and was the winner of this term's sport competition.
