It is with regret that we had to take the unfortunate decision to suspend the REACH rewards day planned for Friday 9 July. We are sure you will agree with us that safety must continue to be our number one priority. We believe that it would have been unsafe to run this event and maintain an adequate level of supervision across the rest of the school with a number of colleagues following self-isolation restrictions.
We are disappointed and frustrated that another event has succumbed to COVID-19 but are committed to ensuring that we recognise the winners of the House Cup and those achieving REACH rewards.
Year 7 bug refuges
The bug refuges that Year 7 students made on Curriculum Day last week have been put together to produce this bumper bug hotel at the bird feeding area of Stanwick Lakes. If you're visiting during the summer holiday, why not stop by to see what our students had a part in creating.
A survey will be sent out to Route 1 and Route 4 users today (Friday 9) regarding the transport trials that have been taking place this week. We would appreciate as many parents providing feedback as possible. Route 1 and Route 4 will revert back to the original times for the final week of term.
Transport arrangements for the academic year 2021/2022 will be confirmed with parents next week. Please ensure that any outstanding instalments for this term are brought up to date by Monday 12 July.
