NOTICES

Damage

Please can students be aware that there has been an increase in the damage of keyboards and mice. This is unacceptable as it means that students are unable to use these computers. This is at a time when Year 11 and Post 16 need to use these machines to prepare for exams and complete coursework. We now have no spare keyboards. If the current keyboards are damaged again we will be unable to replace them. This is not fair on those that need them!! Please report any damage you see.

Venue

Please can all students make sure that they place all litter in bins provided and remember that no food must be taken out of the Venue!

Yr11 Assembly

Assembly for all yr11 on Tuesday 7th May in Learning Family Time! PLEASE NOTE PROM TICKETS NEED TO BE PURCHASED BY FIRDAY 24TH MAY!

EXAMS

Religious Studies Exam

Many students from year 10 and 11 have their Religion and Life exam on the 13th of May in the morning. Most of them are revising hard but please remind them to keep it up! REvision resources are available in HD01.


I apologise that they will be missing lesson 1, Learning Family and some of lesson 2. The exam is an hour and 45 mins! They will have a short break afterwards and be back in lessons at 11.

Peer Mentoring is now up and running!



If you feel that you would benefit from meeting with a peer mentor once a week for 10 minutes then speak to your Learning Facilitator and complete a referral form. Your Learning Facilitator will then pass this on to your Head of Village and we will then be in touch shortly.



So if you would like to talk to someone who's not an adult about home, school or homework... We can help!!



Regards
