  • Last day of term is 17th December. 18th December is an additional INSET day.

    Published 11/12/20

    You may be aware that all schools in England were written to this week by the Department for Education advising them to use the last day of term (18th December) as an additional INSET day.  The reason they have suggested this is to allow school staff to be available for 6 days from the end of term to support with any track and trace requirements. Closing on the 17th would bring this 6-day window to 23rd December.  As an academy we have followed the government guidance closely since the very beginning of the pandemic and feel that this has helped us to remain fully open.  We are also permitted, as an academy, to insert additional INSET days to the calendar without reducing the already planned training days.

    Therefore, in following the government guidance, the school term will end on 17th December, with the 18th being an INSET day. 

    As the last day of term will be Thursday 17th December, we will be inviting pupils and staff to wear Christmas jumpers for the day and to make a voluntary contribution of £1 to raise money for Save the Children. 

    Pupils will be returning to school on Tuesday 5th January.

    May I take this opportunity to thank you for your continued support and wish you all the best Christmas and New Year possible under the current circumstances.  

    Best wishes
    Mr Chris Wade

  • Parent Trustee Election

    Published 01/12/20

    Vacancy of Parent Trustee.  As we have more candidates than vacancies an electronic ballot will take place. 

    Parents are asked to provide their name and a contact email address as a means of verifying their eligibility to vote.  These details will be accessible to the Returning Officer only and will be treated in absolute confidence.  As votes are returned they will be checked against the students on the school register to ensure that each parent only votes once.  In the unlikely event of there being an attempt to use a parent’s identity to cast a duplicate vote, all votes from that individual will be discounted.

    How to vote:

    • Please select the candidate of your choice and click submit.
    • Only parents/carers of registered students at the school are eligible to vote.
    • No parent/carer is entitled to complete more than one ballot paper (irrespective of the number of children at the school).
    • Please complete the ballot paper by 12 noon on Tuesday 8 December 2020. 

    Please click here for the ballot paper.  If you are unable to vote electronically please contact the returning officer, Miss Zoe Leach, to request a paper ballot form.  Each parent/carer has one vote each and must submit the ballot paper separately under their own name. 

    The election results will be published on the Academy website within three working days of the end of the election period.
