Year 7 Homework - Castle Challenge

12/01/17

Our year 7 students  undertook their history homework challenge with enthusiasm this term. The challenge required students to design and create their own medieval castle. The standard of the castles we received was exceptional and most students went above and beyond the requirements of the task. We had a range of styles, layouts and materials and our department is now beautifully decorated with their hard work.  Well done year 7.

Adverse Weather Conditions

Dear Parents/Carers


The winter season is upon us and so we would like to remind you of the procedures that will be followed in the event of adverse weather conditions.  It is highly unlikely that we would close the school but as always, our top priority is the safety of our students.  Below I have outlined the processes that are followed in the event of severe weather conditions.

 

HOW WE MAKE OUR DECISION

Please understand that we make the decision to close the school in bad weather based on a careful consideration of a number of factors, some of which include the local road conditions and public transport; how long the period of bad weather is likely to continue and the condition of the school grounds and buildings etc. 


HOW WILL YOU BE NOTIFIED 

Parents/Carers will be notified of a school closure through various channels, these include:

 


WILL WE CLOSE THE SCHOOL IF CONDITIONS WORSEN

It is highly unlikely that we will close the school after the start of the school day.  However, if conditions get worse during the day, we may need to have an early dismissal.  If this is the case we will attempt to contact and give adequate notice to all parents/carers first.  It is important during any period of adverse weather that parents/carers monitor the school website and schoolcomms for notifications and updates.

 

Although the staff and I do our absolute best in this process, we know that often no perfect decision exists.

 

We hope that this explanation helps everyone understand the process that we use during periods of severe weather to make the best possible decision for all the students in our care.

 

Yours faithfully
