Due to unforeseen circumstances our Autumn 1 newsletter will be delayed in going out and will be posted the first week back after half term.
We hope you have a good half term and we look forward to seeing you all back on the 29th October for our next ‘Charter Day’. Please note that there will be a slightly later start (10.15am) for students for this day only.
School Day Consultation
Consultation Regarding the Proposal to Change the Start and Finish Times of the School Day
In December 2015 the process was formally initiated to work towards changing the finish time of the school day on a Thursday, which if broadly supported would be implemented in September 2016.
The first part of the process was introducing the concept to the academy's Full Governing Body and gaining their collective support, which was minuted as 'unanimous'. The next process involves formally consulting all stakeholders, collating responses and then returning to the Chair on Friday 17th Junes with a firm recommendation.
There will be a Parents/Carers Q and A meeting on the 24th May 5.30pm-6.30pm
It would be helpful if you could contact the academy indicating if you are attending the meeting so that we can assign the most appropriate venue.
Please be advised that the final date for responses is 5pm on Thursday 9th June, responses received after this date will not be considered. Please also not that anonymous or unnamed responses will be discounted.
A copy of the letter sent out to parents and carers, with full context and information about the process can be viewed here.
