Head of Year: Mrs S Tunnicliff
I would like to take this opportunity to say how well the Year group are settling in and remind you of some important key dates for the future.
Settling into a new school environment can be quite an overwhelming experience at first. Having found their way around the school building, which in itself took about two weeks, we are now focussing on organisational skills.
The first port of call is your child’s journal and I thank you in advance for your support in signing the journal weekly. Many of you have signed up to view your child’s homework on Show My Homework, but if you have not or are experiencing any difficulties please let me know.
We also have our own Year 7 homework club in Room 13 which is open from Monday to Thursday from 3.20-4.20pm. It is manned by me and other teachers and we have access to computers, printer, paper, scissors and all the other reasons pupils find excuses not to do their homework!
As a Year group we have had an excellent start to our SAM learning hours as well with many pupils past the minimum number of four hours per module, already. I am looking forward to the Year Group maintaining this high standard over the months and years to come.
As a Year Group and school effort remains our prime focus and effort grades are due in a few weeks.
