Weekly Bulletin (21 October)
Welcome to your latest bulletin. Remember that next week is half term!
KS4 Information & Tutor Evening and TLES Careers Fair - Tomorrow!
This mega event is on Tuesday! We encourage all parents of students in Years 9,10 and 11 to attend to gain key information about GCSEs and careers, as well as finding out how your child/ren have started the year. You can call the office to make you an appointment with your child's tutor if you haven't already made one (as the online booking system has now closed). The workshops can be booked using this link - https://forms We look forward to seeing you there.
Some exciting rewards events coming up…
Year 7 Pumpkin Carving
The top two students for positive points from each form in Year 7 will win the opportunity to do some pumpkin carving during period 5 on Friday. The winners will be announced in assembly.
Year 8 Bowling Trip
On Wednesday 27 November P4 to 3.30pm, there will be a bowling rewards trip. The criteria for students is that they must gain at least 120 positive points and 5 or less negative points. The trip will be on a first come, first served basis and is limited to 45 places. Letters will be available on Wednesday.
Year 7 and 8 Golden Time
The tutor group who collects the most positive points for being ‘Hardworking’ in the next two weeks will have 25mins off Life Skills to have a free choice of what activity they would like to do. Last time one group played a giant game of hide and seek and another group had an extra trampolining session. The competition is on!
Cinema Trips for Years 9, 10 & 11
The Heads of Year for Years 9, 10 & 11 are organising reward cinema trips for their respective year groups which will take place on either 12, 13 or 18 November depending on the year group. Students have been made of the criteria for each event. We hope to have lots of students involved to watch some great films.
16+ Taster Day- 5 November
This event is taking place for all Year 11 students on 5 November. Details of the event will be given to students this week and we hope that it proves to be an informative and useful day.
We would like to take this opportunity to remind you of the school policy regarding piercings. It states, "one pair of small ear studs (one in each ear). Any other form of body piercing is strictly forbidden.” Following October half term this policy will be strictly adhered to. Any student who does not cooperate with the rules outlined in our School Dress Code will receive appropriate sanctions. (Please see the Student Planner page 4 for further details regarding our School Dress Code).
During half term, it is Halloween. Whilst this can be a fun time for those who wish to take part in the celebrations, students are reminded that some residents prefer not to take part. The easiest way of identifying a house taking part in the festivities is to see if it is decorated. In addition, may we remind students to stay safe and sensible when taking part.
It is also worth adding that Bonfire Night is fast approaching and we would also remind students about safety when watching fireworks displays and handling sparklers.
Children in Need
We will be fund raising on Friday 15 November, by holding a non-uniform day. Students are asked to donate £1 for this worthwhile cause.
Class Charts Top Tip
You may notice that your Classcharts behaviour score has changed or does not match. This is because the ClassCharts App defaults to showing you the last 31 days only. If you wish to see a different timescale, select behaviour, select the orange box just above the 'Custom- showing 31 days' and you can select, this week, last week, this month, last month, last 30 days, last 90 days or since August'
