Wednesday 4th September - Year 7 First Day of Term
We hope you found our Transition Evening informative and that your child enjoyed Induction Day. We certainly enjoyed having them and we cannot wait to see them again on Wednesday 4th September.
We will be offering a free breakfast for all of our new year 7 students from 8:00AM in The Hub, which is a great opportunity for students to meet friends and teachers before the day begins. We ask that you bring your child to school by 8.25AM on this day please.
Please note that NIBS buses are bringing older students in to school for 11:15 and will therefore not be running a morning service on this day for new students in year 7. If your child qualifies for school transport, they will be able to take it home at 3 o’clock on this day and every other day.
Year 7 students will receive a free, hot break time snack from the canteen but will require money on their Parentpay account for any food purchases at lunchtime (information on how to set this up was provided during induction.) They will be coming to the canteen throughout the morning to register for the finger recognition software required to make purchases, which will instantly connect with their account.
This is a polite reminder that all reply slips need to be returned prior to the end of term, including the biometric permissions form. Without this, students will not be able to set up their fingerprint to purchase food.
We expect all students to attend on the first day in correct uniform and with the appropriate equipment (as outlined in induction booklets). Please ensure that your child has a suitable school bag in which to store their belongings and a fully stocked pencil case. Please be aware that any electronic devices brought to school are done so at the child’s risk and should not be visible between 8:30am and 3pm.
In the meantime, if you have any questions at all throughout the summer, we will have staff available to take your emails. Contact information can be found on the school website.
Have a wonderful summer - we look forward to seeing you in September!
