MILLTHORPE SCHOOL WEEKLY EMAIL Friday 26 October 2018

 

Parent Governor Vacancies

There are currently two vacancies for parent governors to join the school Governing Body. Effective governance is essential for the success of a school, so please consider whether this is something that you could do at Millthorpe. If you are interested, please contact the Head’s PA on l.buckley@millthorpeschool.co.uk for more information and details of how to apply. General guidance about the role of parent governors can be found here: Being a Parent Governor

 

Building Works 

By the time we return after Half Term, the building works will be almost complete. Many thanks to everyone for bearing with us whilst the work has been taking place.

The plans for developing the all weather pitch on the school site are still underway: we are currently waiting for a decision by the Local Authority planning committee. We will also be submitting a bid for further funding from the DfE to replace the temporary classroom and Science Labs next to the main field – we will hear if this has been successful around the end of March.

 

Dining Room refurbishment celebration! Monday 5 November

To mark the completion of refurbishment works in the kitchen and the reopening of the canteen for hot food, we will be holding a celebration lunch on Monday 5 November. This will include party food, music and spot prizes. I hope that your child will be able to join us. Year 7 students will be released from lessons early on Monday so they can familiarise themselves with the hot meal service.

Just a reminder that a ‘meal deal’ (hot main course and pudding) costs £2.40; and to make sure you top up your child’s account on ParentPay if you need to.

 

GCSE Science Revision Sessions 

The Science Department will be running a weekly Science revision drop-in session in A9 after school every Thursday. This is open to all KS4 Students. This will give students the opportunity to revise in a supportive and structured environment with teachers available to help. This also gives students the opportunity to complete their weekly Science Homework with Science staff available to support them.
