Meeting – trip to Krakow, Poland, February 2020

A reminder that there will be a short meeting about the itinerary for the trip to Krakow, Poland, at 6.00pm on Monday 16 December, in the Library. This will include drop-off times and flight details as well as information about the activities students will be undertaking when we are there.

Please note, this is NOT about the Poland trip for skiing.


Last day of term

Please remember that school will finish for the Christmas break at 12.20pm on Friday 20 December. If students are eligible for free school meals and would like a pack up on the last day, they should speak to staff in the canteen by Thursday 19 December.


General Consent Forms for Educational Visits in the Local Area

To make it easier to arrange curriculum trips and reduce the number of permission slips parents/carers need to sign, we have set up a general consent form which allows your child to attend any trips or visits in the local area that take place during the school day. We had a reasonable response to the first mailing but there are still a number of gaps, so if you do wish to give this consent, please could you sign and return the form when it arrives and, if necessary, check bags and pockets to make sure it has come home!
