    DUrIng the school Day

    The number of items and messages being brought in for students has increased. Whilst we are always willing to help, the interruption of lessons is causing disruption not only to the student involved but is also affecting the learning of others.

    Students need to be more responsible and organise themselves for school, making sure they bring everything required at the start of the day.

    With this in mind, we are only able to deliver items or messages to students during the course of the day if it is an emergency. If a student is aware that items will be brought in, they will then be able to collect them personally from Students Services at break or lunchtime.

    Thank you for your co-operation.


    Please remember to telephone us first thing in the morning if your child will not be in school for any reason.

    Alternatively you can e-mail [email protected]

    This e-mail address can also be used to advise of absences in advance or to clear outstanding absences.

    More than 30 people took part in our latest Family Activity Day on Saturday 5th February.

    Groups enjoyed sewing with Sue Berridge, pottery with Jenny Brogan, cooking with Chef Paul Bennett and activities linked to the Chinese New Year making Chinese Lanterns and dragons with Tessa Angell.

    Lunch was a wonderful Chinese banquet where we tried out chop sticks and opened our fortune cookies!

    These family days provide a fantastic opportunity for adults and children to try something new; have fun together and they are completely FREE!

    The next day in this series is already being planned for Saturday 2nd April. Places must be booked in advance by contacting Joanne Wade on

    Ana Weber and Nathan Quinn-Jarvis received grants of 300 each from the Go Gold Talented Athlete Awards Scheme to aid them in their continuing training and participation in Tennis and Golf respectively.

    The grant was presented to them by the Chairman of Leicestershire County Council at a awards ceremony held at County Hall, Glenfield.

    In our Citizenship lessons, we are running a campaign for a school allotment. To start off we sent out questionnaires to students and staff. The majority of people wanted an allotment because it would mean less food miles, which is better for the environment. Also a lot of people said the fruit and vegetables would taste better because they wouldnt have any of the chemicals.

    We would like to grow our own organic food so it is healthier and we know what is added to the food. The kitchen staff think it is a good idea and are willing to cook food from the allotment and cook fresh vegetables, they would like us to grow potatoes and other veg. It could be in the corner of the field.

    Thanks to Mrs Turner for her very positive response to our campaign.
