Dear Parent/Carer,

The Summer Term so far has been another busy and successful time in school. Thank you for all your support over the last few months. I hope you also enjoy reading the Term Times, which includes some highlights from the last half term. You may also enjoy looking on our website under the What’s Happening tab to see just some of the events that have taken place this term. Please also read through the information below regarding Key Dates for the term ahead:

Year 8 Age Related Expectations Final Term Report
If your child is in Year 8, please find enclosed a copy of their final assessment report. This information will indicate your child’s strengths and areas for development across a range of subjects.

New Academic Year – from Tuesday 29th June
On Tuesday 29th June, all Secondary pupils will transition to their new year group. If your child is in the Secondary Phase, please find enclosed their new timetable.

Progress Reports
Please also find enclosed your child’s progress report for this half term if they are in our Secondary Phase. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact your child’s coach.

Year 6+
Our Year 6 children are at a distinct advantage when they move to Year 7 as part of a through school. To exploit that advantage the children have been part of a Y6+ transition programme, aimed to prepare our Year 6 for their transition to Key Stage 3 whilst remaining connected to their primary experience. Feedback from the children, parents and staff alike has been positive and the children talk confidently about the progression to Year 7 in September. Year 6+ continues to adapt that transition process, based on the children’s readiness. In the next stage of the transition there are some developments to the programme. Details of those adaptations for Y6 parents and carers can be found in an attached information sheet.

Year 9 Photographs
If your child is in Year 9 and you wish to purchase the attached photograph, please do so by ParentPay by Friday 2nd July.

Meet Your Coach Day
Thank you to our Year 6 – 10 families who attended Meet Your Coach Day. If you were unable to meet with your child’s Coach and you would like to make an appointment, please contact school on 0113 3368400 (Secondary Phase).

Summer Camp Programme
A series of summer camps and trips will be running throughout the summer break for all year groups. Further information regarding the relevant opportunity for your child will follow shortly. This itinerary of varied opportunities will offer children the chance to enjoy some of the experiences that lockdown has prevented as well as offering chances to develop skills in activities such as sports, crafts, cookery and team-building tasks.

We have a busy end to the year ahead with a range of events and activities towards the end of the school year (see key dates below). Please note, we will break up on Friday 23rd July at 12.00 / 12.15pm in the Primary Phase and 12.00pm in the Secondary Phase.

Thank you for your support.

Yours sincerely
