Dear families,

We hope you have had an enjoyable summer and that your child has settled in well at Carr Manor Community School. Please note the important information below:

Year 7 Parent/Carer Information Meeting – Wednesday 22nd September (5.45 – 6.45pm)
We would like to invite all of our Year 7 families to this event. During this information meeting you will have the opportunity to meet with some of the staff supporting your child in Year 7 and provide you with some information about key upcoming events (including the Year 7 Residential). We will also provide you with information regarding assessment, progress reports, Independent Learning/Further Learning etc. Please arrive at 5.45pm on Wednesday 22nd September and note that there will be a talk from different members of staff supporting your child at 6.00pm.

Year 7 Residential – 9th March – 11th March 2022
We have arranged to take all Year 7 pupils for a residential visit to Dearne Valley, Kingswood Activity Centre, Doncaster from 9th March – 11th March 2022. Further information will be provided at the Information Meeting.

Free School Meals
In order for our pupils to learn effectively, it is important for children to eat healthy and nutritional meals during the school day. This can help develop concentration and therefore improve performance. If you would like further information regarding whether you may be eligible to claim for free school meals, please call the Leeds City Council Benefit Services Helpline on 0113 2224404.

To help reduce the amount of cash we have in school we have introduced ParentPay. Using this system will enable you to top up your child’s lunch money online. Details of your username and password have been provided separately.

Data Collection Form
It is essential we have up-to-date information about your child. If you have not done so already, please complete the enclosed Data Collection Form and return this to the school reception as soon as you can.

If you wish to discuss anything further, please contact your child’s coach in the first instance, or alternatively contact me on 0113 3368400.

Thank you for your ongoing support.

Miss M Jones
Year 7 Manager
