As the Christmas holiday approaches, I wanted to take the opportunity to wish you and your family a happy Christmas and offer you my best wishes for the New Year.
Could I remind you that the Academy will reopen for all our students on Wednesday 4th of January 2017 ready for a prompt start at 8.55am. All students should attend as normal in full school uniform. During the Christmas season the children will no doubt receive presents and money, some of which they may wish to use for items of jewellery, makeup etc. In the home environment, these are perfectly acceptable but some items may not meet our uniform expectations. Please be mindful of this so that we can avoid any unnecessary difficult conversations in January.
Finally, I will be writing to you early in the New year to provide you with some feedback regarding the recent HMI monitoring visit and to give you information regarding the governance of the academy. Until then can I thank you once again for your continued support and positive feedback as we move forward towards making the Academy the successful, high achieving school that your son/daughter deserves. I hope that you and your family have a restful and peaceful Christmas break.
Mr Ian Harrison
