Measles: How to Stay Safe

Public Health England recently announced they have seen an increase in Measles outbreaks across the UK. This increase in circulation of the virus is mainly associated with travel to and from Europe where there are large ongoing Measles outbreaks.

Young people and adults aged 15 and over who missed out on MMR vaccine when they were younger and some under-vaccinated communities have been particularly affected.

We have now added a page that includes information on how to stay safe and how to identify symptoms of the virus, which you can see by clicking on the link below:

World Book Day – Costume Guidelines

As stated in a recent letter, Thursday 1st March is World Book Day.  I am writing to you to clarify the expectations for students who would like to dress up in fancy dress as a character,

As we are keen to promote reading for pleasure we are inviting students to dress as their favourite fictional character from a well-known book on Thursday 1st March.  We hope that this will help to create a buzz about books and reading around school.  Students need to bring the book which features their chosen character.  Prizes will be awarded for the best dressed.

Characters must be clearly recognisable as this is a fancy dress opportunity. Last year successful costumes included Alice in Wonderland, the Cat in the Hat, the Demon Dentist and Where’s Wally. Students may not wear skinny jeans, tracksuits or football strips. Students may not just wear jeans and a T-shirt. Make-up may not be worn unless face paint is required for the costume. Please see the images overleaf which show acceptable costumes.

I must make it clear that this is not a non-uniform day.  If students choose not to dress up in fancy dress as a character they must attend school in full uniform.  Any students who arrive in their own clothes, not in fancy dress as a character, will be asked to return home and change into full uniform.

In order to raise money for Book Aid International we will ask for a voluntary donation of 50p from the children who are dressed up.

If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to contact Miss R Roach at the school.


We will be holding our Year 9 Parents’ Evening on Thursday 1st March 2018 when subject teachers will be available for consultation between 4.30 pm and 7.30 pm.
