Arrangements for Emergency Snow Closure

In the eventuality of the school needing to close whilst in session, for example, if there is a heavy downpour of snow, the school has a very clear protocol regarding sending children home.
There may be an occasion when your child or the school staff are not able to make direct contact with you by phone when the school needs to close in such an emergency. This may mean your child is not able to be released from school when the best judgement of the school is to do so. This will be especially problematic for students using one of the school buses as these buses will need to be released promptly.
Therefore, we are asking for your written consent to be able to send your child home in such a circumstance, if we have been unable to establish contact through emergency phone call. Please note that the school does not make decisions such as this lightly. Our decision to close the school will always be taken with the safety of students as our first priority. It will be on rare occasions that we will need to take this course of action and therefore your support is valued.
Further explanation and the form we would like you to sign and return to school is available here.

Tom Mitchell Football Fundraiser

As I'm sure you are aware the school football season begins after Christmas. To help us prepare for this we would like to have an evening of intra-school football matches for each of our age groups. In addition we would like to use these evenings as fundraising events so we are asking all those taking part to donate £1 to play on this evening.
The money which we raise we be donated to Tom Mitchell who is a year 10 student at our school. Tom is not only a very talented cricketer but a student who is a great ambassador for sport at our school. Tom has the honour of being selected to attend the Cornwall u15 cricket tour to the Caribbean and needs to raise £1000 in sponsorship money to allow him to make this trip. As a PE department we are obviously keen to help Tom, hence the reason we are asking for a donation to take part in these football events. Should anyone not wish to make this donation then students will still be able to take part.
The dates and times when the football will take place are:
Tuesday 9th December (3.30 - 4.30) - Year 8 and Year 10
Tuesday 16th December (3.30 - 4.30) - Year 7 and Year 9

The football will take place on the field and students should bring boots, full football kit (own strips if they want) and shin pads. We hope that's students enjoy taking part in these football events and that we can raise lots of money for Tom.
Should you have any questions then please contact me at RLS.
Mr N. Stoddard - PE team leader
