Michaelmas Term

European Day of Languages - Prayer Hail Mary, full of Grace, the Lord is with You. Je vous salue, Marie pleine de grâce(s) ; Le Seigneur est avec vous. Blessed art you among women, and blessed is the fruit of your womb, Jesus. Vous êtes bénie entre toutes les femmes et Jésus, le fruit de vos entrailles, est béni. Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death. Sainte Marie, Mère de Dieu, Priez pour nous, pauvres pécheurs, Maintenant, et à l'heure de notre mort. Amen.

Do you shop at Morrison's Supermarket? We are collecting the Let's Grow vouchers once again so we can get some more equipment for the garden. Please pass these vouchers on to your child's tutor. A collection box is also in reception. Many thanks. Mr Blades

The average for the week is 96.3% (down from 97.1% last week). Since 3rd September attendance has been 96.9%. We aim for 97%. Parents/carer are politely reminded to avoid absence unless it is absolutely necessary. Holidays will not be authorised from 1st September 2013 under new legislation on all English schools. Requests for holidays must still be made in writing to the appropriate Key Stage leader (Mrs Garvey KS5, Mr Blades KS4 and Mr Diamond KS3), but in the vast majority of cases they will be unauthorised. Medical absence will continue to require medical proof and appointments should be made, where possible, outside of the College day. Please consider if a whole day of absence is absolutely necessary for medical appointments, or whether part of the day can be missed instead The link between attendance and achievement is well researched and documented and students should be aiming for an attendance rate of no les than 97% over the year. Thank you for your continued support with this important issue.
