Welcome Back From Mr McClarey

September 2020

Dear Parent,

I hope that your child has settled back into college life. I have been very impressed with the conduct of our students and the way they have quickly adapted to the new routines and changes we have made to the college day. We are always monitoring and reviewing these routines and there are a few things I would like to ask for your support with.

Students are not permitted on the college site before 8.30a.m. Please ensure your child arrives between 8.30am-8.45a.m. We have also introduced a staggered finish to the day in order to keep year group bubbles separate.

Year 7 finish at 3.12p.m.
Year 8 finish at 3.14p.m.
Year 9 finish at 3.16p.m.
Year 10 finish at 3.18p.m.
Year 11 finish at 3.20p.m.

We are asking students to leave the college site immediately and not loiter in corridors. Similarly, we are asking students to not congregate by the gate on Timberdine Avenue. If you are picking your child up by car you may wish to consider where you park as Timberdine Avenue is a very busy thoroughfare at the end of the college day. Can I also please ask that we continue to be mindful of local residents if we are parking on TImberdine Avenue. We have a good relationship with our neighbours, but they occasionally get frustrated if people are not parking or driving responsibly.

Thank you again for your ongoing support and please do not hesitate to contact us if there is anything we can do to support you and your child.

Yours sincerely,

Greg McClarey
Headteacher
