We have a few announcements to make regarding our new rewards system!
On Friday 5th May, 200 students across all year groups were the first to receive ‘free Chicken & Chips’ for lunch as part of the new rewards system. These students have been model students since September and have received only positive SHARP points. They have been committed to their studies, focused in lessons and have displayed consistently positive behaviour which has been recognised & rewarded by their teachers. We are very proud of you all, Well done!
Also, nominated students are being invited to have ‘Hot Chocolate with the Headteacher’ every Friday as part of our rewards system. Students are nominated by staff for a variety of reasons e.g. being respectful, improving their behaviour, being role models, improvement in academic grades, and exceptional effort.
We have been looking at all the ways that school and parents are able to talk to each other. Whilst we have the website and text systems, there are still some times when an informal face to face meeting is the best way to communicate.
In order to make this happen, we have decided that each Friday, Mr Barton will be available to meet with parents who would like to have an informal chat with the Head Teacher over a cup of tea (or coffee). This could be to raise any concerns, discuss any ongoing issues or just to provide some parent feedback.
Appointments are available every Friday between 9:30am and 12:30pm.
If you would like to meet with Mr Barton please contact the school on 0121 421 7979 and ask for Mrs Price who will book an appointment for you.
Please be aware of a dangerous craze going about:
Two children needed life-saving surgery after accidentally swallowing powerful magnetic balls which are being used to mimic body piercings in a new craze.
The ball-bearing magnets are understood to have become a craze among children who use them as pretend piercings on areas such as their mouth or tongue.
However, doctors have warned if swallowed, they can cause serious damage by burrowing into the stomach and intestines.
One set of these magnets have already been voluntarily handed in by at student in school. Can you please be aware of this.
