Parents' Evening Invite

May 2018


Dear Parents / Carers

I would like to invite you to an Open Parents’ Evening on Thursday 24 May at 6.30pm to update you with our progress towards academisation. This will provide me with the opportunity to explain how the process will take place, which is still currently on schedule for 1 October 2018. As part of this preparation we have received over 100 entries for our competition to design the new school logo. We will now have a panel of staff, governors and students who will choose the winning design which will then be produced by a local graphic design company.

The new Academy logo and name change will not be launched until the official change over. Therefore all of our Year 7 students in September will be able to purchase a plain black blazer. We will then provide the school badge cost free to all students. Future blazers from this point will then have the logo sewn into the blazer pocket, and available for purchase from our uniform supplier Price and Buckland.

I would like to thank you for your support of our Parents’ Evenings this year, which have averaged an attendance of over 70% for all year groups. As key stakeholders in your child’s education, we would value your attendance at this meeting in order that we can address any questions or concerns moving forward. For those who are not able to attend, I will continue to update you via ‘Schoolcomms’ letters which will be uploaded onto the website.

I look forward to meeting those of you who can attend this meeting as we prepare to move forward into academisation.

Yours sincerely


Mrs E Croft
