A Message to Year 9 from Head of Year - Mrs Freeman
Dear Year 9!
Today is the last day of the summer holidays and so I thought I would check in with you all before Monday when after 6 months we get to welcome you back into school. We have missed you and are so excited to be together again!
I understand that some of you may be feeling really anxious about returning to school so I thought I would give you some information to help put your minds at rest.
Firstly, you will be in a year 8&9 bubble. This means that you are allocated certain classrooms and outside space that is away from the other bubbles. Your classes will take place, mainly along the A corridor along with F2 and your outside space is the front playground (where the buses come in). This will mean that you and your class have minimal movement around the class but it does not mean that your sets or bands have changed; these remain the same as last year.
On Monday you will be in your Form room for Registration and Period 1. This will give you a chance to get your timetable and planner and also give you a chance to ask any question you may have. You can also email me if you have any concerns over the weekend email@example.com
Please remember that normal Academy standards apply on your return:
- Formal footwear
- No nail varnish/false nails
- Natural coloured hair
- No jewellery
- Mobile phones off and out of sight
- Full equipment (pens, pencils, colour pencils, highlighters, rubber, ruler, calculator etc)
- Excellent punctuality and attendance
You must understand that in order to keep us all safe we must all work together and cooperate in a mature way. These are challenging times which do not need to be made more difficult by poor behaviour and a lack of organisation. I expect outstanding behaviour from you and a level of maturity that goes beyond what has ever been expected of Year 9s in previous years. In return, the year 9 team will be here to support you in any way we can to ensure a positive transition back into school life.
Please contact me should you have any questions and have a lovely weekend.
