Weekly Bulletin for parents and carers, 4 March

Dear parents and carers, welcome to our latest bulletin. 

We are really proud of how well Year 11 students are doing in their mock exams. If you have a child in Year 11, please encourage them to bring a refillable water bottle and use the water fountains, or else buy water and break/lunch time for exams. Bottles taken into the exam halls must be clear and have no labels on them.

Have you completed our annual parent/carer survey yet?

We want to learn more about how we can help your school and Co-op Academies Trust to improve parental engagement, so your time and honesty are much appreciated! This survey will ask questions about the communication between carers and school, confidence in the school’s strategy and other aspects.

It should take around 15 minutes to complete, and you must do the survey in one sitting. Surveys are completely anonymous and confidential.
