Children In Need

Tomorrow (Wednesday 13 November), the entire ASG will be marking Children In Need.

There will be a PJ day – pupils can come to school in their PJs, onesies or dressing gowns for a £2 donation. If they don’t wish to take part, they shoulw wear their normal uniform.

There will be a bake sale at morning interval with cakes to buy for approx 50p/£1 each. If parents/families are able to donate some baking it would be much appreciated.

After lunch there will be some fun interhouse games and a Pudsey treasure hunt!

Thank you in advance for your support to make tomorrow a great day!

World Mental Health Day

This Friday the High School pupils and staff are supporting the charity Young Minds who raise vital funds to support young people with their mental health. We are taking part in Hello Yellow Day by celebrating World Mental Health Day (a day late, we are aware) and will wear yellow to school. Our Health & Wellbeing focus this year is on mental health and we will endeavour to support all our young people and our staff to have a happy, healthy year ahead.

(Please send £1 donation with your child if they are taking part. School uniform should be worn as usual if they are not participating).

World Mental Health Day – Wear Yellow

This Thursday is World Mental Health Day but the school is celebrating it on Friday instead by having a Yellow Day in the high school. Pupils and staff can come in wearing anything yellow, subtle or not so subtle if they wish and pay £1. If not wearing yellow, pupils should wear normal uniform. There will be a brief assembly on Friday morning where some/all of our Pupil Council will do a short presentation on why we are wearing yellow and why World Mental Health Day is important.
