Together Students Achieve

Year 7

Wednesday 2 September

  1. Students to enter at the green gate (Standards Gate) where their form tutor will meet them. Gates are open from 8.15am and the academy day starts at 8.30am prompt.  Students should refer to their postcard for their form e.g. 7S. This will ensure the entrance gate doesn’t get backlogged. If parents could ensure that they do not walk to the standards gate with their child to ensure we are following social distancing rules and that children are not crossing bubbles.
  2. Students will sanitise their hands before entering the building.
  3. Students will spend the morning with their form tutor getting to know them and other members of their class. They will also receive key information and their timetable.

  5. Students will need to bring a bag with all of their equipment. Please refer to the checklist on the website. Please note: children will not require their PE kit on their first day.
  6. Lunch arrangements will follow the timings stated on the following page. Please ensure you send your child with either a packed lunch or you have added money onto your ParentPay account to allow your child to buy their lunch from the dining room. If your child is eligible for Free School Meals this information will have been transferred over from their Primary School.
