Year 8 Data Collection Sheets
A reminder to Year 8 parents who have not yet returned the data collection sheet to please do so as soon as possible.
Thank you for your cooperation.

Sponsored Children
For a number of years now, the MFL faculty has supported two children through Plan International. Rudi (Spanish) lives in Guatemala and Maguette (French) lives in Senegal.

Each February the Year 7 students complete a sponsored spell in their two languages to help raise money for these children and the communities in which they live. During the next few weeks your son/daughter will bring home a sponsor form and some spellings to learn. Please make this venture a success by encouraging them to get sponsors and learn their spellings.

Any amount raised, however small, will make a huge difference to Rudi and Maguette.
Thank you!
Mrs N Graves – Head of Modern Foreign Languages

News from the Child Protection Officer
The school will be launching a range of supportive projects for students around mental health this year, including an informative session for parents, led by an outside agency. Being a fully inclusive community we are launching an LGBT (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender) group for students on Friday 23rd February, at lunchtime. This is intended to promote inclusion and acceptance, to enable new friends to be made and for the young people to feel confident about who they are. Please encourage your child to attend if you feel they would benefit from this group.
