GCSE exams began in earnest this week. These are the first full set of external exams since the summer term of 2019! All is in place for a successful exam season and we wish all our children in Year 11 the best possible success. There is some good advice for parents on how support children during the exam season here.
We welcome two children into classrooms from Ukraine this week whose families are living in our locality. We know that all our children will give them the warmest possible welcome.

Our sustainability tip for this week is a simple one and it is all about the benefits of turning off any electrical appliances that have been left of standby.
In fact, a recent study conducted found that 9-16% of the electricity consumed in homes is used to power appliances when they are in standby mode. This electricity usage may require the use of fossil fuels which will, ultimately, contribute towards climate change. By turning appliances off at the socket, we can reduce our energy consumption and save money at the same time!
