ATTENDANCE WEEK 2: Monday 25 to Thursday 29 March

Following the success of Attendance Week from Monday 18 to 22 March, we will  continue to focus on improving attendance on the above dates. During Attendance Week, any student who is absent or has been absent at any other time during the term will be visited at home by our staff, supported by Nottinghamshire Police.


Easter Eggstravaganza: Attendance Competitions

In the lead up to the Easter holidays, we are running not one but two Attendance competitions aimed at improving attendance in all year groups and across the school in the final four weeks of term.

Competition One: 11 March to 5 April (last four weeks of term), one grand prize

The aim of the competition is to get in on time every day during each of the final four weeks of term. Each student that achieves 100% attendance and zero late marks in any of the four weeks will receive a Prize Draw Ticket: if they achieve 100% attendanceand zero late marks in 1 out of 4 weeks, they receive 1 ticket to the draw; for 2 out of 4 weeks, they receive 2 tickets; for 3 out of 4 weeks, they receive 3 tickets; and for 4 out of 4 weeks, they receive 4 tickets - thus, increasing their chances of winning in the Prize Draw on the last day of term for a tablet device.

Competition Two: 25 March to 5 April (last two weeks of term), multiple prizes to be won in our daily prize draws

The second competition will work the same as our Christmas Advent Competition with Daily Prize Draws and lots of prizes to win including loads of Easter eggs, queue jumps, meals for five at McDonalds and KFC and non-uniform days. To be in with a chance of winning, students must attend every day and on time in order to be entered into any of the Daily Prize Draws.

Follow us on social media to find out who are the daily winners!

Internet Safety: Warning to Parents

(Momo Challenge - viral hoax) Message updated 28 February 2019
 

You may have heard or read about the supposed Momo Challenge, an alarming set of challenges supposedly circulating on children's social media forums. The latest update in the Guardian reports that the UK Safer Internet Centre has called the claims "fake news"

We would like to remind parents that the worldwide web is not a safe playground and close monitoriing of your child's online activities is strongly advised. Please have a chat with your child about what to do if they see anything worrying on the internet and be vigilant with their IT use.

For further advice regarding online safety, please visit our Keeping Safe page where you will find lots of useful web links. Click here to be taken to the Online Safety section of the NSPCC website.
