Dear parent / carer
I’d like to begin my third update of the year with my congratulations to the Year 7 students on completion of their Wild About Lawnswood project. The students have made their presentations and completed their work and all that remains is for the winners to be announced in a celebration assembly at the end of half term, after which I shall share the results with you. In the meantime, you may like to follow us on Twitter (@lawnswoodschool) for quick updates about other great activities and events.
In an attempt to improve communications with you, we are launching a new ‘app’ which will give you live information about commendations, cautions and detentions. We will send you more details and information about how to log in before the half term break.
Earlier this week, we held a maths home learning drop in session for parents and carers. The session focused on the hegartymaths platform, which is designed to independent learning at home and is used by our students to complete their home learning. The session was well attended and helped attendees become more confident in supporting their children in maths.
Please be aware of a correction and an omission:
- Year 9 Options Evening was included twice on the original version of the leaflet; the event is on Wednesday 23 January, not in
- Year 10 Health & Social Care exams will be during week beginning 5 November. The exams for Year 10 in summer will begin on 24
In the next couple of weeks, you may want to be aware of the following: Week beginning 22 October: Year 13 progress reports will be published Wednesday 24 October: Careers Fair for Years 9 to 13
Friday 26 October: school finishes at normal time for a half term break Monday 5 November: school re-opens for half term 2
My next letter will be the last of the half term but, in the meantime, thank you for your support so far this year. The beginning of every academic year can present its own special challenges for some students and your part in enabling us to settle into term effectively is appreciated.
Mrs J Bell
