Start of New Academic Year

Following two successful staff training days, it is our pleasure to welcome back students following what we hope was a restful summer holiday.

On Friday 2nd September 2022 we welcome back to our main site Year 7 only and at HSFC Year 12 only. Both year groups will be supported by an induction programme.

Year 7 should arrive by 8.40am for an 8.45am start. Please be aware that parents/guardians will not be able to gain entry to our site with a vehicle to drop children off. Students should enter through the main entrance and colleagues and members of the leadership team will greet and direct them to where they need to go.

We advise all year 7 to bring a drink and snack for break if they wish. There will be some lunch available in Archie’s canteen but this will be limited for the first day only. You may wish to send your child with a packed lunch on their first day.

Students will have their fingerprint taken during the course of the morning on Friday, which will enable them to use our cashless catering service in Archie’s. Students will receive a letter to take home so parents/guardians can register the sQuid account online and add funds to the account.

The day will finish at 3.10pm.

All other year groups will return on Monday 5th September 2022 by 8.40am with the same support and expectations in place. 8T and 10C band have PE on Monday and so should arrive in their correct PE kit. All student timetables are already available via insight.

On returning, all students will have periods 1, 2 and tutor time as an extended tutor time to establish routines. Lessons will begin from period 3.

All students are expected to attend in the correct uniform. I would also like to draw attention to our policy on jewellery and request your support to ensure that no acrylic nails, rings or nose studs are worn as these are not permitted. Can we remind parents and guardians that hairstyles must not attract undue attention and must only be natural colours e.g. no additional colours such as blue, red and green.

Thank you for your support and we look forward to another successful year at National Church of England Academy.

Yours sincerely

Mr M Brailsford
Head Teacher
