Whole School Letter – 13-05-2022

Dear Parent/Carer

Examinations

We would like to wish all our students in Key Stages 4 & 5 the very best of luck next week when the formal external examination window begins. I appreciate that this can be a stressful time for students and their families, but it is important to remember that feeling exam stress is common and a certain level of stress can be a good thing as it helps students to focus. Stress can be heightened when we feel a lack of control so it is important to try and maintain regular routines and structure during this period. Attending school every day will significantly assist students in maintaining this structure.

Parental and carer forum

The next parental drop takes place in school on Friday 27th May at 10am. If you would like to join us for this please email CRE@newporthigh.co.uk to book a place.

Thanks to all the Parents and Carers who have competed the Spring feedback questionnaire. If there are any Parents or Carers who have not been able to do this yet, please can these be completed by Monday 16th May. https://bit.ly/3L4uOKA

Break & lunch

We are hoping to revert to one break and lunchtime after half-term. This will allow us to restart some of our extra-curricular clubs again which we have not been able to do since pre-Covid. We are continuing with our ‘outside’ lunch approach which is reviewed every day depending on the weather. This is having a very positive impact on lessons after lunch and on well-being. We have invested in additional sports equipment outside which is proving very popular and we will continue to review the facilities over the next few weeks.

Community activities at the North Hub

The Hub are running weekly Wednesday walks which are free to join. Further details can be found on their website or by contacting Matt Rees on 07967692940

School uniform

Just a reminder that we have reverted to our no coats in lessons rule so students will be expected to remove their coats in lessons.

Covid-19

It is still important that any student who is unwell with Covid-19 symptoms does not attend school.

With many thanks for your continued support.

Kind regards

Mrs Lee
