I wish to remind all parents/carers of some upcoming key dates/INSET days this year and also to advise of some changes to events on our calendar that can no longer proceed in the usual way due to Covid-19 restrictions.


Key dates are on the calendar on the school’s website, but as a reminder, the INSET days for the year are as follows:

INSET 1: Friday October 2nd

INSET 2: Friday October 23rd

INSET 3: Monday February 22nd

INSET 4: Friday June 25th

INSET 5: Monday July 19th

INSET 6: Tuesday July 20th

Year 5/6 Open Evening

We normally welcome prospective parents/carers and the community at our annual Open Evening, but, as I am sure that you will appreciate, we are unable to host this event in the current circumstances. We will be distributing our Prospectus through our Cluster primary schools over the next fortnight so that prospective parents can get a flavour of the school and our ethos and values.

Parents’ Evenings

We have a number of Parents’ Evenings scheduled this term:-

  • Year 11 Parents’ Evening scheduled for October 22nd
  • Year 10 Parents’ Evening scheduled for November 19th
  • Year 11 CVC Options for December 1st
  • CVC Parents’ Evening for December 8th

We will be unable to run our Parents’ Evenings as normal this year due to the current Covid-19 situation. In lieu of the normal Parents’ Evening event, we will be issuing an interim report for pupils and would ask that parents/carers contact the school with any queries/ concerns arising from these reports. We realise that this is not ideal but it is necessary in the current circumstances.

We will update you with any further information regarding planned events as the year progresses.

As always, thank you for your continued support and for working so well with us in these challenging times.

Yours sincerely

Mrs S Evans
