We start this half term welcoming back our intrepid explorers – students and staff who have been to Japan and Iceland and had a fantastic time. As always, our students were commended for their exemplary behaviour and confidence in new situations, by visit organisers and the communities they visited.
Our annual careers evening is on this Thursday (6th November, 5.30pm-7.30pm in the Junior Hall), showcasing the opportunities available to students ‘After the Allitt’. There will be staff to talk to and lots of information to help with the important decisions that shape children’s futures. Letters will go home with students today, and all Year 11 students and parents are welcome to come along. We were very pleased with the response for the visit to the Skills Show at Birmingham NEC on the 15th November. There are very few places left – please contact Mrs Copley if you would like your son/daughter to go.
The first reports of the year went home with students on Friday 24th November, and we were very pleased with the progress of students across the school. Lots of support and intervention is available in school to ensure everyone has the opportunity to ‘exceed potential’. Details are published through our social media and with letters home; however, if you would like more information about what is available for your son/daughter, please contact the relevant Head of Year. Our Parents’ Day on the 10th November gives you the opportunity to discuss the report with tutors and set targets to support learning. Reports will be sent out half termly through this academic year to help you track your son/daughter’s progress.
Thank you for your continued support.
