Year 7 Settling In Evening

Wednesday 4 October 2017 17.30-19.30

Our Year 7 ‘Settling In’ evening is an opportunity to meet your child’s form tutor and discuss how they have started their time at Marden High School, both socially and academically. Other key members of staff will also be present for you to speak to, including Miss Laing (Year Coordinator), and members of our Senior Leadership team, including Mrs Reece, our SENDCO.

You will also be able to meet members of our Parent Teacher Association who will be serving refreshments.

Appointments will run from 17.30 – 19.30, and your child will be given a slip for you to indicate your preferred time slot before receiving an appointment from their form tutor. As meetings with form tutors will be brief (five minutes) we ask that you are punctual for your allocated slot.

Year 7 reports will sent home and available on Parent Portal before this date.

If you cannot make it on the evening, you can contact Miss Laing to arrange a phone call to discuss your child’s progress at another time.

We are looking forward to seeing you there.

Work of the Week

Following on from last term’s ‘Work of the Week’, curriculum leaders have once again put forward a selection of superb submissions which continue to reflect the excellent work going on across all areas and all year groups.

Congratulations to Jacob, Poppy, Mary Jo and Elise from Year 7; Nathan and Sam from Year 8; Jasmine, Callum and Tom from Year 10; and Jude and Megan from Year 11 for their excellent work this week.

Prizes Win Points!

Calling all students! Here is a great opportunity to win some House points and prizes for your form.

Starting on Monday we will be holding a challenge in school over the next few weeks and it would be great if you would like to take part.

We would like you to bring in either some sweets or some chocolate that we can use as prizes at our fundraising events.
For each donation that you make we will award you 1 House Point, so the more you bring the more points you earn for your house.
There will be a prize for the form that brings in the most.
The winning form will be announced on Monday 9th October.
Good luck everyone!

Year 11 Information Evening

On Tuesday 19th September we will be welcoming parents and carers of Year 11 to an Information Evening in the Auditorium. There will be a brief presentation from myself and the Head of Year, Mr Scott, followed by a series of three workshops on how best students can prepare for exams in this important year and how parents can best support them. This will be an important evening as we work closely together, school and home, to get the best for our children.

I hope to see you there.

Mr. Snape.
