Nut Allergy Notice, Y11 Important Information and Parent Communications Trial
Nut Allergy Notice
On Friday 18th October 2019 ground almonds will be used in Food Technology lessons.
We will be displaying warning signs to state that “Nuts are in use”, but if you have any further concerns then please do not hesitate to contact us or have your child(ren) inform Food Technology staff of their requirements.
Year 11 Important and Useful Information

A letter has been sent home, but to view the information online, please click here.
Parent Communications App
In the past parents and carers have been using the SIMS Parent App to receive communications from school. Towards the end of the previous academic year we made the decision to move to a more versatile application called Weduc, and we have been trialling it’s potential since the beginning of term.
Many parents and carers have been successfully using Weduc, however, due to several technical issues we have temporarily disabled the service until necessary maintenance and improvements take place. We hope to restore full functionality during October half term, after which we will contact all parents/carers again and formally introduce the benefits of this application.
