Year 7 Information 3rd September

We are looking forward to welcoming our new Year 7 students into school tomorrow, Friday 3rd of September and wanted to clarify a few details regarding the day.
Arrival is at 8.30am at the secondary entrance (where students arrived on transition day) and finishes at 1pm. (Friday 3rd September only)
Please provide your child with lunch or if they are registered with us for Free School Meals, lunch will be provided.
Please provide your child with £1 should you wish so that we can show them how to use the cash loaders and the tills to purchase food (from next week) – sQuid details will be provided over the next few days to enable you to set up a sQuid account.
No PE will take place so all students are to wear Academy uniform NOT PE kit.
We have been made aware that Brigade have not fulfilled some deliveries/orders that have been placed so please send your child into school with what uniform you have received.
Attached is a letter that was sent at the end of last term regarding the Covid testing procedure, if you have not already done so, please can you complete the Google consent form for your child to be tested tomorrow.
Also attached is a letter that was sent out when we launched SIMS Parent App, you will receive an invitation to sign up for this – please check your spam as we are aware that some invites have gone into this, it will be from a ‘no reply address at SIMS’.  This will then enable you to see your child’s timetable, behaviour etc.
