Year 6 Transition September 2018


 As one school year comes to an end we are already making plans for the start of a new one……

 As mentioned in a previous letter, the autumn term begins for all of Year 7 on Wednesday 5th September. Students are advised to arrive as normal to school by 8:20am and 8.25am at the absolute latest as this is when the gate closes. They will finish school at the slightly earlier time for these three days only at 3:30pm (from Monday 10th September onwards they will finish school at the normal time of 4pm).

A few reminders for their first week

  • Please ensure that your child starts BFS on day one in full school uniform and with all of their required equipment as listed in the Uniform and Equipment Letter.
  • Students will be able to buy break time snacks and their lunch from the school canteen but must have money on their account in order to do so.  If they do not have money then please ensure they have a packed lunch.  Free School Meals will be available to those with entitlement
  • PE kit may be required at some point during the week, but will definitely not be necessary on day one – they will be told if they need it later on in the week
  • Please ensure that ALL uniform, including PE kit and equipment is clearly marked with the student’s name
  • As advised by Mrs Herron it is wise for you and your child to organise ahead the contingency arrangements for what happens if you ever receive a text to say your child is remaining in school until 4:45pm
  • Please remember that the school is open for support and enquiries over the summer holidays – you may email us  or call us on 01234 223399

 We hope ope that you all have a restful and enjoyable summer break and we look forward to welcoming all of our new students on Wednesday 5th September 2018
