I am writing to inform you of the following closures for Christmas and the Spring term.
The end of this term is Wednesday 20th December 2017 and the timetables for students on this day are as follows.
Key Stage 3 students (years 7, 8, and 9) from 9.00am to 10.30am

Functional Skills English Wednesday 10th January, 9am - 11am
iGCSE Maths Tuesday 16th January, 9am - 11am
Students who will be sitting these exams will be sent confirmation in a separate letter from the Exams Officer.
Changes to Centre timetables on the above Exam days are as follows:
PLP meetings for all students will be arranged for the early part of next term and a letter will be sent out inviting parents/carers to attend.
As winter continues the situation may arise where we may have to close the centre due to adverse weather conditions. Parents/carers will need to look at the Essex County Council website for school closures. School closures are no longer listed on local radio stations. See website links below:
May I take this opportunity to remind you of our Uniform code and our No Smoking on site policies. These would have been discussed at your first meeting with staff. Can you please ensure that you remind your child of these policies in readiness for the new term.
Thank you for your support this year in ensuring that your children attend regularly and on time and that they follow school rules and learn effectively. With your support we can ensure successful learning outcomes for your child. On behalf of staff and the Governing Body, I wish you all a happy Christmas and look forward to welcoming all pupils back to the centre in the New Year.
Head of School
