They say that a picture paints a thousand words; though this one of Mrs Levi offering ‘Defib’ and care to Mrs Tarr at the Senior Boys reception desk indicates that all is not as it seems.

Thursday 5 March - Public Speaking Event
We are holding a Public Speaking Competition at 6pm next Thursday for selected Year 7-10 pupils. The boys have prepared their speeches and are looking to be crowned the Claires Court Public Speaking Champion so please do join us for an hour of light-hearted and informative entertainment.

Monday 9 March - Year 7 Rushall Farm
A reminder that  the Year 7 Geography Field Trip to Rushall Farm and the River Pang will be taking place a week Monday. Please find a copy of the letter here. Pupils do not need to wear uniform, but should have warm waterproof clothing and wellington boots. They should also bring a nut-free packed lunch, as well as pens/pencils and a clipboard.

Environmentally friendly water dispensers
We are committed to playing our part in reducing our carbon footprint and creating good environmentally-friendly practices in our school community. We have recently installed new fresh water dispensers across all our schools and we are stopping our use of bottled water, which will save approximately 25,000 bottles a year – this is one tonne of plastic and will save 1.5 tonnes of carbon. Please bring re-usable water bottles to school to use.

Important information about coronavirus (covid-19) 
Public Health England have released additional advice for people returning from certain areas in Italy. People who have returned from one of the ‘lock down’ areas in Northern Italy are told to self-isolate on their return to the UK, even if they have no symptoms. The two regions concerned are Lombardy (Milan) and Veneto (Venice). People returning from other areas north of, but not including Pisa, Florence and Rimini, should self-isolate if they develop symptoms. Both should contact NHS 111 or visit the Public Health England website for more information. This website is updated periodically and should any advice change that affects our school, staff or pupils, we will let you know.
If you have any questions about our response to the Public Health England’s guidance, please contact Justin Spanswick, Executive Headteacher on 01628 327717. We will continue to monitor the situation as it develops and, if appropriate, provide updates.
