A message from our Librarian
Claires Court Library Service now has access to Britannica School Online.  Please see link to the letter here. This is an excellent online resource for all subjects and all ages. It is designed to be a research tool for pupils to carry out research independently at home or in school. Britannica School is an online platform provided by Encyclopaedia Britannica, a worldwide leader of fact-checked content. The platform provides safe content to support homework and research. Content types include articles, images (copyright cleared), videos, primary sources, ebooks (including 19th century GCSE texts) and journals as well as many links to free, safe and vetted educational websites. Access is available via the Library Services website. 

Open events
We’re holding virtual open events to give a taster of all our school divisions next Friday 25 September. Please book to join or share our event information with friends and family. 
Absence, sickness and medical appointments
To report any absences or sickness please telephone the School Office on 01628 327500, you can leave a voicemail outside of office hours and this will get picked up by a member of the admin team, or alternatively you can email in on girls@clairescourt.com. All medical appointments, notwithstanding emergencies, please email in prior to the appointment happening.

Lost property
Even more important than usual, please name all clothing and property, so that we can reunite any lost items with their owner ASAP. Unfortunately we have nowhere to safely store unnamed items under COVID secure rules. Thank you for your cooperation.

School uniform
Although some divisions of the School are wearing blazers from 28 September, we are requesting that the girls wear their school coats, if needed, with their summer uniform or their full winter uniform.  It is our preference that the children wear the School winter coat. The full winter uniform, excluding blazers for the time being, must be worn after the October half term.  Please see link for the list.

PE and Games lessons
Please can pupils ensure they are wearing preferably their tracksuit, but if not a pair of black or navy sports leggings to and from school when they are arriving for PE that day.  During the school day girls may wear their skort, however the skort must cover the cycle shorts to ensure that it is of an appropriate length.

Flu immunisations
This year, flu immunisations for Reception to Year 6 are taking place on Monday 7 December, more information will be sent out nearer the timer. If you would like your child to have their immunisation earlier, please contact your GP.

Bookworms rise to the challenge this summer

There may have been a lockdown, but there certainly wasn't a 'book-down' over the summer holidays for our Senior pupils in Years 7 to 9 with the summer house reading challenges won by Kelly and St Therese.
