  • Letter Regarding Monday 19th September

    13th September 2022
    Dear Parent/Carer, I am writing to inform you that following the announcement that the State Funeral for Queen Elizabeth 11 will take place on Monday 19 September, the Department for Education has stated that ‘this day will be a bank holiday and settings that are normally closed on a bank holiday should close on this day as a mark of respect. This will include schools and colleges’. Falmouth School and Sixth Form will therefore be closed on Monday 19 September. I would also like to inform you that we are increasing the ways in which we communicate with parents and carers this year. A weekly Bulletin will be published every Friday and will be available for you to read on the school website. Please click on the News heading and you will see the weekly Bulletin listed as the second item. We hope that this gives you a picture of what is happening in school and also informs you of the forthcoming events.

    Dear Parent/Carer, We have welcomed students back to school this week and I am pleased to report that they have made a positive start. Following Mr Hayward’s communication to you earlier in the week, you should also know your child’s Tutor so that you can contact them directly should you need to do so. They will also be introducing themselves to you over the coming weeks. Here is some information which we hope is useful for you to know.

    We hope this letter finds you well and you are looking forward to the half term break. We also hope the summer weather arrives and you are able to get out and about to enjoy the fresh air. Key Stage 4 and 5 parents/carers are fully aware that the exam season is upon us. The first weeks have gone smoothly and it has been great to see students turning up early for support from staff. It is important that students have a good balance over half term of down time and relaxation as well as revision. Your help in organising this is crucial. It is amazing how much time can be made available if students have an organised structure over the coming weeks. Please take some time to sit with your child/ren to help them organise their revision schedule and recreation time. If they engage well in their own revision and preparation, it will allow them to enjoy their free time more and provide them with confidence prior to their exams. We wish them all the best over the remaining few weeks of exams.

    Dear Parents, Carers and Families, I hope that this letter finds both you and your families well. The examination season has already begun for students in years 11 and 13. This is a very busy and exciting time for them. You will be aware that external examinations have not taken place over the past two years and schools have therefore not required invigilators.

    I would like to begin my latest letter by thanking you all for an absolutely fantastic response to our appeal for donations for the Ukraine. We received so many donations that the charity who have collected all of the goods, have had to return to the school four times as their vans were so packed! The generosity of the community has been truly overwhelming-thank you!

    I hope that you are all well and that the month of March, heralding the start of Spring, has started positively for you. Our first two weeks back in school have been very positive. Students returned to a new behaviour system and this has resulted in a calm and purposeful atmosphere around the school. I hope that your children have been given lots of praise points and I know, from scrutinising the data each day, that there is very healthy competition from some Tutor groups to be the first to win a prize for the whole class. My sincere thanks to Mrs Bennie, who has co-ordinated the new Praise Points system and to staff who are giving up time to offer special experiences to students who give their best every day.

    You will be aware that schools across the country are continually reviewing the Covid situation in their own setting. At the time of writing, we have been made aware of a significant increase in reported cases in school. We are therefore taking all measures possible to reduce chances of in-school transmission and disruption.
