First Day Back Arrangements

Pupils should arrive at school on Tuesday 5th September, 2017 and assemble in the Atrium at the following
times where staff will meet students and welcome them to their new school year.

All students need to learn how to use a scientific calculator. We recommend Casio FX-83GTPLUS or FX-85GTPLUS which are available from supermarkets and Amazon.

Please keep in mind our high expectations of school uniform and be aware that students are expected back
to school in September with the correct full school uniform (trainers, canvas shoes, leisure shoes, Vans etc.
are not permitted). May we take this opportunity to remind you that any new piercing must be done at the
very beginning of the Summer holiday, so that they may be removed if required in September.

School buses will continue using the drop-off and collection points on Birch Road (please check the school website for the school bus time-table). Please note that in order to use the Yellow School Buses, pupils need to have an IGOPass and have booked a place on the Yellow Bus directly with Transport for Greater Manchester. We strongly advise that parents continue to encourage youngsters to walk or cycle to school and use Birch Road as a drop off or collection point only when necessary. Our children?s safety is paramount and other roads around the school site are not suitable for cars to use as collection points as they may cause considerable congestion which could become a safety risk for our students.We are confident that you will support us in assuring our children?s safety by avoiding these roads whilst at the same time taking into consideration our residents.
