Hello parents and friends of City of Leeds School
Many of you will have had letters telling you that your child needs some extra tuition. Sometimes this is to help them learn English, sometimes it is to help them with their reading or writing.
Please make sure your child comes to the class !
They need the extra help!
Help for Pupils who are new to English
We have now employed new staff who speak Czech, Roumanian, Russian and German to help the children settle into the school and learn English. These staff will also be able to speak to you in these languages and will also translate our letters.
Do any of you want to come into school to volunteer ? You could help children to improve their reading, help with practical classes ( like cookery or art) or help translate- especially if you are a Czech or Roma speaker. Please e-mail me if you are interested. firstname.lastname@example.org
THANK YOU to all the mums and dads that have contacted me to tell me that their child is saying they get ‘no homework’.
Please KEEP LETTING ME KNOW if this is what the children are saying.
It’s not true of course !
Please use my e-mail address above
The main school number is : 0113 2844260
All the public meetings have now been held. The meetings have been with the general public, the governors and staff of the school, the previous governing body, and the main primary schools. All the meetings were noted and the final report is now out. This will be sent to the education minister to inform his final decision about whether this should go ahead or not.
The proposed opening date is April 1st 2014, so we should be hearing soon.
Getting the pupils involved
As part of the proposed academy we have been getting the pupils involved in suggesting:-
• A name for the proposed new academy
• A motto
• A badge
Every form group can put forward up to five designs or ideas. Then we are going to have a school wide vote !!
I’ll put the winner up on the site.
