Letter to parents Dec 2018
17th December 2018 

Dear parents and carers. 

Following the publication of the recent disappointing Ofsted report it has been necessary to make some adjustments to the school term dates. This is to allow for school leaders including new staff from the Gallery Trust to establish a clear direction and plan for change. 

As a result of discussions on how best to facilitate change, I have decided to bring forward the remaining three INSET days of this academic year and to use January 7-9th 2019 as training days for all staff. 

This means that students will not return until Thursday 10th January 2019. 

I would like to point out a further change and this is that 'Breakfast Club' will no longer take place at the start of the school day. Students have identified that they do not always find this a helpful way to start their day and would find it more beneficial to take their breakfast, if required, in small groups during the first part of their morning. As a result of this change, the school day will now begin at 09:00. Students will be required to stay in taxis until 09:00 when they will be invited into their tutor room to begin their day. Taxis will be informed that they should arrive to Northfield School at approximately 08:55 and therefore some adjustments may be made to pick-up times in the morning. Students who make their own way to school should arrive in time for 08:55 each day. 

There will be a further letter at the end of this week providing you with details of your child's class group and teaching teams. 

Thank you so much for your support in this matter. 

Yours sincerely, 

Tristan Powell
