Letter to Class IM - RSE

10th January 2022

Dear Parents/Carers,

Over the next few weeks class IM will be covering Relationship and Sex Education (RSE).  In the Spring Term, the class will be focusing on Body Awareness Puberty, which is as follow:

  •  To understand and respect differences and similarities between boys and girls 
  •  To consider the ways they have changed physically since they were born.
  • To recognise the proper names for the external parts of the body.
  •  To be able to describe some of the functions of some of the parts of the body.
  • To name correct terms for body parts.
  • To know that humans produce babies that grow into children and then into adults.
  • To name male and female internal and external sexual reproductive parts, using the correct terminology.
  • To explore girls' perceptions of boys and boys' perceptions of girls in a variety of situations.

It is important we get RSE right for the young people at Meadow.  In Key Stage 3, the pupils' bodies are starting to change and it can be a confusing time.   If you would like support in how best to ensure your young person understands and is aware of their bodies, changes and behaviours, please let me know.

If you are unsure about the context or would like to speak to me further please email
imerabti@meadowhighschool.org

Kind Regards,

Ioanna Merabti
Class Teacher

Letter to Sixth Form re. Trip to France

17 December 2021

Dear Parents/Carers,

Depending on Covid situation in the New Year, we are hoping to organize a trip to our partner school in France  in May 2022(6 days). 

Students and staff going on a trip will need to be fully vaccinated and in relation to Covid, there will be a thorough risk assessment carried out prior to the final decision of the trip being made.

Please note that the only time that both schools were able to agree for the trip is 8th - 13th May 2022.

This is due to all educational visits to France being cancelled until April 2022; the French/UK half term holidays and the exam dates in both countries.

This means that the planned trip is to take place just a week before exams start in the UK and therefore, students willing to participate would miss a final week of exam preparation. Although we will do our very best to support pupils going to France with their exam preparation, this is something we would like parents/carers to consider and discuss with your child before making your decision.

When in France, we will be hosted by our partner SEN School, and we will be staying in accommodation in the same town as the school for 4 nights and for 1 night in Nice.  

Please bear in mind that although it is a very exciting opportunity, the trip will include a fair amount of walking (around Niece, Draguignan - sightseeing, as well as to and from the school - which is around 1 mile away from the hotel). We will travel by plane - British Airways (your child must not have a fear of flying), minibus/taxi and possibly by train (1.5h journey) and all students will need to be able to carry their own luggage during the journey. Please be advised that during the visit students will share rooms and take part in a variety of educational and cultural experiences with a vocational / work related focus.

We are pleased to inform you that the school will be able to cover over 50% of the actual cost of the trip (which is around £900pp) and therefore the cost paid by parents/careers has been reduced to:

 £400 in total for all students (all inclusive: flights, accommodation, transfers, food, sightseeing, insurance)

OR

£100 in total for pupil premium students

If you wish for your child to be considered for the trip, please return the reply slip below to the reception staff by Friday 7th January 2022.

As we can only offer 7 places on the trip, the pupils will be entered for a draw. Should your child be selected, a deposit of £100.00 (paid by all) will be required by Friday 21st January 2022 followed by two payments (paid by parents of children who are not eligible for pupil premium):

  •  £150.00 paid by Monday 21st February 2022   and
  • a final payment of £150.00 paid by Monday 28th March 2022

Please note that all deposits are NON-REFUNDABLE should you decide to withdraw your child from participating in the visit or if the school is forced to remove your child from the trip i.e. due to unacceptable behaviour/ high risk.  All deposits will be refundable should we need to cancel due to the pandemic.        

NB You must ensure that your child is in possession of a current UK passport that indicates a minimum of 6 months validity from the intended date of departure .                                                                                                                                                   

PLEASE DO NOT SEND ANY MONEY UNTIL YOU RECEIVE A CONFIRMATION THAT YOUR CHILD HAS BEEN OFFERED A PLACE. 

Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to email afabisch@meadowhighschool.org or you can call us at the school on 01895 443310 ext’n 244.

Yours faithfully,
Mrs Fabisch
Trip organizer

Letter to whole school re Steel Bones

PDF Copy of this letter

January 2022

RE: Non-uniform

Steel Bones walking challenge

 

Dear parents/carers,

Throughout January, Meadow High School will be raising money for Steel Bones, a charity who support amputees. We would like to raise money for Steel Bones to commemorate a staff member’s amputation one year ago. On 25th January, students are asked to wear non-uniform clothes. The theme is heroes and people we look up to. We are asking for a voluntary donation of £1 which will be donated to Steel Bones.

Additionally, the whole school will be walking 365 miles across January as part of their class activities.

Students are invited to walk in their free time also. Tutors can be contacted to add any walking to our school record; let us know how many minutes of walking your child achieves and we will add it to our total.  

If you would like to donate, feel free to send donations in cash or follow the link to ParentPay –

Many thanks,
