RE: Work Experience

Dear Parent / Carer,

Due to the postponement of sports day there has been a change to the supported work experience timetable.

On Thursday, students will no longer be visiting Copas Farm and instead, will be taking part in Sports day. Please can you send students in house colours and a P.E kit for that day.

The Copas farm trip will be re-scheduled at another time ASAP, I will keep parents updated on this.

Yours Sincerely,

Mr Millard

Dear Parents / Carers,

Re: London Youth Games Athletics

Your child has been selected to represent the London Borough of Hillingdon at the annual London Youth Games. The event will be taking place on Wednesday 19th June and students will need to arrive at Meadow for 7.30am to leave via coach at 7.45am. We aim to return in time for transport but if there are any delays you will be notified on the number you leave below.

They will need to bring a packed lunch with them and plenty of water. If they are entitled to a free school meal then one will be provided for them. They will be outside all day so a sun hat or applying some sun cream beforehand would be advised.

They should come to school in their PE kit.

Please fill out and send back the reply slip as soon as possible.

Letter to Upper Thematic pupils

Dear Student/Parent/Carer

We would like to say welcome to the students who will be joining/returning to us in September and hope that they will all enjoy their time in the 6th form.

As some of you are aware we generally adopt a slightly different approach to the Sixth Form timetable each year. This is due to the changing abilities of the students and the ever expanding 6th Form population. Some students will be given more accreditation based subjects while other students, such as your Son/Daughter will have a timetable which will focus a lot more on life skills and preparing for greater independence. Please note however that all students will undertake courses in English, Mathematics, World of Work, Home Economics, PSHE, and ICT in addition to these Life Skills lessons. More information regarding the timetable and the 6th Form will be sent to you shortly

If you have any questions please contact me at school.

Yours sincerely

Letter to whole school

21st May 2019

Dear Parents/Carers

As a school we are continuously looking to reward students for their positive behaviour with our merits reward system. This year has been particularly rewarding with the introduction of our merits prize cabinet. Allowing students to accumulate their merit points and then choose a prize from a selection; the more points students accumulate, the greater the prize they can choose.

We have been very fortunate to have acquired the opportunity for one student to claim a prize enabling them and a family member to attend a day at HOAC – Hilllingdon Outdoor Activity Centre. This is intended to be a fun day suitable for special needs students where a participant will be given the opportunity to try Kayaking, Canoeing, Sailing, Rowing and Powerboat rides. The day these activities are available will be on Sunday 9th June 2019 from 10:30am – 4:30pm at Dews Lane, Harvil Road,Harefield, Middlesex. UB9 6JN.

As there is one voucher for a very lucky student and their family member, there have been a few stipulation attached to it:

  1. Student must have 150 merits or more.
  2. Be accompanied by a responsible adult/family member.
  3. Bring a packed lunch.
  4. Student must be confident in water – though no previous experience is necessary, buoyancy aids will be provided and must be worn; qualified instructors will lead activities. 
  5. Wear suitable clothing - Soft shoes such as plimsolls or trainers are ideal. These may get wet. A t-shirt, sweatshirt & tracksuit trousers are best for the water activities. In cold or wet weather a number of thin layers are better than one thick jumper. Waterproofs will give protection from wind and rain if you have them. Avoid wearing jeans or wellingtons. Bring at least one complete change of clothes, including footwear and a towel.

As there is one voucher, there will be high demand. As a result of this, the voucher will be available for qualifying students to pick up from the merits cabinet from the morning of Thursday 23rd May onwards. For any disappointed students, there may be the opportunity to go next year and there will be many more prizes to choose from.

Kind regards,

Dear Parent/Carer,

To support your son/daughter with their learning in RE/RS we have arranged an educational visit to St John’s Church, Hillingdon on Tuesday 4th June, which will support their studies in their lessons on Initiation Rites within Christianity. Visits to places of worship are integral to enriching and extending their learning experiences and can provide opportunities to develop knowledge and build their understanding of the diverse world we live in.

Visits to places of worship can be an excellent resource for Religious Education as they can enhance a school’s provision for spiritual, moral, social and cultural development and help prepare pupils for life in modern Britain, with its increasingly diverse communities.

Students will travel to and from school on their usual transport as we aim to leave school at 10.55am and be back before 12.40pm. We will travel to the Church by walking and some students will have access to a lift in the minibus.

If you have any queries please feel free to contact me.

Yours faithfully.

Dear Parents / Carers,

London Youth Games Football

Your child has been selected to represent the London Borough of Hillingdon at the annual London Youth Games. The event will be taking place on Thursday 6th June and students will need to arrive at Meadow for 7.30am to leave via coach at 7.45am. We aim to return in time for transport home, but if there are any delays you will be notified on the number you leave below. They will need to bring a packed lunch with them and plenty of water. If they are entitled to a free school meal then one will be provided for them. They will be outside all day, so a sun hat or applying some sun cream beforehand would be advised, as well as a coat if it is cold.

It is a football tournament, so if they have their own shin pads and football socks they can wear them, otherwise they should come to school in their PE kit.

Please complete and return the reply slip as soon as possible. If there are any problems or questions then please contact me at school.

Kind Regards,

Dear Parents / Carers,

Pupil’s Valuables

There has been several incidences where some pupils in 11BA have failed to hand in their valuables on various occasions. This obviously poses a risk of pupils misusing gadgets and valuables potentially being stolen or damaged.  The school are not responsible for items that are damaged or stolen if they have failed to be handed in.

If a pupil fails to hand their valuables in then their items will be confiscated until a parent or carer collects it.

If a pupil has an issue with handing in their valuables then, it is suggested they keep their valuables at home.

Any questions please contact me via email: banstee@meadowhighschool.org

Kind Regards,

 

Mr. B. Anstee

Dear Parents and Carers,

The Department for Education has announced changes to relationships and sex education (RSE).

These changes are likely to come into effect from September 2020 and all schools will be required to comply with the updated requirements.

This means that we’ll be reviewing our RSE curriculum and policy to ensure it is appropriate for our pupils based on their:

  • Age
  • Physical and emotional maturity
  • Religious and cultural backgrounds
  • Special educational needs and disabilities

We will be listening to your feedback to help us do this and we will be arranging to hold a focus group at a later stage to discuss the changes. Dates are to be confirmed.

Thank you for your time.

Yours sincerely,

Mrs J Evans

PSHCE Coordinator

English Trip to The Globe Theatre, London – Tuesday 14th May 2019

To support the work on Shakespeare’s Macbeth, we have arranged a trip to The Globe Theatre on Tuesday 14th May 2019.

We will travelling by school mini-bus, leaving school at 9.15am and returning in time for the school buses.  We have tried to keep costs to a minimum; however, we will need to ask for a voluntary contribution of £10.00 per student.

Your child will need to bring a healthy packed lunch; if they are entitled to a free school meal please tick the box below and we will ensure that a packed lunch is provided.  There is a shop at The Globe so you may wish to supply your child with a small amount of spending money to buy a souvenir of their visit

We will be on our feet most of the day and therefore comfortable shoes are a must.  Please bring a light water-proof jacket (or similar) as The Globe side of The Thames doesn’t get morning sunshine and therefore tends to be cooler, especially as we are by water, and The Globe has no roof. To help our investigation we will be taking a school camera. Your child is allowed to bring their own mobile phone/ camera however this will be at their own risk (see school policy).  We will be using the photographs taken on the school camera in our subsequent English lessons.

Please complete the permission slip below and return it as soon as possible. If you have any further questions about the trip please feel free to contact us.

Thank you in advance for your help and support.

Yours faithfully,
