A great start – well done!

I will start this week by saying well done to you all. I have visited several lessons this week and in every case I have you working hard, behaviour well and being respectful – thank you and keep it up! One of our key priorities for this year is independence. In order to do your very best you must make sure you look back through your books to make sure you remember everything you have been taught. Tutor time next week will focus on teaching you the skill of note taking, which I would ask you to then use in your lessons to help your learning. 

In assembly this week, I talked to you about expectations regarding manners, politeness and being respectful. As you know, this is something we expect you to do as the norm and I am pleased to say that I am seeing this everywhere I go. Again, thank you and keep it up! Your attendance at the moment is also higher than it was last year – being here as much as possible helps you to learn and a reminder that if you have any concerns about anything at all to see a member of the pastoral team. 

You will remember last year we had our first fireworks night here at MRC. Over 2000 people came and it was a great event. We are running it again this year on 8th November – please remember to get your tickets!
