What a pleasure it has been to start to welcome MHS pupils back to school this week. A huge thank you to everyone involved in supporting such a positive transition for our learners to begin their return to face to face teaching.
Please remember that although this is a big step towards ‘normal life’, there are still some rules in place that are there to support the safety of our whole community. This includes the wearing of face coverings for everyone attending our school site, and also ensuring social distancing is followed – including when dropping off or collecting your children from school. For this transition back to face to face learning to be a success we must all play our part. Many of the rules in place are the same as last time school was open to pupils, with one or two new rules that are simple to follow. If in doubt please ask, we are here to help.
*Please remember that school starts at 8.40am and all pupils are asked to go straight to their form rooms. No pupils are to be on site prior to 8.20am, the gates will be locked till this time.
*Pupils will need to follow the one way system when moving around school, this has been in place for some time now but the arrow signs remain visible as reminders.
*It is now compulsory for face coverings to be worn by everyone in school, except for those who are exempt for genuine reasons.
*Remember to bring your own equipment/ stationery & enough water for the day.
*When topping up your meal account don’t forget it can take 24 hours for the credit to be available.
*All learners attending school site, including those attending the Hub provision, are to please wear uniform. If you are having difficulty sourcing uniform items needed please contact your child’s Heads of House so we can make sure you are signposted to all support available.
A huge shout out to Ms Sizer, who has lovingly made special heart tokens for all of the Year 7 pupils in her House (Dragon).
They were given out to pupils Monday, along with a special message to remind our youngest learners that this was a very big and exciting week and so no doubt a rollercoaster of emotions. The specially made heart stones could be discretely kept in uniform pockets, and were to serve as a reminder of how strong the pupils are- but also that if they were feeling anxious or upset staff were on hand to offer any support they can.
Thank you Ms Sizer, it really is the little things that sometimes matter the most.
