1st September 2015
Letter from Jo Hall, Options Co-Ordinator
I do hope that you have had a lovely summer with your families, and that preparations are going well for the start of term.
I wanted to take this opportunity to introduce myself, as I have recently taken over the co-ordination of the Options programme from Mr Bartley. We are currently in the process of finalising arrangements for the Michaelmas Term and we will make those details available to you as soon as possible. You will be able to view the range of weekly Options on the Portal, if you would like to discuss choices with your children. Boarding Houseparents and Form Tutors will also speak to pupils individually over the coming days, and they will be responsible for adding children onto the system on this occasion. You will, of course, be asked to confirm any Options choices made, as these may have implications for pick-up times and, in some cases, a charge is payable for the provision. Some sessions will begin on Monday 7th September, and others will be rolled out over the following week; the date of the first session for each Option will be clearly indicated.
Wherever possible, we will try to accommodate your child’s choice of Options. There are limits on the group sizes, for Health and Safety reasons, so please be aware that boarders (including regular flexi boarders) will be given priority if a particular session proves overly popular. If you would like to arrange for your child to flexi board on the night of an Option, then please do get in touch with either Mrs Luard (email@example.com) or Mr, Searle (firstname.lastname@example.org) and they will be happy to make the necessary arrangements.
Thank you for your support.
