YEAR 8 GEOGRAPHY TRIP TO CLACTON & DEDHAM

There will be a trip on the above dates for Year 8 pupils enabling them to study river features and coastal defences which are part of the Geography syllabus for this year group.

 

Departure will be from the Lower School at 9.00am by coach and return to the Lower School around 5.30pm.  Pupils should bring a packed lunch.  School uniform need not be worn but please wear suitable clothing for potentially adverse weather conditions and (i) a 1½ hour walk along the River Stour from Dedham to Flatford Mill (the path may be muddy so a second pair of old trainers would be useful) (ii) a 1 hour walk along the seafront at Clacton to see the coastal defences.  If time allows, there will be an opportunity for pupils to spend some time on the pier at Clacton.

ELIGIBLE FOR FREE SCHOOL MEALS?

         IS YOUR CHILD ELIGIBLE FOR FREE SCHOOL MEALS?

Did you know the government gives additional funding to schools for those children entitled to free school meals (even if they don’t have a school meal)?

 

    • Enfield Grammar School will use this money to obtain additional staff and resources that help improve the quality of education.

 

    • If you have children up to the age of 19 years in full-time education at an Enfield school, you may claim for free school meals if you receive a qualifying benefit.

 

    You must be receiving one of the following benefits to claim free school meals:

  • Universal Credit
  • Income Support
  • Income-based Jobseeker’s Allowance
  • Income-related Employment and Support Allowance
  • Support under Part VI of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999
  • The Guarantee element of State Pension Credit
  • Child Tax Credit, provided they are not entitled to Working Tax Credit and have an annual income of £16,190 or less, as assessed by Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs.
  • Where a parent is entitled to Working Tax Credit during the four-week period immediately after their employment ceases, or after they start to work less than 16 hours per week, their children are entitled to free school lunches. Children who receive a qualifying benefit in their own right are also eligible to receive Free School Meals
    Local authorities do not set the qualifying criteria for free school meals and as a school we are unable to waive them. Any change to the criteria is a matter for central, not local government.
    If you have a child starting school for the first time, and already receive free school meals for other children, you will still need to complete a new application.
    Apply online:
    You can apply online by visiting the following webpage: www.goo.gl/zpz3T9
    You will be asked to fill in an application form and either email it back to Enfield Council or posting a signed copy to the specified address.
    Apply in person at Enfield Grammar School:
    If you have any questions about applying for free school meals, please contact us on 020 8363 1095
    Breakfast Club
    Students who are eligible for a Free School Meal will also be eligible to have a have free breakfast at school at our daily Breakfast Club. The Breakfast Club will take place at the Upper School Main Hall. More details to follow.

Transition Day letter for parents 2017

Dear Parent/Carer
Re: Sixth Form Transition Day 2017
It was great to see so many students at the transition day on Monday 3 July. The transition day was very successful and students
engaged effectively with the programme. The Summer Tasks for every subject have also been uploaded to the school website
and students need to complete these in time for their first lesson.
The Sixth Form handbook is currently being updated and will be shared on the school website as well as with students when they
start in September.

Dear Parent/CarerI write to inform you that pupils will be dismissed from 11.00am on the last day of term, Wednesday 19 July 2017. It has been agreed that this day will be a non-uniform day with pupils paying at least a £1.00 donation for this privilege. The School Council met recently and voted that this year the money raised will be split between the Grenfell Tower Disaster Fund and our own Hardship Fund, which helps towards the running of the Breakfast Club amongst other worthy causes in school.

SEX & RELATIONSHIPS PROGRAMME

This half term, as part of our Sex and Relationships programme we will be covering a range of topics during Citizenship lessons. We feel this should include frank and open discussion on issues from which some parents may wish their children to be exempt on religious grounds. Equally, some parents may wish to take the responsibility for this area of their children’s education.
