New E-SAFETY resources

Please have a look at the new links and resources added to the ‘SAFEGUARDING’ tab by the CP team.

There are some fantastic Parent/Carer guides to a lot of the apps and online games the children may be using that can support with settings and awareness of how they work.

Open Evening at EPCS

A big thank you to our fantastic students and staff who gave up their time yesterday to make our opening evening a great success.

Numerous parents commented on how knowledgeable and helpful the student tour guides were, whilst others enjoying chatting with students about their learning in different subject areas around the school.

In D/T Food, visitors sampled sweet treats made by our Year 9 Catering students, whilst in Maths, visitors played games and were entertained by Pi-Rex, the Numeracy dinosaur. In PE, visitors were encouraged to get involved in a game of badminton or table tennis, whilst in Science visitors helped students performing a dissection of a pig’s heart (the smell was horrible!) At 7.15, everyone came together in the theatre, and were addressed firstly by the Head boy and Head girl, and then Mrs Cook, Headteacher.

A big thank you to all students and staff involved – we are very proud of you.

If you attended our opening evening, and would like to come back and see us on a working day – or alternatively if you weren’t able to attend our open evening, but would like to learn more about our school, book onto one of our school tours by either calling our main reception on 01344 304567, or emailing admin@epschool.org

 

      

 

Today we are happy to announce that we are launching the Classcharts Parent App. This offers an easy, convenient way to track your child’s positives and negatives.

A letter has gone home with your child today, that provides you with instructions as to how to log on and includes your unique access code.

If you have any trouble accessing the app then please do not hesitate to contact heidi.spurdle@epschool.org

Happy tracking!

School Photographs

On Wednesday 12th September your son/daughter will be having an individual photograph taken.  Students will be expected to be in full uniform for the photograph and as we use the images for identification on our student database all students must take part. We use Cardwell and Simons as our school photographer.  Proofs will be sent home with your son/daughter a couple of weeks later and it will give you full instructions on how to order the photographs if you desire. All payments are made direct to the photography company.

Year 9 Destiny School Welcome Evening

As a means of making the transition into Key Stage 4 for Year 9 students successful, we would like to invite you and your son/daughter on Thursday 13th September between 18:00 and 19:00 to meet the Destiny Team.  The format of the evening will be as follows:

18.30 – 19.00                 Parents meet their son/daughter’s tutor (in your son’s/daughter’s tutor base)

This meeting will give you and your son/daughter the opportunity to discuss school expectations, and enable you to ask any questions you may wish to about the next three years of your child’s education.
