Dear Parents/Carers

Sponsored Walk 2021

As you will know, we are asking Sixth Form students to be marshals on our sponsored walk, Tuesday 29 June from 10:45 am (lessons continue until 10:15 am). This year sponsorship is in aid of Ashgate Hospice. The walk finishes in plenty of time for all students to get back to school for buses.

Clearly, safety of all of our students is uppermost in our minds. Sixth Formers will marshal in groups and always be near to other groups of Sixth Form marshals and staff marshals. Some students will be taken by coach and then placed in position by staff. At the end of the walk, students are allowed to make their own way home with friends. Because of this, Sixth Formers are registered in the morning and at marshal points but not at the end of the day.

Please note on this day your child will not be directly supervised at all times. We are emphasising that all young people should stay in groups and at no time wander off alone. This is just a sensible safety precaution and I would be grateful if you would emphasise this at home too.

Students will not need to be in school uniform for any part of the day but sensible casual clothes should be worn (and plenty of sunscreen applied just in case). Clothing should be appropriate. Our sixth formers are acting as adult marshals for the day, and they should create a good impression.

Please give your consent via the app by Friday 18 June.

Yours faithfully

 

Mr C Bradley
Assistant Headteacher – Sixth Form
