Parents wishing to order new uniform will benefit by the online 5% discount (until the end of 2018) currently being offered following a decision to close your local uniform shop. Please see www.schooltrends.co.uk and follow the ‘Parents order here link’. Delivery for online orders has been reduced to £2.99.
Between 12th and 23rd March students will be invited to an interview with a member of the SLT team to discuss their option choices. The dates and times of these interviews will be published in the daily student briefing. During these interviews the option choices will be discussed but there is no expectation to come to a final decision at this point. Students are expected to complete and hand in their option sheet to Mrs Kingham by 23rd March at the latest. There will be a Year 9 Parents evening on Wednesday 21st March where parents will have the opportunity to talk to their child’s teachers about the progress they are making in each individual subject.
Please note that the school closes today for half term and re-opens on Monday 26 February 2018. The school will only be open on Friday 16 February to deal with any queries until 1.30pm.
Year 9 Options evening will be held on Thursday 15th Feb 5pm – 7pm. A letter with full details will be sent to parents shortly.
Heritage High School will be open today as usual. Please take care on your journey today due to weather conditions.
Dear Parents and Carers,
Please be aware that we have received a request for the following to be shared with you from Derbyshire LA and Derbyshire Constabulary:
“Derbyshire Constabulary has alerted us to the existence of an indecent video involving two minors being shared amongst a number of school pupils at your school. The existence of the video has been reported to them and they are now investigating the matter. It is of the utmost importance that this video is deleted from individual mobile phones as each time it is shared, the young person involved is committing a criminal offence. Please alert your pupils to this serious matter and ask them to delete the video from their mobile phones immediately; it must not be shared further. Also note that this video is being investigated by other Forces but is not thought to originate from Derby or Derbyshire.”
We have no evidence that this has reached any student at HHS but it is a live issue in the media and across the country.
Please discuss the above with your child(ren). Should you have any concerns please contact Mrs Atkin.
Mrs D Atkin
