This week I was delighted to visit Smithfields School and meet Y6 parents and the staff at the school. The new building is going up at a pace and the staff seemed excited by theprospect of moving into new facilities. Maltravers Academy continues to work closely with Smithfields and all of our primary partners schools to ensure that your children settle intothe school well and we know as much about them as we need to know. The big event inregard to this work will take place on October 8th when we hold our Y6 Open Evening.
Back at Maltravers Academy, we held our KS4 Information Evening for Y9 and other KS4 parents. During the last few weeks’ Yeargroup Assemblies, we have met with Y9, Y10 and Y11 students to underline the importance of planning the year’s work and knowing keydates. If you have a child in these years, please speak with them and offer them support andencouragement.
Last week many of our Muslim students celebrated Eid and I hope that everyone involved inthese celebrations enjoyed their festivities.
Finally, a reminder from myself to all parents and pupils that we will be enforcing our new uniform policy strictly this year.
Welcome back to School, and let’s all have a great year!
Mr M. Smith
