Early Closure – Friday 15th July 2016

Minsthorpe Community College

In July 2016 Minsthorpe Community College will be losing a number of long-standing servants to the college (in addition to the normal staff turnover due to promotions). One member of staff alone has been working at the College for 29 years!

These are loyal members of staff who have given a great service to the College and I want to honour their years of service with a leaving ceremony that will start at 12:45pm.

This means that the College will close at 12.20pm on the final day. There will be grab bags available for students eligible for a free school lunch. Arrangements for ordering these will be given to students.

We will arrange for the buses to arrive at 12.25pm. The reason I am making this post is to give you plenty of advanced warning and the time to prepare for this. Of course, this arrangement will not suit everyone and, if you cannot arrange for your child to be looked after, the College will be fully staffed until after 2.30pm and supervision will be arranged for any students who cannot leave early.

If you want to take advantage of this option could you please contact the College directly to inform us that you need your child supervising and we will make the necessary arrangements to ensure their safe supervision.

Start of Term Arrangements – September 2016

Please note Monday 5th and Tuesday 6th September 2016 are INSET days. Arrival times for students on Wednesday 7th September are available in this document.

Changes to College Security Fencing

Work will be taking place during the summer break to make necessary improvements to the college’s security fencing in order to make the college safer for students and staff. Please see this document for further details and how this will impact on students, parents and staff accessing the college site from September 2016.

Changes to College Uniform for September 2016

Having consulted with students, staff and parents on the proposed changes to uniform we will be introducing these minor changes from September 2016. Please see this document for further details. Thank you in advance for ensuring that your child attends College daily wearing correct uniform.

I wish you all a great summer break and we look forward to welcoming students back to college in September.

Mr R P Henshaw
