The Head of School Reports:

Chris Taylor, Head of SchoolThe end of academic year 2019-20 has arrived, whilst this has not been the year any of us could have anticipated we are all looking forward to the start of the new academic year in September and welcoming our students back to school. It has been too long since we last saw them and we are equally excited about meeting our new Year 7 students. We have been working extremely hard planning for the safe return to school and making sure that we follow all of the guidance and expectations in line with the government’s requirements and are very excited about the opening of our new sixth form college, Sigma Sixth, in Jaywick Lane.
It is important to note that now, both the 1st and 2nd September are non-pupil days. Following this, the first 2 days of term, i.e. 3rd and 4th September have been dedicated to settling the new Year 7 into school and making sure they are completely familiar with the school site and expectations.
The first half of the autumn term will be quite different to ensure that we are meeting all of the government guidance for keeping all members of our school community safe, staff and students and there are five important things to bear in mind:

1. Student Zones - All students will be taught within a year group zone and will enter school via a designated entrance and have an allocated base room, school starts prompt at 8.45am, students should not arrive prior to 8.20am. There will be a staggered finish time between 2.50 and 3.50pm.

2. Catering – there will be no hot food offer at break times, hot food will only be available at lunch time for each year group on rotation, twice weekly. On other days, all students should bring a packed lunch including a snack for break time if required. All students should bring their own filled water bottle, which must be named.

3. Uniform
– full school uniform is required. However, as changing rooms are not open, on the days when PE is timetabled for Years 7-9, students should attend school in kit but wearing their blazers. For Years 10 & 11 lessons are theory only for the first part of the autumn term.

4. Equipment – Students cannot share equipment. Therefore, students will need to bring a bag to school with their own writing equipment in a pencil case.

5. Attendance
– From September, all students must attend school.
In preparation for next year, the school has put together a Curriculum Micro-site - Available to View Here, which gives details of all of the subjects available at CCHS and the topics of study for each year group within the subject areas, year on year.
The CCHS Careers Hub is worth a visit for lots of information and resources - Available to View Here; it is never too soon to think about the future.

I hope that you all have a lovely summer; that the weather continues to be favourable to us, and please continue to stay alert and stay safe and I look forward to seeing all of our students on Monday, 7th September at 8.45am.

Chris Taylor, Head of School
