7th May 2021


Dear Students, Parents & Carers,

Thank you for your ongoing help and support in following the COVID-19 rules, restrictions, and testing procedures. Test kits are available for collection from our Main Reception. Please remember to report results of all tests to the NHS and the school.

Key dates for Year 13 are:      

  • Tuesday 11th May – Leavers photo on the school playground at 10.00am (weather permitting)
  • Friday 21st May – Celebration assembly 9.50am to 10.50am in the Main Hall and last day of term.

Year 12 should be focussing on their revision for the end of Year exams starting on Thursday 1st July. Individual timetables will shared with students soon.

I would also like to remind students about our expectations regarding dress code and attendance:

  • Students choice of clothes should be appropriate for a work-based setting – so as the weather gets warmer, please make sure you are appropriately dressed for work rather than the beach. 
  • I always try and treat students as adults. As an adult, I must phone school if I’m not going to be in. I let my line manager know I’m absent and I also have to set work for any classes that I would have been teaching. In the same way, we expect you to let us know, by email or phone call that you will be absent. Otherwise we will have to contact you and your parents / guardians to confirm your whereabouts. attendance@theislandviform.org.uk or 01983 522886 option 1.

Keep safe, enjoy the weekend and best wishes.
