There are many positive and exciting things that took place during the first half term of this academic year.

There are many positive and exciting things that took place during the first half term of this academic year.
 
There were two things that are most notable. The first was our fantastic 'Open Season’. Feedback from visiting prospective Year 7 students and parents for entry in 2018 was really positive and our open mornings had the highest level of attendance ever, with us having to hold four additional mornings due to demand. Feedback used the word ‘impressive’ frequently and there were many comments regarding the warmth of staff, how happy the students were and how proud students are of their school.
 
The second thing that has kept us very busy is the consultation process linked to the possibility of the school joining the Multi-Academy Trust with Nonsuch and Wallington Girls. I am very grateful to the parents who attended the open sessions and gave feedback and the comments we have received via the Consultation email. There is still time to forward any views to consultation@chsg.org.uk. The closing date is the 27th November 2017.
 
As we move into this half term there are many fantastic events to going on which include:
 
  • The CHSG Bake Off
  • Annual Dance Evening
  • Year 7 Christmas Fayre
  • ELF – the Christmas Panto
  • Annual Prizegiving
There are other key events too such as Pre-Public Exams for our Year 11 and Sixth Form students and we will be supporting them all the way. Also last week was a very important week across the country. It was ‘Anti-Bullying Week’ with a national theme of ‘All Different, All Equal’, Our students undertook a range of activities and we will be sending out more information about those activities shortly.
 
In line with Anti-Bullying week I thought this would be a good time to remind parents of our policies and procedures and to ask for your support in following them. The school has extremely robust systems in place to deal with such incidents, as well as extensive communication systems for students and parents to report any incidents. The school does, and will, follow matters up where they are known.
Anti-Bullying Key Steps
1. It is essential that students report any incident that takes place in school to us as soon as possible so that it can be followed up and dealt with swiftly. If your daughter does not report it to staff at school but reports it to you, then make contact with us immediately via your daughter’s Form Tutor, Year Leader or Student Support.
 
2. Please monitor your daughter’s use of social media and ensure that you are fully aware of what is being posted. If any threatening messages are received on social media or through any other means of communication, then the advice of the police is to ring 101 immediately.
 
3. Do not attempt to make contact with any student directly who may have been unkind to your daughter or who you feel is bullying her. Instead, if it is a matter that has arisen during the school day, contact the school, or the police if it is an issue that has arisen outside of school. No approach should ever be made to another child in person or by any other means of communication. If you are in any doubt, please contact the school for guidance.
 
Our parental and student surveys constantly tell us that students feel completely safe in the school and we are determined to ensure that continues!
 
We are looking forward to a very busy but exciting rest of the half term.
