Girls’ Netball

Girls’ netball practice starts next Tuesday for all years. It will take place in the Gym and Sportshall, starting at 3.15 and finishing at 4.

We are looking at recruiting some year 11 netball coaches from our BTEC groups and previous netball team players, so please get in touch if you are wanting to help out in this way. You would be expected to plan and deliver sessions to the year 7 team and attend match fixtures.

Good luck to all teams in the forthcoming fixtures.

Rhyddings shortlisted for cycling funding – but we need your help!

A Rhyddings cycling project has been shortlisted for funding from a £250,000 Big Lottery Fund pot – but we need your help to secure the cash.

We have submitted a bid for £27,000 to buy a range of specialist bicycles for disabled and able-bodied people to use. These bikes would be available to people in the community to help them lead a more active, healthy lifestyle.

To be in with a chance of getting the funding, Rhyddings must get enough votes from Lancashire Telegraph readers. Every paper until 21st September will contain a voting slip which you can send by post.

Only one vote per person is allowed  and photocopies voting forms will not be accepted.

Please let all of your family and friends know to vote for us!

Thank you.

Use of Mobile Phones at School

There have been some changes to the policy regarding use of mobile phones at school:

  • Mobile phones remain banned in all communal areas of the school, i.e. corridors, the dining room and the yards.
  • Students will now be allowed to use mobile phones for learning purposes in classrooms, provided the teacher has indicated this via the use of a green sign on the classroom door.
  • Any teacher displaying a red sign will continue to enforce the normal school rules – mobile phones will be confiscated as usual.

Shortly, students will be able to access the school WiFi on their phones. We will let both parents and students know the details of this when it becomes available.

The vShop is back!

The vShop has been restocked and reopened! You can now log in (to the new-look Vivo website) and spend your Vivos once again. Year 7 students will have all of this explained in assembly this week.

Please note that the days to pick up rewards have changed this year. You can collect rewards before or after school, any day except Mondays. Collect them from Miss Bedwell in the Zone.

Your accumulated Vivos from last year have rolled over to this year. The Gold Club membership is V1000 for all students in years 8-11, and V500 for year 7.

Happy spending!

Year 11 Focus Evening

We would like to invite you into school on Thursday 12th September for an information evening. Please see letter below.

This is an ideal opportunity to obtain information specifically relating to English and Maths, and for you to help your son or daughter to succeed.

We look foward to seeing you on Thursday.
