#THISWEEK

Coming up This Week

• Monday Week 2: Reminder to parents that Monday 22nd April is a Monday Week 2 and therefore school will finish at 2pm whilst our staff undertake training and development. School buses will depart at 2.15pm.

• Attendance at Culcheth High School - What is the law on attendance?
Under Section 7 of the Education Act 1996, all children of compulsory school age (between 5-16) must receive a suitable full-time education. As a parent, you are responsible for ensuring that this happens, either by registering your child at a school or by making appropriate alternative arrangements. A parent who fails in this duty is guilty of an offence under Section 444(1) of this act.
Once you have registered your child at a school, you are also legally responsible for ensuring that your child attends school regularly. If you fail to do this – even if your child truants without your knowledge – legal action can be taken against you by the Local Authority.
Ensuring regular attendance at school is important and the consequences of breaking the law are serious.

• Clothing Swap: The Geography Department is holding a clothing swap on Friday 3rd May, as part of World Earth Day. This is intended to raise awareness of the amount of unwanted clothing that ends up in landfill sites. We are asking for donations of clean clothes, in good condition that can be swapped in school. Any clothing left at the end of the swap will be donated to charity. Please see the attached leaflet for further information.

• Year 8 Video Parents’ Evenings: A side Thursday 25th April – if you have not yet made appointments, please ring the school and Mrs Maudsley will assist. B side is next week, Thursday 2nd May and there is still time to book appointments for then too.

• Paris Visit: Reminder for parents of students on the MFL Department visit to Paris, that the final payment should be paid to school by Friday 19th April. Many thanks.
