Dear Parents/Guardians

Year 11 Parents and Carers who were able to come to our Post-16 Briefing on Monday will have received information booklets from Norfolk County Council promoting the options available to students.  If you were unable to come, your copies will have been given to your child by his or her Form Tutor.   Our new Careers website, thorpecareersportal.info, has been created to host relevant, up-to-date information to help parents and carers to support their children.  On the website, we have included a summary of the messages that were shared during Monday evening’s briefing.  Year 11 students also have access, via Google Classroom, to our Careers Newsfeed where we will be posting updates about learning opportunities, careers fairs, latest apprenticeship offers, and much more.

The school welcomed seven organisations to our mini Careers Fair with a view to promoting career opportunities.  We are grateful to the Apprenticeships Norfolk team, Lovewell Blake, British Army and Royal Air Force, the NHS, Norfolk Police and UEA Ambassadors.

PSHEE lessons are focusing on the application process, with practical advice on finding courses, writing applications and preparing personal statements.  Over the coming weeks and months, Miss Emmerson (Pathways Guidance Coordinator) and Mr Fish (PSHEE Curriculum Leader) will be running a series of talks from representatives of key employment sectors, and we will be inviting students to come along to discuss their interests, plans and ideas. These events will be announced to students via the School’s Daily Notices, the Careers Newsfeed and through PSHEE lessons.

From November, Mr Fish and Miss Emmerson will also run regular Apprenticeship Workshops on Thursdays after-school in N15, providing help with Letters of Application, CVs and Personal Statements for students who are planning to apply for Apprenticeships starting in July 2018.

Miss Emmerson is available in school to offer help and advice with students’ Post-16 plans.  Appointments can be made online via http://thorpecareersportal.info/help-and-advice/ and parents and carers are welcome to accompany their children at these appointments.  For email enquiries, Miss Emmerson can be contacted via careersadvice@tsasmail.org.uk.

Yours faithfully

Mr Fish

Curriculum Leader – PSHEE

Dear Parent/Guardian

We are pleased to invite you to meet Andrew’s Form Tutor to discuss how well he has settled into Thorpe St Andrew School and Sixth Form.  It would be valuable for Andrew to attend with you to take part in this discussion.

Form Tutors will be seated in House groups and Heads of House will be available to talk through particular concerns.

This first meeting will give you an opportunity to share information from Key Stage 2, attendance, the initial TG (Target Grade) and discuss how Andrew’s progress can best be supported by his Tutor.  There will also be a second Parent Consultation Evening in May 2018 to discuss Andrew’s progress with subject teachers.

To book an appointment, please logon to the ‘My Child at School’ online facility from Wednesday 20 September 2017 after 10.00 am, via the school website (instructions can be found on the reverse of this letter).  We would appreciate any feedback on the ease of use of this new online booking system.   Please email office@thorpe-st-andrew.norfolk.sch.uk with your comments.

Student data sheets will be distributed on the evening for you to check and amend if necessary and place in box provided.

To help alleviate parking congestion, please park in the car park which is signposted off Pound Lane next to the ‘All Weather Pitch’.

I look forward to seeing you on 27 September 2017.  If for any reason you are unable to attend, please would you contact Andrew’s Form Tutor.

 

Yours sincerely

Mrs Cowan

Acting Assistant Principal

Dear Parent/Guardian

We would like to invite you and your son/daughter to attend our ‘Working for Success Evening’ on Thursday 28 September 2017 at *  in the main South Site Hall.

The evening aims to give you all the advice and guidance that we can, so that you can support your son/daughter through the difficult Years 10 and 11, enabling him/her to achieve success.

This is a time of change in education and this will significantly affect Year 10 as they progress with their studies, so we would encourage your attendance at this presentation.

The focus of the evening will be around the following commitment from yourselves:

‘As a parent, I realise that your son/daughter can perform even better than he/she achieved in Year 9, and I know it is my responsibility to support and encourage this improvement’.

Parking will be available from the Pound Lane entrance.

 

Yours faithfully                                                                                              

Mr G Dewar

Assistant Principal
