Key Stage 3 Bulletin – Number 5

Christmas is fast approaching but the hard work never stops. By the end of this week, all Lower School Students will have received their Interim reports. One purpose of issuing Interim reports is to identify to students and their parents/ carers the effort that we feel the student is making in each subject against the criteria of classwork, homework, behaviour and organisation. This means that students have time to evaluate their progress and to take timely action either to continue the good effort they are making or to target subjects in which they could try harder. We hope that you, as parents and carers will have the opportunity to discuss them with your children.

Inclement Weather

The weather is also now getting colder, in the event of any emergency school closure or inclement weather, please ring 08447 70 75 76 and enter code 62237. This is a dedicated telephone line which will provide you with the relevant information for Crickhowell High School. Alternately, visit the School Closure Notices on the School Website. This information can also be found in the Student Planner on page 11.
