Open Evening 2nd October 2018
6 September 2018 (by Lisa Slight (lslight))
Change of school day timings for students to accommodate Open Evening
This annual event is an important and busy one in the life of the School. It is especially relevant to help prospective parents decide if they wish to apply to join the St Edmund’s family. Last year the school received over 475 applications for 212 places.
All staff work very hard on that day and late into the evening to provide a lively and informative occasion for the benefit of prospective pupils and their parents. No doubt your son or daughter may be among the many pupils who will also contribute to the success of the evening by acting as guides or classroom assistants.
You may already be aware that school will finish early on Tuesday 2nd October 2018 (1.00pm) to enable preparations to take place. On the following day, Wednesday 3rd October 2018, all pupils will be expected to arrive in School for morning registration at 9.30am. Lessons will begin with Period 2 at 9.45am. This will provide an opportunity for staff to dismantle displays and re-organise their teaching spaces to receive the pupils. I trust that this arrangement will cause you no inconvenience and I know that we can count upon your support for the success of our Open Evening.
Should you have an issue with childcare, please contact the school reception, as we will be able to supervise a small number of pupils in the LLRC between 8.30-9.30am.
