Well done to all of those who have completed examinations with the maturity and preparation required. If exams are found to be below the standard expected, students will need to re-sit after school. This is the last opportunity for a full mock before the actual exams, we need students to be fully prepared and to have an accurate understanding of what they need to do to make any final improvements.
I would like to express my ongoing thanks to Walsall FC who have provided numerous match tickets for our students to enjoy. We are using these as an option for those who deserve a reward for earning high number of vivos or for specific good deeds. I would be delighted if any of our students who receive tickets would write a match day report for us to use in MoreNews. Hopefully Walsall will progress through the play offs and win promotion too!
During this week and next the police and I are taking the opportunity to speak to our students about knife crime. We operate a zero tolerance policy to anyone who brings a weapon into the school, any students who brings a weapon into school will be asked to leave, there are no exceptions. The police also explained the legal side of things, how the wrong decision could result in a very serious incident and a long prison sentence. There is never a need to carry a weapon anywhere and the likelihood is that if you do you could end up in serious trouble. Never carry a weapon.
