Pent Valley Governors' Response to Consultation on a Proposal to Close Pent Valley Technology College - 02.02.2016
Proposed demonstration at County Hall, Thursday 4th February 2016
I have had some absence requests from parents, asking that pupils be allowed to attend the anti-closure demonstration on Thursday. As a school we cannot condone or authorise a pupil absence for this demonstration and it is in the pupils interests to be in school all day, being taught by their teachers and not to suffer any interruptions in their learning.
Thank you for your support in this matter.

Standards are Improving at Pent Valley our Local Authority review confirms.

We have decided that we are going to have a zero tolerance to jewellery. From September, pupils are not allowed to wear any, apart from a wrist watch. It has proved very difficult to manage in terms of what plain studs are and there is a health and safety risk with sleeper ear-rings. Makeup is only allowed to be worn by KS4 pupils and this must be discreet, if we can see it, they are wearing too much. We are also banning pupils from wearing nail varnish or acrylic nails for school. Parents, please can you continue to support with our high expectations so that we can concentrate on teaching and learning. We have a wonderfully smart uniform and pupils have been wearing it with pride, we very much believe that if you look smart, you think smart!
