County Hall, Message to Parents/Carers

Dear Parents

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.

Yours sincerely

MRS A M GIBSON

Acting Headteacher

Standards Improving

Jewellery, Makeup and Nail Varnish

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!

Keeping the Memory Alive

After making her appearing on 27th January 2015 on the morning edition of BBC Breakfast as an ambassador for the Holocaust Educational Trust, 6th Form Pent Valley student Charlotte (Lottie) Schulze, organised and hosted a commemorative Holocaust event, the same evening at the school.

Hosting with Jodie Herzog, another 6th Form Pent Valley student, the duo spoke eloquently about the importance of keeping the memory of the Holocaust alive.

Wheelchair Basketball

Pent Valley's Shepway School Games (SSG) team hosted a festival day of wheelchair basketball at Pent Valley School, in which twelve primary school teams were in action.

Witch-hunting at Pent Valley!

The English Department at Pent Valley honoured Shakespeare week in dramatic fashion last week. After a series of events during lessons, the team put on a free play in the school hall to mark the occasion for the students.

Extended Day at Pent Valley School

Pent Valley School’s Extended Day Programme was launched in September 2014 for all new Year 7 students. The aim behind the Extended Day Programme is to enable students to stay on at school until 5pm, in a supervised and constructive environment. Linked to the school’s Sports Academy status, the Extended Day Programme enables students the opportunity to try new, exciting sporting and creative opportunities within the local area.
