Year 9 Options Evening Success

On January 31st, year 9 parents and students attended a combined parental and options evening, giving our young people the opportunity to discuss with all staff what courses are available to them as they prepare to pick their GCSE courses. We had a very positive turn out, it was encouraging to see so many students having prepared questions and discussing their future prospects, whether it be higher education, apprenticeships and potential future careers.

Our students will now have the time and opportunity to discuss options with Senior Learning Team staff, throughout March, before making their final decisions.

If you wish to learn more, please email dgriffin@cliftonschool.org, or log into MyEd App, to keep up to date with the latest developments as well as your child’s attendance and attainment.

Poppies Are Now Available To Buy For Remembrance Sunday

What is remembrance day and why do people wear poppies?

When did it all start?

  • World war I ended on the 11th November 1918, at 11 o’clock. This is when remembrance day started.
  • We remember all the soldiers who sacrificed their lives to fight for our freedom.
  • Since WWI this date has been used to remember all the fallen soldiers in all the wars where British soldiers have fought and are still fighting.

Why a poppy?

  • The symbol of remembrance day is the poppy since WWI and the famous poem – In Flanders Fields

How can you help?

  • Buy a poppy from H2 at any break time.
  • Poppies are £1 each (they are hand knitted.)
  • Buy one for yourself and maybe for people at home too!
  • Do you bit! Britain needs you!!!

Why a minutes silence on 11-11 at 11am?

  • Time to reflect
  • Time to remember the sacrifice and be thankful.
  • Time to think about those soldiers fighting today for our freedom

11th November 2017 at 11.00am

  • Take that minute of silence to remember, think and be thankful for our armed forces.
