Tuesday 25 May 2021

Dear Parent/Carers

June to June - Year 9 going into Year 10 Expectations

On Monday 28 June 2021, our students will start a new and exciting academic year at Beckfoot as a result of our annual June to June curriculum. For our current Year 9 students, this is a special part of their Beckfoot Journey as it means that they will begin their GCSE courses as new members of our Key Stage 4 community. From this date, students will be studying for their GCSE examinations to be taken in the summer of 2023 and the standards they set for themselves must be the highest possible. In preparation for this, we would like to take this opportunity to remind students, parents and carers of what this means in practice.

Attitude to Learning: It is an expectation of all our students strive for Attitude to Learning 1s in every lesson. This means that they must meet the Beckfoot Six Ps expectations by being Punctual, Prepared, Polite, Positive, Proud and Proactive learners. We also expect them to be positive community contributors and involve themselves in enrichment experiences wherever possible.

Uniform from Monday 28 June 2021:

  • Year 10 - Black sweatshirt and black polo shirt - both with the Beckfoot school logo. If parents are having any issues purchasing these items before 28 June 2021, then please let us know.
  • Black tailored school trousers appropriate for school wear. No studs, logos, leggings, cropped trousers or jeans.
  • Shoes should be traditional school style without any logo. No trainers, canvas shoes or fashion wear.
  • Skirts should be traditional, appropriate school style and length.
  • Black, full length plain socks, or plain black or flesh coloured tights.
  • Excessive makeup and acrylic nails are not allowed.
  • Hair colour to be natural in its entirety.
  • No excessive jewellery. One stud in each earlobe and/or one nose stud is permitted.
  • Lanyards to be worn as part of the uniform with ID card.
  • Appropriate facemasks in corridors and communal areas unless exempt.

Punctuality: Learning begins at 8.30am every day. Arriving late means lost learning which can have a detrimental impact on GCSE outcomes. Students arriving after this time, without a valid reason, will receive a same-day detention at break or lunchtime.

Moving from Key Stage 3 to Key Stage 4 is grown up stuff and we expect a lot of our young people. We want them to be successful and to always take responsibility for their learning and attitude. Working together we can make a difference to their lives and allow them the opportunities beyond GCSEs that will allow them to be happy and successful.

Thank you for your support.

Yours sincerely                                                                                          

Miss Mallinson-Powell                  Mr Darling          

Head of Year 9                                    Assistant Headteacher
