Letter for Year 7 students and parents from Head of Year, Ms Jackson
Dear Parents and Carers,
I am delighted to hear that your child has accepted a place at Greig City Academy, and I hope they are as excited as we are about meeting them in September.
I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself. I am Ms Jackson, Head of Year 7, and Mr Moylan is the Assistant Head of Year 7. Welcome to our school community.
I understand that many young people may feel a mixture of excitement, fear and nerves as they get ready to start secondary school, and probably more so this year because of the disruptions caused by Covid-19. I am very aware of how big this transition is, but do not worry, our school community will do everything we can to help your child, and you, settle into a new routine here at Greig City Academy.
As you will be aware, all schools have been advised to test students for COVID-19 after they return from the summer break. Thank you to all of you who have already sent the COVID-19 consent form back to the school. If you have not, and wish for your child to be tested, please email email@example.com to give your consent.
Students will be tested upon their arrival to school on Friday 3rd September. If your child is being tested, please ensure they arrive promptly at 8.30am. If you have requested that your child is not tested, please ensure they arrive promptly at school for 9am.
We have the highest aspirations for every one of our students and are here to support, challenge and nurture your child to reach their full potential. My expectations are clear: students should maintain excellent attendance and punctuality, as well as high standards of behaviour and enthusiasm for learning. But above all, I expect students be polite and respectful towards one another, championing each other’s successes - Together Everyone Achieves More (TEAM).
This is the start of a 5-7 year partnership working together to ensure your child receives the very best education, and along with your support, we hope to produce some of the best results Greig City Academy has ever seen from a year group.
If there any issues you would like to discuss regarding your child’s progress, concerns or general enquires then please do not hesitate to contact Mr Moylan or myself.
I am sure that your child will have a wonderful transition experience, and I am looking forward to sharing their successful journey through secondary education.
Ms N Jackson
Head of Year 7
