Weather warning

Dear Parents and Carers, 

Whilst it has been quite mild up until now, the forecasters are beginning to talk about a change in the weather and it is likely that we will see some snow at some point this term. As a precaution I thought it useful to remind parents about our procedure for snow days.

It is always my intention to remain open whatever the weather whenever possible and I am proud that last year we lost very little learning time because of the weather.

In the unlikely event that we are not able to open because the school site is not safe or insufficient staff are able to get to school a notice will be added to the front page of the school website www.bishopstopfords.enfield.sch.uk and an email to parents will be sent by 6.30am. If no such actions have been taken, please assume the school is open as usual.  If the school has to be closed then we will always aim to open again on the next day.

Very occasionally, it has been necessary to close the school early to ensure that the students are able to get home safely when a weather event is closing in. If this were the case, we would email and text message parents by 1.00pm.  Again, if the school has to be closed early then we will always aim to open again on the next day.

Yours sincerely,

Mrs T Day, NPQH, BA (hons)

Headteacher

Bishop Stopford’s School will be supporting the North Enfield Foodbank this December

Dear staff and students, 

I am happy to inform you that Bishop Stopford’s School will be supporting the North Enfield Foodbank this December.

Every day people in the UK go hungry for many reasons, but just a small box of food can make a big difference. 

Foodbanks provide emergency food to people in crisis and their need is increasingly important during the winter period. North Enfield Foodbank is part of The Trussell Trust’s network of foodbanks that work to tackle food poverty and hunger across the UK.

Bishop Stopford’s School has arranged to donate to North Enfield Foodbank on the 14th December. 

It would be appreciated if you could donate non-perishable food items from the list below.

These are the dates in which the foodbank will collect donations from the school this winter:

Tuesday 4th December 2018
Thursday 6th December 2018
Monday 10th December 2018
Wednesday 12th December 2018
Friday 14th December 2018

Donation boxes will be held in the reception area and brought to the green space by Year 10 volunteers and Year 7 form captains. One to two pupils will be responsible for each form in taking their form’s donations to reception during form time on the allocated days.

Childline non-uniform day- Wear it Blue – Wednesday 21st November. – £1

This is confirmation that we shall be having a non-uniform day on Wednesday 21st November.

We will be raising money for Childline as part of Anti-Bullying Week and students will be expected to make a donation of £1.

It will once again be a ‘Wear it Blue’ theme so students should try to wear something blue; but they may also wear odd socks if they wish as this is the 2018 Anti-Bullying Week non-uniform theme.
