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.

Extra-Curricular Activities

I am delighted to attach the most up-to-date timetable of our Extra-Curricular Activities at the Bishop Stopford’s School.  Our committed staff will once again deliver a comprehensive Enrichment programme.
 
I hope you will take the time to speak to your child about making the effort to attend these free activities.  Our school ethos is firmly based in the ‘Strive for Five’ approach to learning and these activities will support your child in becoming a rounded student.  In addition educational research has shown that the increased effort and resilience associated with pursuing such activities can raise attainment in the classroom.
 
I look forward to seeing your child at these activities and hope they ignite an interest that can be nurtured further.
