XP School Student Devices

At XP, we support our students to use their own technology for learning at XP. As always, we have very high expectations of respect and integrity. We also ensure our students understand how to keep safe when using technology.

We support any kind of device being used to further our students’ learning, whether it is a laptop, tablet or phone. Any brand of device should be able to work, but our students and parents will need to ensure this themselves. Any devices brought into our school are the responsibility of the student and parent.

To support this, we offer a great way to afford a device using a scheme that allows parents to buy a laptop or tablet and spread payments over a number of months, providing insurance and warranty and it being cheaper than buying the same product in a shop.

The shop is open from Wednesday 24th August 2016!

FXP Fashion Show

FXP has organised a fashion show for the 23rd September – please see details below. Tickets are on sale from the school office. Feel free to invite sisters, aunties, grandmas and friends. Refreshments will be available on the night.

All fund raised will go into our students education.

Fashion Show 23rd September

XP School are able to provide for the foreseeable months Year 7 students the opportunity to be driven to the main Train / Bus Station into Doncaster when school finishes at 3:15pm. Year 7 students can then independently catch their further bus / train connections home.  This is seen to assist students in their transition into secondary school.

Due to the increase in student numbers and the availability of only two school minibuses the school can no longer open this free service to students in the Years above. For Year 7 students who have siblings in Year 8 or Year 9 they can leave school if they wish with their siblings on the main bus line or take the school minibus and meet their siblings at Doncaster Train / Bus Station.

 

XP School give their students the opportunity to stay after school until 16:30 hours in the library area.  There are teaching staff on hand to support students with any learning if needed.  Students can work on their extended study at school instead of taking it home if they so wish or complete expedition products. This is known has extended study and is available to students every Monday through to Thursday. On Fridays we kindly ask all students leave school at 15:15 hours when school ends unless students are using the after school football training which is held at the nearby astro pitches and run by Doncaster Rovers training academy staff, in this case students school bags and personal items may be collected from school after football ends at 16:15 hours.

ParentPay and Lunch/Music Money

As you are aware we have had a few issues recently with ParentPay. These have now all been sorted and any outstanding amounts from last year have been added to a separate payment item “School Meal Debt Payments 2015/16” so that your normal school meals payments item is clear ready for the new term.

Please ensure that you log in to ParentPay to check your balance and settle any outstanding amounts before we return to school next week. If you have any queries with the amount that you owe, please contact the school and we can talk through it with you on an individual basis.

Please remember that if your son/daughter changes their lunch preference you as a parent must inform the school directly, not through your child, so that you are not incorrectly charged.

Please can you also ensure that and outstanding Music Lesson fees are settled before the new term.

Many thanks
