Thank you to everyone who came to the Doncaster Rovers Keepmoat Stadium for our update event. The Belle Vue Suite was packed with enthusiastic and passionate parents and their children.
We updated everyone on the site of the school, and revealed that we hoped it would be at Lakeside. We feel there is a very good chance it will be as we have the support of Doncaster MBC, and many community stakeholders such as Doncaster Rovers, Doncaster Chamber of Commerce, and local politicians. We also stated that we would like any temporary accommodation to be at the Keepmoat Stadium. This is all subject to contracts and ongoing negotiations, but we felt it important to let our parents and children know of our intentions and hard work to get the best site possible for our school.
We announced our calendar for 2014/15 and showed how mindful we were being for families with more than one child who would have different holidays in different schools. Our calendar is here.
We announced our Statutory Consultation will go ahead early in the New Year, and that it was important for parents to be as positive as possible.
We updated parents on staff recruitment, and the high calibre of staff we are hoping to recruit. We reiterated that our staff will be highly qualified to teach our children and continue their professional learning as part of the school.
We clarified our admission policy which is here and made our intentions clear to keep parents up to date, meeting the teachers when recruited and being involved in the exhibition of our school curriculum and the pastoral system to support it.
We also announced our first student expedition as being an Outward Bound adventure at Aberdyfi, Wales which will be funded wholly by the school. This will focus on the students’ crews and our character values.
Thanks again, we had some great questions asked by the children and parents, and we would like our website to hold all these answers in the FAQs section. If it doesn’t, please email us your question.
Thanks again, and have a great christmas!
Gwyn and Andy
