As we are heading towards the February half-term, I wanted to highlight several events that have taken place since we returned from Christmas; we have had a very exciting start the 2022!
Our Year 9 students have selected their options for next year. After the half-term break, students will have the opportunity to discuss their choices with the senior team to ensure that they are suitable for the course. The school launched our tuition programmes with The Brilliant Club and TalentEd. This tuition ensures that pupils do not fall behind at school because of how Covid-19 has impacted their studies. The school has launched the house system and interviews for House Captains will begin after the half-term. Our sporting efforts have been exceptional, with wins in cricket and badminton. And finally, our scientists competed in the IET Faraday Challenge. As you can see, there is something for everyone to be involved in at Avanti Fields and more is planned for the remainder of the academic year.
Later in the bulletin, you will see key updates about our expectations for behaviour and attitudes around the school. I would like to thank the entire pastoral team at Avanti Fields – the work they do ensures that children at the school feel safe. If parents can please take the time to discuss the school’s expectations with your children in the holidays it would be appreciated.
And finally, I want to reflect on one of the core principles from The Avanti Way to guide us into the half-term break:
“We are unique spiritual beings with incredible potential, and we achieve our full potential by discovering and nurturing all parts of ourselves – intellectual, emotional, physical and spiritual.”
I strongly believe that time taken to pursue activities that enrich our lives is so very important. Please encourage your children to take the opportunity to recharge their batteries, but also get out of the house for a short period each day.
Enjoy the half-term and continue to remain safe.
