Fixture of the Week
High summer and hot weather means the athletics season is upon us. This week we took a large number of students to RGS for the Bristol Schools Championships. 6 boys and 6 girls from each year group competed in individual events against students from secondary schools across Bristol, with their individual points contributing towards a team total.
Students competed in one out of three track events each: 100, 300, 800 and 1500 metres and one out of three field events: javelin, shot put or the long jump. There were some stellar results. Buster won the 300 metres, Evie came second in the 1500 metres and the shot put. Jasmine won the 800 metre race by some distance. Overall, the Year 8 girls came second in the relay.
In Year 10, Phoebe and Holly monopolised the podium with first and second in the 300 metres, and Phoebe jumped much further than anyone else in the long jump. Hannah and Zoe took first and second in the javelin. Deago doubled up with a win in the javelin and the 300 metres, Lewis hurled the shot put into the stratosphere and both relay teams made the top 3. It was a super return on a day of superhuman feats.
Free School Meals
Information about claiming Free School meals can be found here. Please check through if you have any doubts about FSM and pupil premium funding. It is sometimes left unclaimed, despite being really good for students and for the school; it attracts more money from central government, meaning we can then direct our efforts more precisely and provide greater individual support.
Forms are available from reception and our staff are happy to talk you through the process.
