New Letter from Our Academy Principal
14th February 2020
Today marks the end of another fantastically busy and productive term at Ursuline College. As a community we have much to be proud of and the term has been a real display of the gifts and talents we all have. As the new Principal I have been lucky enough to meet many students and their families and I am reminded on a daily basis how excellent and committed all the staff at the college are. To ensure that that all students progress and fulfil their potential I would like to take the opportunity to remind you of some key points.
The majority of students wear their uniform with pride and they are true ambassadors for our school. However, as the holiday approaches I would like to remind you of the uniform non-negotiables:
- Kilts are not to be rolled up
- Black trainers and boots are not to be worn in place of black school shoes
- Acrylic nails, gel nails or painted nails are never permitted
- Haircuts and colour(s) must not be extreme
- Piercings in the nose are not permitted and only one pair of plain studs should be worn in the ears
Further details about uniform expectations can be found on the school website:
Following the letter sent to all families please remember that from Tuesday 25th February the school will be a mobile free zone. Please take the time to discuss the reasons why we are doing this with your son or daughter. If you have not received the letter a copy is available on the school website.
If students attend school their chances of good progress over time are dramatically increased. Please ensure that your child is at school by 8.45 am each day prepared to learn with the correct equipment and homework completed. Punctuality and attendance are life skills that all young people require and together we need to ensure that attendance is as good as it can be.
All students return to school on Tuesday 25th February and we are very much looking forward to welcoming them back, ready to learn and help our school grow. I hope that all families have a restful half term and I thank you for your warm welcome.
Mrs E Englefield
