End of Year Celebration Trips. 17th (and 18th July)

‘As we approach the end of the third year of The Telford Priory School we are delighted to advise you that a commemorative trip for Staff and Students has been organised, offering an opportunity to spend the day at one of a range of leisure venues on Tuesday 17th July and for those attaining 100% attendance (September through to May Half Term – 25th May, 2018) an option for an additional trip to Alton Towers has also been organised on Wednesday 18th July. 

This year we are offering opportunities to visit one of a number of the attractions above, click on the ‘letters link’ to read the details of each trip, including transportation information, prices and deadline dates.  Each trip is led and managed by one of our four Heads of House.  The number of places for each trip is limited, and you and your child can choose between one of four options. 

Those students who choose not to attend any trip will be expected to attend school as usual.  Likewise, students will be expected to attend school at the usual start time of 8.25am regardless as to which trip they may wish to attend.  The Airspace trip to Wolverhampton will return back to school at approximately 1.00pm.  Students will be expected to remain in school for the remainder of the afternoon and will be dismissed at 2.35pm in the usual way.  For all students participating in the trips, school uniform will not need to be worn.  Details of appropriate casual wear will be released to you in a subsequent letter.

Involvement in the celebratory trips is by invitation only, and if your child has met one of the two criterial outlined blow, they should of retuned home with an individually named letter (a white letter if they meet criteria A below; a blue letter if they meet Criteria B)

Criteria A - (between 16th April and 25th May)

No C6’s     

No C5’s given in lesson

No C6’s

If this is the case, the trip ‘return slip’ stating which end of year trip they would like to attend should of been returned to the individual TRIP LEADER, not necessarily their HoH  by the end of Wednesday 6thJune.  Your child now has until the end of Friday (8th) to ensure they are returned to one of the following members of staff.

Scientist in the NHS

Here are some of the photos from our NHS trip yesterday. Students travelled to New Cross Hospital in Wolverhampton and learnt about how cancer develops in the body, and how scientists diagnose it (even getting to see a real tumour in a lung) and treat it. They had a tour of a hospital laboratory, and learnt about the different work pathologists do and what steps they need to take to follow in their footsteps.

Musical.ly app warning

Musical.ly is a free app, which appears to be a harmless and fun application, can pose a serious threat to the safety of children and young people.

Musical.ly is a social network for sharing user generated music and videos. Many children enjoy the ‘lip-sync’ element of the app, as well as browsing videos created by others. Videos are generally shared between groups of friends, and can be saved as private, but the other content is freely available and is not ‘policed’.

The app states that it is not to be used by children under the age of 13, but many children under this age continue to use the app.

Musical.ly links directly to another app called Live.ly, which has no safety setting, and permits anybody to enter into a conversation with the child. Through this, they are at serious risk of being exposed to extremely inappropriate content and conversations.

Please ensure that activity is monitored when a child is using Musical.ly or any other social media platforms or apps.
