Additional sessions letter

Dear Parent/Guardian,

Further to our letter in July we would like to inform you that we will be having an additional support session for all Year 7 students on Wednesday 2nd September 2020. This is an opportunity for the students to meet with their tutor, their fellow students within their tutor group and familiarise themselves with the school site.

The sessions activities will include:

  • An introduction and welcome by their Form Tutor

  • A form time activity designed to help them get to know each other

  • A tour of the school

The purpose of this session will be to provide an initial opportunity for students to settle in prior to the main body of the school returning and to ask any questions.

Additionally, students will be provided with the opportunity to have their thumb prints scanned to allow them access to our cashless system when buying food within the dining rooms. More information will follow regarding the process of payment and how to access your account in due course.

Would you please ensure that your son/daughter is dressed in full Coundon Court uniform and that they come with a pen! Please also ensure that they adhere to social distancing expectations during drop off and pick up as appropriate.

We would like your child to meet us at the front of entrance of Coundon Court (Northbrook Road) closest to the school reception. Your son/daughter will then be escorted to Old House lawns to meet their Tutor.

Their designated time slot will be as follows:

09:15 – 10:45 7NAS, 7DAM, 7DOC, 7MOS

10:50 – 12:30 7JEF, 7PLE, 7LNE, 7VID

13:00 – 14:40 7ORY, 7CKL, 7ROB, 7RFN

Please note if you have previously received correspondence from Mrs Thompson-Moore, the time has now been updated. The above session with your child’s tutor is now the only session your child is required to attend.

Following on from this initial session we will then welcome all of Year 7 into school on Thursday 3rd September 2020 at 8.25am. This will be their first full school day where they will follow their timetable.

They will finish on the Thursday at 14.40.

We look forward to welcoming all of our new Year 7 students into our Coundon Court family and we hope you have had a restful and safe summer.

Yours sincerely,


Mrs R Tunstall Mrs C Green
