All Years Letter to Parents - Non Uniform Day on 1st December

Students to wear 'civvies' in exchange for Christmas hamper donations.

Once again, we hope to distribute over 120 Christmas hampers to senior citizens living in Shifnal, Albrighton and the surrounding areas.  To support this we will be holding a

Non-Uniform Day on Friday 1st December when pupils have been asked to bring at least one item for a hamper in exchange for the privilege of wearing clothes of their own choice to school.

We are asking you to give your support to this by sending us as many non-perishable food items as you feel able to give either on or before that date.   Pupils in year 8 will be helping to decorate, pack and distribute these hampers as part of their Year 8 Challenge.

This activity helps us to draw the attention of our pupils to the circumstances and needs of others in the local community, and is an important part of active citizenship through our Personal and Social Education programme.  I hope that you will feel able to support it generously.  I received many letters from elderly local residents thanking the school community for its efforts last year.

I will expect all students to be sensible in their choice of clothing and footwear, dress in a way that is appropriate for the day’s lessons and which will not cause offence or endanger themselves or others at school.  Unconventional hairstyles and body adornments that might be acceptable on a social occasion but are inappropriate for school will not be acceptable.  PE kit will be worn as usual for PE lessons.

Thank you very much in anticipation of your support for a worthwhile community initiative.

Yours sincerely
