July 2015

Dear Parents/Carers,

As we approach the end of term please find enclosed the arrangements for the Family Fun Day, the last day of the academic year and arrangements for the start of the 2015/16 academic year.

Final Day Arrangements
As with previous years the academy will close at 12 noon on Friday 17th July 2015.
Attendance on the final day is crucial and will contribute to your child’s overall attendance for the academic year.
Students will be required to wear uniform on the last day of term.

Join us at the Greenwood Family Fun Day
Family Fun Day 3.30pm to 6.30pm on Thursday 16th July 2015
The Academy day will finish as normal at 3.05pm and timetabled lessons will take place until 1pm after which the Fun Day will start. Students will enjoy live performances and a range of other activities including, an inflatable obstacle course, inflatable table football and a host of other ‘Fun Fair’ classics.
Students should come to school fully equipped, however they will not be required to wear school uniform.
We are expecting many of the activities to be extremely popular so we will be operating a token system on the day for some of the activities. We would ask that each students brings £1 to school which can be exchanged for 4 tokens. Additional tokens will be available on the day to purchase at 30p per token. There will also be burgers, hot dogs and drinks on sale!

We would be delighted if parents and the wider community would join us at our Fun Day from 3:30pm - 6:30pm. Please come and celebrate with us and enjoy the fantastic attractions on offer. Entry is completely free.

Live and loud starts at 7pm we have Castle Vale’s Got Talent winner Skye’s the Limit and Louis Walsh’s new boyband ‘Hometown’ performing, Hex are headlining. It will run until 9pm and tickets are available from the school priced at £2.

First Day Arrangements for September 2015
The new term for Greenwood Academy will commence on Monday 7th September 2015.  

Start times for different groups of students will be as follows:

Year 7 Arrive at 8.30am to meet Form Tutors in the Main Hall, ready for a swift departure to Aston University.

Years 8 - 13 Please arrive at 8.30am for an 8.40am registration with Form Tutors in form rooms. 

Finally, I would like to thank you for your ongoing support. The contributions that parents make in partnership with the academy are absolutely vital in underpinning your child’s hard work; we are all extremely grateful.

Yours sincerely,
Harry French
