Today (23rd June) is National Women in Engineering day. Some year 9 and 10 students were able to participate in a webinar organised by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers, Institution of Civil Engineers, Institution of Engineering and Technology, Institution of Chemical Engineers, Royal Institution of Charted Surveyors and Chartered Institution of Water and Environmental Management.
Well done to Emily Jardine, Ellie Stamper, Dean Porthouse, Nathan Little, Makayla Pietersen and Lydia Hoggarth who have been training hard over the past six months for their Duke of Edinburgh Bronze Award.
Absence from school due to family holidays taken in term time can be disruptive to children’s education. It can also be disruptive to other pupils in the class. In addition, I am concerned that there could be some misunderstanding of the law in relation to absence from school because of holidays taken during term time.
Thanks to everyone for a fantastic trip to France.
