Dear Parents and Carers,
It is that time of the year again where the girls get to bake fabulous Christmas cakes that will be sold at our Christmas Fair.
Many of the girls have showed an interest in purchasing their own cake instead of it being sold at the Fair, so we’ve decided to give the girls an opportunity to do this. This year our Christmas cakes are 6 inches, they will be iced with fondant icing and decorated with a Christmas theme. They will be on a cake board and covered with cellophane and a nice ribbon bow. This cake is delicious and just gets better with time. It makes a lovely gift for a grandparent or neighbour or simply just eat it yourself. If you would like to purchase your daughter’s Christmas cake, rather than it being sold at the Fair, please do so via ParentPay by Monday 2nd December. The cost of the cake is £8 which covers the cost of the materials used for the cake, decoration and presentation.
We would be very grateful for your support.

Dear Parents and Carers,
Due to the introduction of the General Data Protection Regulation (GPDR), we are now required to seek consent from our students before we make an online application for Access Arrangements.
Access Arrangements are pre-examination adjustments for candidates based on evidence of need and normal way of working. Access Arrangements allow candidates with special educational needs, disabilities or temporary injuries to access the exam or assessment without changing the demands of the assessment. For example, readers, scribes and Braille question papers.
I have explained the process to all Year 10 students this afternoon. I have explained that they may not all receive additional arrangements such as a reader or scribe, as these are based on individual need and we have to supply evidence such as their reading and spelling ages, as part of the application. I also explained that whilst we make an application, the decision about any Access Arrangements a student receives, is made by the Joint Council for Qualifications (JCQ).
I shared the Privacy Notice with them and they were then asked to sign the data consent form if they were in agreement with us sharing some of their personal information with the JCQ as part of making the application. They have all given consent but I let them know that I would share the information with parents and that if anyone changed their mind and wanted to withdraw their consent, they just need to let me know. However without their consent, we cannot make an application.
Further information, including the information for students and the consent form can be found at https://www.jcq.org.uk/exams-office/access-arrangements-and-special-consideration/forms/personal-data-consent-privacy-notice-aao-and-data-protection-confirmation
The applications will be made over the coming weeks and you will receive notification of any Access Arrangements that have been granted for your daughter, later this term. If you have any questions or queries, please let me know.
