Mid-Year Tutor Review and school closure to students on Friday 1 March 2019

On Monday 11 February 2019, students were given information to bring home regarding the Mid-Year Tutor Review, including details of how parents/carers can make appointments with their child’s tutor through our on-line booking system. Please note that appointments will be available to book for the evening of Thursday 28 February and the morning of Friday 1 March 2019.

School will, therefore, be closed to students on Friday 1 March 2019.

Remember that the Parent Login Code you receive to log on to the on-line booking system remains valid for the whole time your child is at Belper School. You can also use this to book Parent Consultation Evening appointments – the window for these bookings normally opens approximately two weeks before the Parent Consultation Evening date.

The water leak is currently under repair.  At present we are still expecting to open for P3 lessons but will update the website and inform parents/carers by text if this is not the case.

Due to a leak in the main water supply within school requiring repair, school will open late to students on Wednesday 6 February 2019.  Students are requested to arrive for period 3 (11.15am) and should go straight to their timetabled lesson.

A lunch service will be available.

Please could parents/carers be aware that this decision has been taken on the facts currently available.  We strongly recommend that you check this website regularly during Wednesday morning for updates.  If we cannot open, we will communicate this via text and the website.

Road closures on A6 at Milford – 360 Harpurs School bus service

We are aware that there are several road closures on the A6 at Milford and surrounding areas.

The 360 Harpurs Service which leaves from opposite the Leisure Centre (and goes to Openwoodgate, Bargate, Belper Parks Estate, Milford and Duffield) is affected and is being re-routed.  This service will now leave the school, go down in to Belper, along the A6 then up Gibfield Lane (opposite Belper Rugby Club) to the White Hart at Bargate.  It will then turn towards Makeney, Milford and Duffield.

Students who use this bus service are being briefed towards the end of the school day regarding this change, and will contact parents/carers if they need collecting from school or are unsure as to how to get home.

 

 


Access to Parent Portal and student Google accounts

****UPDATE****

The issues preventing access to Parent Portal and Student Gmail/Drive accounts have now been resolved.

Our apologies for any inconvenience caused.

 

*******************************************************

Please be aware that we are currently having password authentication issues with Parent Portal and Student Google accounts.  Our technical team are working on this at present and hope to have this resolved as soon as possible, however, in the meantime, Parent Portal will be unavailable and students will be unable to access their Google accounts both at school and off site.

Our apologies for any inconvenience this may cause.

Post 16 Open Evening – Thursday 22 November 2018 – 5.30pm to 7.30pm

This evening is designed to provide you with:

  • An opportunity to find out all you need to know about the subjects available Post-16 at Belper School Sixth Form. Subject leaders will be available to discuss the course content, methods of assessment and outline the necessary skills and qualities that will be developed throughout their course.
  • The evening will begin with a presentation in the Main School Hall offering a brief overview of the options open to students at Belper School next year.

In order to make the evening more personal and manageable we have arranged two separate presentation sessions:

Session 1 at 5.30pm: for Tutor Groups 11ADW, 11SJH, 11PSM, 11LMW

Session 2 at 6.10pm:  for Tutor Groups 11JJJ, 11HJB, 11AJM, 11CAM

Students from other schools can join in either session.

Eleanor Snape the School Careers Co-ordinator will also be at the event. Eleanor can provide guidance on all options open to students after year 11 including alternative full-time education routes and apprenticeships.
