Update from Mr Wilding - Thursday 25th May 2023
Posted 25th May 2023
Mr Wilding has sent an update to parents and carers regarding exams, revision sessions, water safety, e-safety and access to the school site.
To all parents and carers.
Good afternoon, from LCS.
We are well into the busy exam period in school, with students in Year 11 and Year 13 continuing with exams, right through to the end of June. Students have shown exemplary attitude to exams and revision lessons so far and we hope they ultimately gain the results their efforts deserve. Students in Key Stage 3 have also been experiencing exams, some for the first time, in recent weeks and have shown an equally impressive attitude and approach.
A reminder to parents/carers of students in Year 11 that a full programme of revision session was sent out recently by Mr Buchanan and we would like, where possible, parents/carers to encourage their children to attend these important sessions.
Half-term ends tomorrow, 26th May and students should return to school on Monday 5th June.
I have a few important updates and messages in my email to you today.
A message from Derbyshire Fire and Rescue Service
This week, Derbyshire Fire & Rescue Service launched a hard-hitting water safety video called 'Thando's Story', told in the words of Mr and Mrs Ndlovu who lost their much-loved son Thando in July 2021.
Thando's Story aims to encourage parents, carers and guardians to speak to young children about the dangers of open water, and directly warn young people in the hope that Thando's death will leave a legacy that will prevent future water deaths.
This is such an important message and one that ahead of the end of term holiday and warmer weather, is particularly important. Parents/carers can also follow @derbyshireFRS social media posts, to help spread the message far and wide.

Social Media Influencers
A campaign for National On-line Safety has released a poster for parents and carers regarding Social Media Influencers. On-line safety and use of social media, in particular, continues to be an issue for many of our young people. I hope you find the Social Media Influencers information useful.
Please also refer to information on our school website, at:
Access to school site
A polite reminder to all parents/carers, that students should not be dropped-off or picked up by parents/carers in vehicles at the Fresco Drive entrance gate to school. If students are using this gate to access school site, parents/carers must park on Fresco Drive itself and allow students to walk into school via the access road, rather than driving down the access road to the gate itself.
Thank you for your support.
