Mr Paul Holyome Weekly Update 18/09/2015

Dear parents

We have had an exceptionally busy week here at BVIS and it was wonderful to see so many parents, business people, members of the community and students from other schools join us for a range of events this week. The seminar talks from Dr Lee and Clive Leach were well received, were informative, inspiring and has caused much debate and discussion in school this week.

In addition we have held three coffee mornings this week across EYFS, Primary and Secondary and I would like to thank all the staff, students and parents for making these events so successful. We shall continue to attract the very best scholars, public speakers, professors and educationalists to work with the school community here at BVIS.

Resilience Coach Inspires BVIS Students and Parents

Dr. Lee inspired BVIS students and parents

Next week is book week across the school and a further opportunity for students, staff and the community to engage in the love of reading. This promises to be a fantastic week with many exciting events, guest speakers and activities and I hope you will take the opportunity to support the school and encourage children to continue their passion for reading.

Looking ahead to the BVIS Book Week

I am acutely aware that the bus service is causing some concern for parents and I do indeed share in some of this concern. This area of the school has already been discussed at the most senior level in recent weeks and I shall be making this one of my main areas of priority to focus on this term. Please be assured that we are currently doing everything in our power to ensure that the service that is provided is of the highest quality possible. This week I personally met with all the bus monitors and drivers and set out some very clear expectations from us and also expectations that you as parents have regarding the level of service and the responsibility we have in ensuring the safety of your children. This was followed by a detailed training session led by senior Vietnamese managers of the school. I hope this will go a long way to ensuring that there is a big improvement to the service and that we all receive a bus service that we can be confident in and fully meets our expectations. We will continue to regularly carry out this training throughout the year, particularly for new bus monitors and drivers. We shall be keeping the bus service provision under constant review now and I welcome any feedback that you have on this area of important development in the school.

Finally, It is becoming more common for children of all ages to be left in school at the end of the day well past the school finishing time. We have examples of children being left her on school site until 6.30 or even 7.00pm!  Can I please remind you that students must be picked up at 3.15 at the end of the school day or at 4.15 straight after clubs have finished. Please can you work with whoever collects your child to ensure that children are collected on time. Thank you for your support on this matter.

I wish you all a very relaxing weekend.
