Lampton News - Week 7

Posted on Oct 11th 2021

Monday 11th October

Dear Parents, Carers and Students,

Welcome to the weekly update for the seventh week of the Autumn Term 2021. 

Open Evening:

A reminder that our annual Open Evening takes place this Wednesday for Y6 into Y7 pupils, therefore school will close at 12.30pm on Wednesday. Those pupils who are helping during the afternoon and evening must have returned their reply slip to school allowing them to stay.  School will begin with Registration at 9am on Thursday 14th October and lessons will run as normal. Thank you for your support.

Vaccinations and home testing:

The school is still working alongside Public Health colleagues with respect to vaccinations for 12-15 year olds and I hope to be able to give you precise information in the update next week. Suffice to say, this is a big logistical task and we need to ensure that once consent forms are issued these are returned to school as a matter of urgency.

Local Covid rates in Hounslow are now the highest in the whole of London - especially in the 10-19 age group. Your child should be testing twice weekly at home for their own protection.


A reminder that school coats must be plain black.

There is a great deal of information in this week’s bulletin - please do take a few minutes to read it.

Best wishes for the week ahead,

Stephen Davis



This week is Hate Crime Awareness Week, originally set up in 2009 to to mark the 10th anniversary of the London Nail Bomb attacks in Brixton, Brick Lane and Soho.

The educate.against.hate website from the DfE has resources  for parents and can be found here:

Amidst increasing reports of extremist content online during the pandemic and a recent Ofcom study showing that 20% of child gamers chat to strangers, it is vital that young people understand the law and are clear about the risks, and their responsibilities online. Parents can also find more information on online extremism via this site:


Train to Teach

Lampton School is hosting a London West Alliance SCITT (LWA SCITT) Get into Teaching recruitment event on Tuesday 16th November 2021, between 5:30pm and 7.30pm. If you are interested in finding out more about training to teach in Hounslow, please come along. For further information, please contact


One Hounslow Awards

In addition to Coach Mike’s nomination in the last week’s One Hounslow Awards, two of our current Sixth Form students, Nadia and Alliyah won the 2021 Building Trust award. Both students were recognised for setting up Hounslow Young Facilitators, a forum for young people to discuss topical local issues during the pandemic. We’re very proud of their achievements!


School council update

The Lampton School council is delighted to announce the appointment of several leadership positions for this year. Suriya Ahmed and Mara Budau in Year 12 will be the new Whole School Chair and Vice chair and will be leading the first Whole School Council meeting in the last week of term when they share their vision for this year and their values. The School Council is also recruiting members for our three committees Learning Behaviours, The Campaigns Committee and The School and Local Environment committee.. If your son or daughter is interested there is still time to join using a form on their year pages.

 Each form group will also appoint a representative who will attend important meetings during the year and give feedback to members of Senior Leadership. Last year members provided valuable feedback on  the new timetable, the new canteen, learning behaviour during “Bubble teaching” and during the January school closure.  They were also supremely active in raising awareness for mental health and wellbeing and money for charities. 

We want the School Council to be inclusive for all students and a platform for positive communication and change within the school community and are excited about the contribution it will make to the whole school this year.
