Lampton School - Week 33

Posted on May 23rd 2022



Monday 23rd May


Dear Parents, Carers and Students,

Welcome to our weekly update for the sixth week of the Summer Term 2022 and the last week of our academic year. All year groups will be promoted and our new timetable will begin when we return to school on Tuesday 7th June 2022. It is a particularly exciting time for Y9 who will move to Y10 and begin their GCSE options and Y10 as they move to the final year of the GCSE course in Y11. Our praise theme of ‘preparation’ continues this week and is important for all members of our community as we prepare for the challenges and opportunities of a new school year.

We said farewell to our Y13 students on Friday afternoon and they commenced their Public Examinations today. We look forward to celebrating their success on results day in August!

A reminder that Friday 27th May and Monday 6th June are INSET days, therefore school is closed for students. School resumes at the usual time of 8.40am on Tuesday 7th June - on this day all students must have a valid school ID card in order to access the canteen. Replacement cards, free of charge, are available between now and Thursday 26th May at Student Services. Please ensure that your child is prepared! Also, please use the break to ensure that uniform is refreshed and equipment for learning fully stocked.

With best wishes for the week ahead,

Stephen Davis


INSET day and examinations

This Friday is an INSET day and so the school will be closed to students except for those taking public examinations. All students in Year 11 will sit a Chemistry examination in the morning, and then those who also study Computer Science will stay behind to revise in the library, before attending their afternoon examination. Students who do not study Computer Science should leave the site following their Chemistry examination. There is also an A-Level Geography examination in the morning for Year 13 students. Students should attend wearing uniform as usual, and lunch will be available for students remaining on site.


Consultation on school uniform policy

Following on from recent government legislation, we are writing a new uniform policy ready for September 2022. We are currently consulting the school’s trustees, staff, students and would like to invite parents to share their views on the school’s uniform.

The aim of adopting a new school uniform policy are:

  • To ensure that students are suitably dressed for the formal learning environment that school represents - students to visibly demonstrate the school’s values, as well as wear clothing that is safe and appropriate.

  • To ‘poverty proof uniform’: minimise costs for parents, and minimise opportunities for students to ‘compete’ by bringing in expensive branded goods 

  • To ensure that the school uniform policy supports the school’s equalities policy both in principle and in practice

If you would like to contribute to the consultation, please do so via this form by the end of the week:

  • Understanding The Law
