  • Welcome & Latest Update for Year 7 September 2020

    Published 28/04/20

    Dear Parents & Carers,

    First of all I would like to take this opportunity to say again how much we are looking forward to welcoming you and your family into the Idsall School community, and I hope that this letter finds you safe and well.

    Due to the ongoing situation regarding the Covid-19 pandemic, we have unfortunately had to make the decision to cancel the uniform evenings that were detailed in our previous communication to yourselves, and were planned for the 12th and 13th May. Uniform will need to be purchased directly from our suppliers – whose contact details are below. They will arrange delivery of the items directly to yourselves, or for you to collect from their premises once they are open. (You will still need to purchase school ties directly from us, once we have arranged tutor groups and therefore houses, at a later date).

    Baker & Son:

    Website: https://www.bakerandsonschoolwear.co.uk/product-category/your-school/idsall-school/

    Email: sales@bakerandsonschoolwear.co.uk
    Telephone: 01952 641897 – between 9am and 5pm Monday to Friday.

    Bristows:

    Website: www.schoolwearfactory.co.uk
    Email: bsleisure@aol.com
    Telephone: 01746 761701 – leave a message and they will return your call the following day.
    Similarly, there will unfortunately not be an opportunity for us to order any stationery or dictionaries for you this year – please purchase these yourselves as needed, from local shops or websites such as www.amazon.co.uk, www.waterstones.com or www.whsmith.co.uk.

    With regards to housekeeping, there are some sections of the Pupil Information Booklet that need returning to us as soon as possible. Please can you, by the 16th May, either post the completed booklet back to Idsall – marking it for the attention of the Admissions Department, or alternatively, complete the online form here:

    Year 7 September 2020-Online Form

    In addition to the above, should you wish for your child to have music lessons when they attend Idsall, as detailed within the booklet, please can you email Mrs Shaw (Head of Music) directly on hshaw@idsall.shropshire.sch.uk

    I was really looking forward to visiting our local primary schools to meet the pupils, and tell them all about Idsall, and answer any questions they may have. During this time, I also speak to the teachers to gain valuable information about pupils that will enable me to help them settle in quickly. Please rest assured, I am in communication with the schools via email and telephone, and will ensure that I am able to pass some information on to pupils in some form or other, in the near future.  Please find a short video clip from myself below. 

     

     

     

    As schools re-open, and we have more information as to when this may be and the restrictions that may be in place, we will be in touch to discuss the possibility of a parental information evening and a school visit for pupils. In the meantime, if you have any important questions or concerns – please send them for the attention of Mrs Reeve to info@idsall.shropshire.sch.uk. In addition, please note, in Modern Foreign Languages one half year will all study French and the other half, German.  If you have any reason for a particular language preference, please let me know by Friday 16th May.

    I look forward to seeing you as soon as I can – stay safe and well.

    Yours faithfully,

     

     

    Mrs J Reeve

    Head of Year 7
