Work Experience Placement – Monday 9 to Friday 13 February 2015

As part of the Year 10 Curriculum all students  are required to complete an unpaid Work Experience Placement. The placement will run from Monday 9th to Friday 13th February 2015. It is anticipated that all Year 10 students will be on Work Experience during this week and it is important that you are not taken out  of academy or holidays/ appointments during this period.

The main aim of Work Experience is to help you  become aware of the personal skills and attitudes  necessary in the world of work. As well as providing an insight into the world of work, many students find that references from their Work Experience Placement can be a great help with career direction and attempting to secure employment or college placements.

Foodbank appeal

Dear Parent /Carer

I wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for your incredilble support during our most recent charity appeal in support of  our local food bank.   Our school has always done a lot for charity and this is only possible due to the generosity of our students and their families.

For this appeal, we have collected a simply stunning amount of food  in just  2 weeks:  well over 2,250  items to donate . The  food bank supports local families in crisis, many of whom have not eaten for three days when they are referred there.

This is a true reflection of the spirit of Washwood Heath, a place where we work together and make things  happen .  We are proud of each and every one of our students for their  kindness to  families  in difficult circumstances.
