I am writing regarding the latest updates around the opening of Lace Hill Academy. Lace Hill Academy will open to pupils on September 4th and will be housed at George Grenville Academy. The plan is to move into the new premises at Lace Hill on November 2nd. Bucks County Council and the developers are continuing to work towards accelerating the completion date for the new building. At present, we do not know exactly when the building will be handed over to us, but it is possible that we will be able to significantly bring forward the opening date at Lace Hill. Once the Trust has all the assurances that the developers are able to guarantee a completion date, we will inform parents of the date we will move into Lace Hill.
Whilst housed at George Grenville Academy, transport to and from the school will be provided by Bucks County Council. The details of this should have already been sent to you by the Bucks County Council under separate cover. If you have not received details of travel arrangements you can access the letter via the Lace Hill website News section http://www.lacehillacademy.co.uk/latest-news. If you have not confirmed your preferred travel option, please email Andrew Tusting at email@example.com so that the necessary arrangements can be made and confirmed with you by Bucks County Council.
Enclosed is a letter detailing some changes that are required regarding lunch menu choices for the first two weeks of school. Please return your new menu choices at your 1:1 consultation meeting on Wednesday 2nd or Thursday 3rd September. You should have already had your appointment time confirmed. Please note these meetings will take place at the George Grenville Academy site, in Chandos Road, Buckingham, MK18 1AP.
The pupils first full day of school will be Friday 4th September. Please note the timings of the school day whilst we are housed at the George Grenville Academy will be as follows:
08:45 Arrival at school 14:55 Depart from school
Nursery sessions will run from 08:45-11:45 and 11:55-14:55
Please note that wrap around care sessions do not start until Monday 7th September. Should you wish to book wrap around care, please contact Mind the Gap via www.mind-thegap.co.uk
Additionally enclosed is a letter to inform you of how to register for ParentMail so that we are able to update you on school news, activities and allow you to make payments for trips etc. This will be the preferred way that Lace Hill Academy will communicate and accept payment from families, instead of traditional methods, therefore it is essential you complete your registration with ParentMail.
If you have any queries, comments or concerns regarding the arrangements for your child starting school you can contact the Academy during the summer break by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
I look forward to welcoming you and your child to Lace Hill Academy in September.
