Whole School News

Colds and Viruses

We have had a reported case of mumps in the Senior School.  Mumps is a contagious viral infection and is most recognisable by the painful swellings in the side of the face under the ears (the glands).  Other symptoms of mumps include headaches, joint pain and a high temperature, which may develop a few days before the swelling of the glands.

Mumps is spread in the same way as colds and flu: through infected droplets of saliva that can be inhaled or picked up from surfaces and transferred into the mouth or nose.  A person is most contagious a few days before the symptoms develop and for a few days afterwards.  During this time, it is important to prevent the infection spreading to others, particularly teenagers and young adults who have not been vaccinated.  Let your GP know in advance if you are going to the surgery so they can take any necessary precautions to prevent the spread of infection.

We have had children off sick with colds and viruses over the last few weeks.  To help prevent viruses spreading, please remind your children to: Regularly wash hands with warm water & soap, Use & dispose of tissues after use and avoid school as advised by the NHS after symptoms first develop.

Co-Curricular Clubs and Activities- Spring 2020

With the Autumn Term coming to a close, I hope you will join me in thanking the Radnor House staff, both internal and external, for providing such a breadth and depth of clubs this term.  With regards to the timeline in the build up to the co-curricular provision for next term, here are the key times and dates.

Friday 6 December- All Clubs & Activities for the Spring Term will be advertised in the Friday Bulletin.

Monday 9 December- SOCS Co-Curricular sign up will open at 6pm.

Sunday 15 December- SOCS Co-Curricular sign up will close at 6pm.

During the sign up window, pupils can be added or removed from clubs or activities, which will include Expeditions, Wrap Care and the Sevenoaks Shuttlebus.  After the sign up window has closed, pupils may still be added to clubs, but cannot be removed (unless requested).  Please may we ask that parents do not sign their child up to any clubs without their agreed consent, it is vital that they select clubs that they wish to attend.  It is very important that parents and pupils try their SOCS login before the sign up window to ensure that it is working and their are no login issues.

SOCS Sign-Up

Please follow this link.  The login page asks for the name of the school.  Make sure you click on Radnor House Sevenoaks (not Twickenham).  Your username is your son/daughters school email address: eg. joseph.bloggs@radnor-sevenoaks.org  Your generic password will be sent out separately.

Once you have logged in, I would advise that you alter your password, via 'Settings' and write it down.   It is also important to note that if a club is listed as FULL for the term, you should email activities@radnor-sevenoaks.org to request to be placed on the waiting list.  Your child will be given a place for the following term.   It is also worth noting that if a club is very under-subscribed, it may not run.  In the event of this occurring, the pupils and parents will be informed.

Pupils who are currently participating in a paid club will be automatically enrolled for the Spring Term, however, if they no longer wish to participate in the club, they can be removed during the sign up window.  Any pupils who are currently on a waiting list for a club that they missed out on in the Autumn Term will be automatically placed in the club for the Spring Term, however, if they have had a change of heart, they should remove themselves from the club during the sign-up window.

If you have any queries about the Co-Curricular clubs, please email Mr T. Green, Assistant Head Co-Curricular at activities@radnor-sevenoaks.org

Clubs and Wrap Care During the last week of term 9-13 December 

Please be advised that Co-curricular Clubs will not run during the last week of term.  Wrap Care will be available all week except for Friday when all children must be collected at their normal pick up times.

Please see the attached timetable and school internal exam procedures, which you will also find on the school website in the Examinations section here, along with JCQ information for students here. School exams are an important preparation for the final external exams and we encourage pupils to prepare fully and seriously for them.  We would be grateful for full parental support in this.  Please ensure that you have read and fully understood the exam procedures information and all pupils should attend school as normal throughout the exam period.

Pupils will receive their exam results in the library on Wednesday 5 February at 10.40am in exactly the same way as they will receive their exam results in August.  A copy of the results will be electronically communicated to Parents at noon, prior to Parents’ evening which takes place on the 11 February.  This Parents’ evening is an important opportunity to discuss the mock results and targets for improvement with the subject teachers so please make a note of the date in your diary.  We wish Year 11 all the best in these exams.
