Health Declaration Form
If your child/ren are attending school please can we ask that the Health Declaration Form is completed and submitted by Sunday 10 January. Please find the link here.
In PSHEE this month all students will be introduced to the Action for Happiness, please click here.
All students will be given a copy of the January calendar that suggests an action for happiness for each day throughout the month. The aim is to allow every student the opportunity for a moment of happiness each day, something that seems far more significant given our current national situation. We will be evaluating our experiences of this in PSHEE and also some Tutor sessions, but may also be useful to use as a family activity.

Community Help Needed for Staff at Pembury and Tonbridge Cottage Hospitals
An approach has been made to a parent of RH7 (Julie Humphreys who has children in Years 10 and 11) with a wish list for essential items urgently needed for staff, nurses and doctors at Pembury Hospital who work on the A&E, COVID wards and ICU. Tonbridge Cottage Hospital have also reached out for help.
The essential items they need are:
- Small bottles water / fizzy drinks / isotonic drinks
- Snack bars / nutrition bars
- Hand cream
- Antibacterial wipes (for their belongings once they have left wards to wipe down phones, name badges, pens etc)
- Lip balm
In a non COVID world, we would be putting out a plea to our parents and staff to make donations of these items which could be collected and then dropped off to the hospital staff, however, in this time of high risk of contagion, this is not viable and the need for these items is urgent.
We would therefore request, (if you are able and willing), to make a donation to the cause which will enable items to be ordered and then delivered in one trip thus reducing the risk of infection to all involved.
An example of what donations will buy are as follows:
£5 16 cans of drink OR 45 hair bands
£10 10 Lip balms OR 1 pack of 200 Clinell antibac wipes
£20 64 cans of fizzy drink
£30 60 protein bars
£40 140 cans of Lucozade energy drinks
£55 800 individual packs of Clinell Antimicrobial wipes
If you would like to make a donation to this cause, please complete this short form so that we can email you the bank account details to enable you to donate.
To ensure that we meet the urgent demand, the donation form will be open from today @6pm and will close on Wednesday 13 January @11pm.
We will update everyone with all items we have been able to donate in due course and as always, thank you for your continued support of our local community and of those in need to keep the community safe.
