Dear UCC Families
What a superb first week we have had! I have loved seeing students return to UCC following the summer break. Our students have slotted seamlessly back into our routines, and it has been great to start the academic year without being compromised by restrictions or disruptions. The start of a new term always brings fresh opportunities and I asked students in assembly on Wednesday to use this first fortnight to make a positive first impression with their new teachers. I have to say, our students have responded brilliantly and there has been a lovely buzz around the school during these first three days of term.
Our new Year 7 students have settled in very well indeed. Our ever-improving transition programme provided them with more opportunities to visit and engage with UCC as they graduated from Year 6 into Year 7. One of the key aims of our transition processes is to foster a genuine sense of belonging, as we know this has a huge impact on young people when they enter secondary school education. It has been great getting to know our Year 7 students and I offer a very warm welcome to all our new UCC families!
My final message is to say 'thank you' to everyone who wrote in to offer their support, following our appearance in the Daily Mail. Your kind words were gratefully received, and we have been overwhelmed by the response from our parent community.
Please take the time to read through the rest of the newsletter.
I hope you have a great weekend.
Mr B Solly
