The school will be entering a staff team for the Newport Muster on Saturday 14th September; the team will be completing the 6 mile walk.
If families, parents and students would like to meet up with the team on the day, which will be led by Miss Wiles, they should register themselves for the walk on the Muster website at http://www.newportmuster.org.uk/. There are also details on the website about how to raise sponsorship money for Willen Hospice.

As part of our catering services review, we will be increasing the cost of some menu items in the school dining rooms with effect from September 2013. The Free School Meal value will be increased to £2.
This increase has been designed to cover the cost of food price inflation. Our updated menu will be published shortly.
From September 2013 the law is changing regarding parents asking to take students out of school during term time. The Education (Pupil Registration) (England) (Amendment)Regulations 2013 have removed the ability for Headteachers to grant leave of absence for the purpose of a family holiday during term time.
Consequently any requests for holiday will not be authorised and parents are likely to be fined by the Legal Interventions Team at the Authority if they take an unauthorised leave of absence. Please do bear this in mind when planning a family holiday.

Today I was delighted to receive a letter out of the blue from the Chief Executive of the Schools Network, Sue Williamson. This is a national body which ranks the results of all schools in the country. This is what she said about Ousedale School:
'Ousedale School is one of the best schools in the country in outperforming expectations for their pupils and improving their future prospects. There is plenty that other schools could learn from Ousedale School's success.
These results are testament to the commitment and hard work of the students, teachers and leadership team at Ousedale School and a vindication of their belief in high expectations, good teaching and ambitiion for every young person.'
It is wonderful to be recognised by a national body as a great school, in particular for the students and staff who together make Ousedale School such a great place to learn and a great place to work. I thank parents for their continued support and feedback. It is a journey, but if we continue to work together I am sure there is no limit to what we can achieve.
