Induction days – Thursday 7th and Friday 8th July 2016
We are delighted to welcome you to Christ the King Catholic Voluntary Academy and look forward to meeting and working with you in the future.
The Induction Day arrangements for our September 2016 intake are as follows:
The visits are arranged for Thursday and Friday, the 7th and 8th July 2016. The children will be with us for the whole of the two days.
You will need to note the following requirements for both days:
1) Arrival at school should be before 9.15 am.
2) Dinner money (meal deals are priced at £2.10) or sandwiches will be required. Children on free meals allocation will be catered for. A small amount of snack bar money may be brought in addition for break.
3) Each child must bring a pencil case with pen, pencil, ruler, eraser and sharpener.
4) Each child should be dressed in their current school clothing.
5) School ends at 3.05 pm.
6) If children wish to travel by school or public service bus they will need to have the appropriate bus fare.
We would also like to invite you to our Information Evening which will take place on Thursday, 7th July at 7.00 pm in the School Hall. You will have an opportunity to gain knowledge about school uniform, school buses and to speak to the Achievement Leader as well as other key members of staff.
If your child receives free meals and attends a Nottingham City Council school, it will be necessary to re-apply to Gedling Area Education Office, Sir John Robinson Way, Arnold, Nottingham NG5 6DA before the summer holidays to ensure that they will be able to have their meal from the first day of the new term.
Please contact the school directly on 0115 9556262 ext 102 to confirm your attendance and state at this time whether or not your child will require a school dinner on the two days.
We believe that wearing a smart uniform can improve learning by reducing distraction, sharpening focus on schoolwork and making the classroom a more serious environment, allowing students to perform better academically. It develops a sense of belonging and community and shows a respect for authority and school discipline.
Uniform regulations state clearly that all students must wear the following items:
- Black blazer with school badge
- White, collared shirt with all the buttons done up and the shirt tucked in
- Clip on school tie worn properly around the neck
- Plain black V-necked pullover or cardigan (optional) – this must not be longer than the blazer and should contain no motifs or trim
- Black tailored trousers – boys (no jeans, fashion trousers or embellishments)
- Black sensible shoes – no high heels, backless shoes, boots or trainers etc
N.B. Some shops are selling black trainers as school shoes, they are not acceptable
- Coat or anorak (no hooded tops, no sportswear, no denim or leather jackets)
Any newly purchased skirts or girls trousers must be purchased from our schoolwear supplier – Just Schoolwear. These contain the embroidered logo of CTK. These items are available in the Arnold store or they can be purchased online (Just Schoolwear). When ordered online they can either be delivered to your home (for a charge) or there is a free click and collect service. All new year 7 students must be wearing these from September.
