Dear Parents, Carers
I hope you have all had a wonderful summer holiday and have managed to enjoy the occasional sunny day during August!
Firstly, I would like to welcome all our new year 3 pupils into the Primary phase and also year 7's into the secondary phase, as well as new starters from across the city and over our borders.
I would also like to welcome all newly appointed staff to Northern House School (City of Wolverhampton). They have injected a fresh impetus into the staff team and have settled in well. As a staff team we are excited about all the fantastic opportunities available to pupils at Northern House School. A significant amount of work has been undertaken to enhance and improve our curriculum offer, in line with the new inspection framework but more importantly to meet the needs of the young people we serve. We look forward to seeing how the new term progresses and keeping you involved and informed of all the developments.
On to matters arising around home to school transportation.
Today especially, has been a challenging day for the school due to the change in transport provision. I am sure a number of you have felt frustrated. Please be aware as school we are working hard with the pupil services team in the local authority to address all the issues and concerns raised today, in order to provide the best quality service. The Local Authority has worked hard since June this year to recruit and train driver escorts in readiness for September. Newly appointed drivers and escorts are learning the routes and getting to grips with school policy/procedure whilst not reneging on their local authority responsibility.
Please be patient and reassured that our ultimate aim is to work in partnership and collaboration with all associated services to Northern House and your child in order to deliver the highest quality provision.
Talks are ongoing with the Local Authority to refine routes in order to ensure all pupils eligible for transport are collected and arrive at school promptly with minimum fuss or issue.
Your ongoing support with this matter is warmly received and greatly appreciated.
On the school website you will find contact details for transport services in the local authority if you have any issues or concerns. Please follow the link:
