Some public sector unions are taking strike action over pay on 14th October 2014. Some members of our support staff who are members of these unions will be taking strike action that day but teaching staff are not affected and classes will continue as normal. Therefore, school will be open as usual on 14th October and all students are expected to attend in the usual way. The only impact may be to some students who have additional learning support who may have slightly less help that day than usual. If you have any queries about this, please contact our SENCO, Ms McGill.
Patcham wins Argus School of the Year!
We are incredibly proud to announce that Patcham High School has won the Argus “School of the Year” at the annual Youth in Action Education Awards sponsored by the Argus Newsgroup. At an exciting awards ceremony, attended by staff and students from Patcham, the nail-biting finale was the announcement of Patcham High as the Winner.
Headteacher Paula Sargent said: “I couldn’t be more proud of our Students, Staff, Governors and Parents who have all worked so hard to make our school a better place. You are all amazing!”
The school have been informed of an incident in Mackie Park on Tuesday evening, where a Patcham student was approached by a stranger. Students have been made aware and the local neighbourhood police team have been informed.
Please remain vigilant.
