School Uniform

Last week I reinforced in all assemblies the importance of wearing full school uniform. This forms one of our school non-negotiables and is an extremely important tool in creating the atmosphere and ethos of YBB as well as setting the appropriate tone for learning. Our website makes it very clear of what is acceptable and what is not acceptable and we expect all our pupils to be dressed appropriately. Any pupil not wearing full uniform must have a valid reason that has been communicated to their well being director from their parent or carer. Consistent non compliance will result in appropriate sanctions.

I am very proud of how the vast majority of my pupils look and thank all parents or carers for their ongoing support.

A reminder that the school uniform supplier is Sportec in Neath and items of clothing can be purchased direct from their shop or website:

Changes to School Day for September 2018

Following consultation with staff, parents and the wider community the plans to change the school day to allow more cross phase opportunities as well as parity across all phases of the school has now closed. Can I thank all parties who have given feedback or have asked for clarification on particular issues. This has allowed us to ensure that the new timings are best fit for all. I will be putting the timings, which will be in place from September 2018, onto the school website early next week.

Year 11 have a treat in store next Monday when we will be visitied by Positively MAD – Student Seminars. They will work with Year 11 on encouraging good study skills such as mind mapping and how to manage their revision. We are all looking forward to learning new techniques and getting revision into a higher gear!
