After such positive Transition and Headstart days, it has been amazing to welcome all Year 7 students to LAB and the Sancho community. I would like to thank parents for their support in making it such a smooth start to the academic year.
On Wednesday 14th of September, we will be holding our ‘Meet the Tutor’ evening for our new Sancho year 7 parents and carers from 17:00pm-18:00pm.
During the meeting, your child’s college team and tutor will be providing information on the the following:
- An introduction to Sancho College
- FAQ regarding Academy life
- Lunch arrangements
- Extracurricular clubs and societies
- Review of the ‘Home/Academy Contract’
- Distribution of student chromebooks – including loan agreement and log in details
It is essential that you complete the following NOS course ‘Online Safety for Parents of Children 11-14.’ prior to the meeting. Chromeobooks will only be issued to parents/ carers who have completed the course prior to collection.
Please register for a National Online Safety (NOS) account; You can register here by clicking here.
The chromebooks are strong and robust but are not completely immune from breaking, especially whilst travelling in a student’s bag. We advise purchasing a protective sleeve to store the device whilst in transit. An example of a suitable cover can be found here.
We are unable to support personal devices on site and can only permit students to use the Chromebooks issued by the academy.
If you have any questions or you are unable to attend the ‘Meet the tutor event’ please do not hesitate to contact your child’s Head of College. You may find the following site helpful during the first few days of use at home: LAT Chromebooks in Education.
Please be reminded that there is no parking available on site and all those attending are encouraged to travel by public transport.
