  • Year 9 Parents’ Options Evening – Monday 5th February

    Dear Parent / Carer

    Year 9 Parents’ Options Evening – Monday 5th February

    I would like to invite you to a meeting on Monday 5th February at 6.00pm to talk about the subject choices the Year 9 students have to make in preparation for starting Year 10 in September.

    This is a meeting for parents / carers only, as students will already have received relevant information in school.

    I will talk about the process and recent updates about new GCSEs. This is not an evening to specifically talk about your child or their subject choices. This will be possible at the Year 9 Parents’ Evening on Tuesday 27th February.

    Please fill in the attached slip and return to school by Wednesday 31st January if you would like to attend this meeting.

    Yours sincerely

     

    Miss J Squires
    Deputy Headteacher

  • Year 11 Parent / Carers’ Consultation Evening – Wednesday 31 January 2018

    Dear Parents / Carers

    It is with pleasure that we invite you to our Year 11 Parent / Carers’ Consultation Evening.

    Wednesday 31 January 2018 4.30pm – 7.30pm

    The evening, which will be based in the main hall, downstairs drama studio and maths mall, provides one of the final opportunities for you to discuss your child’s progress and meet his/her teachers. Students will have received their mock examination results on Monday 15 January and so it is really important for us to meet with you to discuss the strengths and weakness of these examinations, re-focus our joint priorities and support revision planning.

    Appointments to see individual subject teachers can be made using Connect, the same system used for homework and behaviour notifications. The site can be accessed via the school website or alternatively via this web address: https://connect.durringtonhigh.w-sussex.sch.uk/vle/ . The appointments will be open to parents to book on Wednesday 17 January at 9.00am.

    Should you have any technical issues with accessing or using Connect please contact the school via main reception.

    We look forward to seeing you at this Parent/Carers’ Evening. If you are unable to attend but would like to discuss your child’s progress, please contact his/her form tutor to arrange an alternative appointment.

    As the back gate is locked outside of school hours, please remember to use the front gate (on The Boulevard) only.

    Yours faithfully

    Mr C Runeckles
    Senior Leader Teaching & Learning

  • Charity Concert – Safe In Sussex

    Dear Parent / Carer

    Charity Concert – Safe In Sussex

    We are delighted to inform you of an upcoming Charity Concert taking place at Durrington High School in aid of the Worthing based Charity ‘Safe In Sussex’. Worthing Women’s aid was set up in 1977 to provide refuge accommodation for women and their children who were subjected to domestic abuse.  Now known as ‘Safe in Sussex’, they have accommodation for up to 12 families, the refuges are a place where women and their children can feel safe and be given the vital support they need, both practical and emotional. They provide an escape route from violence and the chance to seek alternatives to a life of isolation, fear and danger. They offer children’s support services for all the children at the refuge to help them come to terms with their experiences. Additionally, they also deliver educational programmes for young people through schools, whether or not they have experienced domestic abuse personally. These look at issues of healthy relationships and domestic abuse awareness.

    The concert will take place on Wednesday 7 February in the main hall at 6:30pm. We will have performances from the  choir, a cappella group, chamber ensemble and Year 10 and 11 original compositions and performances.

    Tickets are now on sale priced at £3 and all money raised will go directly to this worthwhile charity. Please complete the reply slip attached and return to the finance office.

    We have some fantastic performers at Durrington therefore we appreciate your support in making this evening successful.

    Yours sincerely
