Principal’s Letter - Friday 21st March 2014

Dear Parents and Carers

Industrial Action reminder: On Wednesday 26th March, Sheffield Springs Academy will be open for students in Y11, Y12 and Y13 only to continue with their timetabled studies.  Students in Y7, Y8, Y9 and Y10 should not attend. 

In an attempt to reduce the number of letters and communications you receive in letter form, we are moving towards electronic communications to send out notifications of certain detentions.  The text system will be used to notify you of Curriculum Area Leaders (CAL) and Senior Leader (SLT) detentions.  The information on the text will include the date, the type of detention and the length.  If you wish to discuss the content of the message please do not hesitate to contact the appropriate Head of Year.  It is the responsibility of all parents/carers to ensure that their primary contact details are correct on the Academy’s database system. 

Students from Y7 to Y13 have been working extremely hard towards the Academy production of Little Shop of Horrors. Little Shop is a comedy horror rock musical, by composer Alan Menken and writer Howard Ashman, about a florist shop worker who raises a plant that feeds on human blood and flesh.  The music is in the style of the early 1960s rock and roll, doo-wop and Motown including a number of well-known tunes such as "Suddenly, Seymour", "Skid Row" and "Somewhere That's Green".  The show will run on Monday 7th, Tuesday 8th and Wednesday 9th April starting at 7pm.  Tickets are available from the Academy shop priced at £3.00 for adults and £2.00 for students.  It would be great to fill the hall on all three nights in support of the students who have worked so hard to bring the show to performance standard.  Please buy your tickets as soon possible to avoid disappointment.

On Monday 17th March a group of Y9 and Sixth Form students attended The Montgomery Theatre in Sheffield to watch the musical comedy ‘Edges.’  The students enjoyed the production and also had an opportunity to speak to cast members.  The theatre company who created the production ‘Funny You Should Ask’ have also delivered workshops here at the Academy on Friday 21st March.

We would be grateful if you could provide your assistance in ensuring that students are aware that they should not visit the Academy site during evenings, weekends or school holidays unless they are taking part in authorised activities with staff.  Unfortunately, we are experiencing an increasing number of incidents where a small number of young people are attending the site and causing problems for the public groups who pay to use our facilities.  The 3G sports pitch, fields and playground are not available to our students as set out above; we have had damage which has been expensive to repair.  Thank you for your support.

Last night on a very windy and rainy evening, the U14 girl’s football team played at Sheffield Park Academy.  The team fought hard and eventually won 4-2.  Congratulations to;  Bliss Patterson, Reina Nascimento, Chloe Murcdoch, Chloe Longden, Cheryl Waby, Jamie-Lee Scaife, Ally Vaughan, Ellis Malkin, Mia Roper, Leah Hartley, Saphire Roberts, Olvia Cardwell.  Thank you to Izzy Brice for leading the team and to Mr Joel for driving.
