Dear Parent/Carer,

Year 7 pupils will have the opportunity to attend the school Christmas trip on Tuesday 20th December. The trip is a reward for attendance and behaviour throughout the autumn term. This year’s Christmas trip will be to the Odeon cinema in Parc Tawe then to Denny’s.

We will be leaving school at 9.00am to arrive at the cinema for 10.00am to watch Elf. The pupils will then move to Denny’s for a 2 course set meal and a drink. They will be returning to school at 3.00pm in time for the buses. Pupils do not need to wear school uniform but to wear sutible clothing.

It is vital that you complete the online consent form (please see link below) for them to receive a meal on the day. All meals come with a pancake and ice cream dessert.

The online consent form must be completed to enable your child to go on the trip, please click here to complete.

The cost of the trip is £17.50 per pupil. This includes the viewing of Elf at the Odeon and a 2 course meal at Denny’s. Alternatively, your child can bring a packed lunch. You may make a payment for the trip using our Squid app under “Trips”.

If you have any problems using any of our online systems, please contact the school office who can assist you.

All payments and consent forms must be with us by 9.00 am on Tuesday 6th December and the payment system will close at that time, no further payments will be accepted after this cut off time and date.  The companies we are using have stipulated that we must confirm final numbers by that day.  Unfortunately, we will not be able to accept any payments after the Tuesday 6th deadline. Please note that all trips are non-refundable as we will be sending through your monies to the trip providers once the payment deadline has passed.

The Christmas trip is a reward for most of our pupils who demonstrate excellent attendance and behaviour in the first term of the academic year. If over the period before the trip your child has a number of unauthorised absences, persistent poor behaviour or a singular serious incident of poor behaviour we have the right to withdraw your child’s place on the trip.

Yours faithfully,

Mr D. Jones
Year 7 Progress Manager
