May I take this opportunity to invite you to attend the Year 7 Parents’ Evening on Thursday 8th May 2014, between 4.30 and 7.00pm.

The online system to book your appointments will be available from Friday 4th April at noon and will close on Wednesday 7th May 2014. Please access the site at: https://cvcc.parentseveningsystem.co.uk using the details you confirmed recently.

Subject staff will be available for consultation in the Main Hall. Each subject teacher will allocate five minute appointments, which should enable you to see a range of teachers during the evening. Staff will sit in specific areas according to their subject. Senior staff will also be available during the evening. Mrs Perram, Mrs Turner, Mrs Grant and Mrs Hellier, Assistants to the Heads of School, will be available, should you wish to discuss any issues/concerns you may have regarding your child or would simply like to come along and introduce yourself.

Could I ask you to please sign in, using the lists displayed at the entrance to the Main Hall. If you are unable to attend, but would like feedback on particular subjects, please contact the relevant subject teacher.

E-mail Issues PDF Print E-mail
Written by Dr Bawn   
Wednesday, 26 March 2014 12:40

Some parents have reported difficulties with e-mail in the past week or two. Either e-mails are bounced back or, worse, they seem to be being ignored by us when in reality they haven't arrived.

The problem is with certain Internet Service Providers who have been deemed "unreliable" in terms of spamming by a centralised list of providers. We are aware that this has applied to Tiscali and Talk Talk, and there may be others; this has nothing to do with child protection, unsuitable material, nor should it reflect badly on the ISPs, other than purely spam e-mails and hyperlinks associated with the spam. Therefore, these ISPs are filtered out by South West Grid for Learning (the Internet Provider for all schools in the South West region) before they reach our servers and inboxes.

I'm afraid that neither Clyst Vale nor SWGfL can resolve this issue. It is down to the ISPs to remove themselves from the database. I am also aware that some parents have even changed their ISP provider.

Clearly, if you are trying to contact Clyst Vale by e-mail, and it bounces back or there is an unusually long delay, please don't hesitate to phone !

Mumps Update 4th April PDF Print E-mail
Written by Dr Bawn   
Wednesday, 05 March 2014 17:29

We have had just one case this week, on Monday, and hopefully the two week holiday will end this bout of infection; we have now had 40 cases over six weeks or so, all but one have returned to College, and fortunately none of the cases have led to complications. However, I don't want to tempt fate by taking down these updates, so I will leave the standard advice in place........

If you have had mumps, the medical advice is not to return until at least five days after the first appearance of swollen glands in the neck, to avoid further infection. This is very important, even if the case of mumps has been mild and the patient feels quite well, as we do need to break the cycle of re-infection.

Mumps can be a particularly infectious condition, so people using the College who have certain underlying health conditions and/or are pregnant should be aware, and take medical advice if necessary. The prevalence of mumps in society has been significantly reduced by the MMR vaccine; this is available for people of any age, and the NHS advises immunisation; while Clyst Vale is very happy to support this advice, ultimately it is an individual parental decision.

Anyone who presents with the symptoms of mumps should see a health professional as soon as possible.

Within Clyst Vale, we are reminding all students of the importance of basic personal hygiene routines, especially hand-washing, use and proper disposal of tissues/hankies, etc. (Hugging and kissing will also increase the risks of mumps spreading !) Clearly, it will be important, and much appreciated, for parents/carers to reinforce similar messages at home.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the Assistant Head to your son/daughter's School (Red, Yellow, Green, Silver) in the first instance; please continue to report absence through the usual channels, and if your son or daughter is diagnosed with mumps, please let us know specifically.
