Weekly Message from Mr Harding, Executive Headteacher
This week we are interviewing for the Headteacher position for Codsall High School. It will be a full on two days for the three candidates we have shortlisted but I'm more than conscious that any change generates a sense of uncertainty in some quarters.
We will appoint the very best person for the job, someone who will build on the work we have undertaken in the last seven years and take Codsall High School on to even higher things. The ethos and culture we share will be a pivotal element in any future development and I look forward to sharing the outcome in due course.

On-Line Reading Platform

Code Name Verity tells the story of an unlikely friendship between two British women in the second world war: Maddie, a pilot, and Verity, a spy. After being captured by Nazis in France, Verity has just two weeks to document everything she knows about the British war effort. Through this, we learn about their time working in the Women’s Auxiliary Air Force, and the dangers they faced.

The book celebrates the roles British women played in the war, and is a story of bravery, intelligence, and heartbreak. 

Suitable for:  All year groups at CCHS

Mobile phone reminder
Rules
1. Students are not permitted to carry or use mobile phones within the
school at any point during the school day, including break and lunch.
2. Phones must either be left at Student Services at the start of the school
day or switched off in their school bag.
Rationale
• The school places great importance on the wellbeing and safety of all
individuals and mobile phone use during the school day has been proven
to lead to incidents of;
➢ bullying
➢ intimidation
➢ deteriorating mental health and wellbeing.
Learning is impacted upon in a negative way by issues around mobile phone use for
social purposes.
Students wishing to carry a mobile phone to and from school for their personal
safety should ensure that their phone is switched off in their bag. If students are
unable to do this they should leave it in Student Services before 8.30am and then
collect it at 3.00pm. They will be issued a ticket which can be exchanged for their
phone at the end of the day.
Sanctions
Mobile phones will be confiscated if seen.  Parents or a nominated adult will be required to collect the mobile phone.  
Please see details of the policy here.

Uniform Expectations
Students are aware that we expect them to wear their uniform with pride.  Should a studnet experience an incident which means that they are unable to wear an item of uniform to school for a short period of time, please provide a signed note to that effect.  We have items of uniform that we can lend students for a limited period of time.  We can also offer some support if parents are experiencing difficulty acquiring uniform. 
Please note, if a student arrives in school without the correct uniform and without a note from a parent/carer, the Pastoral Team will contact home and the student may be required to spend time in our Refocus unit until the correctable uniform issue is resolved.

Have your circumstances changed recently?

Parents claiming some benefits can claim free school meals for any of their children who are registered at a Staffordshire school and who would normally be at school at lunch time. School meals are a good way to ensure that your child eats well at lunchtime and you can save yourself time and money.

Even if you don't want your children to have the meals, claiming them helps their school. The more eligible parents who claim meals, the more funding the school receives.

The phone number for the free school entitlement checking service team has changed.  Should you need to contact them regarding any claims queries, their number is now 0300 111 8007  option 3, then option 2
