CCHS Newsletter 6 - 7th December 2020
Weekly Message from Mr Harding, Executive Head Teacher
Welcome to this week's newsletter. It has a particularly festive theme to it, somewhat unsurprisingly! I have to say that I am particularly impressed with the fund raising activities of our Houses, especially given the very challenging circumstances we all find ourselves in. It would be very easy for students to just focus on themselves in the current climate but I am incredibly proud of them for continuing to put others before themselves.
Just a reminder that Christmas dinner for students will soon be on the horizon. It won't be served in the traditional way this year but we are determined to still offer some glorious Christmas grub! Details of how to order via the school website
Spotlight on Science

All students at Codsall Community High School will study Biology, Chemistry and Physics during their time with us. We have ten fully equipped laboratories, specialist teaching staff and technician support for experiments and practical activities.
Students will combine theory with practical work to enhance their knowledge of Science.
The Science Department aims to:
• Provide outstanding teaching and learning to all students
• Equip all students with the skills they need to succeed in their next steps
• Promote scientific literacy so students can engage with current events
There are two routes for students studying Science at Codsall Community High School:
1. Combined Science
2. Triple Science

Upcoming Events
House Altruism Competition - Each House will be raising money in a variety of ways for their chosen charity.  This will run across the half-term. Details can be found at
Year 11 Mock Exams - Thursday 3rd December - Thursday 17th December 2020.  Mock catch-ups 18th December and 4th January.
Non-Uniform Day and Early Finish - School finishes towards the end of Period 3 on  Friday 18th December 2020.  Coaches will leave the school site at 12.20pm.
Student Success Stories
Congratulations to all of our students in Years 9, 10 and 11 who have earned 50 achievement points and chosen their reward.  Those students who chose to wear their own clothes as a reward had the opportunity last Friday.  Those students who preferred the movie option will receive their reward in the last week of term.  It is fabulous to see so many students reaping the rewards for consistent effort, ambition and altruism.  Well done!
Online Safety - TikTok Parental Controls
TikTok is used by many teenagers. Using the new Family Pairing feature can allow parents to guide their child’s TikTok experience in a safer way. Features include:
  • Search: Decide what can be searched for. This includes content, users, hashtags, or sounds
  • Screen Time Management: Sets how long your teen can spend on TikTok each day
  • Discoverability: Decide on the account being private (you decide who can see their content) or public (anyone can search and view content).
General reminders
The times of the tutor periods for the remainder of this half term are listed below:

Thursday 10th December - Lesson 5
Friday 18th December - Lesson 3 (followed by early close for Christmas)

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.
