Weekly Message from Mr Harding, Executive Headteacher
This week we are holding our first ever Tie Awards Presentation Evening. I'm delighted that we get the opportunity to formally recognise the abundance of hard working, diligent and considerate children we are fortunate to have here at Codsall High School.
The awards are designed to recognise the children that may not have got the recognition they have deserved in the past. I hope that we get to host many more such events in the future.
There will be a letter coming home to parents in the near future formally announcing the appointment of our new headteacher at Codsall High along with some exciting news about a further consultation on the continued growth of the federation.

On-Line Reading Platform

While the Titanic and Lusitania are both well-documented disasters, the single greatest tragedy in maritime history is the little-known January 30, 1945, sinking in the Baltic Sea by a Soviet submarine of the Wilhelm Gustloff, a German cruise liner that was supposed to ferry wartime personnel and refugees to safety from the advancing Red Army. The ship was overcrowded with more than 10,500 passengers — the intended capacity was approximately 1,800 — and more than 9,000 people, including 5,000 children, lost their lives.

The author crafts four fictionalized but historically accurate voices to convey the real-life tragedy. Joana, a Lithuanian with nursing experience; Florian, a Prussian soldier fleeing the Nazis with stolen treasure; and Emilia, a Polish girl close to the end of her pregnancy, converge on their escape journeys as Russian troops advance; each will eventually meet Albert, a Nazi peon with delusions of grandeur, assigned to the Gustloff decks.

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.
Staff Commendations

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
