This week Mr Lawrence and I attended the Jack Petchey Award ceremony at the Palace Theatre in Westcliff. The award is highly regarded, particularly by employers. Our winners who received their award this year were Chloe Davey, Megan Twiddy, Bobby Deal, Enya Davies-Collins, Hermoine Lawrence, Maya Cann, Charlotte Davey, Dylan Barton and Niamh Macloughlin. Well done to them all, it was a fantastic event. The examinations have now started in earnest. It is really important for our students to have a good night’s rest beforehand, eat before they leave home and arrive in plenty of time so they don’t panic. It is, as I have said before, a heavily congested examination season this year because of all the exams being at the end of the courses, so it’s even more important for them to follow this basic preparation.

On the BBC website education page there is an informative article called Sleep, Snacks and Support suggesting four ways in which you can support your sons and daughters in preparation for their exams.
