In March 2022 we raised £260 to support the young carers in Hatcham College. 

Thank you to all who donated.

 

 

Students may drop books into the boxes marked 'LRC Book Donation Box' in the Reception area of each site at any time between 8am and 4pm.

In addition to purchasing new books with funds raised, we are making an appeal for donations of pre-loved fact or fiction books which are complete and in used but reasonable condition, suitable for secondary age students. 

 

In particular, the school has suggested fantasy type books for the Lower School young adult fiction and any books by new authors that parents / carers deem appropriate.

 

 

 

FORUM January 2021:  Student Wellbeing - Presentation by Mr Kemp (Vice Principal Learning and Progress) and Miss Brickell (Director of Inclusion) gave a short talk about the current challenges students face, the provisions made to support student wellbeing and what we, as parents and carers, can do to help our children at home.  Click here for the notes.

Forum October 2021: PSHE  - Presentation by Hattie Nevins (Senior Teacher, Conduct & Pastoral) and Mark Kemp (Vice Principal, Learning & Progress) with an introduction from the Principal Seema Solani.  This Forum was an opportunity to hear more about the school's revised policy (previously emailed to parents) and some specific examples of initiatives that are being done at school (that our children may not tell us about at home!).  We were keen to explore this topic, in response to sexual assault and sexism in schools which came to light earlier this year.  Click here for the notes.
