Principal's Blog - 14th September 2018

The students have settled well into school and many of the older students don’t feel they have been away.

There have been a few issues this week that could have been resolved very quickly if I had been informed directly. If parents need to contact me, you may use the following email address HT@johnport.derbyshire.sch.uk.

Please use the normal link of contacting the Form Tutor, Head of Year, Pastoral manager, Class teacher or Head of Department first to try to resolve any concerns you have if appropriate. Please also understand that I am not always able to respond immediately due to the unpredictable nature of my job and I may pass your query on to a more appropriate person if necessary.

We are issuing new identity cards to all students over the next few weeks as many are beyond repair (some appear to have been chewed by students)!

I would like to thank the parents for their continued support of our uniform policy as the majority of students look amazing and are able to concentrate on their learning in school.

I am very impressed with the number of extra-curricular clubs available to the students this year and I hope they all attend and take part in the new opportunities available to them. Details of these are available in the 'News & Events' section of our website.
