We have very much enjoyed welcoming Year 7 to the BBEC family and it is safe to say, they have hit the ground running! We are very proud of how they have maturely handled the transition from Primary School into Secondary School. They are well on their way to being the best year group ever!

Year 7 are ambitious. They want to do well and succeed during their time at BBEC. They work hard and strive to meet the goals they set themselves.

Year 7 are resilient. They ‘give it ago’ and do not stop just because times are hard. They learn from their mistakes and look to improve and better themselves each time.

Year 7 are courteous. They use their manners in and out of lessons and are polite to others around them. They are respectful to staff and to their fellow students.

Year 7 are kind. They look out for one another and take care of others when they need it. They show compassion and understanding for all. They consider the feelings of others and the impact their actions could have.

Excellent attendance is key for all Year 7 students. They must arrive on time each morning (by 8.30am), wearing correct uniform and with full equipment for their day ahead. Punctuality to lessons is important to ensure no valuable learning time is missed.

During the year, all Year 7’s can look forward to many opportunities, including the chance to become a prefect, to join in with one of the many and varied after school clubs, theatre visits and other exciting activities.

If parents have any questions your first port of call should be to communicate with your child’s form tutor via their planner.

Please check planners at least once per week and sign the weekly page to acknowledge you have seen it. Teachers may contact you through the comments section. You can also check any homework or revision tasks set by your child’s teachers.
