Letters today identify which students will need to make another choice and what we suggest may be a good fit. We have taken into consideration the latest grade sweep and the attitudes to learning in each of the subjects.

Food Parcels for the Elderly

CCC Student at Morrisons

This term Year 9 Cope students decided they wanted to help the elderly at Christmas. However they decided that it should be a joint project that involved the local community. With this in mind they wrote letters to Morrisons, Asda and Aldi.

Not only did Morrisons reply to the letter but they donated a whole trolley of food to the student’s charity. The contents of the trolley included: canned food; packets of biscuits; dried rice and pasta, hot chocolate and tea bags.

The Cope students would like this opportunity to thank Morrisons for their generosity and help with this project.

We have also been contacted by Asda who have kindly offered to donate some food after the 1st of December.

Pupil safety message

We are passing this on from Oxfordshire County Council and Thames Valley Police.

I know you will be aware of the recent incident in North Oxford involving a 14 year old girl. Whilst these types of incidents are very rare, we understand that it has created a heightened level of anxiety amongst parents, carers and young people. We want to reassure you that there is a large team of specialist detective resources investigating the incident. The investigation team have received a really positive response from the public and are following up information, witnesses and video footage provided following their appeal.
Thames Valley Police in conjunction with Oxfordshire County Council are giving the following advice to school pupils:-

  • Where possible travel to school in groups and stick to the busier roads, avoiding alleyways and under passes.
  • Be alert and aware of your surroundings and avoid the use of head phones as this can be a distraction.
  • Please report anything suspicious via 101 quoting URN 1631 28/09/2016 or 999 if in immediate danger, or inform the Safeguarding Officer in your school as soon as possible.

Thames Valley police have increased their patrols so please speak to the officers if you have any concerns.
Regular up-dates can be found on the Thames Valley Police website.
