Letter from our head teacher

Dear parents and carers,


RSHE consultation

Thank you to everyone who contributed to the RSHE curriculum consultation.  The consultation is now complete, and we look forward to continuing to deliver a high quality PSHE provision that supports all our students to lead happy, safe and healthy lives.


Sixth Form Open Evening

A reminder to parents of Y11 students that our Open Evening on Thursday 21st November.  Please remember to book your tickets here.


Sheffield Children’s University Autumn Passport

The Sheffield Children's University Autumn Passport to Learning newsletter which includes details of activities happening across Sheffield during the October half-term holiday is now available. It’s packed with fun activities happening during the half-term school holidays: from football camps and arts and crafts, to fun exploring woodlands hunting for signs of ghouls, goblins and ghosts! There are also links to our very own Sheffield CU home learning challenges too.


Covid Update

Covid cases are rising amongst students in school.  In the week  1st to 8th October, 39 students tested positive comprising seven Y7s, two Y8s, ten Y9s, five Y10s, eleven Y11s, one Y12 and one Y13.  We are currently monitoring the situation closely and liaising with local public health.  It continues to be very important that all students LFD test twice weekly and stay at home if they have Covid symptoms.  Please see below a useful flow chart to explain the most recent guidance. Last week, all consenting 12-15 year olds were vaccinated in school. 


Best wishes,

Sarah Sims


Head of Silverdale School
