Children in Need: 19th November
This year, as always, BCA will be raising money in support of the nationwide Children in Need appeal.
We are effectively inviting the students to a Non-Uniform Day; for this privilege they should pay a minimum of £1, either to their tutors at registration, or by using your ParentPay account and selecting the item BBC Children in Need. All donations go to the charity and will help to improve the lives of disadvantaged children around the UK.
It is important to stress that this will be a normal Academy day. We expect the usual high standards of behaviour and effort from everyone throughout the day. Appropriate equipment will be required in all lessons. In recent years, a small number of students have arrived at school inappropriately dressed. Please do check that this is not the case, for example we do not wish to see midriffs exposed – crop tops are not appropriate, neither are excessively ripped jeans.
The Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal
We are again supporting this annual event. Poppies/badges are available on site from the General Office and we will be visiting classrooms throughout the week with the collection box. We are suggesting that a single coin – £1 – is an appropriate donation, but this is, of course, entirely at your discretion.
Thank you for your continued support for both of these hugely important national events.
