  • Laptop Return

    Published 22/04/21

    20 April 2021

    Dear Parent/Carer

    We will be collecting all laptops and 4G routers that were lent out to students during the lockdowns. We do hope that you found them to have been beneficial to your child’s learning in recent months.

    All laptops remain the property of the Department for Education and need to be returned for updates. It is likely that if your child is in Year 7 to 10 and still requires access to a laptop in September, then one may be reallocated.

    All Year 11 students who have been loaned a laptop by the school must organise for this to be returned no later than Friday 8 May 2021 to the main reception of school.  All laptops returned must be signed back in by a parent or carer.

    Students in Year 7 to 10 who have been loaned a laptop or 4G router must organise for this to be returned no later than Friday 25 June 2021.  All laptops returned must be signed back in by a parent or carer.

    If you need any further information, please do not hesitate to contact me at school: atkin.s@fishermore.lansc.sch.uk

    Yours faithfully

    Mr S Atkin

    Faculty Leader

  • ALL NEW - Colne Youth Action Group

    Published 22/04/21

    Over the last few months Mr Walmsley has been working with Colne District Councillors and other Public Sector Partners in establishing the CYAG.  This is a local charitable organisation aiming to reduce anti-social behaviour in Colne amongst 11-16 year olds by establishing positive activities for young people who live in Colne to join and get involved in.  It is early days and aims to increase a variety of activities for children to participate after school.  The activities are free but the children must join through membership of £3 per year.

    The 3 initial activities on offer include:

    1. Football with Burnley FC in the Community every Wednesday at 5 pm on King George V Playing field MUGA off Skipton Road – just turn up and play
    2. From 26th April: Biking with Go Velo (mountain, BMX & bike maintenance) at 5.30 p.m., every Monday – you cannot just pitch up for these sessions, as there are strict staff ratios and medical considerations, so you must register in advance for the sessions AND be a member of CYAG.

    3. From 5th May Horticulture at the Open Gate Community Garden (off Castle Road, at the very top of the King George V Playing Field) every Wednesday at 5 pm – here you can learn about growing flowers and vegetables and get to take what you grow home with you

    More activities are planned

    The website for the organisation and membership forms are attached.

  • Year 11 Assessment & Leaving Dates

    Published 19/04/21

    19 April 2021

    Dear Parents/Carers

    As your child comes to the end of their time at Fisher More, I take this opportunity to thank them for all their hard work over the years.  The next few weeks will be a busy period for all Year 11 students; this letter outlines some key dates that you may wish to note.

    As you are aware, all pupils will have their grades determined by their teachers.  For GCSEs, teachers will use a range of evidence to assess pupils, including classwork, tests and exam-board set tasks.  For BTECs and other vocational qualifications, there will be a similar approach, using exams and non-exam assessments that have already been completed, along with work completed before the lock-down and after the return to school.  As part of the gathering of evidence to support grades, we are facilitating a final assessment week, which will take place on the week beginning Monday 10 May 2021.  During this week, all pupils will complete final assessments in each of their subject areas.  These assessments will be completed in controlled ‘exam style’ conditions and may be used as part of a teacher’s final judgement of a pupil’s grade.  A timetable for this week has already gone out to pupils.  The final assessed grades must be submitted to the exam boards by Friday 18 June 2021

    School for Year 11 will finish Fisher More on Friday 28 May 2021.  We will hold a special celebratory assembly for the students during the morning and they will be leave school by 12.00noon.  There is no requirement for your child to attend school after this time. 

    We are fully aware that your child has missed out on a lot of opportunities during their last two years at Fisher More.  Unfortunately, we cannot run a school prom in the current climate but would like to invite pupils back to a celebratory outside event on Wednesday 30 June 2021, time to be confirmed.  This is being arranged by our Senior Prefect Team and more details will follow in due course.  We will also have our school Leavers’ Book to celebrate the achievements and memories of their time at Fisher More.

    If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to get in touch with myself at swarbrick.d@fishermore.lancs.sch.uk

    Yours faithfully

    Mr D Swarbrick

    Deputy Headteacher

  • Digital Healthy Schools Programme

    Published 08/02/21

    We are delighted to inform you that Fisher More is taking part in the ‘Digital Healthy Schools Programme’, an initiative designed to educate our students on responsibly using mobile technology to help them manage their health.

    As you know, our country is facing big challenges to the healthcare system. Yet, many of the long-term illnesses that impact so many lives and cost so much to treat are entirely preventable.

    It has been shown by healthcare professionals that mobile technology is an effective way for patients to manage their conditions and for people to maintain and improve their health. Despite this, mobile Health (mHealth), which can include everything from step counters and stress busting apps to personal diabetes monitoring and skin cancer diagnosis tools, is a relatively unknown area for many people. It requires more awareness, and we need more help navigating the options available.

    This programme provides an unmatched education in mHealth. Your child will be made well aware of how they can use mHealth solutions for the benefit of themselves, their friends and their families, teaching them how to find the best and, importantly, safest apps available to them.

    After half term, during their PSHCE lesson time, your child will be introduced to the programme and learn about many aspects of mHealth. Please ask them about this programme and visit the site at www.fishermore-lancs.digitalhealthyschools.co.uk - you too can benefit from what they are learning!
