End of term arrangements December 2018

10 December 2018

Dear all

Here we are at the end of another term, and always a lovely time at WESC Foundation with Christmas events and Christmas trees and many many mince pies.  Please find below details of the end of term arrangements.

The last day will be Thursday 20th December  with finishing times of 1 pm for School students, and College students can leave from 1 pm, although support is available until 4 pm if needed.

On Thursday 20th December we are having a Parent Consultations for students in education and a Christmas Concert which we hope parents will come to and enjoy.  There will coffee available in between the Parents Consultation and the Concert for parents.  

Lunch maybe a little later for our students as a result.  You will need to liaise with transport providers if you want them to come later and/ or you will need to cancel transport if you intend that your child travels home with you.

The College will reopen on Tuesday 8th January (Monday is a training day), when residential students will be welcome to book in from 8 am, and the usual time for day students.  The School will also reopen on Tuesday 8th January, when students should arrive at the usual time of 11 am at St David’s Reception.  Please note that transport for non-residential students should not arrive before the elected start time (8.45 am for College and 11.00 am for School) as WESC staff will not be available to support students until then. Drivers and escorts may be asked to wait until support is available, unless prior arrangements have been made.

Transport providers are aware of the timings, but I know many students have very individual start and finish times. Please let your transport provider, as well as the relevant residential staff or tutor, know if you change your transport arrangements. Please note, this does not apply to all year round residents in St David’s House (Maple, Mulberry or Ash Lodges) other than to ask you to inform staff of any dates young people may be going home and returning to WESC over the break.

If you need to speak to a member of staff, please contact Reception on 01392 454200, or for out-of-hours emergencies contact the duty manager on 07964 120340. Reception will be closed from 4.00 pm on Friday 21st December to Wednesday 2nd January at 10.00 am. From the 2nd January to the 8th January the phones will be covered between 10.00 am and 3.00 pm. Alternatively, you can email WESC Reception (info@wescfoundation.ac.uk) and they will deal with your enquiry as soon as possible.

Please continue referring to our website (www.wescfoundation.ac.uk), as any relevant information will be posted on this site, including the term dates which are on the “Home” page under the “Highlights” banner on the right-hand side.

Thank you and have a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.

Kind regards

Jane Bell
