Half term arrangements October 2018

8 October 2018

Not two minutes ago I was welcoming you to the new term – now its nearly half term! How did that happen?  Here is a reminder about the end of half term arrangements.

  • The last day will be Friday 19th October with finishing times of 1pm for School students.  College students can leave from 1 pm, although support is available until 4pm if needed.
  • The College will reopen on Tuesday 30th October (Monday is a training day). 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 30th October, 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).  WESC Foundation 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.  Opening hours for Reception during half term will be 10.00 am to 4.00 pm Monday 22nd October to Monday 29th October inclusive.  The Duty Manager’s phone is 07964 120340 – emergencies only.  Alternatively, you can email WESC Foundation 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.
