Half Term Arrangements October 2019
14 October 2019
Information for parents and carers of young people at WESC Foundation
The last day of this half term will be Friday 18th October with finishing times of 1.00pm for School
students, and College students can leave from 1.00pm, although support is available until 4.00pm if needed.
The College will reopen on Monday 28th October, when residential students will be welcome to book in from 8.00am, and from 8.45am for day students.
The School will also reopen on Monday 28th October, when students should arrive from 11.00am at St David’s Reception.
Please note that transport for non-residential students should not arrive before the elected start time (8.45am for College and 11.00am for School) as 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 timings, but we know that 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 Foundation over the break.
If you need to speak to a member of staff during the break, please contact Reception on 01392 454200. Reception will be open 8.00am to 4.00pm Monday to Thursday and 8.00am to 3.00pm Friday.
The Duty Manager’s phone is 07964 120340 – emergencies only.
Alternatively, you can email WESC Reception (firstname.lastname@example.org) and they will deal with your enquiry as soon as possible.
A reminder that the term dates for 2019-2020 have been revised and updated with two training dates moved affecting the end
and start of term arrangements. Also the May Day 2020 bank holiday has been altered following the Government’s announcement, with the knock-on effect of the Exeat weekend being changed from 2nd and 3rd May to 9th and 10th May.
Term dates for 2020-2021 and 2021-2022 have recently been approved and issued separately via ParentMail.
