Increase in Dog Fouling on the
School Field
Dog fouling and littering of the school
field is once again becoming a problem
and the issue has got so severe that on a
number of occasions PE lessons on the
school field have had to be abandoned for
health and safety reasons.
Site Manager, David Quick and
Caretaker, Malcolm Daniels
assessing the school grounds.
Site Manager, David Quick said: “Dog
fouling and littering is unacceptable. It is particularly unacceptable when
dog owners allow their dog to foul on the school grounds and wander off
without clearing it up, or to drop litter such as cans and bottles which can
become very dangerous. The school site should only be accessed by those
with permission to use the school’s facilities. The school field and courts
are not for general use.”
Head of PE, Nathan Irons said: “The actions of a small number of people
within our local community are causing our students to miss out on their
outdoor activities. Over recent months dog mess, broken glass and
shredded tin cans have been found on the field and even on the hard
standing areas.”
We ask our community to respect our school and its grounds for the
sake of our students. Thank you.
“Our school field is such a great asset to the school that as a community
we must protect and respect it to enable our students to enjoy using
this facility without the fear of hurting themselves”
Headteacher, Christine Jackman.

Our Gifted and Talented Programme is aimed at young people who Mrs Treloar.
have developed abilities to a level significantly ahead of their year
group. The term ‘gifted’ is used to define students who are academically able and the term ‘talented’ is used to
define students with a particular skill. This skill could range from a sporting or art ability to an aptitude in
mechanics.
Our Gifted and Talented Coordinator, Rebecca Leech, is continually updating the register of gifted and talented
students and she requires parents’ help in identifying those who may have ‘talents’ which have so far not been
highlighted to HCS.
Students on the Gifted and Talented register will be monitored and mentored by the Coordinator. This may also
include the provision of additional enrichment activities, some of which will take place in school and some off
the school site. Mrs Leech will also monitor how challenged students are within the curriculum and hold small
mentoring meetings.
If you believe your child may be gifted or talented, please contact Rebecca Leech on 01736 753009 or by email:
