Karen Davies

It is with great sadness that I have to announce the death of one our MSAs; Karen did a very good job for us, was well liked by the students and is already sadly missed. As a College we send our heart felt thoughts to her close friends and relations.

Enrichment Day Trip to York Minster on Wednesday 11 October

As part of our Enrichment Programme, our Year 9 students will complete a short investigatory trip to York and the Minster as part of the theme, ‘My Place in the World’.  This is to provide an opportunity to explore and experience culture and a university city.

Students will be expected to arrive at the College as normal and will be briefed on the events of the day on arrival. They will travel from the College to York, by coach, and arrive at approximately 10.45am. The students will be divided into groups and each group will spend approximately one hour at York Minster. At other times, the students will participate in a ‘treasure trail’ around York, exploring the sights of the city centre. There may be occasions when your son/daughter will be out of the direct sight of a member of College staff. They will, however, have access to staff at designated meeting points and be equipped with staff mobile phone numbers in case of emergencies.  This is classed as “remote supervision”.  As an added safety precaution, group leaders will request mobile telephone numbers from the students in their group. These will be kept safely and will be destroyed at the end of the visit. Should you or your son/daughter not wish to give the group leader their mobile number, please make me aware of this prior to the morning of the visit.

Students will need to ensure that they wear their College uniform and have a waterproof coat with them and suitable footwear for walking around the Minster and wider city.  They must also bring a pen and a pencil with them for the fieldwork activities they will be undertaking. Students will require a packed lunch (those entitled to a free school meal will have a packed lunch provided for them on the day). If you prefer, your son/daughter may bring a small amount of money to buy their lunch whilst they are in York itself.

Please note that College rules regarding the use of mobile phones will remain in force when students are being addressed and given instructions by their teachers during the visit. However, students may use their own phones during lunch time and to take photographs and video footage at the site, for fieldwork purposes. Your son/daughter may also bring a sensible amount of money, if they wish, to make purchases from the gift shop. Please note that the College cannot be held liable for any loss of property, money or valuables.

The majority of the cost for this experience is being met by careers funding.  This will allow us to offer the trip at a reduced voluntary contribution of £3.00. Whilst no Year 9 student will be excluded from the visit, an overall lack of contributions may lead to the visit being cancelled. Please note that this activity is not covered by ‘Parent Pay’ and only cash or cheques payable to ‘Caedmon College Whitby’ can be accepted.  If you are not happy for your son/daughter to participate in this trip, please telephone Gail Mackle at the College so that alternative arrangements can be made.

Please complete the attached reply slip and return it, with your contribution to the College office, no later than Monday 9 October 2017. Many thanks for your help and support in this matter.

MiDAS training at CCW

Caedmon College Whitby recently held a Minibus Driver Awareness Scheme (MiDAS) course at its Normanby Site. MiDAS is a national scheme, administered by the Community Transport Association (CTA), aimed at promoting safe and lawful minibus driving. It is organisational policy that all North Yorkshire County Council employees, who need to drive a minibus in their role, hold a MiDAS certificate that is valid for four years.

Seven people from four organisations took part in the MiDAS training at the College in September. The training is organised into two parts: theory training, done as a group, at the College and secondly, an individual driving assessment, undertaken at a later date.

The MiDAS trainer for the College is David Young, a member of the support staff and Educational Visits Co-ordinator, who has fifteen years of experience of the MiDAS regulations, having previously worked in community transport in Ryedale for ten years. The College offers the ‘Standard’ MiDAS training. If you would like to participate in a MiDAS course, please contact the College.
