Cinema trip Thursday 20th December 2018

Dear Parent/Guardian

The school is organising our annual Christmas visit to Cineworld Cinema in Boldon. The movie will be a latest new release and will be a U, PG or 12A certificate.  Students will be accompanied by staff, both inside and outside, the cinema at all times.  The cinema visit is organised as a reward for students who have achieved targets set for behaviour and attendance.

The cost of the visit is £12.  This includes entry to the film, insurance and coach travel.  No other costs are incurred.  Please note that food concessions will not be available.

We will be leaving school at 9.15am and returning to school at approximately 12.30pm.  Pupils must be in school at the normal time of 8.45am and must be in full school uniform.  Pupils will have lunch as normal on return to school.

Attendance on this trip will be strictly on a first come first served basis and is dependent on good behaviour and attendance.  Once payment is made we are unable to return any money if for any reason a student changes their mind.

If the school is unable to allow a pupil to attend the visit due to concerns about their behaviour or a decline in school attendance who has previously paid, the parents will be reimbursed for that payment.

We are pleased to inform you that Cardinal Hume Catholic School now has the facility to accept online payments for trips and other school activities.  Using a secure website called ParentPay you are able to pay online using your credit or debit card.  This can be accessed from the School website and you will by now, have received your ParentPay log in.  If you are unable to locate this, please contact the school office for assistance.
