Dear Parent

I am writing to inform you that your child has been selected to represent the school at the forthcoming UK Mathematics Trust Maths Challenge Final at McMillan Academy in Middlesbrough on Tuesday 26th April 2016.

The UKMT has been running this competition since 2003 and combines mathematical, communication and teamwork skills, offering pupils another way to express and develop their enjoyment of mathematics. As you may be aware, we reached the national finals of this event held in London last year. In order to promote the event, local media may be invited to come along and report on the day, so I would be grateful if you could give permission for your child to be photographed or filmed if asked or if part of the winning Regional Team.

Pupils will leave school at 9am in a school minibus driven by myself and will return to school at approximately 3pm. A packed lunch and a drink for the day will be provided. A full risk assessment has been undertaken by the group leaders. The trip will be subject to the conditions as set out in the Parent Contract, and will be covered by the school’s insurance policy. Please ensure if your child suffers from asthma or severe allergic reactions their inhaler/medication/epipen is in school, if they do not have them, they will be unable to go on the trip. Pupils are not allowed to bring any personal items such as personal stereos, mobile phones or cameras. We endeavour to take photographs on as many school trips as possible, please visit our website, facebook and twitter pages to view a selection of photographs.

Yours faithfully

Mr I Palmer

Head of Maths
