MESSAGE FOR PARENTS FROM TORBAY COUNCIL:
Are you worried about losing your home?
Anyone can find themselves homeless and knowing you may not have somewhere to live can be a scary time.
The first step is to ask for help and Torbay Council’s website has lots of information and contact details of charities and organisations that can support you in working out the next best steps.
If you are worried that you won’t be able to pay your rent or mortgage, or have found yourself living with family or friends, there is help out there.
You may have found yourself in a situation where your relationship with your family has broken down and you have had to leave, or your Landlord has served you with an eviction notice, the sooner you ask for help the better.
To see what support there is and who can provide you with advice visit: www.torbay.gov.uk/worried-you-might-lose-your-home/
Message about Year 7 and Year 9 school photographs
Year 7 and Year 9 students who had their photograph taken recently by Fizz Photography have been given an order form to bring home.
We ask that, wherever possible, orders are made online directly to the photography company rather than by handing in a completed form and payment to our reception office as this is much more efficient and will also reduce the risk of coronavirus transmission. Details of how to do this are on the order form. If parents would like to make separate orders, we ask that the online ordering information is shared between them. If this is not possible, please contact our reception office who will assist you.
Online orders must be made by Friday 23 October.
If you are handing in an order to the reception office this must be done by Thursday 22 October, as Friday 23 October is a non-student day.
We have a dedicated page on this website for information about Coronavirus / Covid 19: https://www.thespirescollege.com/about/coronavirus-covid-19
