7 April 2022

Dear Parents/Carers,


As you are aware, your child has been attending choir rehearsals each week in preparation for our performance at the Young Voices event on Wednesday 27th April 2022.


Information about the day:

Children will need to come to school as normal on this day, wearing their school uniform. We will then be leaving school at around 12pm to travel to Sheffield Arena. Children will have their lunch at school first before we leave. Please ensure all children are wearing trousers/leggings on this day as they will be wearing their Young Voices t-shirt for the concert.


Once we arrive at the arena, the children will find their seats and take part in a full rehearsal for the rest of the afternoon. The children will need to bring a packed tea and drink to have after this rehearsal so please ensure you pack some food and water in a labelled plastic bag (so it can be disposed of easily- please no lunchboxes/fizzy pop).


Unfortunately, there are no more tickets available through school for the concert however, Young Voices have advised the Box Office might have some returned tickets if you are still wanting to come. These can be found at: www.utilitaarenasheffield.co.uk/event/young-voices-2022-wed27april or by calling 0114 256 5656


If you bought tickets through school, please pick them up from the Main Office by Monday 25th April at 4pm. You will be required to sign for them and be responsible for them once you’ve received them.


Any parents/carers who are coming to watch the performance will need to be in their seats for 6.30pm as all schools will get a ‘shout out’ so you can see where the children are sat. The concert officially starts at 7pm and finishes at 8.45pm. It can take a long time to get through the security at Sheffield Arena so we advise that you arrive in plenty of time.


As I’m sure you can appreciate, there will be thousands of children and parents at this event and it would be unmanageable to arrange a meeting point after the concert. Therefore, following advice from Young Voices, we have agreed that all children- even if their parents have attended the event- are to travel back to school on our minibuses.


We aim to be back at school for 10.15pm however this is traffic dependent so we will keep all parents informed by text if there are any changes. Please ensure you are there to pick your child up promptly when we return to school. Any parents that are attending the concert and travelling via public transport will need to provide an extra contact number for someone who lives close by in case of any delays to the public transport. Please give this information to the office when you pick up your tickets.


If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to come and speak to me.


Thank you for your continued support,

Mrs Brook

Assistant Headteacher
