This week we have been holding a review of our school. This involves visiting lessons, looking at pupils’ work and talking with teachers and pupils. This is an important part of our self-evaluation and allows us to decide where and how improvements can be made. The review continues next week. We are also lucky to have people from outside the school who are joining us to assist in the process; this is very important, and is part of the collaborative approach that regular readers of this blog know we greatly value.
Sports news! Congratulations to our Y8 and Y9 netball teams who both won games against The John Frost School this week. Also to Cai in Y8 who is now a first dan judo black belt, and to Chloe who was runner up in the Wales and West Cechetti (ballet) awards.
On Thursday a Welsh artist, Rhiannon Roberts, came into school to host an art workshop which a number of our pupils were able to enjoy. They produced an excellent piece of work based on our school and our community. Everyone really enjoyed it, and we now have to decide where the finished article is going to go! Here’s a picture of the work in progress; the finished piece looks absolutely amazing!
7KH have knocked 7ED off the top spot for attendance! Well done! 10 CT came a very close second this week. Attendance overall is still up on last year, and the progress we’ve made in this area is a credit to everyone.
No blog next week as it is half term.This marks the mid point of the academic year, but not for Y11 who are nearer the end than maybe some of them realise! Lots of support has been put in place for them, and this will continue over the half term break. There is plenty of revision to do over the week, and in some cases coursework to catch up on.
