Dear parents, following our ‘meet the tutor’ evenings, hopefully you all now have SLG log ons, which are allowing you to see and monitor the homework your child is being set.
As a school, we are currently not using the ‘handed in’ date and ‘comments’ field – and as a result of this, it has come to our attention that once the due date for a piece of homework has passed, this is showing as ‘homework not handed in’ even if the child has handed in their work on time.
For the time being, whilst we further develop this system of recording and monitoring homework through SLG, please ignore this message. If a student misses a homework deadline, a note will be recorded in their student diary and if this happens more than once, contact will of course be made with home.
On Friday 11th September, all of Year 12 attended the Independent Learning Conference run by Chloe Mills of The Life Skills Company. Harry Bull shares his reflections of the day:
What did we learn?
How to effectively double our reading speeds with new techniques and we were also taught valuable study skills including note taking which we could use to become a more efficient learner. The conference also helped us develop our time management and presentation skills which are invaluable to our studies. A fellow Year 12 student said “ I learned three simple steps for each of my subjects to help me progress in my studying; some of these were skim reading, note taking and time management. This has helped me and I now feel more confident about my English coursework as well as other lessons.”
Students and teachers alike came to school on Friday 19th September wearing jeans as a sign of their support for the Jeans 4 Genes charity. A staggering £855.22 was raised which, as you can see,was celebrated by all year groups at the total count up at the end of the day. Lots of students generously gave more than £1, with Yi Ming Wang offering an amazing £20 to the cause!
