I met with Paige, George and Elsie this morning to give them a prize for their excellent speeches on YR6 Parents' evening. I was so impressed with their attitude and the way they spoke in front of such a very large audience.
With the window for options changes closed, it has been nice to see the Year 10 students settling into their new courses. Popping into their classes, it has been lovely to see the students so focused and so many producing some excellent work. To credit this, I will be taking the 'retro' step of re-introducing the traditional gold star!
It is a very simply concept; if I see work into which I feel they have put their all into, I will give them a gold sticker and a thank you. I am hoping this small gesture toward their effort will least make a small part of their day a little bit nicer.

It was lovely to have staff in from Falcon Junior School today to visit the Year 7s and see how they are settling in. The students are always surprised and really pleased to see them.
These links are all part of making the transition as positive for students as possible.

When sorting the data I was very pleased to see that 56% of the whole year Group got an AtL of between 3 and 4 which is excellent, with a further 27% of them achieving an overall AtL of between 2.5 and 2.99.
Well done everyone keep up the good work.
