As the final week before half term approaches, I would like to highlight some of our key successes this week.
Firstly it was incredible that 60-70 Year 11 students attended both Saturday and Sunday revision sessions for their RE examination. This intervention, along with the sessions we delivered this week put students in a really positive place for their first exam. Students came out very happy with the paper and I am sure this has helped relieve some of their anxieties for future examinations.

As I write this students are sitting their first Chemistry exam. This weekend we are opening the school again on both Saturday and Sunday, with a focus on either English or Maths. Students will be exposed to some great seminar style teaching and exam practice. We encourage all Year 11 parents to support us in getting their child into these sessions. Next week is very busy with large core exams in Literature, Geography, Physics, Textiles and Media. We wish all students every success as they go into week two.

I am pleased to have met many Year 9 parents at the consultation evening and that parents like the new style of parents subject consultations. As always we will be reviewing and publishing the findings of our parental questionnaires and the actions we will take as a result of this.

Our Year 10 students go into week two of work experience next week. Students have secured some amazing placements including solicitors, banks, nursery and primary schools, retail and offices. It was a pleasure to talk to Shamaya who is at Rushey Green School but returned to support our Year 9 parents evening. She was telling me how she is loving working at the school and wants to be a primary school teacher. It is these stories that will create everlasting memories but will also inspire students to aim for their chosen careers, whatever this may be!

Finally well done to Conisborough for a third place finish in the Lewisham Schools athletics finals held last week. There were some fantastic individual achievements.

This is a reminder that we are currently reviewing our behaviour policy. This will include a sanction reward ladder so that it is very clear and consistent to students, parents and staff what particular rewards and sanctions can be expected. We will be utilising Saturday detention more and will also be ensuring our onsite exclusion is followed up by formal return to school interviews with parents. Excellent behaviour comes both from consistent application of rules and procedures by all staff and leaders, as well as developing great and engaging teaching.
