Prison me no way !

On Tuesday 18th October Year 8 took part is Curriculum Enrichment Day.
Prison me no way!  is a great interactive day. The students are able to participate in a range of workshops.
I visited all of the sessions and the students were so engaged and really participating fully. They were asking lots of questions and really interested.  Some the sessions were linked to the dangers of knife crime, life in prison (including being inside a mock cell), a workshop by a former prisoner about consequences of the choices we make. The British transport police also did a workshop linked to railway safety and there was also a workshop based around antisocial behaviour. 

Here are some pictures of the young people throughout the day in the different sessions.

Attendance Targets


All students have now been set a minimum and aspirational target, this is now in their planners in the form of a sticker. This will be monitored closely at all times, should there be any concerns, you will be invited to come in to discuss what support we can offer to improve your child's attendance.

Your child will be eligible to a trip to Thorpe Park as a reward for reaching their attendance target. Please continue to support your child to attend school regularly and on time. Thank you for your ongoing support.
