Anti-bullying Week, 13th to 17th November 2017

Posted: 1 December 2017

On Monday the 13th November the whole school came in wearing odd socks! What a cheerful colourful day that was!

The theme for this year’s Anti Bullying Week was ‘All Different, All Equal’, staff and students across England wore odd socks to show that it is important to be you and to value differences.

During the week many pupils created cards to show what ‘All Different, All Equal’ means to them. These cards were then threaded on to string to form a garland and are now hanging around the quad.

Also, the week after, students from the Learning Support Department hand printed a section of wall to support the differences and equalities theme.

Thank you to every-one who joined in with activities and helped to raise awareness.

Funds Raised for Children in Need

Posted: 1 December 2017

On Friday the 17th of November, the school raised money for the annual charity event, Children in Need. The fundraising activities were arranged by the Student Voice Team and included; a cake sale, selfie with our very own Pudsey Bear, a treasure hunt and sponge the student voice team. All of the activities were well supported by our students, especially the sponging, and combined with the total raised by the non-uniform day, the school raised an amazing figure of £814.07! I would like to thank everyone who donated cakes, who took part in the treasure hunt , threw water or got wet and of course everyone who got into the spirit of the day with fancy dress, sports and donations.

Children in Need Friday 17th November 2017

Posted: 9 November 2017

As you probably already know, Children in Need is on Friday the 17th of November. All through the week beginning Monday the 13th of November, our Student Voice team are organising a range of activities to raise money for this nationwide event.

From Monday we are running a “Find Pudsey” treasure hunt. There will be prizes for the most  Pudseys found and the tutor group with the most entries. Entries just cost 20p.

We will have our very own Pudsey bear that students will be able to take selfies with for a donation from Wednesday to Friday – if there is a demand he might visit on Tuesday as well!

There will be cake sales on Thursday and Friday outside T2 (please donate cakes if you can).

On Friday 17th students can sponge the student voice team (Y10 area), get face painted spots for 10p a spot (outside T2) and of course a non-uniform day on Friday 17th – wear something spotty! The non-uniform will be one pound as usual. Students can pay their pound from Monday 13th. If you don’t have anything spotty don’t panic, pay for some spots on your face or cut out spots from coloured paper and safety pin them to an old top or pair of trousers!

Can we please ask for you to give your children some extra pennies in the week so that we can raise as much money as possible for this really good cause, and so that they can have as much fun as possible throughout the week!

If you send money to Children in Need via our Academy, every penny goes to Children in Need.  If you make donations via text, you might waste some of that money to your phone provider!  Please support our activities, every penny raised will go to Children in Need.

All activities will be taking place during break and lunch time. There will be no disruption to lessons.  Thank you in advance for your help and support.

Chairperson, Student Voice Team.
