The focus of staff this week has been on looking at student progress. Year 7 students’ first Parents Evening was an opportunity to discuss in detail how the students have settled in. The Year 11 mock exams results were also shared with students and we now look forward to meeting with parents on the November 10th. We use the data collected to make sure that individual students are making the correct levels of progress and put in place extra measures when this is not the case. We enjoy the strong relationships we have with parents, as there is no doubt that a good school/home partnership enables students to make much more progress. We value your input and the further work you do at home to support your child’s learning.
Also this week, the Secondary students attended a very moving and powerful assembly for Remembrance Day. The UK Defence Attaché in Vietnam, Group Captain Tim Below and Staff Sergeant Rab Durrant from the British Embassy came to speak to the students about why it is important to remember the people all over the world, who have died in wars. Year 8 will be selling poppies this week which we will wear as a symbol of the soldiers who have died. This is a tradition that happens every year in the UK!
To finish this week, the Secondary students are attending a Halloween disco. I look forward to seeing the photos next week!
