As part of our on-going development we are introducing a new style of report for the end of next week, for years 7,8,10 and 12. They will contain your child’s current grades from the last assessment point, along with a form tutor and Head Of Year comment. Next year, these new reports will run alongside parents' evening, allowing you to have deeper conversations with teachers about your child’s progress data.
Invitation to Young Leaders (age 16-25) to be involved in the Liverpool Cultural Education Partnership (LCEP), June 2018 – March 2020
Background to the Liverpool Cultural Education Partnership (LCEP)
The Liverpool Cultural Education Partnership was established in March 2016 to shape and drive forward Liverpool’s response to the national Cultural Education Challenge. This was launched by Arts Council England in October 2014, asking art and cultural organisations, educational institutions and local authorities to come together to: drive a joined-up art and cultural offer locally; share resources; achieve a more coherent and visible delivery of cultural education through Cultural Education Partnerships. The LCEP is coordinated by a cultural education coordinator (Alice Demba) who is based with the Liverpool Learning Partnership (LLP): http://www.liverpoollearningpartnership.com/.
This week has seen the school achieve its best attending week for some time. This could be for lots of reasons; lots of extra-curricular activities taking place such as dragon boat racing, preparation for plays or even just wanting to perform well in the final assessments of the year.
Pupils in Year 10 today you are officially Year 11, parents and carers of Year 10 pupils you are now parents and carers of a Year 11 child and you have 36 school weeks, 180 days until you sit your first proper GCSE exam.
Your pre-public exams (mocks/Summer AP3) continue week beginning Monday 18th June. Are you ready? Have you started to prepare yourself? Have you begun to organise your revision materials?
Parents of Year 11 and 13 pupils should be aware that the exams have well and truly begun. The vast majority of GCSE exams have moved over to the new 9-1 system, details of which can be found by clicking here for a parent guide if needed.
I am sure you are probably aware that two years ago today (18.05.2016) Gateacre School was inspected by Ofsted which placed the school into Special Measures. The previous Headteacher retired at the end of that academic year and I took over the school from September 2016.
