Echo School Awards 2017
In case you have not yet seen the good news we have been fortunate enough to be nominated for four awards in this year’s Echo School Awards.
The four categories are:
Support Staff of the Year - Mrs. Lynn Hughes (Science Technician)
Mrs. Hughes has become integral in supporting students from our primary schools in the workshops she has created and led. Lynn has worked with all years from reception to year 6. This has been a great help to the students who are transitioning into "big school" as it’s always great to see a face you already recognise!
Class of the Year
Our Business Studies class have been recognised for their incredible efforts particularly during the Christmas period, creating and delivering hampers to our local community as well as a literal bus full of items to the Whitechapel Centre. They have worked together to really stand out in every aspect of school life, whether it be through fundraising, campaigning, excellence or simply helping to make their school a better place.
School Communications Award
We at Gateacre recognise the importance of communication with the entire school community - students, parents and staff - as well as with the wider community and we are delighted to have been shortlisted for this award. We provide our parents and students with the information they need, in ways which meet their needs and preferences, using multiple channels of communication and we have developed our services in response to their specific needs. This award recognizes our innovative commitment to delivering high standards of customer service excellence and our use of many communication platforms: social media, school website, newsletters and our innovative Parent app MyEd.
And finally, much to my shock and slight embarrassment…
Head Teacher of the Year- Mr. J Roberts
For an outstanding school leader, whose guidance and leadership has helped create a dynamic learning environment, where the students are happy and encouraged to reach their full potential.
Of course we are all very proud of what we have achieved so far this year and clearly the recognition through the nomination in each of the categories is equally humbling as it brings home the importance of our work here in preparing your children for their future and developing young people to become responsible adults.
Rosemary helps pupils recall information and do better in exams
A recent BBC news story noted that health food shops have recent had a surge in the sales of rosemary as research suggests that the herb helps pupils perform better in exams.
The research from Northumbria University, presented at the British Psychological Society's annual conference, backed up historical associations between rosemary and memory.
It suggested that pupils who worked in a classroom with the aroma of rosemary oil achieved 5% to 7% better results in memory tests.
Researcher Mark Moss said the human sense of smell was highly sensitive and sent messages to the brain, setting off reactions and responses.
The full story can be found on the BBC website here:
Parents' Invitation to a modern day adaptation of Romeo & Juliet
This week our Year 7 students watched a play called Ro & Jules by D Street Media, a modern day adaptation of Romeo and Juliet.
The play, although humorous, looked at many serious and important issues that the young people of today have to deal with, issues such as peer pressure, gangs, anti-social behaviour, racism, consequences and most prominently sexting.
Because of the serious message the play delivered, we would like to invite our parents and carers to a 40 minute performance at 4pm on Wednesday 7th June.
If you would like to attend this free performance of #Ro&Jules please register your interest by email to email@example.com
