A HUGE WELL DONE TO YEAR 8!

 

A huge well done to year 8 who have raised £842.11 for the charity 'Read for Good'. Throughout the month of November many of the year group were busy reading and collecting sponsorship money so that children who are receiving treatment in hospital can be provided with books and visits from storytellers. It is pleasing to see our students working outside of the classroom to help others and enhance their love of reading at the same time. All this hard work also counts towards year 8 Graduation and helps our students to understand the benefits of being a responsible and compassionate member of our school community. A fantastic achievement year 8 – very well done indeed!

 


 

 

CHRISTMAS MESSAGE FROM THE PRINCIPAL

 

Dear Parents and Carers,

 

As we get closer to the holiday break, I wanted to write and to wish you all a happy and safe Christmas and New Year, and at a time for catching up with friends and family, to share some personal news of my own.

 

After seventeen very happy years as Head of School and Principal at George Spencer Academy, I have decided to take retirement from August 2019. In my time at George Spencer I have seen the school become an academy, achieve two 'outstanding' judgements from Ofsted, and be recognised as a truly 'world class' school.

 

Our colleagues in our Teaching School, subject Hubs and the Spencer Academies Trust have flourished, and it has been particularly meaningful for me to support the training of hundreds of new teaching colleagues in my time here.

INSIGHT

  

There will be a few changes this year with regards to data and access to information about your child's performance in school.

 

Over the last two terms we have been trialing the use of a piece of software called 'Insight'. This has been evaluated by members of our Parents' Forum and modified to cater for the suggestions they made before being rolled out to a number of year groups as a method for booking Parents Evenings. Our intention was to start the new school year with access to Insight for all families. Unfortunately, you may be aware, that we fell victim to a cyber-attack in July and, as a result, much of our data and information systems were frozen. We can reassure you that none of our data was lost and the integrity of our systems and security has been evaluated externally by internationally recognised organisations and was declared to be more than adequate for a school of this size.
