PARENTAL BULLETIN - OCTOBER HALF TERM 2018

 

George Spencer Academy has now just about recovered from the cyberattack which froze a huge amount of our data at the end of the previous term, and we are indebted to the efforts of our support staff who have worked long hours restocking our systems and recovering our efficiency and functionality. Parents are thanked for their patience in waiting for progress updates, particularly for the current Year 11. We are now launching 'INSIGHT' (a strand of our PARS database system) which will revolutionise how you access information about your child's progress and arrange appointments for Progress Evenings this year. Access information is being distributed this week.

 

Our Parents' Forum meets each half term, and you are very welcome to attend in the Conference Centre, and air your views on the main agenda item:

 

Wed 7th November 6pm – Quality Assurance of Teaching & Learning at GSA

Wed 30th January 2019 - TBC

 

With the weather turning colder, may we remind you that all students in Years 7 – 11 should wear a plain black coat over their blazer (not instead of) during the next few months. Our Uniform Expectations remain as high as always, and please check the Student Planner if in any doubt.

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.
