TAG Parental Event

The recent parent event (which was ‘by invitation’ with others to follow) focused on supporting some of our TAG students.

There were lots of ideas about how to support student learning at home and some excellent contact points that deal more generally with children’s well-being.

The PowerPoint driving the event can be found below:

Summary of Provision to Date 2016-17

TAG WHOLE-SCHOOL PROVISION

Peer Mentoring

We have a really nice set-up whereby students in upper school who are TAG and Student Leaders are supporting their TAG peers in lower school.

Run by ST and TF, each session is structured as follows:

  1. Brief Starter activity
  2. Peer Mentoring using the GROWER Learning Conversation model
  3. Whole Group Review – ensuring that the agreed actions are specific enough and linked to SMART targets

It really is a very positive vibe – pop in to the Sixth Form area on a Friday during VT if you can.

Sessions are complemented with training and IAG for the mentors from volunteers such as the Chair of the Learning Committee of Governors so it’s a real whole-school effort!

HIGH FIVE #2

As part of our Transition Programme, we offer the HIGH FIVE event – this involves higher attaining students from our local primary schools working with current Y7 students in order to get a flavour of learning at NLS.

With a focus on higher order skills and thinking (Mr Taylor) as well as SBS (Miss Howard), the day is an interactive and engaging one where students also learn to work with peers from other schools who will, in the near future, hopefully becoming their friends at NLS.

Well done all…

Y10 Creative Writing Excellence

Y10 students were given an opportunity to write in the style of the 19th Century author they have studied.

As part of a competition run by Mrs MacLeod, the final judgement fell to a professional writer colleague of hers.

As you can see on the attached, the quality was first class.

Congratulations especially go to Charlotte and Jorge for their winning entries – truly amazing writing!
