A Message from our Head Teacher
Dear Parents and Carers,
Welcome to our term 6 newsletter. As we approach the summer break, I would like to share some of the exciting things that have been happening at North Star 240°.
Once again, I have had a steady stream of students bringing me examples of their personal best work. It is lovely to be able to talk to the students about their progress and see the real pride in their work.
Year 11 have now finished their exams and I would like to commend them for their maturity and impeccable behaviour during what can be a stressful time. I look forward to seeing them on August 25th when they can come into school to collect their results. I would like to take this opportunity to wish them all every success in the next stage of their education, employment or training.
Next year’s Year 7 students have been visiting the school as part of their transition and I have been pleased to see how well they have behaved and engaged with the learning and activities that have been in place for them. Moving to secondary school can daunting and so I am looking to our existing students to ensure that they are welcomed and looked after in September.
Term 5 ended with the Jubilee celebrations and, whilst I could not be there in person, it was so positive to see staff and students engaging well and celebrating together
Staff have been engaging in professional learning and on the INSET day in June we had a full day of training from Trauma Informed Schools UK. Staff found this training hugely inspiring and we are currently working on becoming Trauma Informed accredited.
Attendance will continue to be a real focus for us next year as, in order for your child to make progress, they need to be in school and learning. I hope that you and your families have a happy and safe summer break and I look forward to seeing you in September.
