Year 10

  • This Academic Year, students are engaging in a comprehensive work experience programme. This includes contacting local employers and arranging 2 weeks of intensive training in a specific chosen field. Relationships with the local and wider community will be built and strengthened upon throughout this time.
  • A crime and punishment Super Learning Day in March will engage students with regards to how tolerance and respect are of key importance to the future of the local community and the influx of Polish students.
  • The Y10 team work closely with Agnes Knabe, Polish interpreter – her skills have been of extreme importance in liaising with Polish parents, in particular at December’s Target Review Day.
  • We have given Polish Y10 students ‘translator lanyards’ to assist other Polish students who struggle in lessons and to help make other British students understand the translating process.
  • 3 assemblies have taken place to assist the transition process for our Polish cohort. These have included a member of the SLT team speaking Polish phrases to dispel myths about the difficulties of other languages and encouraging students to begin the process of learning another language.
  • The Y10 display board contains a list of Polish phrases and numbers for ALL year groups to see.
  • BME and other hard to reach Pupil Premium students are invited to visit Universities and other FE establishments to inspire and engage students from these backgrounds (Nottingham University visit).
  • Y10 students annually collect hamper ingredients for the local community and offer the names of those people who are of most need at Christmas time.
