As part of their Ecology and Evolution Topic Year 8 students have been researching the adaptations of animals and plants. Students worked in groups or individually to produce a creative piece of work to present to other students on an animal or plant of their choice. The photos show the wealth of student work; all created as a homework task. Students demonstrated the full range of LORIC skills and excelled in the level of detail of the information produced. Students offered evaluations and again showed their empathy and respect for each other recognising the time, effort, patience, skill and creativity within the work. Thank you to all the parents and carers who supported the students in resourcing their projects. Thank you to the staff who visited the event. Mrs Gamble.

SHAKERS
by John Godber & Jane Thornton.
This amateur production is presented by arrangement with Joseph Weinberger Limited.
All Saints’ would like to congratulate all the 6th form students involved in the 6th wall production of Shakers last Friday evening. Shakers told the story of four waitresses working in a cocktail bar in the 80’s showing the audience it was the place to be for any occasion. As the play unfolded the waitresses gave us an insight into their lives as well as the lives of the colourful characters who came into the bar. It was a highly entertaining evening filled with so many memories from the 80’s.

The awarding bodies have designated Wednesday 26th June 2019 as a “contingency day” for examinations. This is consistent with the qualification regulators’ document Exam system contingency plan: England, Wales and Northern Ireland –

Government Contingency Plan

This will be used if a significant, unexpected event arises nationally or locally during the exam period such that no students (or a large number of them) are able to take an exam when planned. Of course, we all hope there won’t be such disruption and that the contingency day won’t be needed. But students should be available throughout the exam period, including on that day, in case their planned timetable is disrupted.

Dear Parent/Carer,

The health, safety and welfare of your child is of paramount importance to us at All Saints’ Catholic Voluntary Academy. As you will be aware, there has been a great deal of media coverage related to the security of children in schools and guidance as to how to respond in an emergency or potentially threatening situation.
In order to respond to an emergency which poses an immediate threat to both students and staff, we have created a ‘lockdown’ procedure which is designed to warn and ultimately protect staff and students. In particular, the procedure would be used if there is a risk from severe weather or an intruder. Whilst these events are very rare, it is essential that staff and students are made aware of these procedures.
We will be informing students of the procedure during tutor time and there will be a practice scenario or ’lock down drill’ which will take place in due course. Students will be given prior warning before the ‘drill’ takes place.
Please rest assured that we have not received any information to indicate that All Saints’ is at risk from any emerging threat, however it is essential that we take every step to ensure that your child is safe and secure. May I encourage you to discuss this matter with your child to alleviate any concerns that they may have and offer reassurance that this is a necessary and vitally important procedure.
Thank you in anticipation of your support.
Yours sincerely,

R Farrall
Head of School

Once again our wonderful staff and students have stepped up to the plate. Our Lenten fundraiser has got off to a cracking start.
Bishop Patrick noted that a ‘The disciple is someone who is trying each day to move from a ‘me-centred’ relationship with Christ to one that seeks to hear and respond to what Christ may be asking of him/her: ‘Here I am, Lord, I come to do your will’ (Psalm 40).’
All the food collected will be given to our local food bank. Donations are welcome at reception or please see Vicki the School Chaplain.

Dear parents / guardians,

We have been made aware of a disturbing video/game called ‘MOMO’ that has been placed on many websites that children access.

Can we take this opportunity to remind parents to monitor the social media use of their children and discuss what is acceptable content to be viewing.
If you would like any advice about how to place restrictions on the websites that your child can access then please refer to the link below.

Well done to All Saints' student Alicja, who has been volunteering for Be Cancer Safe.
Be Cancer Safe is a one year project to help people in North Derbyshire to recognise early signs of cancer and to visit their GP sooner rather than later. So far the project has over 4000 champions who have pledged to continue important conversations about cancer with friends and family.
Alicja, who volunteers for the Building Resilience Programme, helped the Be Cancer Safe team recruit over 60 new champions in Shirebrook. Locals were invited to come and find out more during a coffee morning in the market place. Other than being a tremendous motivator, Alicja supported with photography, drawing in the crowds as well as Polish translation!
Well Done Alicja.

he All Saints’ 4th Wall drama group auditioned on Wednesday evening at the Mansfield Library for a place in the final of Mansfield Junior Showtime 2019. The students were fantastic representatives for All Saints’. Thirty-four acts auditioned that night alone and the standard of talent was very high. 4th Wall auditioned with a musical tribute to the armed forces titled “THE LAST GOODBYE”. After each group had performed the judges deliberated for 20 minutes before announcing the finalists from the two nights of auditions. 4th Wall were delighted to be the first called, thus securing a place in the final. We would like to thank the parents of the students for coming along and supporting us last night. The Final will take place at The Mansfield Palace Theatre on Saturday 23rd of February.
We wish our students well, or “Break a Leg” as we say in the theatre world.

For the second year running and the second time in All Saints’ history staff took to the stage in the staff school pantomime.
SCROOGED
Members of the All Saints’ Staff have worked very hard every Tuesday evening rehearsing for their pantomime (oh yes they have!!!!!!) with the 4th Wall team. This opened to the public on Thursday 31st of January to rave reviews from students, staff and the public, this lead to a complete sell out for Fridays performance on the 1st of February. Many familiar faces were seen on stage with Mr Hardy the music teacher taking on the role of Scrooge. Mrs Novell (The English department) took on the role of Marley while our very own Head of School, Mrs Farrall played the role of the ghost of Christmas future. Other department staff taking part were Music, Maths, Art, Geography, P.E, the Library, Learning support, I.T, Human Resources, Canteen staff, Chaplin and Members of the Senior Leadership Team.
Quote form a member of staff “ what a fantastic night! Definitely needed this, I haven’t laughed so much in ages!!!!! Well done to all the staff”.
Quote from a member of the public “better tonic than any doctor, laughed so much my ribs ache”.
Quote from a student “Miss Grainger nailed her role as Mrs Cratchit you can tell she teaches us it. Amazing”.

In the event of bad weather, the school may be forced to close to ensure that the safety of our students and staff is not compromised. The decision to close the school will not be taken lightly and will be made as early as possible. We shall post this information on the school website. We shall also send a message via Insight.

We would ask parents who have not registered on Insight to do so as this is the preferred medium the school uses to send reports/letters/messages home to parents. If you have not registered on Insight yet please email admin@allsaints.notts.sch.uk and a member of staff from the ICT Management team will then forward your login details to you.

Radio Mansfield 103.2 FM and BBC Radio Nottingham 103.8 or 95.5 FM will also be informed as early as possible and the closure will be announced on their travel/school closure bulletins. Please listen to one or other of these stations if the weather is bad.

On the evening that the school has been closed an updated messaged will be placed on the school website to provide further information regarding the following day. If the school is open, the website will confirm this.The assumption should always be that school will be open unless the school website and radio state otherwise.

If the school does close then staff will set work for their classes so that students can access work from home via the school’s VLE. Click on the link below and follow the instructions given below:
http://www.allsaints.notts.sch.uk/main.asp?page=75
1. Click on the links to the left (once you are on the website)
2. If the login prompt appears then
3 Enter your full username ie 13student.a@school
4. Enter your school password
5. Check the "Remember my credentials" box
6. Click the "OK" button
In the event of severe deterioration of the weather during the day when the school is in session, we shall liaise with the bus companies about coming to school earlier to ensure that students can get home safely by their normal home time.

Dear Parent/Carer,
At this time of year, many parents feel unsure about how to assist their child as they are preparing for examinations. Therefore, the English and Maths departments are offering a Study Support Workshop where parents and students in Y11 will work together to trial different revision activities. Our aim is to ensure every home is able to fully support their child without the need of subject knowledge.
To allow the support to be implemented in the run up to the exams, the session will take place on Wednesday 23rd January 4pm-5.30pm. There will be two 45-minute sessions delivered by staff on practical methods you can ensure the students are revising in a way that will support their progress.Although it is being led by the English and Maths departments, many of the activities you will be shown will be transferable to other subjects. For the sessions to work, a student must attend and be with someone that will be able to support them at home- this does not need to be a parent, but does need to be an adult over 18 years old.
Thank you to those that have already signed up. We currently have over 35 pairs of parents and students attending.
If you have not signed up and would like to attend, please email alderson.d@allsaints.notts.sch.uk with the name of the student and who will be accompanying them. Or phone the school's reception with the same information.
Please also contact the school if you have signed up and can no longer attend to enable us to limit printing costs.
Thank you in advance of your continued support.

Mr Alderson
Head of English

This academic year, the young people in the 6th Form at All Saints’ are being offered the opportunity to take part in the Diocesan pilgrimage to Lourdes. This annual event sees nearly 500 people from across our Diocese journey on a pilgrimage to the shrine of Our Lady in Lourdes, France. It is an incredible opportunity to help serve the sick and less able members of our Diocese, whilst also meeting new people and learning about their faith. In order to help fund the visit, we will be having a Christmas jumper/non-school uniform day on Friday 21 December 2018.

If students wish to come to school in a Christmas jumper/non-school uniform, they will be asked to pay £1, which will be donated to the fund. They should bring £1 with them on Thursday 20 December and hand it to their form tutor.

Please note that all students who have PE on that day must still bring their PE kit along with all other books and equipment, as lessons will be going ahead as usual.

Thank you very much for your kind help and support.

Yours sincerely

On Tuesday 4th December, the All Saints’ Brilliant Book Award Shadowing Group attended the Brilliant Book Award Launch at Mansfield Library. This is an annual award voted for by Key Stage 3 pupils in schools across Nottinghamshire, Nottingham City and Derbyshire.
Pupils participating read all of the shortlisted books, and vote for their favourite title. The event provided students with the opportunity to see the books that have been shortlisted this year and to meet the author Kim Slater who was there to receive her award for winning in 2018 for her book “Seven-Letter Word”. This was the book that our students voted for so it was wonderful for them to get the chance to meet the author and see her receive her award.
Students had the opportunity to purchase Kim Slater’s latest book and to have it signed by her. Kim Slater also talked at length to the students about writing and the where she gets her inspiration.

Year 12 Students Support Local Charity via the National Citizen Service (NCS) Programme

A group of All Saints’ year 12 students are currently taking part in the National Citizen Service autumn programme - www.ncsyes.co.uk

As part of the social action aspect of the programme the students have decided to support Framework - a local charity that delivers housing, health, employment, support and care services to people with a diverse range of needs.

In order to raise awareness of homelessness (which is at its highest since the 1990s!) and money for Framework’s projects the students will be taking part in Framework’s Big Sleep Out at The City Ground, Nottingham on the 24th November.
www.frameworkha.org

The students have created a Facebook page to help promote the good work they are doing:

Members of our Chaplaincy team and chaplaincy form representatives had a fantastic day yesterday at Newark show ground, as they celebrated the official launch of our new ‘Our Lady of Lourdes CMAT. The students met with other teachers and students from our Trust, sang songs and celebrated Mass with Bishop Patrick.

The students also presented Bishop Patrick with our school postcard which they have been working hard on. The postcard will travel around the other schools in our CMAT and we will receive theirs. Thank you to St Joseph’s in Shirebrook for their beautiful postcard. It will take pride of place in out reception.

Today we have celebrated the long service of two members of our support staff. Mrs Scott and Mrs Woolley joined the school in September 1993. Both members of staff have now served the All Saints’ community for 25 years. This is a terrific achievement. We are grateful to Mrs Scott and Mrs Woolley for all of their work over the last 25 years, they have supported staff and students alike, have been professional in their approach to their work and have been fantastic ambassadors for the school.
We thank them for their service so far and look forward to them being at All Saints’ for many years to come!

We have been advised to let parents know that Nottinghamshire County Council uses CCTV cars to enforce parking outside of schools. They visit every school in Nottinghamshire with parking restrictions and they record whilst passing the details of any cars parked illegally. The vehicle owners will receive a Penalty Charge Notice a few days later and many of these have been sent out as a consequence of using the vehicles. Parents are politely reminded not to park on the restrictions outside of the school in any circumstances. These restrictions are in place to provide a safe area outside of the school where the children will gather or cross the road and we ask for your help in keeping this area free of parked vehicles.

Students studying Drama in Years 9, 10 and 11 went to Derby Theatre on Thursday 27th September to see a performance of "Abigail's Party." Prior to the performance students participated in characterisation and script based workshops exploring key themes from the play before having an opportunity to look at the set. The students were an absolute credit to All Saints' both in their engagement in the workshops and maturity and behaviour throughout. A fantastic time was had by all.

Dear Parent/ Carer

We would like to take this opportunity to invite you to “ASPIRE- the All Saints’ Post-16 Information and Resource Event” the school will be hosting on Wednesday 17th October, starting at 6pm and finishing at 7:30 pm. As you are aware, All Saints’ students achieve excellent results and this is due to the support they receive and many of our students wish to continue their Post-16 studies at All Saints’. This event is designed to inform parents/carers about how they can support their child in the lead up to the GCSE examinations and to inform both students and parents about the Post-16 Education options available at All Saints’.

During the evening, different curriculum areas will be providing information, practical tips and copies of resources that will help your child prepare fully for their GCSEs. In addition, all curriculum areas, who offer Post-16 courses, will be available to explain the different specifications, entry requirements and expectations regarding sixth form study at All Saints’. Students will have the opportunity to ask any questions they may have about studying within the sixth form at this event directly to the relevant curriculum area.

Both Miss Flint (Assistant Head teacher) and Mrs Davie (Assistant Head teacher for Sixth Form) will be speaking about the important decisions our students have in front of them during their GCSE year to ensure they can access their preferred Post-16 option choice.

Parents/Carers who have attended these evenings before have found them very helpful in terms of providing clarity about what their child will be going through during this academic year and how to support their child in terms of securing the next stage of their academic journey.

Yours faithfully

Mrs L Johnson
Deputy Head Teacher

Dear Parents / Carer,

We are happy to share with you that our students have made an excellent start to the new academic year and have returned with a positive attitude to learning. The examination results in the summer showed strong progress, excellent achievement and we exceeded targets set for the Academy. Seeing the students’ success and their smiling faces created joyous days for All Saints’. Many of our Year 11 students have stayed in the 6th form, with the majority of Year 13 students going off to University or the world of work.

As you are aware, All Saints’ Voluntary Academy sets the highest standards for our community and an integral part of this includes student uniform and appearance. We feel it is vital that students look smart and ready to learn. Visitors to our school regularly comment on how exemplary our students look in their uniform and this helps hold our students in high esteem in the local community.

There are two areas we feel it is important to address at this early stage of the academic year. Firstly, in relation to school trousers, the uniform section of the information area on our website clearly outlines our uniform expectations. School trousers should be-:

• Charcoal grey only.
• Trousers should be straight leg or boot cut.
• No drainpipe, fitted tight trousers.
• Trousers should be woven material not jersey/stretchy material.
• No leggings.
• No jeans.

Students should not be wearing trousers that contravene any of the characteristics outlined above and from 1st October, sanctions will be given to any student failing to meet these expectations.

Secondly, we would like to reiterate the expectations regarding make-up. Students in Years 7-9 should not have any make-up on at all. In Years 10-11, make-up may be worn discreetly, meaning that if it is obvious that a student is wearing make-up, this would be considered an excessive amount, leading to the student being challenged and sanctioned if the make-up is not removed. These expectations have not changed from the last academic year.

All Saints’ is committed to setting the highest standards in all areas and this includes standards of presentation. We value your support in ensuring students are attired in a manner reflecting a readiness to learn and in compliance with the school’s policies.

I look forward to writing to you in the coming weeks about the excellent contributions and achievements of our students in this first half term.

Yours sincerely,

R. Farrall C. Hutchinson
Head of School Assistant Head of School

Dear Parents/ Guardians


Here you will find the Year 10 Summer Home Learning expectations from each area of the curriculum. This outlines the nature of the tasks that have been set by departments. It is really important that if your child is entering Year 11 in September, they make a strong academic start and the activities outlined here are designed to support your child in being able to do that. Their final GCSE year will be a demanding one and they will be in a better position in terms of coping with the academic demands if they have completed the activities. The activities include a mixture of revision tasks and preparation for future learning. Many thanks in advance for your support.

On Monday 16th July a group of Y8/Y9 students participated in the STEM Challenge at West Nottinghamshire College. Students were selected as a result of their continued hard work and excellent attitude in Science this year.
Students completed three of the challenges including; producing E-Fit photos of two very suspicious suspects; designing, constructing and racing an electric vehicle; diagnosing a "patient" using questioning and medical testing techniques and robotics, whereby students programmed a robot to navigate a series of obstacles.
Finally, students were able to participate in a Q&A with university students asking questions about what life is like at university.
The photos show the students engaged in their activities. They were a credit to themselves and the school; they were polite to the providers throughout the day, participated fully in every activity and worked well in teams with students from other schools.
In addition, four students achieved awards and trophies. Lily and Taylor won the award for best vehicle group, with the fastest vehicle created on the day. Emily and Eve were in the "best team of the day". They each were awarded a trophy and will take part in the regional final event in Sheffield in December. The school also received a trophy for the cabinet.
Students were given their awards by the Deputy Lord Lieutenant of Nottinghamshire.
Congratulations to everybody who took part.
Thank you to Miss Johnson, Mr Collins, Mr Long, Mr Swinbank and Mrs Stoppard for supporting the trip.

On Wednesday 4 July, 66 Year 10 pupils accompanied by Miss Rodgers, Miss Claymore, Miss Jarvis and Mr. Naylor spent the day at the Holocaust centre. As part of the visit pupils visited the memorial gardens, the holocaust exhibit in the museum and also listened to the story of a holocaust survivor via a video recording.It was a very interesting and emotional day as pupils reflected on the importance of remembering the Holocaust so that we can prevent future tragedies from occurring. This trip to the Holocaust centre links closely with the visit to Krakow Poland running in February for pupils, where they will get to visit the location of the most famous concentration camp Auschwitz Birkenau and further their understanding of this tragedy.

Dear Parent / Guardian,

I am writing to inform you about a change to the structure of pastoral system at All Saints’ Catholic Voluntary Academy for the upcoming year. The school currently has a Vertical Tutoring system, where students from Year 7 to 11 are housed together within an individual tutor group. Next year the school will be introducing a Horizontal Tutoring system, where students are in a tutor group with students solely from their own year group. We feel as a school that this change will enable students to have better quality, differentiated support within tutor time and the change in structure will allow students to have provision that better meets their personal, social, spiritual, emotional and academic needs. On the school website there is an overview of the reasons why All Saints’ has chosen to adapt the pastoral tutoring structure and an outline of what the changes will mean on a day-to-day basis for our students. It is important to note that Sixth Form students in Years 12 and 13 will not be affected by the change in pastoral system and their tutor provision will remain unchanged.

The changes outlined in the school website communication have been very carefully considered and stem from a desire to improve our already strong pastoral provision that was highly commended only last calendar year by OFSTED inspectors. Horizontal tutoring will mean a restructuring of how tutors, pastoral leaders, the Senior Leadership Team and support staff are utilised during tutor time to enhance the quality and relevance of provision for students in the modern school environment.

Vertical tutoring has worked well for All Saints’ in recent years but a range of reasons have resulted in a need for the school to review the current pastoral provision and investigate ways in which we can give our students the best possible deal in keeping with the ethos of providing the best education and care we can for all members of our Living Faith community. I hope that after having read the information on the school website, you will see how the changes, starting next academic year, will improve the quality of support your child receives even further. I must stress that the current House system will still be an important part of the new Horizontal Tutoring system, which will work alongside the organisation of our students into year based tutor groups.

If you have any questions regarding the changes to a Horizontal Tutoring system, which are not addressed by the information on the school website, then please feel free to contact your child’s tutor, Head of House or a member of the Senior Leadership Team. May I express my gratitude in advance for your reading of this information and your continued support for the school, which helps make All Saints’ a fantastic learning community.

Dear Parent

Additional school funding could be available for your child to help support their education. If your child meets any of the criteria below, please help us to maximise funding the school receives by acting now.

Children eligible for free school meals
If your child is eligible for free school meals or has been in the last 6 years this will generate pupil premium funding for your child’s school. To be eligible for free school meals you must be in receipt of the appropriate benefits and have submitted an application for free school meals to the Local Authority Benefits Team.
If you qualify for the appropriate benefits but have chosen not to apply for free school meals, please consider applying. You do not have to take up the free school meal to attract the funding for your child’s school. Free school meals cannot be backdated so you should only apply if you currently qualify.

Children that are adopted or leave care under a Special Guardianship Order or a Residence Order
Schools in England can receive the Pupil Premium for children adopted from care, or who left care under a Special Guardianship Order on or after 30 December 2005. School can also claim for children who left care under a Residence Order on or after 14 October 1991.
It is up to those with parental responsibility to decide if they wish the school to know whether their child is adopted, or is under a special guardianship order or residence order. If you would like to enable us to claim this premium, you will need to inform us about your child and provide supporting evidence, for example, provide the original Adoption (Court) Order.

Children with parents or carers in the armed forces
Schools receive extra funding to support children and young people with parents or carers in the armed forces. Pupils attract the funding if they meet the following criteria:
• One of their parents/carers is serving in the regular armed forces
• One of their parents/carers served in the regular armed forces in the last 6 years
• One of their parents/carers died while serving in the armed forces and the pupil is in receipt of a pension under the Armed Forces Compensation Scheme (AFCS) and the War Pensions Scheme (WPS).
If your child meets one of the above criteria, please let us know as this will enable us to claim this additional funding.

Thank you in anticipation of your support.

Yours sincerely

P Greig
Headteacher

Dear Parents/ Carers
I would like to begin by thanking you for the support you have given our Year 11 students and the school throughout this academic year. The exam season will begin in earnest on Monday 14th May and this will be an intense, but exciting time for both students and staff so your continued support is much appreciated.
In order to support your child with their GCSE examinations, I have produced the attached document, “Revision and Exam Timetable”; students will receive a paper copy of this document which explains where breakfast revision, timetabled revision, exams and afterschool revision sessions will be taking place throughout the exam season. Please encourage your child to attend as many before and after-school sessions as they can, so they are fully prepared for each examination they sit. Personally, I would be placing this document on the fridge or somewhere that is a central point in the household, so everyone knows which examinations are coming up and how your child’s study across the week needs to be distributed.
There are a number of resources, via the Pixl Apps for Maths, English, Geography and History that students can access; the school’s VLE contains a range of resources (particularly exam questions) and each student will have their exercise books and the revision resources they have produced throughout their Key Stage Four studies.
Your child does need to be prioritising their revision but they will also need to be encouraged to balance this with breaks. Self-care is going to be very important throughout this period as the exam season is long and demanding. It is absolutely natural for your child to be worried or anxious about their upcoming examinations and results; at school we have encouraged students to try and reframe that narrative so they start to look forward to their exams and build up their self-belief so any way this can be reinforced at home would be fantastic. Checking your child is getting a decent night’s sleep before their exams, a good and healthy breakfast on the day of their exam, and that their routine remains regular is crucial throughout this exam period.
Recently, I have had the privilege of seeing some of the recent art work produced by students who have already taken part of their art exam; as well as examining the projects produced by students in Textiles and Resistant Materials (pieces which will form part of your child’s coursework submission) and hear about a number of the successful speaking exams that make up 25% of your child’s Modern Foreign Language qualification. It is wonderful to see the range of talent across the year group and I know the majority of our students are working incredibly hard in the preparation for their examinations. As the exam season lasts up to six weeks for some of our students, praising their continued efforts will be very important for their confidence and stamina, so please help us to do this by acknowledging the efforts your child is going to as they prepare and take their examinations.
Again, thank you for all of your support in terms of getting our Year 11 students ready for their GCSES.
Yours Sincerely
Ms L Johnson

Well done to all who took part in the Year 4 Festival. We were pleased to welcome together our feeder primary schools, St Patrick's, St Josephs Boughton, St Joseph's Shirebrook, St Philip Neri and Holy Trinity to celebrate their gifts and talents. Throughout the day Students in 4 teams competed against each other in handball, rugby, football and basketball to decide who takes home the Year 4 cup. Schools fought hard but in the end their could only be one winner with Holy Trinity taking the victory.

Well done to All Saints' leaders for their planning and organisation on the day, you were all amazing and did All Saints' proud.

3All of the places for Year 7 in September 2018 have now been offered and accepted, Unfortunately, we are unable to offer any addtional places. We do realise that this will be upsetting news for parents of children who have not been offered a place. Should a place become available between now and the end of the school term we shall go back to our waiting list and the place will be offered to the next child on the waiting list which has been devised according to the school's admissions oversubscription criteria.

If parents wish to appeal the letter of appeal, together with any other information which parents wish to provide, should be sent to Lesley Buet, All Saints' Catholic Academy, Broomhill Lane, Mansfield NG19 6BW by Tuesday 8 May 2018. All letters of appeal will be acknowledged, if you do not receive an acknowledgement please contact the school. Please make sure you make clear the name of your child, include their date of birth, your full name and address and contact telephone number. Appeals will then be dealt with by the Diocese.

STEM events in the Science Department
It’s been a busy term in the Science Department. Alongside preparing Y11 and Y13 students for their upcoming exams other year groups have benefitted from a number of STEM related activities.
Year 7 students participated in an event “I’m a Scientist get me out of here!!!” This was an online event where school students meet and interact with scientists; an X Factor-style competition between scientists, where students are the judges. Students challenged the scientists over fast-paced online text-based live CHATs. They asked the scientists anything they wanted, voting for their favourite scientist to win a prize of £500. Of special mention is Patryk Owczarczyk (C-AWN) – who was awarded "best question of the day" - he will receive a certificate as recognition of this achievement. Thank you to Mr Hall for organising this event.
Year 8 students experienced a visit from a STEM ambassador. STEM Ambassadors are volunteers from a wide range of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) related jobs and disciplines across the UK. They offer their time and enthusiasm to help bring STEM subjects to life and demonstrate the value of them in life and careers. The topic of discussion was engineering, detailing the importance of trialing and testing methods to ensure comfort, speed and safety in train design. Thank you to the DT dept for their support with this event.
After the success of the 6th Form Biology Olympiad, Year 8, Year 9 and Year 10 students were also given the opportunity to take part in a similar competition; the Biology Challenge. The Biology Challenge is open to students aged 12-15 years old. The competition consisted of two, twenty-five-minute multiple choice papers taken online under exam conditions. Questions are based on the school curriculum, but the competition also rewards those students whose knowledge of the subject has been increased by reading books and magazines or watching natural history programmes. Notable achievements included Ebony Elsey, Jakub Ulik, Sam Molyneaux and Kamil Bujko who completed all questions and achieved over 70% correct responses. Well done to everyone involved and thank you to Miss Parry for organising this event.
Finally, a small number of Year 10 students attended a Medical Careers Workshop at Vision West Nottinghamshire College. Students were able to meet first year medical students and share hints and tips on getting into medical school. In addition, everyone took part in a number of workshops including diagnosis using oximeters and stethoscopes, medical ethics, resuscitation and CPR and finally prosthetics. Thank you to Mr Holt and Mr Collins for supporting this event.

There was snow way we weren’t going to celebrate World Book Day!
Today our classrooms were filled with a colourful selection of characters including a boy in stripy pyjamas, Matilda and Hagrid! They were taught by a Handmaiden, Sherlock Holmes and Alice in Wonderland – to name a few! There were some fantastic costumes! Well done to everyone who got involved.
To celebrate the event as a whole school, every lesson during the day began with the teacher sharing part of a story. As the students progressed through their day they were able to gather more information about the characters and plot. During their last lesson, pupils were given the opportunity to discuss how they thought the story might end. They were then told the final part of the story to see how many of them managed to guess correctly. KS3 students also took part in DEAR (Drop Everything And Read) during period 5.
A Book Swap event was held during lunch time to give pupils the opportunity to swap a book they had read for another book and a book themed quiz took place during Tutor Time.

The following students won prizes for their fantastic costumes: Bailey Millard, Holly Hughes, Evan Armstrong and Job McGuire. Well done to all the students who came to school dressed as their favourite character!
The prize for the best dressed member of staff went to Mr Smith who was dressed as Gandalf - he looked absolutely fantastic!

It has been a wonderful day and an opportunity for us all to celebrate our love of books and reading!

On Thursday 22 March, 168 Y10 students from All Saints’ took part in the Mock Interview Day at The Civic Centre in Mansfield. This event is part of the students’ world of work programme. Prior to the event students had to select a job to apply for from the ‘Job News’ sheet, they then had to write a letter of application and complete an application form. Students walked to the Civic Centre where they had a 20 minute interview with an employer from the local business community. Over 19 organisations very kindly allowed their staff to take part in the interviews and we are indebted to them for their support, without them we could not have run this event. Students received feedback on the day from their interviewer but they have also received their feedback sheet today which we hope they will use in the future to support them when applying for sixth form, college courses or apprenticeships.

Our students were a credit to themselves, their families and school. All of the employers commented on how smart, polite and well-mannered the students were. Well done Year 10!

On Tuesday 20 March, 6 Y11 boys from All Saints’ Catholic Academy in Mansfield went to the Pendragon training Academy for a workshop specially designed for them ‘, the next steps’. Andrew Harrison, Technical Training Programme Leader at Pendragon, delivered the event. The boys were involved in a number of tasks enabling them to look at where they were now and where they saw themselves in the future. He then discussed with them the pathways to their success and how they needed to work hard to get the exam results they need to ‘open all doors’ for them in the future.

The boys had the benefit of hearing about Andrew’s life experiences, he told them how sometimes it helps to have someone other than a parent or teacher helping them to look clearly at the road ahead, encouraging them to get good GCSE results, look at different routes and always to have a Plan B!

The highlight for the lads was the opportunity to look at and sit in the new Jaguar F type which was specially brought into the Pendragon showroom for them.

The morning ended with a lunch kindly provided by Pendragon. This was a great opportunity for the boys to discuss with Andrew their ambitions for the future, what qualifications they will need, information about apprenticeships and how to be ensure that all doors remain open to them after GCSEs enabling them to make the right career choices in the future.

Core Mocks
After returning from half term, Year 11 students sat mock examinations in English and Maths. Teachers have started to give the marks back to students so please ask your child how they performed in the most recent examinations, particularly if your child has improved between the December and February examinations. This is a great opportunity for your child to consider if their current work rate is leading to greater success in their examinations. It is really important that even though those mock examinations have been completed, your child is still spending a good portion of their revision focussed on mastering skills for their English Language, English Literature and Maths examinations. If you have any concerns about the progress of your child in relation to their most recent mock examinations, please do not hesitate to contact their class teacher to find out how you can further support your child.
At this stage in their Year 11 journey, your child should be spending a portion of their evenings and weekends revising for their GCSE examinations. In a recent assembly, students were advised to adopt a revision method called: “Spaced Practice” which is a cycle whereby your child will “learn, forget, relearn, and remember again” in order to strengthen their memory. This process of spaced practice works better than cramming because students are going back to the ten topics they find most troublesome and difficult on a weekly basis; through increased exposure, students will find that ideas and concepts are stored more securely in their long term memory. Please be encouraging and praising your child when you can see that they are working independently in a focussed way towards their GCSE examinations.
Parent and Student Study Skills Workshop.
The English and Maths departments are offering a Study Support Workshop where parents and Y11 students will work together to trial different revision activities. Our aim is to ensure every home is able to fully support their child.
To allow the support to be implemented over the Easter break, the session will take place on Tuesday 27th March from 4pm until 6pm. There will be two 45-minute sessions delivered by staff on practical methods you can ensure the students are revising in a way that will support their progress.

The first 30 Y11 students to return slips will be allocated places. If there is significant interest, we will look to repeat the session in early April. Although it is being led by the English and Maths departments, many of the activities you will be shown will be transferable to other subjects. We hope to see you there, so that we can all work together to support the students at this crucial time of year. Letters are available from your child’s English teacher. You can alternatively reserve a place by emailing the below information to Mr Alderson. (alderson.d@allsaints.notts.sch.uk)
Intervention
Additional interventions sessions are taking place throughout the school week and your child should still be attending those. The final cycle of intervention will begin after Easter and so students will receive a letter indicating the additional sessions that they need to attend.
A number of subjects will also be offering Easter intervention sessions and information about these sessions will be going out to students and parents/ carers towards the end of this week. We are really lucky that so many of our teachers are prepared to come into school over their Easter holidays and provide additional study sessions, so please support your child’s attendance.

Pixl
Since January, our students have had access to the Pixl Apps. These can be accessed for the following subjects: Maths, English Literature, Geography and History. Please encourage your child to be accessing the apps and using them in order to complete revision. If your child gets the bus or a lift to school, this is a great time in the day to access the apps and complete some revision.
In addition, Pixl have put a power point together, providing practical strategies for parents about how you can support your child’s well-being in this demanding period. This can be found here on the school’s website, under General Information, Parent Information, and Support Information.

Time Remaining
As students have less than 30 official school days left before the examination period begins in earnest, it is incredibly important that they are attending every day.

Many thanks for your continued support.

Miss L Johnson
Assistant Head teacher

Congratulations to All Saints' student, Charlie Boyer-White, who was honoured for his bravery at the annual Rotary Club Courage Awards.
Charlie was one of twelve students from the Mansfield area presented with an award for the way they face a variety of day-to-day challenges.
Charlie has an ultra rare genetic condition which effects 1 in 2 million people. It causes constant pain and results in the development of extra bone muscles and tissues which cause joints to fuse and lock, preventing movement.
Despite this Charlie's positive outlook is an inspiration to all who meet him. Charlie's class tutor, Julie Rathbone says "he doesn't let this stop him from enjoying a full life at school. This year he has started his GCSEs, Charlie also sits on the student council, the chaplaincy team and is a commited volunteer".

On Monday 12th March a group of Year 7 pupils had the opportunity to visit Mansfield Library to take part in two writing workshops. The workshops were delivered by the author of the Witchfinder series of books, William Hussey.
The first workshop began with a compelling reading from one of the Witchfinder books and an introduction to the life of a writer. The session then moved on to a fully interactive recreation of a 17th Century Witch Trial where students had the opportunity to dress up and role play characters. The session was both entertaining and informative providing pupils with a wealth of material for their own creative writing.
The second session began with an interactive journey through the writing process. With a few tips of the trade, pupils then came up with their own ideas for a story, which were then developed into a narrative plot driven by a strong main character. During the session pupils discussed how to break the tyranny of the blank page and how to build a plot.
Finally, the pupils were treated to a fun and educational exploration of the Gothic genre, from its origins and its place in literature to core texts and the great writers. The session ended with pupils participating in a Dracula vs Van Helsing Quiz. With appropriate props and costumes, pupils were selected to battle it out, answering entertaining questions about the presentation.
The mixture of horror and mystery ensured that all the pupils where engaged throughout the day and their behavior was impeccable.
If any students would like to order a book by the author, they can do so through Amazon. If they let Mrs Lathall know she will then contact the author and he will send some signed stickers for pupils to put in their copies.

Dear Parents and Carers

I would like to introduce myself to you as the Chief Executive Officer of the new Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Multi Academy Trust. From 1st September 2018 All Saints’ Catholic Academy will be joining together with all the Catholic primary and secondary schools in Nottingham and Nottinghamshire. This new Trust will provide wonderful opportunities for all the schools to share what they do well and address the areas where they are not as successful.

I have been Headteacher at The Becket School in Nottingham for the last six years and prior to that I was Deputy Head at Christ the King School in Arnold, Nottingham. I have worked closely with the Diocesan Education Service to support improvement work at our Catholic primary and secondary schools and have experience of raising standards at both primary and secondary schools.

The most important element of the new Trust is that it is a Catholic organisation, putting the life and teachings of Jesus Christ at the heart of what we do. Our new community will work together to teach the word of God, to inspire our children and young people to live out their faith and to be active participants in a living faith community.

As St Irenaeus said, “The Glory of God is a human being fully alive.” My vision for our new Trust is that all of our children and young adults will be happy, safe and inspired to flourish spiritually, socially and academically so that they can “live life to the full”.
As CEO, I will work closely with the Headteachers to support them in ensuring the very best Catholic educations for your sons and daughters. The Trust will be centralising HR and finance work, so that Headteachers can focus on the most important aspects of school life: the Catholic life of the school and the happiness, safety and progress of all pupils.

Although my role does not officially start until September, I am hoping to visit all 21 schools before then, to get to know staff and meet as many of the children and young people as possible. My visits will be to discuss standards of education with Headteachers and Governors, but also to be part of liturgical celebrations and school events such as concerts, shows and awards evenings. I hope to meet as many of you as possible as well!

Yours faithfully

James McGeachie
CEO designate, Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Multi-Academy Trust

Dear Parents and Carers

Changes to School Holidays

You may be aware that Nottinghamshire recently consulted on proposals to amend school holiday patterns to move to a 5 week summer holiday and a two week half term holiday in the Autumn term.

More than 57% of the 6,300 responses were in favour of the new pattern and the County Council has announced it will be adopted from September 2019. This new pattern will bring county schools in line with city schools.

As academies, we are free to set our own holiday patterns, with the proviso that there are 195 working days, five of which are designated as INSET days. However, as members of the new Our Lady of Lourdes Multi-Academy Trust, I believe that it is important that our schools have the same holiday patterns.

In order to gauge opinion, I asked the headteachers to consult with staff and return a school preference of ‘old’, ‘new’ or ‘no preference’.

The outcomes were:
Old 38% (8 schools)
New 52.5% (11 schools)
No preference 9.5% (2 schools)

Therefore, all schools in the Trust will be moving to the new pattern of holidays for the school year 2019-2020. Next year (2018-19) remains on the old pattern. You can access the details of the new holidays via the Nottinghamshire County Council website.

I realise that there are quite strong feelings about the holiday patterns and the pros and cons of both systems. I hope that you will understand the democratic approach I have taken. Adopting the new structure should ensure that families will not have ‘split holidays’, with all children off at the same time, regardless of which Catholic school they attend.

Yours faithfully

James McGeachie
CEO designate, Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Multi-Academy Trust

To celebrate World Book Day there will be a number of activities taking place in school. All Year 7 pupils (and staff-see photo) are invited to come to school on Thursday 1st March dressed as their favourite book character. We are also asking pupils from all year groups to bring a book they no longer read into school for our World Book Day Book Swap event. Pupils will be able to exchange their book for another one to keep and read. The Book Swap will take place on Thursday 1st March but pupils can bring their books in before the day and leave them in M29. Pupils will also get chance to take part in a Book Quiz during Tutor Time to test their knowledge of a wider range of books.

The Lourdes team completed their sponsored walk this Sunday. They walked the 15 miles to Nottingham in a bid to raise money for their Lourdes pilgrimage, taking place this summer. It was a great effort from the team who were walking in very cold conditions.

Multi Academy Trust update

As we approach our Christmas break it seems like a good time to provide our parents with the most recent update on developments with our new Multi Academy Trust.

Earlier this year the Diocese took the decision that all Catholic Schools in the diocese would join one of four new large Trusts. Therefore, on the 1st September 2018 we will be joining Christ the King, Trinity, Becket and all our Catholic feeder primary schools in one large Multi Academy Trust of 21 schools. The Trust will be named ‘Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Academy Trust’.

There will be a Board of Directors over the whole Trust who will be responsible to the Diocese for the running of the Trust, the quality of education and the finances. The Diocese has appointed Ken Daly (formally Headteacher at All Saints’) to be Chair of Directors and a CEO for the trust will also be appointed.

The next step at the start of 2018 is that a new centralised team will be recruited which will form the ‘business’ side of the Trust. Initially they will handle finance and HR from a central location. A small team is currently considering options for where this team will be based. In addition, a part-time Chaplain will be appointed to oversee the Chaplaincy work across the Trust and each of the 21 schools will pay 5% of their funding to the central team for the centralised services and personnel.

I wish to reassure all our parents that the development and care of our students will remain at the very heart of all that we do and that our staff will continue to give their very best. It is the combination of hard working, talented students, good teachers and supportive parents that make All Saints’ such a good school.

Regards

Mr. Greig
Headteacher
