Welcome to St. George’s School

NEWSFLASH
1st April 2014

 

As promised a full update to accompany the exciting new changes ahead.

The timing of this could not have been better and the wait will have been worth it.  We have officially become St. George’s School, A Church of England Academy as of 1st April 2014.

We are the first school to join Cidari Multi-Academy Trust.  We have welcomed our Chief Executive of the Trust to school today, Mr Alan Davies who is an exceptional and well known National Schools Leader and Executive Headteacher of Great Sankey School Warrington.  He has also been Executive Headteacher of Bishop Rawtrone School and is well regarded by the Department of Education.

Along with the change of status and the support of such a renowned leader the school will now be able to transform itself even further in becoming a provider of outstanding education across all areas.  We have also received the official handover of our £600,000 Library and Learning Space to enhance what we deliver.

As we look forward to Easter and the Resurrection we are about to embark on an exciting period of St. George’s School transformation.

We will be hosting Review Day on Thursday 3rd April 2014 and breaking up for the Easter Holidays on the same day.  Pupils will be expected to attend for their appointment times only on that day.  When we return we will be welcoming the Bishop of Blackburn Right Reverend Julian Henderson to open the new Learning Hub and Academy officially.  This week will also host St. George’s Week, year 11 Graduation Breakfast and School Council Ball.

I am extremely proud that we have reached this point as a school.  Blackpool has been receiving the wrong sort of press over the last months and I intend to correct the balance.  We educate a thousand bright, talented, joyous, enthusiastic, polite and determined young people every day.  We are extremely proud of them and all of our staff in turning St. George’s School into the best it can possibly be.

Something for us and Blackpool to be proud of.

Mr Berry.

Headteacher

Another great year for Accelerated Reader!


IMG_2609

Pupils in year 7 have celebrated their successes in literacy and Accelerated Reader.

Certificates, star badges and Easter eggs were awarded to those students who have made significant improvement in their reading and spelling assessments. These were awarded in a special assembly.

All pupils in year 7 and groups from years 8 and 9 have timetabled Accelerated Reader and literacy lessons.

 Accelerated Reader is a reading programme which aims to build a lifelong love of reading in every student.

 Student’s reading levels are identified through assessments three times a year. Results are individually recorded on computer. This allows them to choose books at the right level for their individual needs. Once they have read a book, they complete an on-line quiz, which provides instant feedback and they can instantly see their progress.

Year 11 Peer Mentors

Pupils in year 11 can now apply to be peer mentors and support younger pupils with reading and maths.  The sessions run during form time which means pupils are not missing lessons.  This type of activity allows our older students to develop their communication, organisation and time management skills.  Our younger pupils boost their literacy and numeracy skills and build confidence as well as having a positive role model in one of our senior students.

This type of activity is also a good thing for our year 11 pupils to highlight on applications and CVs.
