No smoking in The Know Study Garden from Corinne Walker


There’s been a very strong smell of cigarette smoke coming from the Study Garden, please can staff if they see students smoking tell them that smoking on college premises is not permitted. If staff feel the student needs to be spoken to about smoking please take them to a member of SLT.

Access Arrangements from Karen Bates

Hi all,

The deadline to get all access arrangements in place for the students summer exams was 21st February 2018 and I am still getting requests for assessments. I will of course continue to assess students to let them know their profile of strengths, weaknesses and to give them a diagnosis but we can now no longer guarantee that any new referrals will have access arrangements in place for their summer exams. Even existing referrals that are waiting to be seen may not get their summer exam access arrangements put in place as we are way past the February deadline. Thank you for understanding.

Top Teaching Tip of the Week – RESILIENCE from Julie Maher

With the final run up to the summer examination series a growth mindset is hugely important. We need to build resilient learners. If our students develop a growth mindset it enables us to teach more challenging lessons and gives the students’ the self confidence that they need to work towards success.

The link below has some recognition resources that can be used in lessons to recognise RESILIENCE.
