We welcomed our new NQTs to Willow Dene yesterday for the start of their induction programme. It was an opportunity for NQTs to meet their peers who will be working across our schools, and to gain an insight into our approach to teaching and learning.
The Summer term is proving to be another busy term for us here at Willow Dene! With so much going on it was hard to choose what to share! Have a read below to find out what the second half of the Summer term has in store for us and what we have already managed to squeeze into this busy final term!
The Summer term has been incredibly busy at South Rise. There has been a particular focus on outdoor learning with two school journeys over the last few weeks and a range of other trips and activities.
Yesterday, school leaders, trustees and governors from across four Greenwich multi-academy trusts (Compass, Inspire, Endeavour and Maritime,) came together to reflect on the power of partnership and how schools can work together to ensure that they are providing the best outcomes for the young people and communities that they serve.
We are truly delighted to announce that Alderwood Primary School has been awarded the national Early Years Quality Mark.
Art and Design – Whole-School Values Project
We have been working on a whole-school project, inspired by our school values, which gave children from reception to year 6 the opportunity to explore the values (kindness, honesty, trust, determination, resilience, respect, equality, freedom, excellence, confidence, courage and responsibility) in a creative, artistic way.
It’s the start of the Summer Term – the school year seems to be racing by! So it is good time to reflect on some of the achievements of the Spring Term at Deansfield.
The Spring Term was packed full of great learning experiences for the children here at Alderwood. In fact, it was hard to know what to include in this first Compass School Focus article! Please take a look below to see what we’ve been up to since January.
We hosted a very successful open day today to give future teachers the chance to hear about life in our seven schools and to see if Compass is a group in which they would like to work and develop.
Last week our Digital Learning Strategic Team attended the Apple Education Leadership Summit at ‘The Crystal’ building. As a team we have been working closely with both Apple and Jigsaw for the past eighteen months to establish our strategic plan and direction for digital technology and learning across our Trust.
