Friday 14th February 2020 is an Inset Day
We break up for half term on Thursday 13th February (Friday 14th February is an Inset Day) and return to school on Monday 24th February.
Looking for something to do during half term? Somerset County Council has lots of activities to do with the kids this holiday. Check out the list below:
Tuesday 12th November was Careers Day at South Somerset Partnership School and all our students took part in activities to explore the different careers and jobs they could do after leaving school. Year 10 and 11 students also attended the Careers Fair at The Fleet Air Arm Museum and received advice from local employers and training providers. Here are some photos from the day…
Students were asked to design a boat out of 3 cups, 15 straws & sellotape. Coins were dropped into the boat and the winner was the person whose boat held the most coins without sinking.
On Monday 11th November students from our school took part in the Remembrance Day Service in Yeovil.
Staff and students joined members of the public at the cenotaph in the town centre to show their respect for those who have served in both world wars and more recent conflicts around the world.
Students and staff showed their support for Anti-Bullying week by wearing odd socks to school last Friday 15th November.
This was part of the Anti-Bullying Alliance campaign ‘Change starts with us’ and promotes the idea that we are all unique and nobody should be subjected to bullying.
Here are some photos from the day…
Our KS2 students recently visited Montacute House as part of their History topic – the Tudors – through the Thrive approach.
Below is a student totally immersed and happy being in role at Montacute House.
On Monday 18th November our school will be celebrating the Into Film Festival. This is a free, annual, nationwide celebration of film & education for 5-19 year olds and all students will be taking part by going on a visit to the cinema!
Our older students will be going to see “Spider-man -Far From Home” and younger students will be seeing “Bumblebee”.
On Tuesday 19th November we will be holding an Academic Mentoring afternoon.
Time will be set aside during the afternoon for students to meet with their tutor/academic mentor to discuss how the term has gone so far and what they can do to work towards their goals for the rest of the year.
This week is National Anti-Bullying week and the theme is ‘Change Starts With Us’.
“By making small, simple changes, we can break this cycle and create a safe environment for everyone. Because together, we can challenge bullying. Change starts with a conversation. It starts with checking in. It starts with work together.” (Anti Bullying Alliance)
Students and Staff are showing support for this by wearing odd socks to school on Friday 15th November. The idea is to encourage people to express themselves and celebrate their individuality and what makes us all unique!
We warmly welcome Tina Callow to the staff team. Tina has taken up the post of ‘Pastoral Lead Year 11’.
We look forward to working with her.
