Rudheath Senior Academy Headteacher’s Newsletter
Friday 20 September 2019
Our new minibus has been very busy – shooting around on various trips and visits this week. I hope you’ve all had a good week, we certainly have!
Success for year 11 against Knutsford this week – go Rudheath! It’s great to see so many children taking part in training and matches. Especially on some of the sunny days we have enjoyed this week. Keep it up – teamwork makes the dream work!
Year 8 Visit to Barclays Gadbrook Park
The last of our year 8s have been to Barclays in Gadbrook Park this week, learning about developing good money habits, budgeting and how to avoid fraudsters. Thanks again to Barclays for a great day for all.
Year 7 Visit to Morrisons
The first of the year 7 visits to Morrisons took place on Wednesday. A great opportunity to find out more about another major local employer. Morrisons has been a great friend to the academy and we look forward to more visits there in the next couple of weeks.
We’ve been on Dee 106.3 all through the week. To hear our full podcast will be available on www.dee1063.com Listen out for us! Well done to all who took part.
Year 10 Music Trip to Manchester Metropolitan University
Our year 10 musicians visited Manchester Met University this week and worked on their ensemble skills, playing gamelan, singing acapella and more. Thank you to Miss Pim for organising the trip and to Manchester Met music department for putting on such a brilliant day!
Global Climate Strike
We’ve been joining “Extinction Rebellion” today, raising awareness about climate change and thinking about how we can be the change we want to see in the world. Student democracy in action – a few budding politicians amongst us.
Year 10 Key Stage 4 Strategy Meeting
Our key stage 3 strategy meeting was a great success – thank you to all who attended and to Mrs Morrell and Mr Wright for organising the evening for us.
Year 11 Parents’ Evening
It was great to see so many of our families at parents evening on Wednesday. Year 11 is such a big year for our learners and a strong relationship between families and school is key to success.
If you were not able to get there, colleagues will be contacting you over the course of the next week to share strengths and areas for development to support your child’s success.
Don’t forget, the school open day will be from 5-8pm on Thursday 26th September. Letters have gone to volunteers in all years to show our visitors around school and showcase the great work they do here. If you have friends and family with children in years 5 and 6 please encourage them to come along and see our school in action.
Have a super weekend.
