Have your say!

The Department for Education wants to hear from young people, parents & carers to help shape the new RSE (Relationships and Sex Education) curriculum. We need a subject that enables children and young people to develop the essential life skills needed to help them to lead safe, happy and fulfilling lives in the modern world.

NSPCC Number day at Martin High School – Friday 2nd February 2018

Dear parents/ carers, 

NSPCC Number Day is a nationwide math fundraising event for children and young people that helps raise money to support the NSPCC. This year number day is on Friday 2nd February. 

By taking part in Number Day, the money we raise will help the NSPCC protect children in danger and help ensure they have a bright and successful future.

This year at Martin High School, learners will undertake a wide range of challenging and fun math activities in their math lessons. Alongside this, learners are encouraged to contribute £1 towards the NSPCC fundraising campaign in exchange for wearing one item of clothing with a number on it. More information can be found here: https://www.nspcc.org.uk/what-you-can-do/charity-runs-cycles-and-challenges/social-and-special-events/number-day/

E-safety Survey for Parents & Assessment and Reporting

Please visit https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/internetsafetysurvey4parents to help support the Police with their research.

Assessment and reporting

At Martin High School, all learners will be assessed using the GCSE 9-1 criteria. The criteria will also include two ‘Foundation’ grades- F2 and F1 for learners not yet accessing the GCSE pathway.

The new system encourages us as a school, you as parents or carers and the learners to see their learning as a journey. In this journey learners will master the content, knowledge and skills in order to be successful at GCSE and make clear progress term by term.

The first of the new reports on this system are due out on Friday 26th January 2018. For more information see the link below.
