North Axholme is a Good School North Axholme School was inspected by an Ofsted team led by Tanya Harber Stuart HMI on 10-11 November 2010. The report concluded that North Axholme is a good school with good capacity for sustained improvement and good outcomes for individuals and groups of students. Of the 24 judgements that make up these 3 main conclusions the school is judged good in 21and satisfactory in 2. Student attendance is judged as outstanding. Headteacher, Joe Sellars, said: ‗This is great news for the school but most importantly for our students and parents/carers because they can be confident that a rigorous inspection led by one of Her Majesty‘s Inspectors (HMI) has concluded that we are doing a good job. All my colleagues at North Axholme have worked incredibly hard to continually improve the outcomes for our students and we will certainly continue to do so.‘ Mr Sellars added ‗The inspection team acknowledged the above average attainment and progress of our students. This is confirmed by our record set of results this year when 86% of our students gained 5A* - C grades at GCSE and 49% gained 5A* - C including English and maths. Our value added score is also set to be a record and this is a measure we received national awards for from the Specialist Schools and Academies Trust in 2009.‘ There are many highlights in the report such as: ‗Students are safe and say they feel very safe. They are confident that the very rare incidents of discrimination are dealt with very quickly.‘ ‗The vast majority of parents and carers agree or strongly agree that their children are safe in school.‘ ‗Students are polite, friendly and exhibit good behaviour‘ ‗Given the starting points of the students (who left in 2010) they made good progress during their time at the school.‘ Of particular note is the considerable rise between 2009 and 2010 in the proportion of students achieving an A* C grade in mathematics.‘ We provide….‘a good curriculum and effective links with parents, particularly with parents whose children were in Year 11.‘ ‗Attendance is high‘ ‗The contribution made by students is good. They are given many opportunities to contribute and they do so enthusiastically.‘ ‗The specialist (media arts) status is enhancing the curriculum in both key stages.‘ ‗The school promotes community cohesion well. There has been a concerted effort to engage with other schools to enhance the students‘ understanding of different religions and cultures.‘

Editors Letter.... Happy New Year to all our readers and let's hope you enjoy another year of the Arrow delivered to your door! I'm not sure just what to say this month. As I write this letter for the January edition it is a snowy 2nd December. I can't get out of the house; I seem cut off from the world except for the computer which, at least, ensures that my e-mails still get through! By the time you read this issue of the Arrow we will be reflecting on how we started the count-down to Christmas with snow up to our knees, and still it kept on coming. Probably like me you were wondering just when it would stop. The kids had what seemed to be an early Christmas break, not knowing whether they would return to school before their official holiday. December is usually such a busy month with markets, concerts, events and suchlike. It all happens in December! But this time, Lincoln Christmas market was cancelled, Meadow Hall and the Yorkshire Outlet were closed, Robin Hood airport ground to a halt. Yorkshire was at a standstill. Thinking of the weather, I would like to say a big thank you to everyone who delivers the Arrow, you have all done a tremendous job and delivered in all weathers. I know it was particularly tough delivering the December issue. It is much appreciated by myself and of course our readers. Here is to a prosperous New Year, and don't forget keep your articles coming in and if anyone would like to advertise, please be in touch. Enjoy the read. Best Wishes

The Isle of Axholme

Where You Live

Your Local History

Adapted by Anthony Catherall

THE WESLEYS Samuel Wesley arrived as the Vicar of Epworth on 1697. the district was still in turmoil resulting from the opposition to the drainage. Samuel had a non-conformist tradition. The Act of Uniformity ejected his grandfather from his parish at Charmouth. His father was ejected from his parish at Whitchurch, Devon after being sent to prison for failing to use the Common Prayer Book. However, Samuel came to Epworth holding High Church principals, a deep loyalty to the crown and to the Tory Government of the times as well as high moral principles. The local people had few of these views. In 1702 the Rectory was set on fire and two-thirds burnt to the ground. In 1704 fire destroyed all the Rector‟s flax. In 1705 during the violent elections, he was taken to Lincoln jail. Later in 1705 his cattle were maimed. In 1709 was the famous fire that destroyed the Rectory. Again, this was probable arson. The Wesley family was in bed when the fire broke out between eleven and twelve o‟clock on February 9th. The family managed to escape through a window. John was trapped and was eventually rescued from an upstairs window. Samuel Wesley was very scholarly. He wrote a history of the Old and New Testaments as well as a work about the book of Job. His wife Susanna was a fine scholar too. She organised the education of her children herself, including the training in “the deeper things of life”. She had 19 children of whom 10 grew to maturity. She brought them up in methodical, strict disciplinarian ways. They were taught to “fear the rod and cry softly”. Each child started education at 5 years. Her school hours were 9 to 12 o‟clock and 2 to 5 o‟clock. All the children in the first day learnt their alphabet. Later Maths, Grammar, History, Geography, Classics and Theology were taught. With such a comprehensive education rigorously applied, it is not too surprising that John and Charles went to Cambridge University. It was there in a bible group nicknamed the „Holy Club‟ that the origins of the present day Methodist Church are to be found. Both, however, were ordained Ministers of the Church of England and later John worked as his father‟s curate. After his father‟s death, they both went to Georgia to teach and preach to the Indians, but they failed to understand the people and their difficulties. In 1738 John‟s life was remarkably changed. He saw his religion in a new light. He felt he must go out and tell everyone the “good news” about God. The local clergy found his new methods of teaching distasteful and he was banned from preaching in many churches. He preached in the market squares and the open fields where huge crowds came to hear him. He probably rode about 250,000 miles throughout the country. He returned frequently to Epworth and in 1784 he wrote, “I rode to Epworth which I still love beyond most places in the world”. Charles also rode around England preaching, but he still found time to write over 6,000 hymns. John and Charles died as ordained members of the Church of England. They did not set out with the idea of creating a new church, but as their ideas and methods became more widely known so the formation of a new church became a possibility.

Watts Associates have launched their Business Navigator service which they have used successfully with a broad range of businesses. We asked George Watts of Watts Associates what the service entails... ―What we deliver is tailored to each business. We use the analogy of the business owner being the Captain of their ship which is on a journey, and we work alongside the captain as their Business Navigator. We help businesses to see where they are, plan for where they want to go, provide them with navigational aids so they can track their journey and correct course when things don‘t go to plan, make the business work efficiently, identify and avoid the icebergs and arrive at their destination safely before setting off on the next journey. The emphasis is on knowing where you are and looking forward to the future‖ Q “So what exactly does that entail?” A ―Everything is tailored to your business and what you will require will depend upon where you are on the journey. Being Chartered Management Accountants with over 25 years of broad management experience we bring that experience to your business and have both a management and financial approach. We produce the accounts and tax returns and provide appropriate advice as you would expect, but we also work closely alongside business owners and managers to plan and take their business forward, with a clear emphasis on navigation and looking forward. In many ways it‘s a service that is similar to the role of a Finance Director in a large plc, but it‘s tailored to all types of businesses, from start up through to medium and large companies‖ Q “What results do you achieve?” A ―The results directly depend on what we do. We‘ve helped businesses clarify their direction, simplified systems to make things easier, improved management information and given owners a clearer view of where they are, produced accounts quicker (including earlier production of annual accounts), helped businesses raise finance, increased their profits and reduced their tax. In addition, by working closely alongside people we‘ve learnt about their business and then helped them develop their own business skills, so they are more in control of both their business and their life‖ For more information on the Business Navigator service please contact George Watts on 01302 842831 or visit the Watts Associates website

Surgery Dates These councillor surgeries are your opportunity to voice your concerns: whether you are concerned about local transport issues, rented accommodation, local services etc. The more feedback the Council have the more effectively it can discharge its responsibilities. Surgeries take place on the following dates between 10.00a.m. - 12.00 noon: Surgeries are held in the council office; meadow Cottage, Fieldside. 29th January 2011 26th February 2011 26th March 2011 30th April 2011 Johnson's Lane Playing Field. Some significant progress has recently been made with the refurbishment of the playing field, the management committee have decided on a supplier of recreational equipment for the first phase of the development and plans are in hand to prepare the field ready for their installation. Weed killer has already been laid along the boundaries of the field adjacent to the back gardens of properties along Johnson's Lane and Windsor Road in preparation for ploughing and the removal of the concrete pads which supported the old equipment; these jobs will allow the planting of a hedge protected by a fence which should form adequate protection for local residents against any activities taking place on the field. On the other side of the field where it borders the primary school some conifer trees will be thinned out and some pruning will be done. The council is providing funding for the purchase of new gates sited at the entrance to the field off Johnson's Lane; these gates will be shut during the refurbishment to meet health and safety regulations. A sign will be erected next to the gates showing the times when the park will be opened. Although the present economic situation means that money is becoming harder to raise the management committee are still actively seeking funding for subsequent phases of development and a major consideration in this respect is the need to cater to all age groups in the community. A raffle is currently being undertaken to raise money for the playing field with the lucky winner receiving a prize of £500 the winning ticket will be drawn before Christmas. News has just been announced that the 'Playbuilder ‗money that we were initially awarded through North Lincolnshire Council but was later withheld due to government 'ring fencing', has been given the go ahead so that we are now better off by £45,000. Some thanks for this must go to our local MP who made representations on behalf of our fund raising initiatives and enables us to consider setting in motion phase two of the proposed development.

Development of the Market Square. The project manager for phase two of the development of the market place is confident that sufficient enthusiasm has been shown by business interests to proceed with the construction of buildings to the north of the market place and bounding the newly built thoroughfare Brunyee Road, provided that grants are still available to fund the project. As part of this development Crowle and Ealand Town Council have been offered a property to house their office at a discounted price. A referendum will be put to the electorate of Crowle and Ealand to determine whether the council should proceed with this offer. At a recent public meeting doubts were expressed about the scheme, but it has been resolved by the council to put before the public a business plan which would indicate how the proposed purchase would be managed, so that people can objectively consider the matter and vote in accordance with their informed opinion. Phase two would include new retail outlets and office accommodation and contribute to the economic welfare of the town and help bring to completion the Renaissance Market Town project which thus far has resulted in a refurbished market place. There are now plans to use the market place for various events including specialised markets which it is hoped will attract both local people and visitors to the community. Dr. Bruce Trophy. This year several worthy contenders were nominated for the Dr Bruce Trophy in recognition for the work they have undertaken for the benefit of the community. At the council meeting in October it was decided to award the trophy to Jack Bower, a teenager who has made major contributions to the Crowle Lights, the Regeneration, and local Lions groups. His enthusiasm has been much valued as well as the time he has given to the many local activities to which he has contributed. A presentation of the trophy took place at the Hub during the council meeting to be held on November 9th. at 7.30 p.m. Members of the public were welcome to attend. Notices. The team currently working on the Town Plan are still looking for new members.......this is your opportunity to steer future developments in the town and join a team of enthusiastic volunteers who want to realise the full potential of our community.

HAPPY NEW YEAR! It‘s not that long ago that we were singing, ―We plough the fields and scatter the good seed on the land.‖ It contains the line, ―He sends the snow in winter‖ and ‗He‘ – has certainly sent snow this winter! Some people love the snow: it gets them days off school and it‘s fun to play in. For others, snow is a disaster: they dare not go out in case they slip and it‘s so cold. But whether we like it or not, ‗He‘ sends it. Now we‘ve moved on from Harvest Hymns to Christmas Carols and they are all about ‗He‘ – the baby in a manger. Many youngsters don‘t know the traditional Christmas Carols because when they sing about ‗He‘ in school, the music is very different. But they still sing abut ‗He‘. And so we come to the New Year. No special hymns here. Indeed for most of the year there are no special hymns. Yet throughout the year, the Church gathers every week to pray to ‗He‘, to sing to ‗He‘ and to learn about ‗He‘. Who is this ‗He‘? ‗He‘ is our wonderful God who loves us just as we are and loves us so much ‗He‘ doesn‘t want to leave us as we are. Whatever the New Year throws at us, ‗He‘ walks with us into every situation. Call in at a Church or Chapel near you to find out more! ‗He‘ is there waiting for you.

Local schools benefit as the Mobile Ladies regions Prom Fair will be Hair Stylist held at FOREST PINES, Cut and Blow, Scunthorpe, on Sunday Colours, Perms Specialist in 13th February 2011 Hair Extensions Organisers of the region‘s newest & largest prom Contact Paula fair and their exhibiting partners are keen to help 01724 798083 boost local school fundraising activities and as part 0759 9374253 of the build up to the Dazzle Prom Fair launched a support package for all participating schools that has encouraged many school prom committees to get involved in the build up to the event to offer advice & assistance to pupils attending next year‘s proms. Along with the obvious benefits to hire shops and retailers, a whole industry has grown up around the proms. The best hairdressers, make-up artists and manicurists are booked up weeks ahead of the special evening. Taxi and limousine companies are fully committed too, and disco buses right through to vintage cars are rising fast up the list of 'gotta haves.' To everyone's amazement, boys are now keen smarten up, and trainers give way to smart shoes, with Tshirts replaced by tuxedos. This transformation has been encouraged by teachers, and several have told us that they can see the pupils grow in stature and confidence as they don the dress or the suit. The new Dazzle Prom Fair will be held at FOREST PINES, SCUNTHORPE, starting at 11.0am and run through to 4p.m. The event will feature live fashion shows offering inspiration and style guidance not only for the girls but for the boys too. The shows which will also include the regional „Street Beat Dancers‟ will be running throughout the day and supported by a whole range of activities including hair demonstrations, body painting, nail art, right through to a vast array of transportation options essential for arriving at the prom in style! Venue decorations including room settings, balloon compilations will also be on display providing the opportunity for prom organisers and young people to view all their prom needs under one roof. We are striving to make proms ‘hassle’ free for all concerned” said Leesa Sharpe & Wendy Ashton - partners of Dazzle Prom. The event is set to make prom planning an enjoyable experience for all involved, parents, young people and organisers alike.
