Safeguarding

The welfare and safety of our students is our priority. We do everything possible to ensure our students’ safety, both within the school community and outside of school, including working with relevant agencies to address any issues related to child protection. Students are informed of who they should go to should they have a concern about their own safety or the safety of others. At INA, all staff have regular safeguarding training to ensure that they are able to meet their statutory responsibilities. We also have a number of staff who are designated to respond to any child protection concerns and to liaise with social services:

Designated Safeguarding Lead (DSL) Jo Spencer Vice Principal Deputy Designated Safeguarding Lead (DDSL) Tam Broadway Primary Headteacher Designated Child Protection Officers Eleanor Seale Office Manager Leanne Abbott-Jones Assistant Principal Gareth Marshall-Jones Primary Deputy Headteacher You can find the INA Safeguarding policy, Child Protection policy and other related policies and procedures on the Academy’s website.

Dear Parents and Carers, We held our annual Open Evening this week for parents of Year 6 children who are choosing secondary schools at this time of year. It was wonderful to see the school full of visitors and, as always, I was extremely impressed by the Year 7 guides and proud of all the students who were helping in curriculum areas, showcasing the school so well.

Next Tuesday we hold our Sixth Form Open Evening, starting at 6pm. This is a great opportunity for parents of Year 11s to hear more about the KS5 courses and the way that our brand new sixth form will operate. There will be the opportunity for students to attend taster sessions in a wide range of subjects; spaces will be limited so arrive early arrival to avoid disappointment! With best wishes,

Barclays Careers Day On Thursday 29th September we welcomed 40 guests from Barclays Capital. They spent the day working with all of our Y11 students; providing workshops in self confidence, CV writing and interview skills. We were delighted that every student in Y11 received a mock interview. The students really enjoyed the day and found the sessions invaluable. “The Barclays Careers Day went extremely well. It was a great experience for all of us in Y11. We were able to have a good insight into what the sixth form will be like and also career paths we might want to take in the future. In addition to this it was inspiring to see the lives of many successful people and what brought them to the position that they are in today. We got to experience how a real life interview would be, which I personally thought was very helpful. Overall the Barclays Careers Day was an amazing experience to be part of ” — Simran Larr “We each experienced three different sessions in order to improve our CV writing skill, our interview skills and our self-confidence. I really enjoyed the day as I had the opportunity to meet many people from an international, highly regarded company, who encouraged us to develop both our academic learning as well as our extra-curricular and ‘outside the classroom’ learning. It was immensely useful and we are now more familiar with the best ways to develop our skills, present ourselves in the best possible was and ultimately get the future job we will be applying for eventually. Overall it was an engaging, informative event that will definitely benefit all of us as we progress through our careers.” — Keanna Bhalla “I believe that the Barclays Career event was very beneficial and helpful to our year group, as it enabled us to amend our CVs and speak to experienced professionals. The 40 Barclays staff that visited our year group held engaging and constructive sessions which allowed us to consider our future career aspirations. I think this was a great opportunity for us to as any questions regarding our potential paths and also to further our understanding of what employers expect from you during a job interview.” — Arnie Patel

“Having the Barclays Career Day was a very enriching experience for me and the rest of the year group. It was a great opportunity for us to learn more about what is involved after we leave school. We were taught what to put in a CV and how to construct it as well as how to be interviewed; what to do and what to say using the STAR model. It was very inspiring to listen to different Barclays employees and to learn what their journey was and how they went about with their life to get to where they are now. I am personally grateful to be able to partake in such a rewarding experience such as this and I am sure it will be helpful in the future.” — Ibraheem Bhaijee The Barclays team were really impressed by INA. They commented on our fantastic facilities, enrichment opportunities and the focus of our Y11 students. “This is the largest careers day we have done by far with 35 Barclays Employees and 180 students. Isaac Newton Academy is a very diverse school, similarly Barclays Capital is a very diverse company so we feel that there is a great match.” “We organised the day to be completely bespoke to Isaac Newton Academy, so a lot of organisation was in place for the event.” “There is a huge mix of individuals at INA with a range of personalities. We have been working with both introvert and extrovert students and today has really encouraged some of the students to come out of their shells. It has been extremely enjoyable and rewarding for us at Barclays.” “Today has been an amazing opportunity for Barclays Capital and we are really excited about building our relationship with Isaac Newton Academy.”

We would like to thank the Barclays team for giving their time to support our students and look forward to welcoming them back in the future. Ms Alibhai Vice Prinicpal

Year 7

Settling In Evening Wednesday October 12th 2016 Our Settling In Evening for the parents/carers of year 7 students will take place on Wednesday the 12th October from 5.15-7pm. It is important that every year 7 student is represented by his/her parents/carers. The Settling In Evening is an opportunity to learn more about key policies, such as Behaviour for Learning, Independent Learning and Pastoral Care, and how we measure and track attainment and progress at INA. We will also explain a little bit more about the BRIDGES lessons at INA. We will also offer advice on how you can most effectively support your child with Independent Learning and reading. The presentations will start at 6pm in the Key Stage 3 Hall; from 5.15-5.50pm we invite you to take the opportunity to meet other parents/carers, your child’s form tutor, Pastoral Leader and the members of the senior leadership team in the dining hall and to visit our school library. We look forward to seeing the parents of every Year 7 student at this key transition event.

Attendance Regular attendance is a crucial factor in students’ educational development and ability to achieve their full potential. At Isaac Newton Academy every student is set the target of 100% attendance. We know that attendance has a direct link to progress, and would urge you to really consider if a day off school is necessary. Well done to 8A, 9C and 11W for achieving over 99%. The challenge is still on for the first tutor group to meet the 100% target this term. Year 7 are the top year group for the week with 96.6%. 7I

Shakespeare Schools Festival Cast Workshop Review

On Thursday 29th September, 25 cast members and 2 student directors across years 8, 9 and 10 travelled to Camden for the Shakespeare Schools Festival cast workshop. We met some students from Burlington Danes who are rehearsing for their version of The Taming of the Shrew. We began the workshop with some warm-up activities and the facilitators talked about the idea of ‘readiness’; being both physically and mentally ready for performance. We explored practical ways to achieve this. We also experimented with voice and movement exercises to develop our characterisation. In the latter half of the session we were given an opportunity to share a scene from our play, A Midsummer Night’s Dream. Although a nerve-wracking experience (as we only staged the selected scene the night before!), 8 Secondary Newsletter

7 October 2016


we found it a really valuable experience and were given some useful feedback. In turn we watched a scene from A Taming of the Shrew and gave the actors some notes on how successfully the characters were communicated, how well the students brought the world of the play to life and the clarity of the language.

All in all, a great day and worthwhile process- we have some exciting new ideas!

Year 11 Controlled Assessments Message for Parents Throughout the two year French GCSE course our students undertake three Writing and three Speaking Controlled Assessments. Our students have so far done two Speaking and two Writing Controlled Assessments; however they still have to prepare for one more Speaking and one more Writing Controlled Assessment before Christmas. It is crucial that our students take advantage of all the support and help they are being offered and attend all lessons and preparation sessions. These exams are not a practice run. They are their actual GCSE exams and must be taken with the seriousness they deserve. Their Speaking exams will take place on Monday 17th October, Tuesday 18th October or Wednesday 19th October depending on their group (please check their organiser for the exact date and time). Attendance is compulsory. We appreciate your support in making sure that you child turns up on time to their exam. 7 October 2016 Secondary Newsletter

Praise and Recognition At INA, we aim to provide a stimulating, challenging and rewarding learning environment which supports learning, celebrates achievement and encourages everyone. Awarding merits, informal praise in class and the end of term awards assemblies are all part of this. Please speak to your child/children on a regular basis to see how many merits they have and how they are working towards the different awards on offer.

Merits It is the start of another year so we are restarting the Form Merit competition. Each merit you gain will increase your individual total and also your form’s overall total. So make sure you are keeping up the good work to gain merits! Also if you are owed a merit, go and collect it and make sure it gets recorded on your form’s spreadsheet! Year 7

Ahmed Al-Khafaji Award (Peer Commendation Award) Ahmed was well known for being kind, for helping others and for being extremely polite. He was also someone known for his hard work and absorption. The idea, therefore, is that the winner should be someone who encapsulated one of these qualities in that week.

Callum leads and supervises activities during the overnight stays and he even cooks meals for the younger children. Callum has already achieved Bronze, Silver and Gold Scout awards and is currently working towards the Platinum award which involves doing fifty hours of volunteering and community service, in addition to the work he is already doing to support young scouts.

enship Other students who have shown great citizenship

Shanzay Dar in 7W is always so helpful in form time – running errands and assisting with jobs that need doing, such as the merit board. She offers to help, rather than waiting to be asked – a credit to the form.

Sunil Mann in 8T is a very community-spirited student. He was a disciplined sports rep in Year 7 and enjoyed this responsibility very much. He displays great deals of empathy by supporting other students in and around school, and supporting teacher with tasks. He played a crucial role in the form assembly, and delivered it with great energy and grace.

Top tips

Participate in activities to improve your community and the environment, for example local library campaigns and events at local parks or places of worship. Pick up litter, recycle, and plant flowers. Be a good neighbour and volunteer to help older members of the community by putting out their rubbish, collecting their newspaper, sweeping their path or weeding their garden. Make a point of talking to any student who is on his/her own at lunch or break time. Aim to engage in at least one charity fund-raising event this year. Take your old books/toys/clothes to a charity shop.

Parents • • •

Read the national and local papers with your child and discuss examples of good citizenship. Discuss what the school, the UK or the World would be like if people did not show citizenship towards each other. Find out about the community groups in your local area (for example, Shelter Redbridge Action group, Friends of the Earth Ilford and Ilford National Trust) and take your child along to one of the meetings.

THIS WEEK IN P.E……………… AT INA YEAR 11 START WITH A GOAL FEST! Valentines 5 – 4 INA The Year 11 team started their season with an end to end game against Valentines School. The home team started well and were awarded a penalty which was quickly followed with a second goal to put Valentines 2-0 ahead. However, INA did not let their heads drop and came back with 2 goals in quick succession through Hashim Hussain and Shareef Malik. The game then tightened up and was quite even throughout, with teams exchanging goals either side of half time. Despite a number of opportunities, INA could not stop the home team winning 5-4. They will look to keep the ball on the floor and improve their passing going into their cup game next week.

YEAR 9 LOSE OUT DESPITE SCORING 4 Seven Kings 7 – 4 INA Unfortunately Year 9 suffered their first defeat of the season. After last year’s 2-2 draw this was always going to be a tight game. The only difference between the two teams was a few defensive errors. The game finished 7-4 to Seven Kings with 4 goals being conceded during a 10 minute spell in the first half. INA battled on and reduced the deficit and looked like coming back, however little mistakes cost us goals and made the gap too much to close. Goals came from Finley Adams, Cian Clinton and two from Lucas Overton. INA showed brilliant spirit and determination throughout the game. Man of the Match performance goes to Lucas Overton for being a constant threat whatever position he was asked to play.
