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:

Dear Parents and Carers, On Tuesday this week we hosted our first ever Sixth Form Open Evening. We were delighted that over 80% of the Year 11 cohort from INA came along. They were joined by a significant number of students from Seven Kings, Ursuline, Palmer Academy and Woodford County High School, as well as Year 11s from some secondary schools in Waltham Forest and Newham. The parents got to explore the fabulous sixth form facilities on our third floor while the students enjoyed taster lessons in a wide range of subjects. We have another Open Evening on 10th November and further taster sessions on Monday 24th October (please sign up on the INA website). Many thanks to Ms Alibhai for all her hard work in preparation for the opening of INA’s sixth form. It was lovely to welcome parents of Year 7s into the academy on Wednesday for a Settling In Evening. As well as input form a range of senior staff, the evening provided an opportunity to meet with the Year 7 tutors and to visit the library. Thanks go to Ms Abbott-Jones for her organisation of the event. Some of you will have been concerned to hear that last week one of our students was approached near to his house after school by strangers who tried to encourage him to get into their car. I am proud to report that another of our students came to his rescue, shouted at the strangers and then walked the victim to his home. It is really reassuring to see the advice that we give to our students at INA regarding stranger danger being put to good use. I am also pleased to report that Mr Coughlin’s assemblies this week and next week are coincidentally focused on street harassment. We will continue to prioritise educating our students about how to keep safe in society and to encourage them to show citizenships dispositions in looking after each other. With best wishes,

Black History Month 2016

The beginnings of Black History Month go back to 1926 when black historian Carter G. Woodson began what he called “Negro History Week” in the USA. In 1969, the week’s celebration was expanded to a month and in 1976, Black History Month was endorsed by the US government. In the United Kingdom, Black History Month has been celebrated every October since 1987. Black History Month provides us with a focus to celebrate the achievements of Black and Minority Ethnic people from the UK and overseas. The Black community has used this month to share with the rest of the world the contribution that Black people have made to human development. It is a time to demonstrate pride in, and respect for, the creativity, intellectual achievements and sporting prowess of Black and Minority Ethnic people. The Prime Minister, Teresa May, who is leading support for Black History Month 2016 has said: “I am so pleased to support Black History Month which recognises, rewards and celebrates the contribution made to our society over many years by the African and Caribbean communities. It is an opportunity for us all to recognise the incredible achievements of successful African and Caribbean men and women across sectors including financial services, retail, media, the arts, science and technology and sport. I remember, like many others in our country watching Mo Farah and Kadeena Cox, along with many other athletes, proudly representing this country at the Rio Olympics. African and Caribbean athletes have always had a hugely positive impact over young and old around the world and, for many years, here in Britain. Celebrating these achievements is really important – but moreover, I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of our African and Caribbean communities in the UK for the enormous contribution you make to our country. Equally, Black History Month is a time when we can be thankful for the huge progress made in the UK over recent decades in tackling racist attitudes, increasing diversity, and improving equality of opportunity – while of course recognising that we still have much further to go. My mission is to build on what we have already achieved to make Britain a country that truly works for everyone, whoever we are and wherever we’re from. So let me congratulate the organisers and volunteers for making this month such a bright and vibrant event and I wish everyone involved all the best.”

The passing of the first Three Time World Heavyweight Champion, Muhammed Ali on June 6th this year, polarised mainstream media and their audiences in the coverage on his life and Legacy. Muhammed Ali was ‘more than just a Boxer’. He was a Black, Muslim man in Pre-Civil Rights Era America and he would go on to be an activist for the remainder of his life. Erasing these facts not only erases his importance worldwide, but the prejudice and struggles Ali endured. Muhammed Ali did not ‘transcend race’. Ali was the Blackest version of himself, and was proud to be. Ali’s pride is what made him a champion not just in the ring and realm of Boxing, but as an Activist and as a campaigner of Civil Rights movement in both America, and across the world. To remember Muhammed Ali, is to remember who he was, more so that what he became. Ali may have become a three time world heavyweight champion, he may have become a Muslim, a Civil Rights Campaigner, a world megastar, a sports personality of the century, a husband and father, an Olympic Gold medalist, a ‘draft evader’, a conscientious objector, a counter-culturalist, a suffer of Parkinson’s disease, a suicide preventer. 
But who he was a man that believed he was the greatest at what he did and those beliefs are what made him become who he was; an inspiration for generations that have been and are to come.

Nina Simone is best known for her talents in the Music industry as a Singer/Songwriter covering genres from Blues and Jazz, to Gospel and Pop. However, Nina’s influence on History and why she makes this list, stems from her work as a Civil Rights Activist. Born to a Christian family in North Carolina on February 21st, 1933; the early aspirations for the Civil Rights campaigner would be to become a concert pianist, which would lead her to audition at Curtis Institiute of Music in Philadelphia, but was sadly rejected; a decision she felt was based on her Race. Taking up studies in Music at Juilliard School of Music in New York would be expensive and Nina took a job playing as a pianist at Midtown Bar & Grill on 14 October 2016 Secondary Newsletter


Pacific Avenue in Atlantic City. However, despite the knowledge that her studies could not be funded by her parents, she also knew that her parents would not approve of playing ‘the Devils music’, and thus adopted the name Nina Simone in 1951. Simone’s inspiration to become involved in the Civil Rights Movement of the 1960’s is due to an incident at her first ‘concert’ at the age of 12. Here, her parents were moved to the back of the Church theatre in order to make space for White People. Angered that her parents may miss her recital based on Race, Nina refused to perform until her parents were reinstated at the front of the theatre. From then on, a Civil Rights message was standard in Simone’s recording repertoire, becoming a part of her live performances. Simone performed and spoke at many civil rights meetings, such as at the Selma to Montgomery marches. Simone advocated violent revolution during the civil rights period, rather than Martin Luther King’s non-violent approach, hoping that African Americans could, by armed combat, form a separate state. Nevertheless, she wrote in her autobiography that she and her family regarded all races as equal. At Isaac Newton Academy the students will be celebrating and reflecting on the achievements of Black and Ethnic Minority groups each week in October. Ms. Priestley Lead Teacher of History

Monday 14th November is an Independent Learning day This day is the first Independent Learning day of the year when secondary students will complete their learning independently at home. Students in KS3 and KS4 will not attend the Academy on this day. The purpose of the day is for students to consolidate and extend their learning in their various subjects. This will help to develop students’ BRIDGES skills of self-discipline, independence, discovery, organisation and adaptability and other important learning dispositions. The discipline of working independently is also important to develop in preparation for sixth form learning and study at university. Teachers have given careful consideration to the tasks they are setting for the day which can be accessed remotely on Fronter. There will be opportunities to practise key skills, elaborate upon prior learning, explore concepts and knowledge in more depth and to do some pre-learning tasks. Stretch and challenge tasks will be also available. It would be helpful if parents can ensure that the learning set by teachers is completed to a high standard.

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.

Y11 Marks and Spencer careers interviews over the summer The students who attended the Marks and Spencer careers interviews over the summer were able to experience an insight into the types of questions you may be asked in an interview “The interview feedback was useful, it gave me a good insight into the type of question you may get asked.” Leanne Y11. The feedback they received will enable them to improve their interview technique for their upcoming 6th form applications. “I received a feedback sheet that broke the questions down into easy to understand steps, Pearl Y11” All students involved felt they were in a stronger position now because of the experience, so thank you to Ilford Marks and Spencer.”

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.

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.

LONDON CLUB TRIP TO THE SOUTH BANK The London Club trip to the South Bank was amazing! It was so interesting the whole way through and I think this was an unforgettable experience for everyone that came. Walking along the South Bank was really fun. I got an amazing view of the skyline of London. I could see many great monuments including The Shard, Tower Bridge and St Paul’s Cathedral. At the beginning of the journey we all got on an empty train to Stratford Station then got the tube to London and got off at London Bridge Station. We all went to this old and large market called Borough Market. Fun fact: in 2014 Borough Market celebrated its 1000th birthday. As we passed by the stalls I could smell the aroma of cheese. There were many different types of cheese as well. We saw amazing fish too. As we moved on from Borough Market, we went to Southwark Cathedral where we answered some questions on Mary Overie and why she joined the convent. After that our next location was Shakespeare’s Globe. The walk down the South Bank was really fun and interesting. Our next location was the rockpool beach next to the Thames. That was one of my highlights of the day! I was doing what any child would do: throwing stones into the river. Overall I thought this trip is amazing and I would like to go again. Here are some images that I took on the trip. Anish Mistry 8C

LONDON TRIP REVIEW The London club trip was great fun as I met a lot of people and made new friends.I also learnt a lot of history about London. I was very excited when we went to the Borough Market. At the Borough market we saw sea food, plants, vegetables and an assortment of cheeses from all around the world. The best part of the market was the sample cookies which were amazing. We also saw the Shard. My time at the London club was fun and amusing. I hope I go next term too. Taybah Patel 8W

Mita Desai Visit to INA We were delighted to welcome Mita Desai to INA, as she supported us in our commitment to develop student leadership. Mita first delivered an inspirational assembly to our Year 10s and Year 11s. The assembly had a clear message in that everybody has the opportunity and potential to make a positive change in society. Following the assembly, members of the Student Council took part in a specially designed workshop which aimed to develop leadership skills and support the Student Council in their attempts to drive positive changes. Finally, Mita visited the primary site where the Primary Student Council learnt about being confident and powers of persuasion. It was an extremely worthwhile day all round, as Aasif Rahman (10E) explains: “I found that the visit was extremely helpful to build our confidence and to expand our creativity”. 14 October 2016 Secondary Newsletter

THIS WEEK IN P.E……………… AT INA Year 7 Boys make a solid start The Year 7 Boys’ football team made a great start to the season with a 6-1 victory against Valentines. The team worked and defended really well together considering it was their first game. The back line of Denis, Yasir and Hamoud, alongside Shakib’s great goalkeeping, kept Valentines at bay. Good performances going forward from the likes of Raghav and Subhaam made sure that INA took the point in their first game.

Year 8 girls put in a great effort! On Thursday 6th October Year 8 girls played their first netball match of the season. With a few new players making the squad this year after what was a great turn out to trials, the squad was rotated after every quarter with players getting to experience playing various positions throughout the match. After the first 2 quarters the match was very close, with both teams scoring 4 goals each. The second two quarters saw Valentines take a hold of the game and, with some excellent shooting from their GA and GS, they went into the final quarter with a 3 goal advantage. Despite some outstanding performances from Daveena Williams Morrison and Glory Mondua, Valentines went on to secure victory winning 8-5. INA have a large squad and it is great to have so much competition for places, which can only be a positive for future matches. The girls spent 5 minutes working hard on their landing and footwork after the match to prepare for our next fixture.

Year 10 through to the Quarter finals of the Redbridge Cup Last Thursday the Year 10 football team played against Chadwell Heath Academy in the Redbridge cup. It was an end to end start to the match with both teams having chances, but we took the lead after Gyane played a superb back heel flick to set Yameen through, who outpaced their defender and blasted the ball home 1-0. Chadwell then piled the pressure on, which led to a penalty against us, to which Brett stood brave and firm and dived towards his left and pushed the ball over the bar. However the score ended 1-1 at half time as Chadwell scored soon after.

20 Secondary Newsletter

14 October 2016

We scored our 2nd goal from the genius Gyane, who weaved in and out of 4 Chadwell players, then showed an injection of pace to get one on one with the goalkeeper, and then calmly placed the ball home 2-1. Our 3rd goal game, after Saleem played a ball over the top of their defence, and Manraj sprinted on past their defenders to get the ball and showed good composure to score. 3-1. Chadwell scored a late goal but we hung on for a 3-2 win. The man of the match was Gyane with his superb goal, assist and dominance within midfield. The squad was: Brett Butler, Esher Bahara, Mason Pickton, Neel Banarsee, Saleem Kidiya, Djevia Elliel, Jonah Robinson, Gyane Sanderson, Muhammad Awadh, Djevia Elliel, Yameen Islam.

Year 9 fight hard but lose out….. The team faced Trinity in the first round of the cup. Trinity have won both the league and the cup 2 for the last 2 years running, so INA knew they were in for a test. With INA focused on their jobs and not the reputation of their opponents, they started the game very strong, keeping Trinity at bay for most of the half and creating a few half chances. At the end of the first half it was 1-0l to Trinity but the defensive display by INA was one to be proud of and the mood amongst the players at half time was very positive. 10 minutes into the second half Trinity caught us on the counter attack and made the score 2-0, with INA still applying pressure and showing great determination. However the third goal went in due to a great piece of play by Trinity and unfortunately affected the players’ confidence and perseverance. With our heads down and concentration slipping, we shipped in a further 3 goals in the last 10 minutes. A great first half performance from INA, however unfortunately didn’t see it out until the end. Man of the match was Faruq Sultan with a superb display in goal; without him it could have easily have been double figures. Well done.
