Southern Entrance

We would like to remind parents and carers that the gate at the southern entrance will be locked at 08:23 each morning. Students arriving after this time should enter via the main entrance in Cricklefield Place.

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 Patrick Ball Pastoral Leader

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, With just three weeks to go until the first written exams, we are all supporting the year 11s in the final stages of their GCSE preparation. We are very proud of all that they have achieved in the past five years and wish them all the very best of luck in their terminal assessments. Many thanks this week go to Ms Hermolle for organising the Three Musketeers event and to Ms Rayner for taking girls on a weekend residential to Somerset. The calendar for this term is really packed, with various trips, visits and activities. Please make sure to check dates carefully and commit key events to your diaries. With all best wishes,

Rachel Macfarlane Cover image:

Year 7 Visit to Teach First

On Wednesday 19 April 2017, eight students from year seven were given the opportunity to attend a trip to the Teach First offices in North Greenwich. When we arrived, we were kindly greeted by James (our guide) and a table set with lunch. We were introduced to the Teach First program and how it worked. We also took part in an activity where we had to describe the qualities of a good teacher. Then we were given the chance to meet some undergraduates and ask them how their lives have changed since they have been at university. We observed four lessons which ran for four minutes. Whilst we were watching, we made notes, whether they ticked all the boxes of our success criteria. At the end we made a presentation to the students stating what was good about the lessons and things that could be improved. We also chose a winner. It was a great experience for us and will help us in the future with our social skills when meeting new people in places such as university. By Sakinah Choudhury 7C and Gemma Joseph 71

BRIDGES Mentoring Wednesday 17th May The second BRIDGES mentoring session takes place on Wednesday 17th May from 1:45-4:30pm. All students will be given a fifteen minute 1:1 coaching session with their BRIDGES mentor.

This is an important opportunity for KS3 students to reflect on how they have developed or strengthened their BRIDGES dispositions, to discuss the dispositions they consider to be their strengths and the ones they need to work on further. Year 10 students will be engaging in a mock interview focusing on their preparedness for GCSEs and work experience and how they are further strengthening their BRIDGES dispositions to achieve success in both. Year 11 students will return home for an independent learning afternoon which they should use for revision.

Arrangements All students will complete lessons p1 – 4. Lesson 4 will end at 12.50 (Y10 & 11 students will complete lesson 4 as per KS3 timings). Students will leave school at 1.00pm. Students who are eligible for Free School Meals who request lunch in advance (via form tutors) can collect a lunch bag from the student reception as they leave. Students are expected to go directly home and return between 1.45-4.30pm for a fifteen minute 1:1 coaching session with their BRIDGES mentor. They are not permitted to wait on site for appointments that start at 1.45pm. Appointment times will be issued to students at the start of next week. Students must attend their session on time. KS3 students must wear full school uniform. Year 10 students may wear either school uniform or professional work wear. We are unable to supervise other students as all staff are BRIDGES mentors and will be engaged in mentoring session throughout the afternoon. Parents are not required at the sessions but will be given feedback on how their son or daughter’s BRIDGES skills are progressing later in the year. Please note that enrichment will be cancelled on this day. Jo Spencer, Vice Prinicpal 28 April 2017

On Tuesday 25th April, Freshwater Theatre Productions visited INA to put on a version of Les Trois Mousquetaires (The Three Musketeers). The show covered the introductory chapter of Alexander Dumas’ famous novel and introduced every student at INA to 17th century Paris and d’Artagnan’s quest to become the fourth Musketeer. Students played the roles of the King Louis XIII, The Cardinal, d’Artagnan’s father, his trusty horse, Monsieur Détreville (the head of the Musketeers), the cardinal’s guards and the three musketeers themselves – Athos, Porthos and Aramis. Audience participation was essential in making the performance a success and our INA students did an excellent job of providing the sound effects, rapping, singing and being excellent Parisians supporting d’Artagnan on his quest - every student speaking French throughout the performance.

Work Experience evening

Wednesday 10th May 2017 6.00pm Year 10 students and parents are invited to a work experience evening where we will outline the expectations and benefits of work experience and answer any questions that you have. Your son/daughter should either have selected a placement that we have arranged or organised their own placement. However if they are one of the minority that have not, please support them in selecting from the placements still available from INA or organising their own placement as a priority.

Girl Leading “Let me tell you about my trouble with girls … three things happen when they are in the lab … You fall in love with them, they fall in love with you and when you criticise them, they cry.” Tim Hunt, Nobel Prize Winner (2015) On Friday the 21st of April 3 students embarked on a very inspiring journey to Somerset where they took part in a 3 day residential. Shafa Siddique, Rachel Pearce and Maliha Ahmed were all invited to attend the Girl Leading residential, organised by Mulberry School for Girls and in support of Michelle Obama’s Let Girls Learn campaign.

residential had officially begun.

It was an early start for the girls as we met at school at 6:30am on Friday morning but all students were raring and ready for go! We travelled across London to Mulberry School where we met girls from other schools across London. From there, we began a gruelling 7 hour coach journey to Kilve Court in Somerset. The coach ride gave the girls the opportunity to start making friends before the weekend

As we stepped off the coach, it was plain to see just how inspired the girls were by the location; Kilve Court stood alone amidst miles of hills, fields and greenery- a real change of scenery for all of the London-based school students. At Kilve, we were introduced to more schools taking part in the residential which were from Somerset and surrounding villages. In total, 60 girls from years 8 and 9, across 11 participating schools met together for a weekend of challenge,

debate and learning. The programme was designed to support young girls in developing confidence, speaking skills and leadership, and in turn encourage those girls to inspire others so that each young female is reaching their full potential. After a quick briefing about the purpose of the weekend and some health and safety information we got stuck in straight away. We dumped our bags and were led to an outdoor assault course where the girls were put in teams with other schools and were tasked to test their collaboration, leadersh ip and problem-solving skills in a series of physical challenges. It was incredible to see just how quickly the students developed their team spirit and all girls were participating and playing vital roles in communication, motivation and decision-making. With each challenge the students reflected on what worked and each time their teamwork was improved and refined, and as a result they were much quicker to succeed. After all the fun and games, we were privileged enough to sit in on panel discussion where two speakers discussed their experiences as leading professionals in their respective fields. Miranda Lowe, a Scientist and Collections Manager at the National History Museum, in particular spoke about her struggle as a black female in the world of Science and gave us some insightful views about exactly how females can be disadvantaged in some industries and professions. She spoke about the lack of racial diversity in her sector and the gender-stereotyping she often suffers. More than this, she talked about how she is an advocate for positive change and talked us through the steps she has taken to ensure she is given the same treatment and opportunity as her male counterpart. It was a very rich and topical conversation. The students were then granted some free time when they excitedly got to see their rooms and explore Kilve Court. The students were housed with students

from other schools and quickly made some new friends in their roommates. We all had dinner and, after an exhausting journey, had a reasonably early night ready for a big day ahead. We woke up bright and early on Saturday to glorious sunshine and a jampacked day of activities and discussion. After breakfast, we had a Personal Confidence session with leading voice coach Sarah Blumenau. As a trained actor, Sarah gave us some practical ideas on how we can communicate a stronger ‘presence’ when speaking in front of an ‘audience’. She talked about our ‘presence’ being the use of voice and body in space and time and linked these ideas to status and confidence. We talked about public speakers we knew of that have a very small presence like Theresa May, and compared it to characters that have a big presence, like Donald Trump. Sarah taught us how to achieve an optimum presence, one that would allow our audience to feel comfortable and have confidence in us as speakers.

We then spent some time with organisers from Girlguiding charity, where we talked about confidence ‘blockers’ and ‘boosters’. Again, this was an enriching discussion and what that allowed us some perspective on some of the challenges young girls face every day; it enabled us to realise that we are not alone in our anxieties and that communicating how we are feeling is something

we should embrace. We reasoned that if more girls talked more openly about their personal challenges, we as a community would feel more empowered to ensue change, whether that be in response to the unrealistic ideas of beauty imposed on young women or the pressure to behave as ‘nice’ girls do. After lunch we sat in on another panel discussion between four inspirational speakers, all with their own story tell. We heard from Kat Banyard, founder and director of UKFeminista, from Eliza Ribeiro, found of Lives Not Knives charity, Sotez Chowdhury, Community Campaigner and Entrepreneur and Halla Gunnarsdóttir, Head of Policy for the Women’s Equality Party. It would definitely be worth doing some research into each of these figures; they all have incredibly interesting and thought-provoking stories and have each faced and overcome some unbelievable hurdles before reaching their success. Later in the evening the girls enjoyed a quiz facilitated by the staff at Kilve Court and went head to head with other schools. INA came 4th in the quiz which was a fantastic achievement given that we had the fewest members in our team! After the quiz Shafa impressed the girls with a rap that she performed- she has promised to teach it to Ms Rayner. Later on we enjoyed a nice walk in the countryside and a conversation where the girls were really open about their challenges and what can sometimes inhibit them from speaking out more- it was lovely and the girls were great company. On the Sunday morning we broke out into our school groups and were given the opportunity to put all we had learnt into practice. The students were tasked to create an independent project that they could manage at school to raise money for the Let Girls Learn charity. The girls had so many ideas that it was difficult to choose just one; so they have chosen 3. I won’t reveal the nature of these big and bright plans just yet… but watch this space! Once we had gathered some ideas and set some SMART targets for our independent project it was time to pack and say goodbye. The girls have made some great friends and really learnt a lot. I am looking forward to seeing how their project develops and what impact the residential has had.

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.

Good Deed Feed Mr Ball: There have been some new students to INA recently. Manpreet Kaur 7E has gone out her way to make them feel welcome, always being extra helpful and very kind. Mr Nevill: I would like to mention Ram Solanki 7W. He saw that another student didn’t understand something in his lesson and took time out of this own work to explain to him exactly how he understood it and then offered to work with him to understand the next part of the problem. Ms Hon-Ng: Musa Amin 7E, Munaza Azra 7E, Eashar Rihal 7N. These students helped me to clean the tables in Art after the Y11 exam before their Art Club enrichment. Thank you! Ms Hutson: Daina Williams-Morrison 10W– agreeing to take a visitor around the school at the last minute – she is always prepared to adapt and help out! Zahra Khan 10I– Always offering to help carry equipment for me in lessons and around school.

YEAR 11 NEWS Message from ARK Schools for Year 11 Students and their parents and carers Ark’s mission is to provide all of our students with the opportunity to go to a university or into a career of their choice.

Access information to understand what you go on to do once you have left school. This will include us accessing information from national datasets, for example the Higher Education Statistics Agency, and from relevant third party organisations up until you are 25. This information will only be used for internal measurement. No specific records identifying you or your destination will be published publicly. You will be asked to sign a form early next week in tutor time. Signing the form indicates that you authorise the relevant third party organisation to share your information with us on request until the age of 25.

Year 11 Study Leave - Summer 2017 The exam season starts on Monday 15th May and ends on Friday 23rd June. Half term is 29th May – 2nd June. Normal lessons for all students will continue until and including Friday 12th May. From Monday 15th May until Friday 26th May all Year 11 students will be in school all day and expected to attend their normal lessons if they are not in a GCSE exam. This will include pm lessons where they have an am exam, am lessons where they have a pm exam and lessons between am and pm exams, where applicable. Morning exams Each morning exam session will start at 8am. A 30 minute revision session (usually based in the dining hall) will occur from 8-8:30. At 8.30am a free breakfast will be provided for all Year 11 students taking the GCSE that morning. Afternoon exams Each afternoon exam session will start at 1pm (following KS4 lunch). A 30 minute revision session (usually based in the KS4 hall) will occur from 1-1:30. If a student has a lesson between a morning and afternoon exam, he/she should go to the lesson but the teacher will allow him/her to study for his/her afternoon exam rather than take part in the lesson. Teachers will continue with their Year 11 lessons right up until the final exam for that subject has been taken. Once the final exam has taken place, the student coming to the lesson will be allowed to get on with independent study for up-coming exams. The teacher will supervise and ensure that there is an atmosphere conducive to private study. From Monday 5th June, there will be study leave for Year 11 students. There will be a programme of revision lessons offered in the subjects where exams have not finished. Students will be expected to attend revision sessions that apply to them (although for some students who are good at revising independently these sessions will be optional and for others an invite will be issued and they will be required to attend.) There will be signing up arrangements so that staff know who they are expecting in advance of the session. Students will sign in and out at reception. At times when they do not have a revision lesson or an exam they will be expected to leave site to go home to revise. The last exam is on Friday 23rd June. We are planning to hold a pm Year 11 assembly on that day. The Graduation Ball is on the evening of Monday 10th July. Mr Crowther-Green, Assistant Principal 28 April 2017
