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) Leanne Abbott-Jones Assistant Principal Deputy Designated Safeguarding Lead (DDSL) Tam Broadway Primary Headteacher Sugra Alibhai Head of Sixth Form Designated Child Protection Officers Gabriel Ayerh Patrick Ball (Online safety) Pardeep Chaggar Jody Lapish Gareth Marshall-Jones

Dear Parents and Carers, I’m delighted to announce that our Year 11 Badminton Team, who came first in the London Schools Badminton contest, came an amazing 5th in the whole of the UK in the UK finals of the National Badminton Competition at Milton Keynes on Saturday! This is an incredible achievement. Congratulations to Akhil Pillai, Esher Bahara, Neel Banarsee and Eknokar Deerhe! Many thanks to Mr Healey for taking the boys to the competition and to all the staff who turned up to support them. The Year 11 French and Spanish speaking exams have taken place this week. Congratulations to all of the Year 11 languages students for showing great focus, hard work and resilience. The end of year exam season is fast approaching. The internal exam timetable has been published in the newsletter for the past few weeks and will continue to do so up until the end of the exams. All students have exams in all of their subject areas. Last week, Mr Marshall-Jones, Primary Deputy Headteacher, ran sessions for Year 7 students on how to revise effectively. Over the next two weeks, subject teachers will inform students what to revise and how best to revise for their subjects. All students should be designing a revision schedule to support them with effective revision and time management. Monday 4th June is the last Independent Learning Day of the academic year. All secondary students will be expected to use the day to revise at home for their forthcoming exams, except for those who are required to come in for an examination on that day. With all best wishes,

We are pleased to welcome the following new staff to Isaac Newton Academy Esther Fidlin

Art, Design & Technology Technician I am excited to join the Isaac Newton Academy and its rising ADT department. I have always had a passion for art, studying three-dimensional design at BA degree level and, most recently, sculpture at Master’s degree level. I have exhibited my art work across London & the South east of England. My work has been published in London’s Metro newspaper & The Guardian Newspaper. I enjoy the learning environment and want to further my experience within education. Interacting with individuals in a creative way holds many benefits; it makes the students understand themselves and the world around them, improving their motor skills and other abilities. In addition, it can be seen as therapeutic and generate interests and passions throughout their life. I feel very welcomed by everyone at Isaac Newton Academy and look forward to the exciting new challenges.

Beth Robson

Head of Art, Design & Technology I am absolutely thrilled to be joining INA as the new Head of ADT. I have lots of ideas and a clear vision for the department and I know KS3 students are extremely excited to have Art, Design and Technology lessons reintroduced to their timetable. I will also be re-introducing Textiles as this is my subject specialism, having gained a degree in Fashion Knitwear Design and Knitted Textiles. I discovered my passion for textiles and knitting during

my Art Foundation year at Newcastle College and this led me to complete my degree and produce a collection of six knitted outfits for our final year collection catwalk show. I am originally from Newcastle and studied my degree at Nottingham Trent University. After graduating, I worked abroad in Copenhagen, Denmark, for two years working for a Danish knitwear company before moving back to London to complete my teacher training. I worked in the Art and Technology Faculty at Ark Burlington Danes for the past 3 years and I am, therefore, familiar with Ark schools and their ethos. I live locally in the Redbridge area and look forward to working with local students and engaging more with the local community.

Muqaddasa Iram Chaudhry

Cover Supervisor/Learning Assistant I am very excited to be a part of Isaac Newton Academy as a cover supervisor, as it equips every student with the knowledge, learning power and character necessary for success. I have previously worked in three schools and I really enjoy working with secondary school children, as I have a passion for teaching. I have quickly adapted to Isaac Newton’s Academy and the principles and values that lie at its core and I see myself as a key staff member who enhances students’ learning when their class teachers are absent. My aim is to make sure that students’ learning is not affected, despite their teachers not being there, to maintain a positive learning atmosphere and to help develop them into independent and responsible individuals. A bit about myself: I was the first student to get an A* in Law at A-levels in 2010 nationally. I graduated with a LLB degree from Queen Mary University of London, School of Law. Once I graduated, I worked in the same 4 May 2018

secondary school I went to as a child for two years which was one of the proudest moments of my life, as I worked alongside my own teachers and Headteacher. It has so far been a wonderful experience working at INA, as the staff and students are very friendly and respectful and the Academy is organised and structured effectively.

Work Experience Information Evening Thursday 24th May          5:30-6:30pm Parents and Year 10 students (in uniform) are expected to attend the work experience information evening in order to ensure their son/ daughter is prepared and ready to complete their placement from 2nd-6th July 2018.

SCHOOL ATTENDANCE Dear Parents/Carers Isaac Newton Academy works closely with the Redbridge Education Welfare Service. Regular and punctual attendance at school is both a legal requirement and essential for pupils to maximise their educational and social opportunities. In law an offence occurs if a parent/carer fails to secure a child’s regular attendance at a school at which they are a registered pupil and that absence is not authorised by the school. It has come to our attention that an increasing number of parents are taking their children out of school during school term time. In accordance with Redbridge attendance strategy, these absences are unauthorised, and Penalty Notices can be issued: “A Headteacher should only consider authorising an absence during term time where an application has been made in advance and where s/he is satisfied that there are exceptional or special circumstance to justify the request.” The DfE(2013) now state that leave of absence requested for holidays should not be granted.

Attendance and Punctuality At Isaac Newton Academy every student is expected to maintain 100% attendance. Each form group across each year are competing to ensure they are top of the attendance league table for their year. Please ensure your child catches up with missed learning. Our pastoral and teaching staff are working hard to ensure students are taking responsibility for going to collect missed learning from their classroom teachers. Punctuality All students need to be present on site and ready for line up no later than 8.25am each day and as such we advise students to be through the school gates (side entrance and southern entrance) no later than 8.20am. The form with the highest attendance at the end of every term is awarded the attendance trophy. Each week we will update you with the year to date attendance figures as seen below.

INA Sixth Form Students In the summer INA celebrated our first GCSE results. The results were so strong that we were ranked amongst the very top schools in the entire country – a huge achievement! The students above are celebrating on the day that they received their results. Of course, their success is a result of lots of different factors. However, one key reason they were so successful is because of the revising and practising they developed throughout Year 7 to Year 11.

TOP TIPS: Students

• Plan time to revise and practice before assessments and performances. • When revising, make sure you are clear on what you need to know for each subject. • Create a revision timetable so you know what you have to revise and when. • Use your techniques from the revision sessions you have completed. • Meet INA’s expectations of time spent on I/L, reading and your musical instrument. • Use the music practice rooms, ICT room and library at lunchtime and after school.

Parents

• If you know that your son/daughter has a test or exam coming up, ensure that they have a quiet place to revise and support their learning by testing them. • Listen to your son/daughter playing his/her instrument, reading aloud or watch them practising a sports technique. • Talk to your child about what makes effective practice. • Support your child in a healthy revision schedule which includes scheduled breaks and healthy food

Elanah is revising for her GCSEs and, like all of the Year 11s, is doing a great job. As part of her geography revision Elanah has made some condensed notes for each topic that she has covered. These notes are formatted in a very visual and creative way so they are memorable.

Sakinah and Eashar played key parts in the school production of Bugsy Malone. As lead characters, they had to put in countless hours of practice to learn their lines. This was very demanding but it was well worth it, as the production was such a success. Great example of practise in action.

Year 11 Study Leave - Summer 2018 The exam season starts on Monday 14th May and ends on Friday 15th June. Half term is 28th May – 1st June. Normal lessons for all students will continue until and including Friday 11th May. From Monday 14th May until Friday 25th 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 upcoming exams. The teacher will supervise and ensure that there is an atmosphere conducive to private study. From Monday 4th 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 15th June. We are planning to hold a pm Year 11 assembly on that day. Mr Crowther-Green, Assistant Principal

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 Every week we ask teachers to nominate students who have been role models by carrying out good deeds for others and the INA community.
