PROPOSED RELOCATION OF ARCHBISHOP McGRATH CATHOLIC SCHOOL

In December 2009, the Welsh Assembly Government gave approval for the relocation of Archbishop McGrath Catholic High School to the new site in Brackla. Work began on February 1st 2010 and was completed on August 12th 2011. We are grateful to parents for their financial contribution to the costs of the new building, which have to be met by the governing body and parents of the school. 2.

NUMBER ON ROLL / STAFFING

The number of pupils on roll as at September 2010 was 719 with a staffing complement of Head, 1 Deputy Head, 3 Assistant Heads and 39 Assistant Teachers: 31 full time and 8 part time. 3.

ATTENDANCE LEVELS

All schools are required to publish their attendance rates. The authorised attendance for pupils for 2010-2011 is 91.35%. The authorised absence was 6.7% and the unauthorised absence was 2.0%. Our thanks to parents for their cooperation in notifying all pupils’ absences as required for the maintenance of school records. 4.

EXAMINATIONS

A copy of the public examination results for the school is appended as Appendix A for the summer examinations 2011, together with the LEA and Wales analysis of 2011 results.

Special Needs Provision 2010 to 2011 The ALN register makes up 20% of the pupils in school. There are 99 boys and 47 girls on the register. Boys form a greater part of the register. From last year there has been an increase in boys and a decrease in girls. However during the second half of the year there were a few changes as the SEN register developed into an Additional Learning Needs Document. -3-


During the year three sets of parents started to proceed with statements for their children. These take time and two are on-going. One of those, is related to a pupil who is out of our LEA. We have 15 pupils who have hour of support from the LEA ranging from 5 hours to 30 hours. When a pupil has 30 hours worth of support in theory the pupil has to be watched every moment in school. The amount of pupils with provision doubled in year 7. This difference is not calculated using ALN statistics at present. Assessment In the learning support classes all pupils were assessed using either or more of CAT’s, BKSB and Basic Skills Agency Assessments. These results will be placed on Moodle as is The Additional Learning Needs Register. This is because as from September 2011 all pupils will be in mainstream with support. GCSE Results 2011 100% had GCSE in English, Maths and Science. 100% had GCSE in English Language. 18% had 5 or more GCSE A* - C 94% had 5 or more GCSE A* - G. The Department’s target of 90% of pupils on the Learning Support Register achieved GCSE’s in English, Maths and Science has been achieved. 90% at A* to G has been achieved. There was a 7% increase in 5 or more GCSE A* to G and a 5% increase in GCSE A* - G. Year 9 SATs Results 2011 English: achieved a Level 4 or above. 2003 – 76% 2004 – 76% 2005 – 84% 2006 – 94% 2007 – 92% 2008 – 79% 2009 – 90% 2010 – 68% 2011 - 40% Maths: achieved a Level 4 or above. 2003 – 68% 2004 – 81% 2005 – 77% 2006 – 64% 2007 – 64% 2008 – 89% 2009 – 75% 2010 – 77% 2011 – 40%

The results are down greatly however, this is now due to moderation and the staff appreciating that the results at the end of key stage 3 feed into the expectation at GCSE. TEST RESULTS Throughout the year pupils from the learning support department have been moving between mainstream and Learning Support. From last year the pupils on the Learning Support Register have found achieving level 4 and above difficult. This is being addressed by senior management as the support structure in school is being addressed. Year 7, 2010-2011 – 11 pupils started in Learning Support and there were 14 by the end of the year. These extra pupils were from other countries and move into mainstream after one or two terms. In Literacy and Numeracy we have for the first time added a WT column because the pupils are so weak. Reading 57% of pupils were capable of achieving a reading age of 9 or above. This is 9% down from last year.

In literacy two pupils came in unable to read and had limited recording ability. One refused to work without support and a true recording was impossible due to their complete refusal to work without help. This pupil spent most of year 7 in the PRU. Spelling 43% of pupils have a spelling age 9 or above. This is down on last year’s intake by 17% chiefly because two pupils were so poor in their ability. Maths Level WT 1 0

English as an Additional Language We continue to embrace pupils who come to this school whose parents are from other countries. We have a support officer Anna Ghoda who helps with translations and was involved in meetings on a number of occasions aiding with interpretation of situations. All pupils are on a Language Acquisition Record [LARS] which is sent off to the Welsh Office for funding. Pupils in year 11 continue to complete a GCSE in Polish and their results are exceptional. Four pupils gained A’s two with A*. 2010 - 2011 The EAL numbers are as follows: 50 in total.

Basic Skills Quality Mark In 2008 the school had received the Quality Mark award and the Government has since introduced the Basic Skills Quality Standard to be more demanding on schools. These requirements expected a wider approach in school, some resources were provided by the government and guidelines were produced. The five standards were: analysis of the assessment of basic skills, a development plan for improving literacy and numeracy standards, the use of qualified staff to deal with issues, effective planning, monitoring and reviewing in order to, evaluate the impact of the school on improving Basic Skills. Over the last two years the school, headed by Delyth Case, has worked to make the New Quality Mark an integral part of the school’s drive towards Building Learning Power [BLP]. Assessments showed a need to raise literacy and numeracy standards and an Additional Learning Needs [ALN] register was created. From the Government’s match funding we were provided with a full time PreVent Learning Support Officer Mrs Teresa Ward. Her role in school has been huge, she collates all the data in respect to who requires intervention, negotiates between outside agencies and SNSA staff to bring about the necessary interventions. HODs have included within their schemes of work ways to support Basic Skills. Catchup [literacy] and Spotlight [numeracy] saw new SNSA staff ‘in house’ trained by Mrs Geater. The Student Assistance Programme [SAP] using LEA staff Ms Sian Thom, Ms Kelly Meek with school staff and Emotional Literacy Support Assistance [ELSA] trained Mr Mike Horler provide weekly help to pupils to access the curriculum and facilitates learning by inhibiting social and emotional barriers. 7.

THE IMPACT OF TEACHERS’ PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT ON STANDARDS, 2010-2011

The 2010-2011 School Development addressed key areas of school life under the headings of the Estyn Inspection Framework. These focused on improving standards of learning in all key stages and, more specifically, on developing the use assessment for learning and tracking pupil progress, particularly between phases. CPD opportunities were provided in school for all subjects in meetings with Primary school colleagues, which included the moderation and standardisation of childrens’ work across the phases. All Heads of Department attended relevant Examination Board training. Other training events took place in school, particularly in terms of sharing good practice in teaching and learning. There was also significant support provided for identified departments by the Local Authority’s Schools’ Advisory service, ESIS. IMPACT ON STANDARDS The 2011 examination results continue to show a rise in standards. The tables below show that the school is performing higher than the Local Authority and Welsh averages in all indicators.

PROGRESS ON POST INSPECTION ACTION PLAN

NB: The post-inspection action plan targets have been met or incorporated into subsequent school development plans. RECOMMENDATION: Continue to improve standards and examination results generally. The Learning Group continues to develop its role within the school and has extended the cross curricular projects throughout key stage three. Pupils have been introduced to an exciting range of learning and extra curricular activities within the chosen theme. Parents have been encouraged to participate in the learning experience by attending the end of project exhibition. The curriculum projects provide a platform for introducing a range of thinking skills strategies in the school. The learning group has disseminated materials to assist teachers in delivering this area. Assessment for learning (AFL) has been identified as a key focus within the school in the school and departmental development plans. Mrs A. Keller has provided research and training for staff in this key area. A number of staff shared good practice, providing INSET and exemplar material. All departments audited the provision of AFL and Mrs Keller met with all subject leaders to discuss areas for development and set targets. A programme of self-evaluation takes place every year. The school has developed the use of pupil voice. The school council has been actively involved in the consultation process for the new school. All departments have been asked to build on the good practice of subject leaders involved in the INSET training provided on pupil voice. RECOMMENDATION: Continue to improve standards in D&T at KS3. The Department continued to work with the ESIS Adviser for Technology and the leadership group line manager. A new head of department was appointed, whose key focus is on addressing shortcomings identified in the inspection. The department audited provision of assessment for learning and developed strategies for this key area. During 2010-2011 the department continued to receive support from senior staff and the Local Authority Advisory Service. External examination results in 2011 continue to show improvement. RECOMMENDATION: Continue to improve standards in Science at Key Stages 3 and 4 and in the Sixth Form. The Science Department is now one of our top performing departments, whose results are consistently above local, national and family averages. RECOMMENDATION: Increase the time available for senior managers and develop their role as a team. The appointment of 4 members of the Leadership Group was completed during 2010-2011. The time required to fulfil their roles and work as a team has been met. RECOMMENDATION: To improve the quality of planning by aligning more closely self evaluation with development planning at departmental and whole school level. Departments have updated their self evaluations and produced their Departmental Development Plans based on the whole school format. Departmental development plans reflect a number of key whole school issues such as AFL in line with whole school planning and self evaluation. Heads of department have submitted to the Head teacher analyses of examination results. - 10 -

PROGRESS ON POST INSPECTION ACTION PLAN – RELIGIOUS EDUCATION

RECOMMENDATION: Further development of a range of strategies to enable students to be more effective learners and to challenge the more able. In addition to Archdiocesan training, the school has continued to provide significant training on the Learning agenda and the skills framework. Strategies suggested from these INSETs have been incorporated into classroom practice. A member of the department is on the school’s Learning Group and the department has been very involved in the whole school special studies on Slavery, Astronomy and the Holocaust. These projects encourage staff to use a wide range of strategies in the classroom and to continue with these developments after the projects have ended. Class observations and exercise book reviews, held throughout the year, have shown that the department is using a wider range of strategies to help students be more effective learners and to challenge the more able. This last group has also been targeted in the redesign of assignments for levelling. The revised assignments provide an opportunity for the more able to reach the higher levels of attainment. This element continues to be a focus in the departmental development plan 2011-2012. RECOMMENDATION: Further develop assessment for learning to fully inform learners about the quality of their work and empower them to improve. The department has continued to meet regularly, including with the Deputy Headteacher, Mrs Keller, to review assessment for learning strategies in RE. This has been supported by Archdiocesan INSET on the new NBRIA Levels of Attainment. Discussions and developments have focused on four key areas: • • • •

Assessment for learning Peer assessment Self-assessment Pupil voice

All aspects of the department’s assessment for learning policy have been reviewed. Agreement has been reached on all aspects. A ‘pupil voice’ was held on learning in RE and the insights gained have been integrated into the department’s provision. Class observations, exercise book reviews and assessment monitoring exercises indicate that all members of the department are using assessment for learning strategies in their classroom practice and annotation of pupils’ work, and that they are incorporating peer and self-assessment into assessment strategies. This element continues to be a focus in the departmental development plan 2010-2011. RECOMMENDATION: Consider timetabling and other strategies to maximise the number of Sixth Formers attending General RE.

- 11 -


The following changes were made in 2010-2011: •

The General RE programme was incorporated into, and indeed became a key element of, the Welsh Baccalaureate. This continued to be a compulsory course in 2010 – 2011 for all Year 12 students, which ensured that attendance was close to 100% in General RE.

The course tutor has attended Archdiocesan meetings on the General RE programme, which has ensured that new learning and teaching strategies continue to be incorporated into the programme. A ‘Pupil Voice’ meeting with the Year 12 Welsh Baccalaureate students indicated a very high level of satisfaction with the course. RECOMMENDATION: Look at good practice in Catholic Secondary Schools in Wales to identify ways of allocating 10% curriculum time to RE in KS3. Implement when possible. The Deputy Headteacher and Head of RE have discussed this with colleagues in other Catholic secondary schools in the Archdiocese. All but one school allocate 8% of curriculum time to RE in KS3 (2 hours per week). The one school that has allocated 10% of curriculum time to KS3 has done so by constructing a flexible curriculum involving PSHE and Welsh. This issue has been discussed by the SMT and it was decided that the current structure best fits the school needs at present. Any changes would have a detrimental effect on other aspects of the curriculum. One development that may have an impact here is the provision of retreats at KS3. During 2010 – 2011, a Year 9 residential retreat took place at St Cassian’s Centre, Kintbury, and further retreats are planned for Years 7 and 8. These will not only increase the total amount of time allocated to RE for these years but will also have a significant impact on the students’ spiritual development. The development of the Lower School retreat programme remains a focus in the development plan for 2011-2012. 11.

SCHOOL POLICIES AND STRATEGIES

These are reviewed as required and the governing body approves all new policies as submitted. The current approved policies may be viewed at http://moodle.bridgend.gov.uk/archbishopmcgrath. 12.

SECURITY ARRANGEMENTS

In addition to those already in place, additional CCTV was installed to cover the entrances to the school by siting cameras in the building, facing external doors. 13.

THE RELIGIOUS AND SPIRITUAL LIFE OF THE SCHOOL

As in previous years, during 2010-2011, the school continued to celebrate Mass each Friday, thanks to the commitment of the deanery priests. With their support, the school also had special services and Masses at key times of the year such as Christmas and Easter. A Mass of Remembrance was also held during November. The Archbishop of Cardiff attended during July, to celebrate the ‘Welcome’ Mass, for pupils of the feeder Primary Schools. During Advent and Lent, others services were held for pupils, such as Reconciliation. These were offered after prayerful assemblies, where pupils were invited to reflect on their lives and relationships with God and their neighbours. Retreats continued to be offered to our Years 10, 11 and 6th Forms, at various times of the year. - 12 -


Through their music and singing ministry, students have supported many events within the deanery during the year, including school, parish and Confirmation Masses. Every school day begins with an act of worship, either within classes or as part of an assembly. Many classes were also given the opportunity for meditation during the year, in the school chapel. The school continued to support charities such as the Welsh National Pilgrimage to Lourdes, BBC Children in Need and CAFOD. We thank God for our pupils because they continue to enthusiastically support and enhance the spiritual and religious life of our school. 14.

SPORTING AIMS

The aim of the school is to promote the normal growth and development of each pupil relative to their capacity. A wide range of movement is provided in order that the pupils’ vocabulary of movement is not restricted. Pupils are encouraged to develop skills in chosen specialised forms of movement and to sustain an appreciation of physical movement through observation, exploration, analysis and evaluation. Whilst encouraging individual determination, pupils are helped to develop awareness of others and to cooperate with others. Pupils are helped to increase the awareness of their own capabilities whilst appreciating individual difficulties. It is important to develop a knowledge of safety procedures and to understand safe practice, including the need for rules and regulations. Pupils are encouraged to continue with active participation in physical activities when they leave school. We aim to enable pupils to experience creative expression through movement, focus on self assessment, self management and problem solving in a variety of situations. We promote efficient movement through a strong and healthy body and aim to develop an all-round appreciation of the dangers of not exercising and abuse of the body. Recognising the stress of modern living, we teach about exercise and its effect on the body and the importance of a balanced diet in order to develop the ability to cope. 15.

MUSIC

2010-11 was another successful year for the Music Department with a number of our pupils achieving County and National recognition. •

Two more very successful concerts were held in December and April. There were numerous solos and ensembles from the pupils and a memorable finale with the Senior Orchestra’s performance of ‘Raiders of the Lost Arc’ and ‘Michael Bublé’s Cry Me A River’. All who were in attendance will remember two remarkable evenings.

Catherine Mainwaring again successfully auditioned for the National Youth Choir of Wales. I make the point again that we are the only school in Wales to have consistently had at least one representative in this prestigious choir every year since 1995. Connie Osgood-Finney and Kamila Godzinska both achieved places in the National Youth Training Choir.

The number of musicians taking part in our school weekly Masses continues to grow, involving pupils from years 7 to 13.

The school show ‘Black Gold’ was performed in Maesteg Town Hall in February to sell-out audiences. This was an incredibly sophisticated project and our pupils did us proud in three fantastic performances.

Many pupils again passed Associated Board music exams. A special mention goes to Lucy Keller, Jacob Curtis and Isabelle Rosenberg in passing their Grade 8 exams in Violin and Jonathan Pare in passing his Grade 8 Rock (Drum) School. Yet again the school continues to be the main contributor of pupils who successfully audition for the Four Counties Orchestra. This year 10 of our pupils took part in concerts in Cardiff, Merthyr and Bridgend.

Also, 20 of our pupils ranging from years 8 to 13 represented the County in a concert in St David’s Hall, Cardiff with the BBC Orchestra of Wales. They performed the world premiere of Karl Jenkins new piece which was transmitted on Radio 3.

Huge congratulations went to Lucy Keller who gained the highest mark for the WJEC A’Level Music examination within England and Wales.

ACCESSIBILITY PLAN

Improving Access to the Curriculum School access arrangements are to: 1. provide access to the full curriculum 2. use 1:1 support assistants to aid those with wheelchairs, crutches and physical mobility problems 3. change 1:1 support staff’s timetable to aid the above and provide a lift key 4. create emergency exit procedures 5. make special arrangements during the examination period 6. use scribes, readers and any other arrangement where applicable as noted in the Joint Council for Qualifications documentation 7. enable staff to make reasonable adjustments and special considerations by working collaboratively with the examination’s officer to adjust to the yearly changes in regulations and guidance The school also: 1. develops helping pupils with anxiety disorders through ELSA, SAPs and the Pre-VENT Programme* 2. provides coloured overlays and computer screens for pupils with dyslexia 3. gives support from SNSAs during breaks and lunchtime giving pupils the opportunity to speak discretely if they are having problems in lessons 4. provides ‘in house’ training to newer staff from the more experienced staff. 5. gives EAL pupils Key Stage 3 Pre-VENT programmes access. 6. develops a new structure enabling learning coaches to be in ‘B’ classes in year 7,8 and 9 the majority of time 7. provides medication and a discrete eating place to pupils with specific conditions e.g. ADHD, tourettes 8. makes allowances for pupils who are finding coming to school problematic by creating individual programmes and working closely with the B2P LEA outreach service, the educational Psychologist and CAMs to get pupils back to school as quickly as possible

Ongoing.


Improving the Physical Environment of the School All aspects of this area is monitored on a continuous basis by the Headteacher, SMT and Health and Safety Officer. These staff are also the key personnel involved in ensuring that progress is made on these issues. The Governors, Buildings and Health and Safety Committee receive a termly report from the Headteacher and will make their own inspections of the site and buildings. The school occupies a small site with six separate demountable buildings. In 1999 a new teaching block was completed which includes a Music Suite, Sixth Form Common Room and teaching rooms for Modern Foreign Languages, Welsh and Art. This building was designed with wheelchair access in mind and a professionally designed disabled toilet has been incorporated into the block. From 1994 – 2001 the school accommodated two pupils who used electric wheelchairs to get to lessons and this gave us the experience of providing adequate provision for wheelchair users. The boys’ toilet was converted to provide a disabled toilet and where necessary pupils were taught on the ground floor in all subjects on the curriculum. The disabled toilet in the new teaching block is accessible to pupils of either sex. The main difficulty on the site is the poor condition of some of the walkways and paths which could present a problem for independent access. In January 2010, work began on the new school building, which is planned to be in use by September 2011.
