A

s Spring hastens towards Summer, Year 11 are in the last weeks of their preparation for their final GCSE exams. Although subject areas will cover revision within lessons, it is vitally important that Year 11 make the most of all after -school revision classes and spend quality time at home ensuring that they are in command of all the material they need to learn. These last few weeks can be stressful for Year 11 as they have the anticipation not only of the exams but also of the challenge of leaving the security of school behind them and setting forth into the adult world. The determination they show now in their revision will reap its own reward in the grades they gain as a result : grades which are now even more important to their future than ever before. Year 9 have also been looking forward and following the Information and Parents' Evenings, the Option preferences Willingdon Community School

are all in. We are very pleased that once again we are offering a rich and varied Key Stage 4 curriculum which encompasses ( as we have always done) all the components of the English Baccalaureate favoured by the Coalition government as well as a broader curriculum which allows students to follow their strengths and interests. The creative talents of our students were showcased with great success in the production of “Little Shop of Horrors” which took place at the end of Term 3 and which delighted packed audiences over three nights. Miss Pester and her team have set themselves a high standard indeed. Sunday 27th March saw the Eastbourne Youth’s Got Talent Final which we have won for the last three years. On this occasion all our three representatives, Stephen McLoughlin, Mia Elliott and Jack Unsworth performed magnificently but it was too Contact 128 March 2011


much to hope for four wins in a row! Student participation has been high on our agenda this term, with students contributing not only creatively but in sports and through events such as the very professional BBC Newsday produced by Year 8 students and available to view on the website as well as fundraising for Unicef, Hawassa and Red Nose day. The Coalition promotion of the concept of the “Big Society� encourages further and more active student participation in the local and national communities and we are also actively seeking adult volunteers to give students regular support as mentors, or to help out with a one-off session such as interview practice. Several agencies who have in the past worked with some of our students to support them with emotional and social problems have had their funding cut and we are therefore hoping to find volunteers who could donate their time in this way. There are further details of how you could help us later in this newsletter. Self reliance will be a recurring theme of our School Development work over the next few years and it is an area where Willingdon Community School

we already have substantial strengths as evidenced in our Higher Performing Specialist School status and our Leading Edge Partnership work. We have increasingly looked to the skills of our own staff to deliver Professional Development not just to our staff but also to other secondary schools and similarly our ICT support department runs not only our own extensive network of 600 computers but supports another local secondary school and several primary schools, providing a good quality service at a reasonable cost to our partner schools while also bringing in valuable income for our school. Thus, we can find opportunities within the challenges of cuts to further develop our existing strengths and shape the future of the school. We say farewell at the end of Term 4 to Deborah Birkett who has made a well-regarded contribution to the English department for the past three years and we will all miss her dedication and commitment to her classes. She is pursuing her teaching career in the field of adult education. Sue Dixon

Engineering Challenge On the 28th January 2011, four year 7 students (Deanna Cornell, Enya Costin, Will Read and Jake Davidson) represented the school in a engineering challenge at St Bedes. This was for year 6/7 pupils from all Eastbourne Schools. This year's challenge was for the various teams to create and run their own business. The aim was to make the largest profit possible from making and selling a range of paper products. We were told this during the briefing where we were also told to appoint roles in the group. We all decided Will was to be the manager his job was to make pitches to the two entreprenuers and keep us on task – Deanna was appointed designer and had to decide on the final products look– I was manufacturer and had to make sure we got the products created in time so we could get more money by submitting the products in time – and Jake was the accountant, therefore dealt with the money. The teams were all given £2, which meant we could buy paper to create the desired product. But before we got underway with the making we had to decide on the company name… We decided on WEDJ, Which stood for Will, Enya, Deanna, and Jake. To get our companies to be publicised the teams created a small and a large poster advertising products. The first task was set: to make a range of cards. WEDJ made a set of birthday cards, valentine, and get well soon cards. We also together made three promises ; “All our products are unique and handmade,” “We work well in a team so our personal lives don’t affect our working environment,” Willingdon Community School

Contact 128 March 2011


“We enjoy working together so our enthusiasm was passed onto our goods”. Although it wasn't quite what any of us had expected we came away having learnt that winning is not always everything. WEDJ made a good profit but didn't make quite enough to come in the top three. We learnt how to work well in a team under pressure and came away better for our experience. Miss Bolton

Author visits new LRC Jill Hucklesby visited the new LRC on Friday 11th March to launch the new Teen library card for East Sussex libraries. She spoke about her work for television and her most recent books for teenagers, Deeper than Blue, Last Kiss of the Butterfly and If I could Fly. The session with Year 7 students was very lively with the students asking lots of interesting questions. Jill left some copies of her books for sale in the library at the reduced price of £5.00, with some copies still available. Please see Mrs Pellett if you would like to buy one.

New Community Youth Shelter in Willingdon

success at jointly securing funding to make our ideas happen. This shelter is one such example.

On Wednesday 9th February Willingdon and Jevington Parish Council invited members of our 3EEES student council group to attend and formally open the new Community/Youth Shelter. The E’s stand for extended services, engagement and equality and this is a new group that primarily looks at community issues. We have been working for some time with Willingdon and Jevington Parish council on youth issues and have had some considerable Willingdon Community School

Laurence Dengate-Row and Megan Coope took the lead on this particular issue and were therefore chosen to cut the ribbon to declare the shelter open. Youth Forum Councillors John Pritchett, Fran Pritchett and Linda Francis were joined at the opening by other Councillors, police representatives, members of the Safer Wealden Partnership and the Sussex Association of Local Councils - who both gave

grants towards the cost of the shelter, and local residents and business representatives. The Community Youth Shelter project is seen as a significant achievement and an example of the Parish Council working in partnership with both the youth and the older generation to provide a useful amenity for all ages. The 3EEEs group continues to meet regularly with our councilors to work on new projects. Mrs Brown

For the first time in four years Willingdon did not win Eastbourne's Youths Got Talent competition. However, Stephen McLoughlin, Jack Unsworth and Mia Elliot, were outstanding performers on the night, and were pipped to the post by a choir from Hailsham Community College. Well done to all our creative performers taking part in both legs of the auditions. R.King

Thanks for your patience...

A big thank you to all parents who drive near the school for your patience while the buses have been diverted due to the road works. This has caused a lot of congestion at times. I’d like to thank the duty staff in particular for starting their duties even earlier and taking such care with the safety of the students crossing the road between the traffic. I think they’ll be glad to see an end to the hi-visibility jackets! Lastly the students themselves have behaved impeccably, following instructions and showing consideration for others.

Safer Schools Survey Last November we took part in the East Sussex Safer Schools survey which asked students to give their views and report on their experiences of bullying online and anonymously. Our data was then compared to the East Sussex average and in all cases we did better. Our students consistently reported less bullying than students in other schools and they also felt that we dealt well with bullying and listened to their views. We do ascribe our success in reducing bullying partly to our SEAL work in Years 7, 8, and 9 which has helped students become more emotionally literate and more aware of how they relate to others. The Personal, Learning and Thinking skills curriculum has significantly improved students’ ability to work together positively. However, our students did still report that they had seen or experienced bullying and not all of them felt that we dealt with it properly or that we took them seriously. These are obviously areas we need to work on and we will be reporting on developments in our Anti-bullying work in future editions of Contact. Can I take this opportunity to remind students and parents of the form you can use to report bullying which is available on the website. Do contact your child’s Tutor if you have any concerns. We are very pleased by the very positive results we have from the Safer Schools survey ( the full results are available on the school website) but we are very aware that there is always room for improvement as even just one child suffering from bullying is still one child too many.

D. A. T. E. Drugs, Alcohol & Tobacco Education Forum

On the evening of the 16th March, Willingdon held its latest parent forum on Drugs, Alcohol and Tobacco Education. The aim of the forum was to inform our parents of the curriculum students receive and also to answer any questions parents had with regard to this sensitive important area. PC Kate Brookman (our school liason officer) also attended and explained the local scene with regards to drug use. It was felt to be a very positive evening by all who attended. Please check the calendar to see when the next forum is. If you do have any questions on D. A. T. E. please refer to our policy on the website, or contact, Miss Amos at school.

Volunteering Opportunities We are looking for parents who might be willing to give up an hour of their time once a week to mentor a young person and help them with issues like organisation, self presentation, social skills or building confidence. You wouldn’t be teaching or expected to go into classes but you would meet your young person over a period of time in order to focus on a particular area. We wouldn’t be expecting you to have any specialist knowledge or counselling skills but to be able to support a young person by listening to them and helping them. We would give you training and offer ongoing support and we do believe you would find this role very satisfying . At present some of our students receive mentoring from a range of different agencies but alas much of this will go as a result of the cuts and we are therefore looking for other ways of providing this support. We wouldn’t be able to pay you any expenses, unfortunately. As you’d be working with young people one to one you would need to agree to have a CRB check. If you would like to help in some way but a regular commitment is too much, we’d also be interested in volunteers who could come in as a one-off to help Year 10 and 11 with interview skills. If you might be interested in helping us in either of these ways, please contact me at school . Sue Dixon Willingdon Community School

A group of 4 Year 8 students were selected this term to prepare an exciting project: teach a cooking lesson in French to a class of year 7! The project was run over a few weeks after school so that students could research and prepare their resources for the day. Congratulations to Jessica Burtenshaw, Willow Drewett, Chloe Fogg and Shona Stark who led this year’s first French food skills project and made their lesson a real success. They took initiative and prepared a fantastic lesson: the year 7 class had the opportunity to learn French vocabulary, to participate in several French activities and to taste the delicious French croissants au jambon they had made. The comments after the lesson were all very positive., students and teachers alike were really impressed by their hard work. Félicitations les filles! Madame Kubinec

BBC School Report 2011

On Thursday 24th March, students from 81En1 took part in the BBC School Report. The aim of the day was to produce a news broadcast to a fixed deadline. Students learnt about copyright and legal responsibilities as well as how to write informatively. In January, the class began preparing the skills they would need for the actual day. This included research potential stories, working in teams and practising using equipment. “The skill I most used during the day was being a team member. Since it was a group activity, we were not really ‘independent learners’ but ‘inter-dependent learners’, as we helped each other along the way.” Ellie 81En1 student

“The project helped me to develop my English skills by making me work to tight schedules and checking information made sense. It has also made me more confident in class and in other lessons as well, not just English.” Harvey 81En1 student You can view our contribution on the BBC School Report 2011 via the BBC website on: http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/school_ report/default.stm or via the link on the school website. By 81En1

Throughout the day, students were involved in a variety of activities including; researching, writing, filming, photographing, interviewing and editing. Willingdon Community School

Eastbourne RTC News Update In October of last year Willingdon gained the prestigious accolade of becoming an Apple Regional Training Centre. Many free training events have been delivered since then to colleagues and parents across the county on different aspects of the Apple world Our most recent training session took place at Deans Place in Alfriston where Mr Wilson and Mr Healey led a session on audio production for the county’s ICT curriculum leaders. The aim was to present an alternative platform to PC for the compilation of audio projects across the curriculum. The session focussed on the creation of a radio advert for Red Nose Day and a ringtone to help promote the event. The use of live instruments and voiceovers were also explored. Good fun was had by all and we look forward to being inviting back. The Eastbourne RTC at Willingdon’s next event is on Thursday 7th April when the whole staff including TAs and student teachers from Polegate Primary will be coming to take part in an afternoon session on iPhoto, iMovie and GarageBand. There will be may future events which will allow parents and students of the school to get involved. Mr Wilson Mr Healey

Careers Fair

Willingdon Community School held it’s second Careers Fair on March 7th and it was open to all year 9/10/11 students to take a look around at different stands to find out information for their own future careers either for college/university or to even joining the forces. The companies that attended this event were Sussex Downs College the subject areas being, Performing Arts (Dance), Catering/Hospitality, ICT, Construction, Guidance, Childcare, Media/Film, Travel & Tourism, Sports, Hairdressing, Beauty, Apprenticeship Information. Other employers that also attended this event were the Royal Airforce, Navy, Army, Military Prep College, Glenisters Florist, JTL, Hotchkiss, Barwells Solicitors, Police, Sussex University, NHS Information, Plumpton College, Connexions, Haine & Son and Chase Vets. The atmosphere in the hall was buzzing especially from the students who seemed to really enjoy the event and took full advantage on utilizing all the stalls that were available to them to find out information. The day was a great success and the feed back has been really positive from both students/staff and employers. What’s my Line On Thursday 17th March five employers were invited in for the whole of the year 9 students to guess what they did for their jobs. The year was split with some year 9 students asking the questions and then it being opened to all to try and guess. This proved very positive with the students and also again this gave them an insight into what they would need, qualification wise, to undertake such roles. The employers invited in were Eastbourne Borough Council (Head of Tourism) Lawson Lewis Solicitors (Practice Manager) University of Brighton (Podiatrist) NHS Dental Services( Performance Manager) Southern Water(Process Support Manager). This was another positive activity enjoyed by students and employers alike. Jill Thomas, Vocational Work Co-ordinator Willingdon Community School

NETBALL

The Year 7 team played very well against the Eastbourne College Year 9s, forcing them work for every goal that was scored. At the end of the first game, it was 9-4 to Eastbourne, but the girls didn’t let that phase them. They went in with their heads high, committing to every pass and interception. On the final whistle, the score was 11-3 to Eastbourne. The girls should be very proud of themselves for playing a team with more experience, who are also two years older! The Year 9 team played Eastbourne College’s A and B teams, where their commitment to training this year, shone through. Although both games were very close, the girls played with adaptability and team work when placed in different positions to their preference . The final scores were 5-7 and 6-7 to Willingdon. Well played girls!! Both teams are through to the Sussex Schools Netball Finals, taking place on 29-3-11 in East Grinstead. We wish them all the best!
