Mission Statement

Admission Criteria

St Angela’s school is part of the Ursuline tradition which has as its hallmark the pursuit of the highest standards possible in education. Through our curriculum and community life we seek to meet the needs of the whole person and to enable all to achieve their full potential. We offer to all the challenge of building up and living in a Catholic Christian community in which all members are equally valued. We share with St Angela a commitment to the service of young people which will empower them to play their full part in society.

St Angela’s Ursuline School is an 11-18 voluntary-aided girls’ school founded by the Ursuline Sisters in 1862 and now under the trusteeship of the Diocese of Brentwood. The primary aim of the school is the education of Catholic children in accordance with its trust deed and St Angela’s seeks at all times to foster the growth of pupils’ understanding and appreciation of their faith.

In the light of this we aim to: l

recognise and respond sensitively to the talents and needs of every student and provide the most appropriate means of developing their full potential; l ensure that equality of opportunity is available to all; l welcome, value and respect all who come to the school; l provide opportunities for experiencing the fullness of Catholic life while developing a spirit of tolerance, understanding and respect for other cultures, traditions and faiths; l build a community based on justice and a sense of personal responsibility while acknowledging the power of healing, reconciliation and forgiveness; l promote dialogue and co-operation with the wider community.

The catholic school for your child St Angela’s is a community centered around the life and teachings of Jesus Christ. The curriculum in all its aspects provides opportunities for a pupil’s intellectual, spiritual, moral, emotional, psychological, social and physical development, thus assisting progress towards that fullness of life, which comes from God.

Religious Education

Discipline

Takes place both formally and informally. It is taught as an academic subject throughout years 7 – 11, and GCSE Religious Studies is taken by all pupils in year 11.

St Angela’s aims to create a purposeful, well-disciplined atmosphere. Pupils are expected to behave in a sensible, responsible, respectful and considerate way at all times including times outside the school whilst in school uniform (when not with parents/carers). They are also expected to work hard in school and to complete all homework set. The school’s expectations are set out in detail in the Student Charter, which can be found in the student Planner.

The formal curriculum is complemented by a wide range of liturgical activities throughout the year involving pupils and staff. Whole school masses are held at the beginning of each academic year and on the feast of St Angela. Voluntary masses are held on Holy Days of Obligation and once a week at 8.30 a.m. in the school chapel. The major seasons of the church year are marked with liturgical celebrations as are leavers’ evenings. All pupils are given the opportunity to explore their relationship with God in an informal setting through a programme of retreats. An act of collective worship takes place daily, and pupils are able to visit the chapel for private prayer during lunchtime.

Pastoral Care At St Angela’s the pastoral care of our pupils is regarded as of the utmost importance and a major factor in supporting them in their school life and ensuring they achieve their full potential. There is a clearly defined pastoral structure to co-ordinate the day-to-day care of our pupils. Each form tutor is responsible for monitoring the attendance, punctuality, work, uniform, behaviour and general welfare of the tutor group, and is the first point of contact for parents for most matters. The Head of Year and Deputy Head Pupils also have pastoral responsibility, particularly regarding matters of a serious or delicate nature. We welcome contact from parents informing us of circumstances which may be affecting their daughters, and will respond promptly and appropriately. Further support is also provided by the Learning Support Unit and a team of learning mentors for those pupils who for a variety of reasons may need it to help them through a particularly stressful time or situation.

Fighting and bullying are taken very seriously and will not be tolerated. The full school policy is available on request, available on the school website: www.stangelas-ursuline.co.uk. Where girls fall short of expected standards, a wide range of sanctions exist. Detentions are set for lateness, misbehaviour, and for work or homework which is unsatisfactory or not done. A minimum of 24 hours’ notice is given for detentions. In very serious cases of misbehaviour girls may be internally excluded or sent home until their parents are seen. If girls are excluded from school parents are informed immediately by letter.

Awards The awards system in place at St Angela’s is designed to recognise achievement, initiative, effort and service of all kinds. Students are also rewarded for excellent attendance, punctuality and a commitment to Serviam in the school community and beyond. This means all students can be awarded and that achievements in all areas are recognised. We now use carrot awards, an on-line system that allows students to collect points from all awards earned in school. The basic system is a merit. Five merits earn a commendation and certificates are given termly. When a student is given a merit each sticker has a code. This code is then logged by the student into the my stickers web site and so an accurate record is kept of all awards and the web site also generates the commendation certificates.

5


In addition there are opportunities to win prizes via the my stickers site.

Each sub-skill has an award level Primo; Secondo and Tertio

Heads of Year and members of the Senior Leadership Team have their own sets of stickers which can count toward silver merits.

When a student has reached Primo in reasoning she is awarded a sticker. Another is awarded for each stage reached.

The Headteacher awards gold merits for outstanding achievement. These then build up and if all are successfully completed she will receive a “5R” certificate. At the end of term liturgies a range of special awards are presented for achievement and progress in academic subjects.

This part of our awards system is a key focus on the type of learner each student is and it also helps them move to the next level.

The Serviam badge remains our highest award and is presented for exceptional achievement and service to school and local community.

All the stages are clearly set out in the student planner.

All aspects of school life are recognised in our awards system with the aim of motivating our students to even further success from their first merit sticker in Year 7 through to the final presentations at the Year 11 presentation evening and then on into the Sixth Form.

Personal, Social Health & Economic education (PSHE)

Awards are a key feature of everyone being their best on the journey of becoming a lifelong learner.

The 5Rs In lessons students will address the following areas l Reasoning l Reflective l Resilient l Resourceful l Responsible

We would like them all to develop into learners with these qualities. Each of the five skills is broken down into four sub-skills For example Reasoning I can explain my thinking I consider all the evidence I chose the best method or thinking tool I take time

The PSHE Programme at St Angela’s is also set within the context of the message and values of the Gospel and the Ursuline tradition. It aims to help students develop the skills and values necessary for them to live as responsible adults. The weekly one hour lesson is timetabled with the form tutor, but often involves external speakers, special assemblies and cross-curricular events. The Citizenship aspect of the programme has 3 key concepts - Democracy and Justice; Rights and Responsibilities; Identities and Diversity: Living together in the UK. The PSHE aspect has two branches (a) Personal Wellbeing –the 5 key concepts being: Personal Identity, Happiness, Healthy Lifestyles, Risk, Relationships and Identity. Within this section, students cover Sex and Relationships Education (importantly within the context of a Catholic school) and also Drugs Education. (b) Economic Wellbeing and Financial Capability – the 4 key concepts being: Career, Capability, Risk and Economic Understanding. Within this section students cover Personal Finance and Enterprise Capability as well as Careers Education and Work Experience in Year 10. In addition, students have an extensive programme of Study Skills through the Learning to Learn programme, which supports our drive for accelerated learning.

Sex and Relationships Education is an integral part of the growth and development of pupils. The programme is set within the Catholic context and is concerned not only with biology and relationships but also with the spiritual and moral values which guide choices and behaviour. The school programme has been developed in conjunction with the RE and Science departments and aims to complement and support the sex and relationship education which takes place at home, since parents are the primary educators in this area. Careers Education and Guidance is delivered through PSHE from Year 8 onwards, starting in KS3 with the Real Game, an online package which enables students to experience budgeting, making choices, finding new jobs, arranging holidays etc within a virtual environment. The Careers section of the school library contains information on a wide range of occupations as well as details of courses in universities and colleges. The information is also available on the school computer network, where a variety of commercially produced programmes is provided, which can be accessed remotely from home. All students have the opportunity to undertake two weeks of work experience in Key Stage 4. The school has links with many universities, both within London and further afield, and students are encouraged to take advantage of taster days and open days in many subject areas.

Specialist School Status St Angela’s not only offers a firm and clear faith-based ethos for your daughter’s education, but also the highest quality academic provision which is recognised in its status as a Technology College, Language College, Training School, a Leading Edge School and one of four Teaching Schools in London. Technology College Status was first awarded to St Angela’s in April 1995. St Angela’s has maintained Technology College Status and was one of the first schools to achieve Leading Edge Status in July 2003. St Angela’s was also successful in becoming a Language College and Training School in 2005. As a specialist school and in the light of our mission statement, St Angela’s aims to: l

develop a technological culture throughout the school l raise standards and expectations in design technology, mathematics, science, information communications technology and languages

7

l

explore the opportunities for providing suitable progression pathways in KS4 and Post 16 l explore where industry and commerce can support the curriculum l develop links with the wider community and our family of schools l ensure all staff have access to the necessary training to improve pupil learning

There have been significant changes to the school since gaining all our specialist designations: l

A network of 500+ PC’s and a school wide wireless network with 13 banks of laptop computers. l An E-Learning scheme involving the use of a Managed Learning Environment (MLE) for pupils to access the curriculum and learning resources from home and within the school l Increased teaching time for all specialist subjects: science, design technology, ICT and languages l Opportunity for pupils to study two languages from Year 8 onwards.

Our school continues to be a ‘Leading Edge School’. This status reflects the level of work the school has undertaken to improve both in school and with our partner schools. Our areas of strength identified in our Leading Edge School Proposal; l

Teaching and learning and departmental management with key departments being mathematics, science, design & technology, modern foreign languages l The development of accelerated learning techniques and practice across the school l Whole school management – systems and structures l A career and professional development programme for all staff and staff of other schools.

School Organisation The school is basically divided into 3 sections: Lower school (years 7 – 9) – KS3 Upper school (years 10 and 11) – KS4 Post 16 (years 12 and 13) – KS5


These divisions allow the younger pupils to settle gradually into a larger school, while benefiting from all the facilities available in all subject areas. On admission pupils are organised into classes of approximately 30. These classes are named after high-achieving women and each class retains its name from year 7 – 11. Many subjects are organised into groups of less than 30, mainly practical subjects such as art, P.E., Science and Design & Technology. Students are grouped in two half-year ability bands based on their achievements from their KS2 results, but are placed in mixed tutor groups for pastoral provision. Students are then further set by ability in such subjects as English, Maths, Science, Design & Technology and PE

These groupings allow us to keep the classes as small as possible, and enable the students the best opportunity to progress at an appropriate pace. They also allow us to target staff deployment effectively. We firmly believe in mobility. If a student is doing better than other pupils in a set subject she will be moved to a higher group. If she is having difficulty with the work, she will be moved to the set which will allow her to achieve her potential. At the end of every academic year, there is a formal review of all pupil groupings in the light of each pupil’s performance and achievement.

The Curriculum Key Stage Three: Years 7 - 9 (age 11 - 13) English t Maths t Science t RE t French or German or Spanish – studying 2 languages from year 8 onwards t Design & Technology t Art t Drama t History t Geography t ICT t Music t Dance t PE Key Stage Four: Years 10 and 11 (age 14 - 16) In Key Stage 4 all girls follow the GCSE core subjects: English Language t English Literature t Mathematics t Science (Triple, Core – Additional or BTEC) t Design & Technology t Religious Education In addition, all girls currently choose 2 option subjects from the following list: French t German t Spanish t Art t ICT t Business Studies t History tDance t BTEC ICT Music t Drama t PE t Geography t Sociology t Skills for working life/ Certificate of Personal Effectiveness (Entry level) All students in Year 7 – 11 have a PSHE (Personal, Social, Health, Citizenship and Economic Education) lesson that includes strategies for accelerated learning, careers guidance and also sex education.

Homework

The work of the curriculum support team reflects:

In St Angela’s we believe that homework is an essential part of pupils’ learning. Homework is regularly set and girls are encouraged to establish good homework habits from the beginning of their careers in this school.

l

The School’s Mission Statement

l

Newham’s Inclusive Education strategy

l

All statutory requirements including the Special Educational Needs Code of Practice and the Disability Discrimination Act.

Homework timetables are drawn up at the beginning of each academic year, and homework set is recorded by each pupil in her student planner. Parents can therefore easily monitor what has been set and whether it has been done. The following allocation of homework time is an indication of what can be expected: Years 7 and 8: Year 9: Years 10 and 11:

3 subjects per night, 1.5 hours minimum 3 subjects per night, 2 hours minimum a minimum of 3.5 hours per evening and additional hours at the week-end

Curriculum Support The Curriculum Support Team offers in-class support across the curriculum to help students achieve their potential. Support is offered for a wide variety of reasons: l l l l l l l

Learning Language and Communication issues Behaviour/emotional issues Medical issues Physical issues Hearing impairment English as an additional language (EAL)

The team consists of 6 curriculum support assistants led by an experienced SENCo and second in Charge of Curriculum Support.

The school actively works to identify students who may be experiencing difficulty in accessing the curriculum; and works closely with parents and students in the planning and implementation of any support that may be required. Additional provision is made available for any students who have a greater need – including a Daily Reading Programme, Speech and Language Therapy Groups, Small Group teaching, EAL programmes based in the well-resourced and newly refurbished Curriculum Support Centre. All students identified as requiring support have a keyworker who sets learning targets and monitors their progress; as well as dealing with day-to-day problems. Learning targets are reviewed at least once a term; and parents are invited to review progress and provision at least once a year. The school SEN Policy is subject to regular review and sets out how the above is implemented. A full copy of the schools SEN policy is available from the school on request.

Parent/School Partnership We believe that pupils thrive best when there is consistency and uniformity of expectations from home and school and where parents are fully supportive of the ethos and systems of the school. The home school agreement, which parents are asked to sign, sets out clearly the responsibilities of school, pupils and parent/carers in the education of the girls.

School Fund Successful applicants are expected to contribute to the school fund which at present is £30.00 per year or £120.00 for five years.

Uniform We believe that the wearing of uniform is an important sign that our pupils take pride in belonging to St Angela’s and are willing to be part of all aspects of school life. We expect parents to support us in ensuring that correct uniform is worn at all times.
