  • Maths Parental Workshop

    Published 27/09/23

    We had the first of our Maths Parental Workshops where parents had the opportunity to discover what teachers are doing in the classroom and why. 

    For a few years now, Maths has been taught using a mastery approach. This approach means that students get a much deeper understanding of the subject, rather than being able to memorise key procedures by rote learning.

    On the evening, parents were asked to attempt some questions that their child would have been presented with in lessons, which was thoroughly enjoyable for parents/carers and students. Parents also had a number of websites shared with them that are either used for homework, classwork or for pleasure.

    Feedback from the parents who attended the workshop was extremely positive with them really appreciating knowing exactly what their child will be studying until the October break as well as understanding the mastery approach.

    The next evening will be on 7th November at 3.30pm and 5.30pm. In these sessions, we wish for parents/carers and students to be looking at the work being done until the Christmas break and having a go at the mastery approach to Maths.

    We are particularly keen on keeping the student, parent/carer and teacher partnership strong; don't miss the opportunity to get involved and Build Brighter Futures for your children.

    Useful websites were shared for parents to use with their children (see below). Parents left supported, eagerly awaiting the next session.

  • Welcome, Year 7!

    Published 07/09/23

    Welcome to our new Year 7 students!

    They all looked impeccable in their uniforms and demonstrated PRIDE from the moment they entered the school gates, to when they ended their first day here, at President Kennedy School.

    Students put their best foot forward by showing respect to those around them and engaging in their learning from the outset. Our teachers were incredibly impressed and the Bridge team are incredibly excited about what our new Bridge cohort will bring.

    We look forward to an exciting year with you all in The Bridge!                                                                                                                     Miss Tovey, Leader of the Bridge
