Monday 20th October sees the start of ‘Show My Homework’, a web-based service to support us all in ensuring good quality homework is completed.

Year 7 will be the first to be able to view their own homework and other year groups will be added at fortnightly intervals.

Please see the newsletter published next week for more details.

To visit Show My Homework, follow the Parents link at the top of the page or for now, click here.

Mrs. Carole Davies
Deputy Headteacher

3rd October 2014

Dear Parents and Carers,

Firstly, I am delighted to tell you that my position as head teacher has been extended to the end of this academic year. It is a huge privilege to be in this role at such an exciting time in Stalham High School's improvement and, after such a positive start of term, I am looking forward to a successful year for our students.  

As we develop ourselves as a learning community, we will be supporting our students to be active and independent learners. As part of this, we refer to them as students, not pupils, as we want to promote the ethos that learning is an active process, not something 'done' to young people!

All of our students in years 7, 8 and 9 have been invited to be student receptionist for a day. In this role they have responsibilities including greeting visitors to the school and supporting their visit and supporting the school's administrative support team. Our student receptionists are a vital part of our school and the opportunity gives them some experience in areas they might not get in class. All class work is provided for the students to ensure that they do not get behind on their learning. Please get in touch if you would like any more information about the scheme.

On Friday the 26th September, we had a Macmillan coffee morning at the school with many cakes being sold and devoured by staff and students! Funds were raised for Macmillan cancer support. Many thanks for any of your contributions.

Our Open Evening took place last Thursday, the 25th September. We welcomed many parents, carers and young people into our school and were delighted that so many of our students wanted to give up their time to support the school and talk to prospective students about Stalham High School. Thank you for supporting them in this.

Over the last few weeks, we have had so many additional opportunities for students. To summarise: a trip to see 'To Kill A Mockingbird' at Norwich Theatre Royal, a trip to Hellesdon High School to see Propeller's 'A Midsummer Night's Dream' ('A Pocket Dream') and a visit by the published author, Hilton Pashley. We are also getting the Debating Society up and running for the year. In P.E.,  our U’15 team kicked off the season with a win against Alderman Peel. The under 16 boys' football team kicked off their season in style with a two-goal victory in the local derby with North Walsham. Our Under 13 Girls' Netball team won their second fixture 3-2. The Rubgy club runs on Tuesdays from 3.05pm to 4.15pm and is being led by North Walsham Vikings. The coach used to play for England so has much experience to share!

Our programme of assemblies from post-16 providers for year 11 is going well and sparking many conversations about the next steps. This has been so positive that we are putting together a similar programme for year 10. We also want to get speakers into assemblies to share their successes in different workplaces. If you or anyone you know would be happy to speak to our students in an assembly, please do let me know.

Finally, a plea from our food technology teacher, Mrs Dorkins. Any donations to the school of empty fairy liquid bottles, empty cake tins, biscuit tins or sweet tins and large ice-cream tubs would be gratefully received!

Please, as always, don't hesitate to get in touch with me to discuss any aspect of your son or daughter's education. My email address is awebb3nrf@nsix.org.uk

Kind regards,

Amy Webb
Interim Head Teacher
