Year 7 After School Clubs 

We have one more week till half term! Since the beginning of September we have had 5606 positive commendations with 593 commendations given this week! Unfortunately, we have had a total of 325 negatives with 57 added this week. Negative comments should stay at 0. You represent year 7, so let’s see if next week the only comments are positive ones! 

Students have been busy this week with the literacy assessment in different subjects, and handing in lovely entries to the scary Halloween creative writing competition. Students have also voted for the best teachers, teaching assistants and departments. Let’s see who Year 7 love the most! 

Recent assemblies have focused on students living the CCA way. It is lovely to have seen so many students aspiring to reach that level. The following students have received the most commendations this week: Maxine Aldwinckle and Olivia Happer. The students who have remained on the top of the league table are Paige Clemenson and Joseph Willis. Well done to our lovely students! Who will be next at the top? 

Miss Peterson Year 7 Tutor 

I thought as we approach the end of the first half term, it would be a good time to reflect on your progress and achievements so far. 

From where you started from to where you are now is like comparing night and day. September was nervousness, anxiousness, out of comfort zone, meeting new peers, adults and new surroundings. Now you are settled, confident, making progress and striding forward showing others in other years how to aspire to do your best. 97% attendance, the highest in the school, best percentage of positive comments in the academy, most commendations of any year group. I could go on! 

So summing up I think all people associated with year 7 should be proud of the works so far achieved. However, we don't rest. We continue to the line which is 3pm on Thursday. 

I would like to take this opportunity to thank some people. The tutors, parents, your teachers and obviously Mrs West, Mrs Beales, Miss McClusky for everything this half term. To the children I simply say stay safe and enjoy your rest.

Year 8 Equipment Bingo! 

This week I got the opportunity to witness the famous equipment bingo in Mr Seager’s tutor group, very impressive it was too. Something the students clearly enjoy and a great way of making sure they have everything they need for their lessons. Year 8 have kept up their great record for being on time with the least lates and also the most commendations in the school. 

Congratulations to the year 8 netball team who had a fantastic win at the AET Netball Tournament last week. 

Keep up the fantastic work super8's and don't forget to follow us on Twitter @super8CCA

Year 9 Mighty Nines 

I have been delighted with the positive attitude to learning this week from the mighties. In many subjects, students have been working towards assessments and I look forward to seeing their progress. 

A huge congratulations must go to the following students who have already achieved more than 35 positive entries and are paving the way for outstanding behaviour to learning; Re'an Pearson, Jolie Jerram, Hattie Dawson-Dragisic, Paris Parker-North, Hannah Murphy and Katherine Thurston - Well done! 

Also keeping it MIGHTY this week is Terry Smith, Louie Adams, Elis-Rose Devlin Walden, Kelsey Stemp and Jack Beeson who have all been selected to the final phase of the Respect Project led by Essex Boys and Girls Clubs. These students will be work-ing with students from CCHS and The Colne to develop their life skills over a 6 week project. Congratulations! 

Here’s to another successful week – keep following us on our ‘MIGHTY NINES’ twitter page @CCAYEAR8. Keep it MIGHTY!

Year 10 Consultation Evening 

Year 10 pupils have seen another positive week with Sherrie Oliver having been awarded over 200 Vivos in just 5 days! Billy Kirby followed closely behind with 190 Vivos. Staff have been sending the year team emails of praise throughout the week but these students were selected for 100 Achievement Director Vivos and a place on our assembly slides. Well done Billy and Sophie-Louise! 

“Just a quick note about Billy Kirby to say how fantastic he has been in class recently. The past few weeks he has been trying SO hard and really getting stuck into classes and his work. I am very impressed with his turnaround.” AND “Billy was also a superstar in RM today and very confidently gave the whole class a demonstration of how to do a shoulder joint.” 

Mr Percival and Mrs Parsons - Geography/Technology “I nominate Sophie-Louise Bowles - she is a highly motivated and dedicated student. Sophie will always attend voluntary catch-up after school or take work home to ensure she is up to date.” Mrs Brooks-Dickens - Science 


4.30pm – 6:30pm THURSDAY 20th November 2014 

We are pleased to invite you to the upcoming Parents’ Consultation Evening. You will have the opportunity to discuss your child’s progress with the Subject Teachers and Year Team staff. In addition, members of the Executive Team will also be available and happy to meet you to discuss any specific issues. 

Appointments with your child’s teachers will last for approximately 5 minutes, but if there are particular issues that require lengthier discussion a separate appointment can be made. 

The purpose of the evening is to: 

  • Share and discuss progress data 
  • Share any concerns 
  • Set targets for development 

We all look forward to meeting with you.

Year 11 Work Experience 

It was great to celebrate the success of work Experience last week. The students enjoyed an assembly where they were celebrated for the enthusiasm, hard work and dedication they showed in their work placements. Work Experience was hugely successful for so many students at the end of last year and it was wonderful to receive such positive reports from so many local employers. Intervention is still going well in year 11 and students are really ‘upping their game’ in attending these interventions and exam preparation sessions after school. A big well done to all those students who are regularly attending these sessions and showing determination to do well. Year 11 student council is now up and running. The first meeting of the year has taken place and representatives from all tutor groups were given an opportunity to voice their suggestions to Mr Hellard. We look forward to being able to implement many of these suggestions in the near future. 

Please don’t forget, Year 11 have a twitter account which you are more than welcome to follow. @cca_11
