YEAR 9 PROGRESS EVENING – TUES 24th OCT

Post-it NOTEWe invite all parents of Year 9 students to the school on Tuesday 24th Oct between 3:30pm and 6:30pm.

All students have received a letter and appointment sheet from their tutor earlier this week and should be currently making appointments with subject teachers.

This is a really important time in the year and it is essential that students are making appointments with all of their subject teachers to discuss progress and the next steps over the coming months.

We look forward to seeing you.

POST 16 COFFEE MORNING

The Post 16 Head Team successfully hosted their first internal event last month, on the 28th and 29th of September, by raising over £200 through a Coffee Morning for Macmillan. The two-day event took place in the recently established Post 16 Cafe. Over the two days, students and staff baked cakes to sell alongside tea and coffee served by the Year 13 students.

We are extremely proud to have raised £231.39 for Macmillan and had the opportunity to bring together and engage with both staff and students throughout the two days. In addition to staff and students, we welcomed some Year 6 parents who were on a school tour. This allowed us to show them them truly collaborative and enthusiastic environment here at St Julian’s. We look forward to hosting many more successful events in the future.

We appreciate all the donations we received, and thank you all for supporting an excellent cause.

WELSH WATER

3 of our students participated in a national campaign by the Welsh Water Board to address issues with water pollution and how to combat it.
They were selected from students across Wales and worked with the company to create a national media campaign to highlight issues. Well done to all the students involved.

 

ST JULIAN’S SITE DEVELOPMENT

Over the past year we have been working with Newport Norse who are the school’s corporate landlord in developing future building enhancement plans for the school and have recently received news of additional capital funding.

Over the next academic year we should see the development of the main building toilets/Student Reception entrance area, double glazing windows and expansion of the current café facilities with the introduction of a new outdoor space for students to enjoy.

These projects will happen in three stages, the first being our new toilets. A final project meeting is taking place this week and we hope to see the work commence shortly afterwards. The new toilets and Student Reception entrance should be ready for the third week back when we return after October half term. 

Yr 11 INTERVENTION LETTER

Dear Parent/Carer,

I am writing to share with you information regarding your child’s forthcoming exams in English and Maths. I am also pleased to share the news that many of our Year 11 students secured positive results in their Y10 exams and now have an early opportunity to better their grades. Following the summer results, all students have been reset in English, Maths and Science…..

WELCOME BACK

Dear Parent/Carer,

I hope that you all had a restful summer holiday and are now ready for another busy and exciting academic year. A particularly warm welcome to the 250 Year 7 students and their families who are now part of the St Julian’s community and welcome back to our of Year 12 students who have decided to pursue their Post 16 education at St Julian’s.

It is a pleasure to report to you that the school’s summer exam results at both A Level and GCSE were good and a reflection of the effort and commitment shown by the students over the past few years, ably supported by both staff and parents/carers. The majority of our A Level students have been accepted to the Universities of their choice. I wish them well as they embark on a new and exciting chapter in their lives. A full report on our external exam performance will be available as part of the Governing Body Annual Report to Parents which is published before October half-term…..

KIERAN

We are very saddened to inform you of the death of one of our year 10 pupils, Kieran Deakin over the summer holidays.

Kieran was diagnosed with a brain tumour back in March and after putting up a long and courageous fight he sadly lost his battle last week.

We will always remember Kieran as a kind, polite, happy boy who loved school and especially his beloved Newport County.

Our thoughts and condolences are with his family, friends and classmates at this very sad time. There are support networks available in school for any pupil who may be affected by this news.
