Operation Encompass

The school has been given the opportunity to take part in a project that will run jointly between schools and Cheshire and Greater Manchester Police.

Operation Encompass is the reporting to schools, prior to the start of the next school day, when a child or young person has experienced any domestic abuse.

Operation Encompass will ensure that members of the school staff, known as the ‘Key Adults’, are trained to allow them to liaise with the police. They will use this confidential information to make any appropriate provisions and support for the child who may be experiencing difficulties as a result of the domestic abuse incident.

The Key Adults at The Kingsway School are Mrs. J. Maxey, and Ms. C. Cropper.

We are keen to offer the best support possible to all our students and we believe this will be extremely beneficial for all those involved.

Year 11 Revision Sessions – May Half Term

During the May Half Term holidays, subject teachers will be offering revision sessions for Year 11.

As you are aware, this is an important time for students and every extra opportunity to study they can get will increase their confidence and help them to hopefully achieve higher grades in their GCSE’s. Attending the revision school sessions will give students additional time to revise, ask questions and develop their exam technique. Your support in getting your child to attend the sessions they are expected to attend would be very much appreciated.

The revision timetable is available below.

Please do not hesitate to contact Ms Cox-Brown, Year 11 Raising Standards Leader if you have any questions regarding this or any other revision sessions: k.coxbrown@kingsway.stockport.sch.uk

Upcoming Transition Events

Year 6 Transition Drop-in

Dining Hall on Foxland Campus

The first of a series of drop-in sessions for Year 6 parents/carers to discuss any concerns or issues they may have with a member of the transition team. These will be informal sessions with some of our Year 7 students in attendance as ambassadors for the school.

Year 6 Parent Workshop - Literacy and Numeracy
Monday 10th June
5:30-6:30pm
Broadway Campus

We understand how daunting the transition from primary to secondary school can be and, as a school, we are deeply committed to ensuring that this is as smooth as possible, for everyone including parents and carers. As such we are also running a series of Parent Workshops to help bridge the gap. The first session is on literacy and numeracy skills to support your child and will also see the launch of our summer reading and maths programmes.

Year 6 Parent Workshop - Bridging the Gap
Thursday 20th June
5:30-7pm
Broadway Campus

Our second Parent Workshop will be delivered by Miss Cropper, our Wellbeing Lead and Operational Safeguarding officer. She will be delivering a workshop on reducing anxieties and supporting your child’s transition to secondary school.

Thursday 4th July
The final date, which should already be in your diaries, is the Transition Day and evening. More details will follow shortly but we just wanted to give you a reminder that in the evening the event is for parents only and will give you the chance to meet your child’s form tutor.

We hope as many of you as possible can attend these events but if you have any concerns or queries in the meantime, please do not hesitate to contact a member of the transition team on transition@kingsway.stockport.sch.uk

Revision Sessions – GCSE Exams

GCSEs have started successfully this week, well done to those students who have already completed some of their exams. The exams continue until the last week of June.

A reminder that there are revision sessions organised in place of timetabled lessons to help prepare the students for the upcoming exams. These revision sessions continue beyond the May half term so although the students only need to come in for exams after this point they can also choose to come in and access revision sessions as well.

Remember that school is open on a Saturday morning as a quiet place to study, 10:30am- 1pm.

Continue the hard work with revision and make sure that you get plenty of rest as well in order to perform at your best.

As always, good luck!
