“The Lord is my strength and my shield; my heart trusted in him, and I am helped:
                   therefore my heart greatly rejoiceth; and with my song will I praise him.”

                                                      Psalm 28:7






              My thanks to Mr Canham, Mrs Smith and the Transition Team for facilitating a very
              thorough transition programme for our new Year 7, culminating in Induction Evenings
              for individual Forms.  Pupils were able to meet other children from their new Form
              Group and key staff in school, as well as familiarising themselves with the school build-
              ing.

              The evenings were well supported by parents/carers and there was an opportunity to
              hear about Curriculum Evenings and our values and expectations at Woodchurch High
              School.  Both pupils and parents/carers expressed
              the fact that they were looking forward to Septem-
              ber and the beginning of their secondary school
              career.

              Our SEND Team were also able to bring pupils into
              school in small groups to visit school, as well as
              holding a separate SEND evening meeting with
              families.  These visits are vital in ensuring that our
              most vulnerable pupils are well prepared for the
              move to secondary school.

              Despite disruption and periods of isolation, Woodchurch High School has continued to
              drive forward.  Through Google Classroom our pupils have been able to experience live
              learning, consequently their education has been consistent and relevant.

              We are delighted that so many of the Year 10 cohort have ‘signed up’ for Period 6.
              This is a great opportunity to access a total of an additional 8 weeks of learning.  The
              impact of these lessons has been analysed by the English Curriculum Area based on
              the performance of the Year 11 cohort.  Staff have looked at “A Christmas Carol”
              scores and found the following:
