Save-the-Date

Liskeard School held its first prestigious Awards Evening on the 1st July 2015.

Celebrating the achievements, attributes and contributions of Liskeard students is part of the daily routine. Students achieve community awards and receive merits daily for their hard work and positive contributions.

The awards evening was the celebration highlight of the year. Students from Years 7- 13 were nominated for an award and were invited with their families to the event.

Awards include a Head Teacher Award, Governors’ Award, Community Award, Resilience Award and an award from each faculty.

These are the highest accolades students can achieve. Further details about each award and the nomination criteria are below.

Awards' Evening Awards Criteria

The Government has introduced a new GCSE accountability measure known as Progress 8 (P8). This is a score based on how well the students do in relation to what was expected of them in 8 of their subjects. (Expectations are based on prior attainment at the end of Year 6.) For example, if a student was expected to get 8 B grades at GCSE, but achieved 8 A grades, then they would receive a P8 score of +1 (1 grade better than expected on average). Likewise, if they achieved 8 C grades their score would be -1.

The 8 subjects that are used to calculate the P8 score are as follows:

  • English and maths GCSEs
  • 3 of the following GCSEs: Science (including Core Science, Additional Science, Biology, Chemistry, Physics & computer science), Spanish, French, History and Geography
  • Any other 3 subjects

 KS4 Results

* 20% of students in 2016 and 18% of students in 2017 didn’t meet the full P8 criteria as they joined the school late, e.g. in Year 11, or because it wasn’t in their best interest. Our P8 score for those meeting the full P8 criteria was +0.15 in 2016 and +0.12 in 2017. On the KS4 ALPS Report 2016 we were given a score of 3 (‘excellent’) for the progress students make in all their subjects (not just the 8 listed above). This puts us in the top 25% of schools nationally.

 Social Media

E-Safety

The internet is a fantastic place to learn, have fun and talk to friends and family. However, there are risks and everyone must make sure they know how to stay safe and protect themselves online. Here at Liskeard School, we provide students from Year 7 - 11 with a comprehensive E-Safety programme in tutorial time focusing on issues such as:

  • The advantages and disadvantages of living in a digital world
  • The dangers of sharing personal information online and how to stay safe
  • Appropriate use of social media (Facebook; SnapChat etc)
  • Cyber bullying – how to recognise it and reporting mechanisms
  • Sexting – the consequences

 

In addition to this, the school takes part in the annual national event ‘Safer Internet Day’ which is taking place this academic year on Tuesday 6th February 2018. All students in Year 7 also complete a unit of work on E-Safety in ICT lessons resulting in the production of an advice leaflet for peers focusing on ‘Keep Safe online.’ Other subjects also make a contribution to the E-Safety programme; for example, Year 10 Photography students study image manipulation on the internet and how businesses use this to their advantage. There are regular assemblies throughout the year on topical E-Safety issues.

Below are some very useful guides for parents for internet sites regularly used by teenagers. Please take a few moments to read and digest some of the guidance for safe usage.

During tutorials, students are signposted to various respected organisations which provide comprehensive guidance and support, such as:

We also recognise that, in an ever changing digital world, parents need a helping hand in order to keep up! As a result, each year we offer an informal workshop and hands-on training session for all parents and members of the local community involved in working with children.

We also recommend a range of excellent help guides for parents produced by OFCOM.  See below for their links.

 

It is also useful to read the Department for Education's advice on Cyberbullying for Parents and Carers.

If you have any questions or concerns about E-Safety matters, please do not hesitate to contact the school’s designated E-Safety Officer, Wendy Birkbeck, Assistant Headteacher (wbirkbeck@liskeard.cornwall.sch.uk) or telephone 01579 342344.

Academies-Logo

Our Academies exist to give our students greater opportunities to learn and explore in fields in which they have talents or interests. They work in a myriad of ways, comprising of clubs, events and trips which involve experiences in and outside the classroom, in school time and outside of normal school hours.

We currently run four Academies but these all consist of a variety of subject areas and cater for a broad variety of tastes and skills. Some of these opportunities will only be available for invited students who have demonstrated a particular aptitude or passion but many are available to all. We encourage all of our students to get involved and to make the most of these chances to gain new and exciting experiences.

The Academies are constantly reinventing themselves and increasing the number of events and opportunities that they provide but a summary is contained below. Click on the logos below for more details:
