Mr J Mickelburgh
Assistant leader of the Learning Community
Miss K Walker
Year Group Ethos
I feel hugely privileged to be responsible for supporting your son/daughter in their transition to secondary school. From my many years of experience as a Head of Year I thoroughly look forward to working with parents and guardians to ensure the transition process is as smooth as possible for your children.
Transitioning from primary school to secondary school can be daunting for many and can be seen as a big challenge. However, it is the resilience and the commitment to making pupils lives better that allow the pupils to settle in comfortably year after year.
I have made it very clear to Year 7 that I expect them to be BRAVE every day - after all our school motto 'Forti difficile nihil' translates as 'For the brave, nothing is difficult'.
They are expected to:
Behave – in line with the school ethos and values
Responsible – to have the correct equipment, complete their homework and take responsibility for their actions
Attitude – to adopt a positive mind-set to their learning and to develop resilience
Virtuous – to be truthful, have good morals and work as part of a community
Effort - to try their best in everything they do
From my recent experience of leading a cohort through their GCSE studies, I firmly believe that if all students are BRAVE then they will make outstanding progress in Robert Clack School.
At Robert Clack we understand how important it is to recognise achievements especially for our younger pupils. Therefore, on a weekly basis through assemblies, we celebrate the pupils’ successes in specific subjects, merits earned, appraisals, achievement in extra-curricular activities and their attendance. Each pupil in Year 7 has the ability to succeed and they will always be encouraged to be the best they can be.
I am honoured to lead this year group as I am in no doubt that each individual will aim for success while at Robert Clack and build a strong foundation in order to pave the way for their future successes. I would also like to take this opportunity to thank the parents for their support and encouragement placed into our Year 7 pupils and together, we can ensure our students fulfil their potential.
