Year Group Ethos

It is an honour and a privilege to be leading a promising cohort of pupils through their initial steps of success at Robert Clack School of Science. The transition to Secondary School is an excellent opportunity to focus on new beginnings. This year will initiate the journey for Year 7 pupils to build foundations for their future.

 

Success is multi-dimensional and Robert Clack recognises it in the forms of academia, extra-curricular activities, creativity, building positive relationships and developing moral awareness. We would like to see each and every member of the year 7 community take full advantage of the opportunities provided, overcome challenges that will come their way and cultivate relationships with peers and staff.  Partaking in these endeavours will scaffold them with support and knowledge they require for their future.

The year 7 cohort was set a challenge; to create their own year group motto!  They then partook in a democratic vote, deciding the ethos which represented them best.

 

Our Year 7 motto is – “If plan A doesn’t work, there are still 25 more letters in the alphabet.”

 

The root of this year group motto explores perseverance and resilience.  Transitioning to a new school environment is not always an easy feat.  What is insightful about this statement is the underlying meaning that in every circumstance there is an opportunity, it is important to perceive it with optimism! This vision holds a mind set upon recognising your strengths and building upon your weaknesses with determination and tenacity. As a year group we believe that persistence supersedes talent, genetics and luck.  There can be no success without it.

 

As a community we applaud pupil achievement both in and outside of school in the form of weekly assemblies. There is particular praise for attendance, merits, appraisals, sporting success and curricular progress. Every pupil in the Year 7 cohort has the opportunity to achieve.  We look forward to seeing this cohort grow cohesively as a community.

To form an environment where a young person can flourish requires a collaborative approach. I would like to take this opportunity to thank parents and guardians for their support. If you would like to discuss pupil progress or welfare, please feel free to contact me.

 

It is with great pleasure I welcome the year 7s of 2017 who I am sure will be proud ambassadors of Robert Clack. Your future begins here!

Notable successes with the year group

  • The year 7s took part in a transitional project which involved reading “Jamie Johnson: Born to Play” by Dan Freedman.  Dan is a reputable author who writes novels for Skills academy.  We were very fortunate to have Dan visit Robert Clack and speak to the year 7s about his text, sign copies of his book and answer questions from pupils.
  •  
  • The feedback from Dan was full of praise for the school: “I understood from Dan that the event was a complete success and he actually said that it was one of the best he had done and how well you and your staff had organised everything. Thank you for making it such a positive and uplifting day”
