Student-Led Meetings Prove to be a Success on Progress Review Day
Progress Review Day – December 2014
A huge thank you to everyone who attended our last Progress Review Day in December. It was extremely successful and in the case of Y7 and 10 students, we saw students beginning to take control of their own interviews by sharing a piece of work that they were proud of. Our aim as a school is for the Progress Review Day to eventually become more ‘Student Led’ enabling our students to take the lead in discussing their learning, progress and next steps.
The day itself is an extremely valuable way of celebrating each child’s achievements. It is an opportunity for every child to receive some quality ‘one to one’ time with their Form Tutor and use their interim feedback to identify key areas for development. We greatly appreciate the support of all parents and carers who attend on the day as it provides an opportunity for communication and focus upon celebrations and ways forward in term of your child’s learning. Your support is greatly appreciated by staff and students alike. Our next Progress Review Day will be on Friday 10 July 2015. We look forward to another successful day.
Freddie’s Heroes and TV stars raise over £4,000 for charity
Stars of the small screen clashed with a Freddie’s Heroes XI from Fred Longworth High School in a match that raised over £4,000 for Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital.
The game against a star-studded All Stars team was part of the school’s 50th anniversary celebrations and attracted a crowd of over 3000 at Alder Lane, home of Atherton Collieries FC.
Amongst the All Stars team were some very familiar faces including actor Ralf Little, soap stars Chris Bisson, Andy Whyment, Anthony Quinlan and Chris Fountain and Rhodri Giggs, brother of Manchester United legend Ryan.
