The government has produced some resources to clarify the next steps for students who are still unsure about what to do after GCSE results are published.
Please find the attached letter, transport and bursary forms that are available for the September 2020 intake of Sixth Form students.
The attached document below contains tons of activities and resources which will help with employability or you might just find interesting.
There’s stuff from poetry to game design, and careers from journalism to the armed forces, and everything in between.
'What’s your vision for the world after coronavirus?'
Put your thinking caps on and enter this exciting competition being run by 'opendemocracy'. Enter a photo, video or written entry in answer to the above question, to be in with the chance of winning some fantastic prizes:
"The grand prize includes £200 in book vouchers and a bespoke training opportunity with either open Democracy or UCL that may take the form of a mini-fellowship, work experience, or placement in line with the winner’s area of interest. The People’s Choice winner will receive £100 in book vouchers and runners-up will receive £50 in book vouchers" (openDemocracy)
The competition is open to anyone age 14+, but I would particularly like to encourage entries from our current year 10 and 12 students. You can find details below and on ShowMyHomework of how this competition could be of particular interest and use to students in these year groups.
As well as entering the 'openDemocracy' competition via their website: https://www.opendemocracy.net/en/world-after-covid/, I would also ask you to email your entries to firstname.lastname@example.org for submission into an internally judged school competition. The deadline for entries is Friday 10th July.
Good Luck everyone (I know how innovative you all are!), and I look forward to receiving your entries.
Mrs V. McMahon
Congratulations as once again the students at Idsall have proved themselves to be budding future entrepreneurs. I'm sure that you'll all agree that the stall looks amazing!
The students, after attending the judged Trade Fayre days, had to produce a recorded YouTube presentation in only a couple of days before lock-down arrived. To add to this, they then had to write a report without any face to face help or guidance from anybody.
So, an amazing achievement by Cameron, Rebecca, Emma, Sienna, Megan, Heather and Kaitlin and something for us and them to be proud of (especially under these difficult circumstances).
Mr D. Thomas.
Dear Parents and Carers,
If you or your child has run out of books to read, then please use an e-library. It’s free.
If you haven’t registered for a library, fear not! Even though all libraries are closed, there is a way of registering to use the e-libraries for Shropshire and for Telford on-line.
Telford: https://library.telford.gov.uk/web/arena/self-registration (Parents/Guardians will need to register children who are under 16).
There is a downloadable app, so you and your child/ren can read or listen to books on their mobile phones.
Any queries, please get in touch with me: email@example.com
Baker & Son Schoolwear has informed us today that they are now reopening their Wellington store on the 15th June, in line with Government Guidance (and not the 1st June as stated in the attached letter).
Congratulations to our Idsall Entrepreneurs - Corin, Neave, Ollie and Izzy, and everybody else who have been taking part in the weekly Enterprise competitions with 'The Inspirational Learning Group'.
We have had over 400 entries across 7 weeks. Well done everybody and thank you to Mrs Kendall for organising it all.
Mr D. Thomas
At Idsall, all of our students have been set daily challenges of ‘being kind’ from the attached document, to help them all through these difficult times. As we know it is the simple acts of kindness that can make all the difference to our own mental wellbeing and others!
Year 7 students are breaking up their online learning by considering what their future career and ideal job is. They are producing presentations, letters, posters, animations or anything of their choice to display this. School will then use this information to help guide, support and facilitate students over the next 4 years through lessons, visits to and from employers and assemblies. Well done everybody. We look forward to reading your career aspirations.
