Year 8 Health and Wellbeing Survey

Information for parents/carers of year 8 students about the student health and wellbeing survey

You should have received a letter from your child regarding a health and wellbeing survey that we would like your child to have an opportunity to participate in. Our school is a member of the Schools Health and Wellbeing Research Network. We are working with a group of researchers from the London Institute of Education to develop the best way for our school to carry out an annual online survey with groups of students about their health and wellbeing.

From the survey we will be better informed to work with you to help to improve students’ health, both through the topics we cover in lessons and the support offered via Student Services. We are therefore asking students in year 8 to complete the online questionnaire during a lesson in the coming weeks. Students will be given information about the survey and why we think it is important for everyone to take part. The survey will cover topics such as exercise, diet, bullying and smoking.

You can see a copy of the letter your child was given and a paper version of the questionnaire by clicking on the two links below.

We hope you are happy for your child to participate. If you ARE happy, you need take no further action. If you or your child has questions or concerns about participating in the survey, please contact Ms Baldwin via email ( or telephone (020 8360 3158) before 14th October 2014.

Dynamic mathematics challenge day for year 8 students

Last week twelve talented mathematicians from Year 8 were invited to participate in a Maths challenge day at a local Enfield school.

The activities were all hands on and the students learnt about the importance of communication skills and effective team work. They enjoyed the puzzle activities that focused on achievement rather than competition and the students were genuinely challenged to solve puzzles by trying a range of strategies to reach a solution. This was highlighted by one student who said ‘We all enjoyed the puzzles as they were confusing but were fun to finish them all’. Members of staff noted that all students were focused and motivated for the whole time and they said it was lovely to see different learning styles being catered for so that everyone had a chance to show their own learning strengths.

Please do not send your child to school before these times; we are arranging the day in this way so that we can welcome Year 7 to the school when it is quiet. They need to learn their way around the school and get to know their routines without other students in school. We hope that by having this shorter induction for Middle and Upper phases that the whole school will be ready to start lessons at 8.30am on Monday 8 September 2014.
