GCSE Results Day

AW results day

The GCSE results become available to students on Thursday 24th August 2017.

All results will be available for collection from Bramcote College, on Moor Lane in Bramcote.

Year 11 will be able to collect their results from 9.00am until 12:00pm
Year 10 will be able to collect their results from 10:00am until 12:00pm

Results will not be issued to students prior to the times agreed, even if they arrive early.
If your son or daughter is unable to come to Bramcote College to collect their results on 24th August they may leave a stamped addressed envelope with the Exams Office at Alderman White School prior to the end of term and results will be posted out on this date. Alternatively, someone may collect your son or daughters results on their behalf, please note your son or daughter must inform the school by providing a signed letter detailing who they wish to pick up their results. The person picking up the results must bring a form of photographic ID with them.

Any uncollected results statements for which we have not received a stamped addressed envelope will be retained and will be available from Alderman White School from the start of the autumn term.

Results statements provided to students will be produced in school from the results received from the exam boards. Exam boards do not provide result slips. To avoid errors on your certificates when they are issued please check the spelling of your name is correct, and that your name is your correct legal name.
When you receive your results, please check them very carefully. If anything appears to be missing or you have any queries regarding your exam results, please do not hesitate to contact me.

We will also provide on results day confirmation of the Certificate Collection date.

OFSTED Report

Rated Good In All AreasPlease find our latest Ofsted report attached below (not available on school app). As you will see from the report, the overall judgement was that we are providing a good standard of education for your children, and that all key aspects, namely Leadership, Teaching and Learning, Personal Development, Behaviour and Safety, and Outcomes for Pupils are good. It is very gratifying that the hard work and dedication of teachers, support staff, Governors and, of course, students is recognised in such a positive way. We are delighted that inspectors speak so positively about the progress we have made, and are continuing to make.

Inspectors have recognised much of the excellent work that takes place at the school. They are confident that our students make good progress across the curriculum, including Maths and English. The improvement in standards in Maths is picked out for particular mention, and this is typical across all subjects and for all groups of students – as they comment ‘all groups of pupils are making good progress from their different starting points, including the most able.’ Languages are highlighted for the exceptional progress that students make.

The quality of teaching is also recognised as a major strength, and something that we have worked very hard to improve to such high levels. Leadership at all levels is praised, including the leadership shown by Directors, as well as senior and middle leaders across the board. The wonderful extra-curricular opportunities that our students can access are also highlighted in the report.

Healthy Lifestyles

I hope that you have had a relaxing and a celebratory Christmas break.  Thank you to those who completed the parent survey last term.  We found that ‘encouraging healthy lifestyles’ gained the lowest ranking in terms of how many felt that provision for this was good or better at Alderman White. As a result, I would like to explain a little bit more about everything that we do in school around healthy living and some new initiatives that we have planned.

Healthy Lifestyles encompasses physical fitness, mental health, emotional and social well-being and healthy eating. All these areas are covered in detail in assemblies and by the Personal, Social, Health and Education team, who deliver a comprehensive programme across all year groups. They regularly involve outside providers to ensure that we have up-to-date information for our students. Please see the long term plan overleaf that outlines the areas covered in every year group. In addition, the Science and Technology Faculties also teach topics around healthy living.

Student and Community Committee Annual Report

The Student and Community Committee oversees delivery of the White Hills Park Federation five-year vision as it relates to students and the wider community. There are five key areas that the committee monitors– each of which is supported by a named Federation Director.

Listening to Student Voice:  Students have a powerful voice and contribute to decisions about their education.

The Student Federation Council comprises students elected from their year groups and provides a forum for students to represent the views and questions of their peers to invited members of the Federation Leadership. Discussions this year have included views on curriculum changes, new buildings and uniform plans. A Student Union has also been established at Bramcote College and ideas shared for community events. Head Boys and Girls from each of the schools have been invited to join the committee to share their perspective.

Engagement with Parents and the Community: Our Federation is rooted in its community.  We have close links with neighbourhood groups, primary schools, faith communities and voluntary organisations. We work in partnership with parents/carers and parental satisfaction is extremely high.
