Parental Feedback

Our children have different personalities, skills, interests, strengths, and weaknesses but both have been well cared for at Hall Green and have always looked forward to going to school. Opportunities are provided for all abilities and interests which helps to realise the potential of each child and so they themselves can recognise their own value. No single skill appears to be valued above all others so the pupils are able to find out what makes them shine. My children aren’t statistics, they’re individuals, and that’s why I’m glad that they’re at Hall Green.

FC, parent.

Congratulations

Year 9 PSHE Programme: Tapestry

“Tapestry” is a theatre production designed to give pupils a safe space to discuss sensitive and controversial questions about how and why young people can get drawn into extremist ideologies. The play is interactive, with the action stopping at intervals so that pupils can talk to the characters in the play and ask them questions or give them advice. This production addresses the five fundamental British Values of democracy , rule of law, tolerance of different cultures and religions, mutual respect and individual liberty and is part of the school’s response to the “Prevent” strategy.

Year 11 Exam Support

Year 11 Exam Support

The countdown to final GCSEs is upon us, with further mock exams in Maths, Physics, Business Studies and Computer Science over the next two weeks providing a great opportunity to sharpen exam technique and get ready for the main body of GCSE exams that start on Monday 13th May.

Whilst hard work is vital to successful GCSEs, it is also clear that exams can create a lot of pressure for young people and they need all the support they can get at home as well at school. The student guide provides some really good tips on dealing with exam stress that has been provided by the DfE.

Good luck to all our Yr 11 pupils from everyone here at Hall Green School.

Educate and Celebrate

Educate and Celebrate

On Wednesday the 20th of March, a speaker from the organisation “Educate and Celebrate” will present assemblies to pupils in years 7 and 8. We are committed to Hall Green School being an inclusive community where all pupils are treated with dignity and no pupil or adult is bullied or stereotyped due to their sexuality, gender-identity or other perceived differences.

The presentation has two main aims:

  • To promote the idea that we must treat all people fairly and equally, regardless of sexuality, gender-identity or other differences.
  • To educate pupils so that they learn to avoid discriminatory and abusive language towards minority groups, such as the LGBT+ community.

This can be a sensitive issue and the presenter will be respectful of the fact that pupils come from a range of traditions on the matter. If you wish to discuss this further, please contact the school and ask to speak to Mr Adams or Mr Simson.

Year 10 at Birmingham Childrens’ Hospitial

As part of Healthcare Science week, a group of Year 10 pupils spent the day at the Birmingham Childrens’ hospital, where they found out about the laboratories, The Heart Investigations Unit and neurophysiology. They had a tour of the hospital and presented their findings, then in groups they helped the hospital to produce new “young-people” friendly literature regarding the Neurophysiology investigations which will go on to be used with real patients! They were a real credit to the school throughout the event.
