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.

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. For more information about Tapestry, follow the web link below:

It was a pleasure to welcome our governors, parents, colleagues and ex-colleagues and of course the class of 2018 to this year’s Certificate Evening on 22nd November. Prizes were again very generously sponsored again by our neighbour South and City College, for which we are very grateful, and Mr Paul Morris attended on behalf of the College to award the prizes and address the hall. The evening is all about celebrating the hard work and achievement of our outgoing Year 11 pupils, and awarding some individual prizes for outstanding achievement and progress and resilience in the face of difficulty.

Bronze: Rights Committed!

Bronze: Rights Committed!

We are proud to inform our parents, pupils and wider community that Hall Green School has been working towards embedding the values and principals of the UNICEF Rights Respecting Schools Award and is now recognised as achieving “Bronze” status. The next stage on our rights respecting journey is to achieve Silver: Rights Aware, which we are currently working hard to achieve! The UNICEF RRSA helps develop pupils’ acceptance of difference and diversity, and provides them with a strong moral compass. In Rights Respecting Schools children’s rights are promoted and realised, adults and children work towards this goal together.

Yr 11 Mock Exams

Yr 11 Mock Exams

The main Yr 11 Mock exams begin on Tuesday 4th December and pupils should be revising regularly at home in preparation. Our advice is that pupils aim to schedule 2 or 3 forty five minute revision sessions every evening, with 4 or 5 sessions at the weekend as well. The pupils recently had a series of revision workshops in school and know how and what to revise at home. If parents have any questions about the mock exams they should contact Mr Hosfield at school. Good luck to all those taking mock exams this December.
