Supporting Your Child During Exams

For young people taking examinations, there are a number of stresses and pressures. We as parents are keen to help and support, and “Young Minds” have produced an informative and helpful guide available here, and there is also a booklet regarding anxiety which is produced by Firefly available here. If you require further support or need to speak to us, please contact the school.

Parent View

We would like to remind parents that Ofsted’s “Parent View” facility is always open and allows you to give feedback across a range of areas. Please click here to access the site, where you will be prompted to login or create a new account. You can also access this page through our “School Performance” tab, in the Ofsted section.

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

Parental Safeguarding Incident

On Wednesday 19th June at approximately 3.45pm a pupil was approached by an adult male near Braceby Road and physically assaulted from behind along with racist verbal abuse. The male is described as white, mid 40s, large build, short dark hair and beard plus distinctive tattoos on both arms.

As always please remind your child to be extra vigilant on their journey to and from school so that they are aware of what is going on around them.

Year 11 leavers Pupil Alumni…We want your support!

When you finish your exams this summer, we don’t want that to be the last time you’re in touch with us. A ‘pupil alumni’ is where we keep in touch with our leavers and their career progressions. We have a growing network of relateable role models with pupils that want to keep in touch and who would like to support the school. Ex-pupils can really make a difference to transform younger pupils’ confidence, motivation, skills and understanding of their future pathways. We may invite you to activities such as the Careers Fair, Careers Insight Talks and activities, Year 9 and 11 Options talks, Practice Interviews, offering work experience, mentoring or volunteering in other aspects of school life.

The benefits to you include; Staying connected, Support could lead to an additional reference, Evidence for your CV, Helps with university personal statements, but most of all the satisfaction of helping to inspire others.
