Executive Principal’s Blog – 20 March 2015

On Tuesday of this week it was fantastic to see so many parents and students from both Bushey Meads and Little Reddings School at our evening for Highly Able students. Superbly led by Assistant Headteacher Mr Fisher, the evening reminded students of what is possible when you cultivate a ‘growth mindset’ as opposed to a ‘fixed mindset.’

Inspring presentations made by so many of our talented students from all year groups in the school showcased some outstanding work across every area of the curriculum. They strongly encouraged all who were present to continue to engage fully in their lessons and extra-curricular activities and ensure that they always go the extra mile with any learning activity set – either in school or for home learning.

The idea of super-curricular learning was also promoted and showcased, these being learning activities that students complete without even being asked to do so; Year 8 students having a go at A level Maths questions, students learning a musical instrument, dancing or participating in a sport outside of school and others writing poetry or short stories in their spare time.

What we are planning to do now is showcase the presentations to all students at Bushey Meads as a way of inspiring everyone to aim high, reach their potential and truly Aspire to Achieve.

We come to the end of another very busy week at the school which has had a real focus on Health and Fitness. Alongside all the usual varied PE activities taking place we have also seen many students taking part in the Inter-house Netball and Football events, a Healthy Eating Master Chef Competition on Tuesday after school and of course the Annual Fun Run. I would like to thank the PE and Health Faculty and all staff for their continued hard work and commitment to the school.
