The Big Ambition
All school leaders were asked recently to make students and parents/carers aware of ‘The Big Ambition’. This is a survey set up by the Children’s Commissioner Dame Rachel de Souza. The Children’s commissioner is a non-party political role whose job it is to champion the rights of children across the country. You can find out more about the commissioner’s work on her website here.
The Big Ambition is a survey aimed at all young people to ask them about themselves, their experiences to date and their ambitions for the future. Obviously I don’t know what will come of it, but I’m happy to make everyone aware of it in case students or parents wish to fill it in. The survey can be accessed here.
Finally today a reminder that next Friday (1st December) is a training day for staff. Adults will therefore be in the building but the school is closed to all students. We’re back open as usual from Monday 4th December, through to the final day of term on Friday 22nd December. We’d love to see all students in every day in the run up to Christmas. As I said in assembly this week to most year groups, simply turning up is the most important thing that students can do.
