Chair's blog

On Tuesday evening the Parents' Forum were consulted on alternative assessment reporting models. I am sure that all who attended would like to thank Alan Davies for sharing his research with us. It is fair to say that the task of deciding on a model for St Ivo school is a huge undertaking...especially in light of the recent (and imminent) changes to national examination and grading systems.

On a lighter note......Don't forget to sign up for the SISA 200 Club.  Tickets are only available to purchase (via Parentmail)until 1/2.  After this date you will need to wait until September to be in with a chance of winning!

Fundraising: '200 Club' 2017

We often hear parents ask how they can support the school, especially in this difficult financial environment. 

SISA (the St Ivo School Association) is pleased to announce a new fundraising initiative to support the teaching and learning at St Ivo and at the same time, will give ‘pay back’ to those that buy into it in the form of a monthly prize draw.

For the remaining academic year we are planning to run a ‘200 Club’ to provide funds to support teaching and learning in the school for specific projects. Examples of previous purchases are high quality cameras for photography and specialist drawing boards for A Level Design Technology.

How it runs

IN-SCHOOL SUPPORT: Thank you, sprucers

A big thank you to those that helped in this year's spruce-up before the start of the new school year. 

We stained, swept, painted, pruned and weeded like champions - and the school looks that little bit better for it.

Thank you (in no particular order) to Andrea, Steve, Maria, Adrian, Louise, Elliot, Rebecca, Georgia, Dave, Phil, Jon, Jo and Linda - and Alan Davies (Assistant Head and SISA link).

If you'd like to take part in future spruce-ups, just register your interest on the following form or email sisa@stivoschool.org. We'd be delighted to see you.

SOCIAL: Quiz Night - 6th May



 
 
 

Please come along to the next SISA event: Quiz Night on the 6th May.
We are hoping to raise £220 for the Physics Department:
"The laser is used for the Young's slit practical and for the diffraction of light when showing wave particle duality for the new physics A-level.  It is also used to demonstrate total internal reflection in KS3 " - Ed Slingsby Head of Science.
It would be great if we could raise this money from one event - please book via parentmail (last page fourth item from the bottom).
