Weekly Bulletin - Friday 22nd March 2024

It's been a busy week at Bodmin!! We have begun each day with an assembly on the theme of 'A Kinder Bodmin' where we have talked to the students about the importance of kindness to each other and the impact this has on our own mental wellbeing. As part of this, students were given the opportunity to complete 'Staff Appreciations'- many of them were heart-warming and showed their genuine appreciation for all that our staff do for them.

This week our Work Skills and Pathways students were given a glimpse of what it would be like working in the hospitality industry. Professional Chefs, Mark Lewin, Antony Riley and Fergus Coyle from the Cornwall Hospitality Collective supported the students to create some amazing dishes along with presentation techniques.

Some of our Year 10 & 11 students have been involved in Oxford University Chemistry workshops today and look to have had a great time learning directly from some of the best teachers in the UK.

Well done to all students who took part in a 20 mile coast path walk between Padstow and Bedruthan Steps last weekend. Students are building up their endurance in preparation for their next training walks on Bodmin Moor and Dartmoor after which the final teams will be chosen for the main Ten Tors event in May. Lots of mud, lots of hills and lots of very welcome sunshine after all the rain!

One again, as an SLT team we have been and will continue to support with uniform and equipment checks, specifically, at the beginning of each day and at tutor time. We ask for your support in ensuring that each child is ready to learn with the correct equipment and uniform. Our re-fresh of tutorial equipment checks with our children, has been a supportive process this week and we are seeing the majority of students happy and ready to learn for the day.

Last week we explained that we were adding additional trust support to our safeguarding and attendance team, it is absolutely a key priorities for the school and the importance of safeguarding as the golden thread that runs through everything that we do. It will remain our top priority for the school and we intend to invest even more to accelerate our improvement in this area.
