A Cover Supervisor is a suitably-trained member of school staff who supervises students carrying out pre-prepared exercises when teaching staff are on short-term absence. The cover supervisor’s main job is to manage a classroom, ensuring that students remain on task with the work they have been set.

Photo of the winning students whose photos of ‘Life in the Hope Valley’ were selected for the Rotary club calendar.

Ann Ironmonger came in to present them with prizes and all students have taken a calendar home. A calendar that shows off the students photographic skills and love of the area.
Copies of the calendar are available to purchase from Reception.

As part of International Women’s Day a number of Year 10 girls visited Graham Construction, who are the main contractor building the new nuclear submarine engine factory in Derby. The day focussed on challenging stereotypes of working in construction, and involved a site induction, talk on job opportunities and prospects for women, as well as highlighting a number of current, successful, high ranking women employees within the company.

Following an excellent lunch the girls were treated to a guided site tour, a ‘people like me’ activity and a networking opportunity with female employees, finding out about their career paths, roles and aspirations. Thank you to all concerned for an enjoyable and informative day.

Continued success for Y11 student Ellen Robbins Wilkinson. Following her success representing GB in the U17 European Championships in Sochi, Ellen has now been chosen to be part of the U20 fencing squad and will compete in the junior commonwealth championships in July.
