    5th March 2014

    The second Aspire to Achieve day for the 2013/2014 academic year has been very successful and has now become more established within the school curriculum for all pupils and staff. The day which took place on the 4th March was received with positive attitudes all round and proved to demonstrate the vision we have at Cumberland to contribute to the personal development of all our pupils. Year 7’s were improving their key skills for personal development and included:  Develop the strategies for resisting unhelpful peer influence and pressure  Identify how managing feelings and emotions effectively supports decision-making and managing risk  Use social skills to build and maintain a range of positive relationships Year 8’s and 9’s were improving their key skills for personal development and included:  To identify and use strategies for setting and meeting personal targets in order to increase motivation.  Assess and manage the element of risk in personal choices and situations KS3 pupils had the opportunity to improve these skills through attending various workshops which were delivered by outside agencies. All pupils recognised the importance of learning these skills and the impact of these programmes are evident in the way the pupils conducted themselves in the workshops and around the school, these could be seem in the dramatic drop in negative referrals. Well done, KS3! Ms Bailey Read More

    The History department took 24 Year 8 pupils to the Imperial War Museum on Tuesday 4th March for the first day of an exciting 5-day project entitled “New Perspectives”. The project is part of the IWM’s commemoration programme for the centenary of the First World War – and the History department is proud to have been selected as one of only four schools across London to be partnered with the IWM on this exciting project. The 24 pupils spent the day working with museum staff, exploring archival evidence relating to the First World War in Africa and examining untold and often overlooked parts of history from the First World War. They then worked with animators from Chocolate Films, a media company – to experiment with different animation styles. The pupils enjoyed their day out immensely and the opportunity to work with professionals developing their historical research, creative and team work skills. Mr Hussain Read More
