A MESSAGE FROM THE HEADTEACHER I am glad to be contacting you all again, not because of a snow day closure, but to introduce our latest edition of Ecco magazine. Thank you for your patience and understanding regarding closing the school on those treacherous and snowy days. To close, is the last thing that I want to do as I wholeheartedly believe that being at school, attending every day and being able to access all the lessons, activities and opportunities that we offer, can only enhance achievement and secure the positive personal development outcomes that we all strive for. My first term as Headteacher has brought me many proud moments as I have witnessed students growing up into adults, showing their resilience and contributing to the community and our school in many diverse and fantastic ways. This magazine is full of the amazing things they have done so I will say no more, except to say that they are part of the reason that this school is a positive, caring and enjoyable place to be in. I would ask that you continue to support our school in its journey to achieve the highest of standards, values and culture that will positively affect everyone. My focus has been on improving the learning climate in lessons and around the school social areas so that every student can access the very best opportunities available to them. I have made it clear that respectful, tolerant and caring qualities are required at all times within our interactions. When this does not happen, clear choices and guidance are offered by our staff n a supportive way, which gives the opportunity for students to return to positive behaviours and continue to access the learning they deserve.

I understand that this increased focus on culture and behaviours is not always easy for our students to grasp straight off and we will go through some difficult times together. I will not lessen this focus and I will not let you down as I know that alongside achieving their academic potentials your main focus is that your young people progress through this school in a happy, secure and supportive environment where they leave us as confident, independent and respectful young adults who have core values, morals and ethics that they can be rightly proud of. I encourage you to continue to contact the school or myself whenever you need and I hope we are continually meeting your expectations in terms of the pastoral and academic care that we deliver. I am continuing to focus on driving up standards in all our processes and our journey is showing an ever upwards direction of travel. The school staff are working extremely hard to continually focus on this priority and I know that you would like to join me in publically thanking them for everything they do, every minute of every day and for the ‘above and beyond’ that they so outwardly show towards our students and community. Thank you Ecco staff and students. Gail Stonier Headteacher

STAFF CHRISTMAS JUMPER DAY

MEET ECCLESFIELD’S HE GURU!

Once again staff dusted off their antlers and donned their garish jumpers all in the name of charity! This year’s good cause was something very close to Ms Brennan’s heart. Below is a copy of her plea to the staff and students of the school.

Lewis Parker is our Higher Education Engagement Assistant, and since the end of last year has been working with Ecclesfield students to increase their knowledge of Higher Education, making them aware of the routes available to them as well as the advantages of further study. So far, particular highlights have included taking a group of Y10s to a University of Sheffield taster day, and organising two days of Y9 participation on the HeppSY+ Mobile Classroom (pictured), where pupils engaged in sessions led by student ambassadors such as creating their own university societies and learning why HE could be right for them. Plenty more exciting opportunities are planned for the remainder of the school year – in the meantime. Any students who want to know more about higher education can find Lewis in Careers room W209.

Staff dressed up in their festive gear and made a donation for the honour of looking ridiculous and students were asked to donate books to the good cause after the Christmas break, and donate they did – we managed to fill three huge boxes of donated books and some of them contained lovely, heartfelt messages from our students to those in Lebanon. We also managed to raise over £280 from staff donations. Once again, the community of Ecclesfield rallied together to make a difference to those in need. Well done to all who were involved and we’ll keep you posted with updates from this tremendous cause.

Mr R Walkden, Deputy Headteacher

Y8 PRINCES TRUST MOSAIC MENTORING PROGRAMME A group of Y8 students have embarked on a new Princes Trust Mosaic Mentoring Program. Ecclesfield has been paired with the Fire Service, who will meet with students over the coming academic year. Mentors will meet students 7 times to help develop critical thinking, organisation and employability skills. Students will also be visiting a fire station as part of the program, to see how the skills they have discussed are used in the work place. We are really thankful for the Fire Service mentors who have volunteered their time to help and are sure that the students will learn a lot from taking part in the program.

CHURCHILL CHARITY DRIVE

Y10 LINGUSISTS

Churchill’s House Captains identified charity as being a key area of focus for this academic year and they started to plan how they could make a difference to the lives of your people with long term illness via our nominated House charity ‘Make -a-Wish’. It all started with an opportunity being seized at the Christmas Fayre when the House Captains made and sold Christmas decorations, entice people to try and land a ping pong ball in a jar and even challenged students and parents to try and balance 20p on the top of a lemon (it sounds easier than it was). A real star of the show was Mr Firth’s Mentor Group, CJF, who wrote to several local businesses and asked for donations for a raffle. The student leaders and CJF sold over £250 worth of tickets which was mind blowing. Some of the great prizes were football tickets, paintballing vouchers and chocolates. Another good deed done by Churchill House. Well done, Team Churchill #WACAW

Commitment is never in short supply down in the MFL department. On a Tuesday after school, our top Y10 linguists have been giving up their own time to attend workshops to improve their speaking skills. They have been working together with students from our local colleges as well as the University of Sheffield to develop the fluency and spontaneity that they will need in the new MFL GCSEs. They have combined this with a weekly, high level grammar focus to ensure that they are fully prepared for anything that the exams can throw at them. Speaking is considered by both staff and students to be the most difficult and nerve-wracking MFL skill, so we are especially proud of our pupils who are taking every opportunity to face it head on. Well done to all involved and keep up the hard work!

Y10 Photography students work with a professional photographer with the help of "closing the gap" grant.

A 1000-YEAR-OLD BOY CAME TO ECCLESFIELD

Professional photographer Gavin Joynt spent a day working with our Y10 photography students on an Architecture themed workshop. Students explored various photography techniques and experimented with a new app Hypstermatic to improve their photography skills. Exploring the school building they managed to capture Ecclesfield in a completely new light and all produced images to be excited about. Students are now expanding the knowledge the gained on the experience to produce a project linked to the artist introduced during the session with Gavin.

Not literally, but in the form of a story written by the amazing author Ross Welford. On the 8th of February 2018 the whole of Year 7 gathered excitedly in the hall to hear Ross read from his latest book and discuss the trials and tribulations that being 1000-year-old boy would bring. His vivid imagination, accompanied by some impressive magic tricks, fired students to create their own story and enthused them to read his books which resulted in a book buying and signing frenzy.

The experience was a positive one for all and some even indicated that they may wish to study photography when they leave school.

A 1000-year-old boy is the latest title from the ‘Ecco Shared Shelf ‘reading initiative and is available to borrow from the school library.

"I think I would do photography when I leave school, it was great working with a professional because we were given professional feedback about our work." Shannon "It was really special to work with a photographer" Sally "I learnt how to use techniques such as different angles like looking up and Hypstermatic to improve my photos" Callie "It was really good, we were able to get more professional photos" Amara "I want to do photography when I leave school" Jay

MONKEY BAY FUND Over the past three years Rowling House has supported the Monkeybay Fund in Milawi as our House charity. The students have raised a fantastic £3453 over that time through non-uniform days, bake sales and selling handmade jewellery and toys. Unfortunately, the Monkeybay Fund charity has now closed, and we would like to thank the people behind the charity for all their inspirational work over the years, and for kindly naming the nursery school that was built using money we raised after Rowling House. We are now in the process of choosing a new house charity. We’ve had a few suggestions and will be putting it to the students of Rowling house to vote for the winner. Watch this space.

GCSE Photography students get more out of a visit than they expected.. Y10 and Y11 students studying GCSE photography had the opportunity to visit Longley 6th form college and work with the art department on some of their portrait photography course work. It was a huge success and I feel the students who took part should be commended on their manners and behavior they were a credit to Ecclesfield School and I was extremely proud to be there with them. The photography students were taught by the media and photography teachers and also given guidance by some of our own passed Ecco students who started studying at the college in 2017 and are now studying A-level art at the college. Everyone produced a finished outcome that will be used towards the CW and some of the students walked away with a little more. Jay Danforth secured a work placement with Tim the photographer lecturer who is keen for Jay to demonstrate some of his Photoshop skills which he has gained from his lessons with Miss Lindley. The visit also gave students such as Jonathon Johnson the initiative to take a further look at the possibilities of what Longley could offer him in the future. Sally overcome some huge barriers and not only came along but looked as though she fully enjoyed every minute and produced a lovely outcome that will contribute towards her coursework, she even mentioned that shed quite like to go there when she finishes school. "It was a great day and I have left with lots of ideas for my projects" Y11

Y10 BUSINESS MENTORING February saw the start of a brand new initiative to help equip our Y10 students with the skills and attributes needed to succeed in life beyond Ecclesfield. Working in partnership with the Sheffield Enterprise Advisor Network, we have created a program of business mentoring, to help raise the aspirations of our students. We have successfully recruited a team of mentors from the business world who have volunteered to mentor a small group of students. We have representatives from a wide variety of companies and different industries including Keir, The Home Office and private company directors.

VOLUNTEER IT YOURSELF A group of Y10 students have volunteered to take part in a new volunteering programme called Volunteer It Yourself, which aims to help our community, teach new DIY skills and give an insight into working in a trade industry. VIY combines volunteering and DIY by challenging young people aged 14-24 to learn trade and building skills, on the job, by helping to renovate and repair community buildings.

Participants are mentored by professional tradespeople, who also volunteer their time, and can gain vocational skills accreditations as well as access Mentors will work with students in small groups over to further training, work placement and six sessions, during the coming academic year.

The Year 8 team have had a fantastic season so far. The girls are growing in confidence and understanding tactics and rules much better. We have had a few fixtures cancelled recently but the pictures below show their fixture against All Saints and King Ecgberts, where they won both their games.

In the afternoon students took part in a Walking Talking Mock to develop exam technique.

We have also now selected our Y10 DofE cohort. Congratulations to those pupils that have been selected, there were over 60 applications.

The Y7 A football team have had a great start to their time at Ecclesfield school, going unbeaten in all their matches so far in the league and then reaching the quarter finals of the Sheffield and South Yorkshire cup, whilst also making it into the last 128 teams of the National cup. Looking forward we have 5 fixtures left in the league before hopefully reaching the playoffs. Throughout all their matches the team have shown an abundance of passion and determination to play and give their all for Ecclesfield school and their team mates, I as the manager couldn’t ask for any more from them and it has been a pleasure to have coached them so far.

WORLD ECCO BOOK DAY Despite the snow causing disruption to our original World Book Day plans, we persevered and on Friday the 9th of March we held the first Ecco Book Day. Amongst other competitions and book based activities taking place across the school, we again encouraged staff to dress up as their favourite book characters – congratulations to Mr Biggane in the Maths department who won the individual dress-up prize and to the MFL department for their fantastic team effort! We carried on the tradition of reading ‘The Ecco Story’ with pupils getting an instalment of a story based here in Ecclesfield school in each of their five periods throughout the day. This year the mystery was based on the disappearance of various Ecclesfield students. One curious pupil was keen to get to the bottom of the mystery, only to discover that the evil Mr Smithard had been trialling a new method of behaviour management which involved students continuously repeating the school rules as though they were performing for an audience. Just like last year, there was a brilliant buzz around school all day, and most importantly, it got us all talking about books! A massive thank you to our wonderful librarian for all of her hard work and for everyone who got involved throughout the day – we hope to continue this fabulous tradition for years to come.
