Update from Mr. Wilding - 15th November 2022

Posted 15th November 2022

Update from Mr. Wilding - 15th November 2022

Mr Wilding has issued an update to parents and carers regarding the recent LCS OFSTED inspection, Parent/Carer Survey results, School Production, Roadworks and E-Safety.

To all parents and carers, 

Good afternoon, from LCS. There are a few important notices and updates I would like to draw your attention to today.

OFSTED Inspection

We have received and responded to the draft OFSTED Report, following our full Inspection on 19th and 20th October.  We now await publication of the final Report, which will be made available via our school website. I will inform all students, parents and carers when this final Report is published.

Parent/Carer Survey

Results of our recent Parent/Carer survey can now be viewed on our school website, at the link below. Thank you to all parents/carers who took part in survey, the results of which were extremely positive.

OFSTED conducted their own Parent/Carer Survey as part of our recent Inspection, results of which can be viewed on the OFSTED Parentview website. As with our own school survey, all responses and feedback will be considered, as we continue to aim to improve our work with all our school stakeholders.

School Production - The Addams Family

On the evenings of 7th/8th/9th December, LCS students will be performing on stage, in our own version of The Addams Family.

This will be our first school show since before the Covid-19 pandemic and I very much hope as many parents and carers as possible will be able to join us in the audience.

Ticket details will follow soon, so please look out for updates via email and on our social media platforms.

Roadworks

The roadworks on Pastures Hill have been suspended for the time being, but may return during the February half-term holidays, in 2023.

I would like to thank the majority of parents who adapted their usual plans or behaved accordingly when bringing and collecting students from school, during what was an extremely disruptive time.

I remain concerned about the behaviour of some parents/carers when collecting students in vehicles outside, or close to, the school site and I would respectfully continue to ask all parents/carers to consider the safety of all our students at all times.

WhatsApp Group Chats

As part of our regular reminders to students, parents and carers about the dangers of social media, I have attached information to my update today around student safety on WhatsApp.

As many parents/carers use WhatsApp themselves, some believe it is safer for students than other forms of social media. WhatsApp has become one of most common forms of social media where issues are caused in school, however, particularly when students engage in Group Chats. The age limit for users of WhatsApp is 16, although we are seeing problems around its use with students as young as Year 7.

The link below is to a brief safety guide for parents/carers to help us all keep our young people safe on WhatsApp and to, hopefully, reduce the issues students are bring into school, from their use of social media.

Thank you for your continued support of our school.

Keep safe. 

J. Wilding
Headteacher

About LCS

Mr Wilding - LCS Acting Headteacher

Welcome to Littleover Community School.

I am lucky enough to have worked at the school since September 2000 and, in January 2020, was asked by Governors to take on the role of Acting Headteacher.  Having now been confirmed as permanent Headteacher in March 2021, I will continue to do everything I can to make LCS the best school it can possibly be, whilst maintaining the safety and wellbeing of all our young people.

We are a large comprehensive secondary school, located to the south west of the City of Derby, close to the main transport routes of the A38 and A50. We pride ourselves on the excellent teaching we provide for all our students, as well as the care and support all students receive to help them achieve their best.

We are committed to a broad and balanced curriculum and our students have achieved outstanding results at both GCSE and A Level for many years now. We also believe in providing all our students with wider opportunities for learning and developing through their work in the classroom, as well as access to extra-curricular opportunities in sport and performing arts.

I hope you find our website informative and easy to use.  We are always happy to receive ideas of how we can improve our service to parents, carers, students and our community. 

If you have any ideas or questions about anything on our website, or more widely about the school, please do not hesitate to contact us.  If you would like a paper copy of our school brochure or paper copies of any of the information contained on our website, these are also available, free of charge.

Littleover Community School.
Learning, Caring, Succeeding.

Mr J. Wilding
Headteacher
