Jan & Feb 2019 Bulletin

“A belated Happy New Year to everyone and I wish you all the best for the remainder of the year.

Our new year news is the appointment of our new Principal, Sadie Batstone. Sadie will begin her new role after the Easter holiday. At this point, she will lead the college for three days per week whilst I will continue in post for the other two days. This has been agreed with Long Field Academy, Sadie’s current employer, so that Sadie can support the Year 11 pupils at Long Field in the lead up to their GCSE exams. It also provides a period of transition which I am sure will be in everyone’s best interests. Sadie will be full-time after the May half-term holiday.”

Welcome to Brockington College

Brockington College, a Church of England Academy, is committed to serving its community by providing an education of the highest quality within the context of Christian belief and practice.

In our distinctive and caring environment, we actively encourage a sense of responsibility, respect and concern for all.

Our challenging curriculum, wider opportunities and Christian values promote achievement, success and the development of confident, considerate and articulate citizens.

The college is at a very exciting time as we converted to Academy Trust Status in 2012 and subsequently resolved to change age range from 11-14 to 11-16 status.  Following consultation and the submission of a business case, we are delighted that the government has approved our business case and we will be an 11-16 school from September 2015.

As a community college we have a full programme of adult learning taking place and many local groups use the college for their functions and meetings.

Our Values

 

The school has seven key values that inform the school’s assembly programme; Collective Worship Programme and are the cornerstones for everything we do in school especially our core purpose of teaching and learning.

Our values are:

  • Compassion: Compassion is about putting yourself in someone else’s shoes and experiencing what they experience. This leads to a desire to act to do something. Compassion requires an act of imagination and humility to share in the lives of others

“It is so important to have compassion in all aspects of life. So many great chances for the better have been made out of compassion for all”

  • Forgiveness: Forgiveness is fundamental in a Christian School. It is about having forgiveness at the heart of everything we do and it is our aim to keep on forgiving without limit. Forgiveness requires both an acceptance and acknowledgement of what has gone wrong and a genuine desire not to do it again.

“A fundamental part of community is to forgive and forget”

  • Justice: Justice is multi-faceted. It is about giving all people what is right and fair for them to have such as freedom and dignity. It is about acting out of a concern for what is right and therefore holding people to account. Justice is about creating a community that knows everyone’s well-being is bound up with that of everyone else and is not just about a culture which encourages everyone to insist on their own rights at the expense of others.

“A school has to be a place of mutual trust and support where all members know they are equally valued – central to Justice”

  • Koinonia: Can often be translated as ‘Fellowship’ or ’Partnership’.  Koinonia expresses the quality of the relationships within a Christian Community which are like those of a family. Central to any family is interdependence. Everyone is needed and valued and important to the whole group. Each member of the family shares the joys and sufferings of the others and everyone depends upon everyone else.

“Being part of a Church community makes life at school seem more fulfilled”. 

  • Perseverance: Perseverance is linked to patience and suffering. Perseverance is about developing and building your character by dealing with a range of situations positively. It is linked to self-control and a recognition that life is sometimes difficult and painful and it is important not to give up. Perseverance is only possible when there is hope and hope is based on love and faithfulness.

“Perseverance is important in school and in life. People need to know that things are not easy but it is important to keep going”.

  • Wisdom:  Wisdom is insight into the way life works – a proper understanding of the consequences of our thoughts words and actions. Wisdom is discernment gained through life experience. The opposite of wisdom is foolishness, which is a wrong understanding of life. Foolishness is a lack of recognition of the true value of things and leads to people putting their trust in the wrong things.

“School is not just about academic learning; it is also about becoming wise as a human”

  • Learning: Learning is at the centre of our school motto and encompasses all of the values above. It is about being taught, being able to discover and understand. By modelling, teaching and discussing each of the values above we are enabling ourselves and our pupils to achieve our motto of ‘Learning to live life to the full’.

“Learning is an important Value to me because it is constant and central to life. To be able to learn from mistakes is something that is essential to life”
