Nil desperandum auspice Deo - When God is on our side, there is no cause for despair. Independent Schools Inspectorate Progress Monitoring Visit form the school whether it will return to the usual cycle of inspection.

On Tuesday 3 rd November 2020, the School received an unannounced progress monitoring visit at the request of the Department for Education (DfE). This Progress Monitoring Review, focused on key lines of enquiry in the assessment of the implementation of the school’s action plan. It was to determine whether the school could demon- strate sufficient progress in regulatory compliance in rela- tion to non-compliant aspects identified at their previous inspection.

The Well-being and Recovery Curriculum

Stanborough Secondary School experienced many challenges in the last academic year, including the im- pact of COVID-19. We thank and praise God that He has sustained us. Knowing and understanding that pupils and staff had suffered trauma, loss and bereavement, would be uncertain about what school would look like, and would be anxious and fearful of contact with each other, the Curriculum leader and Pastoral leader worked together to develop a Well-being and Recovery Curriculum for the new academic year. Stanborough staff and pupils value relationships – it is often said that the school is like a family – so leaders knew that the first task would be to re-build relation- ships. School closed on 12 March, and the school switched to online teaching and learning (very success- fully!). Leaders also knew that a programme had to be put in place to help pupils and staff recover from their losses and to help pupils to value learning and use their time wisely, especially the Year 11s. The school’s values (Respect, Courage, Resilience and Excellence) underpin everything that we do, so time was spent on these values during the week before school started, in a ‘Back to School’ programme for both parents and pupils. More time was spent on the values during the first week of school. The Well-being and Recovery Curriculum is divided into three phases: 1. A Holistic approach – the first three weeks of school. 2. Focused recovery – personalized (individual pupils beginning with SEN pupils and those who are suffer- ing with anxiety and bereavement). 3. Deep recovery – a longer time period is required, as is parental and external agency involvement. 

These regulatory standards were:

Part 1, paragraph 3 (teaching)

Part 1, paragraph 4 (assessment)

Part 3, paragraphs 7 (safeguarding)

Part 3, paragraph 16 (risk assessment); NMS 6

Part 4, paragraphs 18 and 19 (safer recruitment of staff, supply staff))

Part 6, paragraph 32(1)(c) (provision of information)

The judgements in the report were shared with the leadership team, our Chair of Governors—Mrs Judy Clements and our Education Director—Mrs Gina Abbe- quaye on the day of the inspection and have been agreed corporately by the inspection team. Since then, it has been subject to ISI’s quality assurance procedures. We received a draft report on 12 th November 2020. We will receive the final report within the next 4 weeks and will then present the outcomes to the Board of Gover- nors, students and parents. Should the school meet all of the requirements of the Education (Independent School Standards) Regulations 2014, no further action will be required as a result of this visit. The DfE will in- ISSR Part 8, paragraph 34 (leadership and manage- ment).

after learning about what the soldiers had to go through during World War One. What I understand Remembrance Day to be is a time for remembering those who fought under less than de- sirable circumstances, so that we could live comfortably and peacefully today. Remembrance Day was an experience that not only left me grateful for the sacrifice that was made by everyone who served in the Great War, but also inspired me to strive for peace and unity in my community, out of grati- tude for the peace I am enjoying now. “ By Casey, Year 9 “ My experience of the Remembrance Day at the Peace Garden was a very wonderful one. Even though we are in a Global Pandemic, the small number of people that attended was able to show respect to the people who risked their lives for us (during World War I and II) to give us peace throughout the world. Everyone there showed their respect to those who have passed away and is thankful for those who are in the army today. It was lovely to see the Primary school youngsters bring their amazing artwork, which they have created in their free time and brought it to Stanborough Park Church. What Remembrance Day means to me Remembrance Day is a day where we show respect to those who lost their lives during World War I and II. Also on that day I like to appreciate the soldiers that are still in the army today training and working hard to protect our country .” By Jennifer, Year 9 “ On the 11th November, the Year 9 class went to the Stanborough Park Peace Garden to commemorate the lives lost in the First and Second World Wars. The wind whipped around as we stood in the cold, listening to the various speeches and watching as the wreaths were laid down. The one made by the Stanborough Primary school caught my eye; it was made with many red handprints put together. The two minute silence came, and we stayed still, thinking, remembering. The silence ended, and poppies were handed out, interviews and photos taken. Remembrance Day is a special time of year. It is ob- served by people all around the world, as it is a time to stop and think about all those soldiers who died fighting to keep us free. Whenever it comes around, I cannot help but feel grateful to those brave, selfless people. After all, greater love has no one than this, than to lay down one’s life for his friends (John 15:13). ” By Kari, Year 9

Presentation Policy We have introduced a presentation policy as presenta- tion of work is important to encourage pupils to:  Be proud of their achievements, by doing their best work and presenting it well  Value every lesson  Do their best quality work, in order to value their own learning  Persevere with tasks until completed and aesthetically pleasing  Respect the equipment they are given by using it with care. It is particularly important for parents to note the following responsibilities:  Ensure homework is completed neatly  Ensure books are stored safely at home if required  Ensure their child has a suitably sized bag to avoid work being damaged in transit between the school and home  Ensure that their child is correctly equipped for school each day Students to be given more time to prepare for 2021 exams The government is announcing the summer exam series will start on 7 June and end on 2 July for GCSEs. Results days are 27 August for GCSEs so students will start the following academic year as normal.  Assist and support pupils and staff in their well-being  Create an environment where pupils can express themselves freely and be supported The aims of the Well-being and Recovery Curriculum are to:  Create a safe environment and learning space for both pupils and staff  Acknowledge loss, trauma and bereavement and sup- port pupils in their recovery  Re-build relationships  Re-engage our pupils in their learning  Strengthen the resilience that we know both staff and pupils have (demonstrated during online lessons)

Remembrance Day We joined the One Vision and the British Union Conference (BUC) of Seventh-day Advent- ists in celebrating this year's Remembrance Day.

BUC Peace Garden Venue for Annual Remembrance Service in Watford:

Here is what our students have to say:

“ Remembrance Day felt much more relevant to me, hav- ing just recently studied about the consequences of the First World War in history. I obtained newfound respect for the soldiers who fought so that we could enjoy peace,

Year 6 transition meeting with primary school parents (virtual) Parents know how important it is to enroll their child in the right school. They want to be assured that their child will get a good education, be safe and make friends. The transition coordinator, Mrs Hussey, spoke to Stanborough Primary School parents (via Zoom) about the transition from Year 6 to Year 7 on Fri- day 18 September. She informed parents that the school offered a strong biblical foundation and values that would help develop their children’s charac- ters, holistically. Three pupils assisted her: Kari spoke about the KS3 mu- sic programme, Fae spoke about her experience in Year 7, and Fola spoke about first going to a different school and then joining Stanborough School a year later. Some parents responded positively and decided to make Stanborough Secondary School their first choice, and are looking forward to enrolling their children for the next academic year.

Year 11 Work Experience

Pupil Association Every year the pupils elect leaders for the Pupil Associa- tion in a fast-paced simulation of a real life parliamentary election. The Pupil Association is the voice of the pupils and is responsible for organizing social events. It has tak- en a keen interest in the Week of Spiritual Empha- sis programs. Candidates are nominated or put them- selves forward, present manifestos and are voted by se- cret ballot. This year, the candidates’ presentations had to be recorded, as pupils are not meeting for assemblies in the Assembly Hall. They are watching assemblies ‘Livestream’ from their classrooms. Voting will take place in the School canteen on Election day. Although work experience was cancelled over the summer due to COVID-19 restrictions, we managed to secure a wide range of jobs last week for our Year 11 cohort. As most of last year’s job selections no longer ex- isted, new jobs had to be sourced. The jobs ranged from learning how to run a hotel, working with disabled adults, or shadowing a furniture designer to assisting teachers. The work experience inspired many pupils to think seriously about a teaching profession, becoming an entrepreneur or running their own business. Many learnt new skills. We can only hope that their dreams and goals will also include God’s mission.

Community Services Day COVID-19 and all its restrictions could not quench the missionary zeal that Stanborough School has for service. Friday 9 October saw pupils and staff put their creative skills to work as they made cards for children in Watford General Hospital and packed food parcels for One Vision. Traditionally, pupils are taken off time table and serve the community in various ways. However, due to COVID-19, this could not be done. The Pastoral Leader, Mrs Ander- son, assisted by Mrs Mumbo, prepared all the activities and assigned them to each class. The pupils enjoyed be- ing off timetable and felt that it was a great experience to be able to help those in need. We pray that the gifts will help relieve the tedium of being in hospital. The food parcels were delivered to Liz Burns, Vice Chair of One Vision, at Stanboroughpark Church. She was de- lighted that the food parcels each had a box of cereal and packets of pasta in them, as it was just what was needed for that week! The generosity of the Stanborough School community is much appreciated.

World Fitness Day

Stanborough School values the holistic development of its pupils and promotes the NEWSTART health programme. Pupils are encouraged to keep fit and to pay attention to health principles. World Fitness Day was celebrated on 23 September, with Sam Sears, a personal trainer, coming in to Stanborough School to motivate pupils. He did a series of different exercises that most pupils participat- ed in enthusiastically.
