There were a number of outstanding performing departments this year, these include English, Expressive Arts, French, Information Technology, PE and Science.
We are incredibly proud of our pupils and staff.
As the new year starts I would like to introduce our new Vision and Values to you. These were devised by pupils, staff, Governors and parents and encapsulate all that we are striving to achieve at Philips High School.
Our Vision and Values
“Be a STAR at Philips High School”
Striving for success: Our commitment to high quality teaching and learning experiences provides the foundation for success. We recognise that success is not only found within the classroom but in many other areas and we develop and celebrate this.
Working Together: We foster positive working relationships with all: pupils, staff, parents, schools and colleges and the local, national and global community.
Aspire to Excellence: We recognise the potential in all of our pupils and provide opportunities that challenge their abilities. This will enable them to aspire to whatever goals and dreams they may have – for example, College, University or Apprenticeship.
Respect for All: We provide, promote and expect, a high level of support, guidance and care for everyone at Philips High School and the wider community.
Our School Development Plan
I was appointed Headteacher of Philips High School from Easter 2016. During the first term I learnt a lot about the strengths and areas for development. Following the very good exam results in August 2016, the School Development Plan (below) was formulated. You can see clearly our areas of focus for the coming year.
Our School Behaviour Policy
There have been some changes made to the Philips High School Behaviour Policy. The main points are:-
- Continue to focus on respect.
- Gold Standards Card (all pupils must carry at all times) – this is a ticket to a non-uniform day and it records positive and negative events.
- “C” System – detention on Friday (C5) will now be for 1 hour and 15 minutes for failing to attend a C4 detention.
- A “C3” detention will (in most cases) be held on the same night the detention is issued and will last for 30 minutes.
- A stepped approach for internal and external exclusion.
The Policy in full can be found on the website under School Policies.
I hope that you have found this information useful and if you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact the school.
