We have had a busy start to the school year at Bishop Luffa School. It is wonderful to have all our students back in school and embracing life in all its fullness.
We were particularly excited to welcome our new Year 7s who were unable to join us for a transition day in the summer term, although many of them were able to spend some time getting to know the school at the Summer School which ran for a week at the start of the summer holidays.
The Year 7s spent their first day getting to know their tutor group before Positively YOU gave a great session, showing the students creative approaches to learning. The whole year group came together at the end of the day for afternoon tea on the school field. Mr Topley, Assistant Headteacher talked to the students about how to have ‘HOPE’ at Bishop Luffa.
H – be happy – remember to smile – it’s an act of kindness to others and ourselves.
O – be organised – if you’re not, then find someone that is and get them to teach you – if you are, then help someone else!
P – persevere – so important to realise that if you haven’t understood or mastered something, it’s temporary.
E – enthusiasm – you need this in your learning and experiences in school – get involved in lessons and join clubs.
We also welcomed old and new students to the Sixth Form and they spent their first day getting to know each other and what life will be like in the Sixth Form at Bishop Luffa School.
The school community came together on Tuesday 7th September for a whole school assembly. It was amazing to finally have the opportunity to come together on the school field, with the assembly being led by Mr Hindman and our School Captains, Funmi Ajayi and Joe Clines.
