Year 8 'Dazzling' Science
Year 8 enjoyed a sparkling science lesson on the topic of burning metals. Students were made aware of the risks involved and took all the appropriate precautions. Practical science is essential to stimulate interest and embed learning. The students were fascinated by the experiment and eager to learn more.

Be Smart Be Safe
The social media sessions were run by Sharon Girling OBE, an ex-police officer who provided a very informative session. Students and parents were surprised at the levels of risk involved in communicating electronically and the dangers that young people were placing themselves in, with regard to their personal safety and the law.
The drugs session was run by a police officer and parents after the session felt that they had learnt a great deal and that it would benefit other parents, by raising awareness, if we could arrange a repeat of the evening. Approximately sixty parents attended the evening from across all year groups. The evening lasted longer than intended as parents had a number of questions and concerns that they were able to discuss with the experts.
Our PTA, The Winston School Association, is run by a small team of enthusiastic parents who want to support the education of all the children at Winston. They make a difference.Plans are in place to refurbish at least two science labs in the summer holiday and should the PTA receive further donations, it would be possible to ensure that the final lab was replaced at the same time. Currently the PTA have donated £15,000 towards the cost, if you are able to commit even a small sum this would improve the facilities for all students over the coming years. Donations can be made via the PTA website which can be accessed via the main school website. Each science lab costs £30,000 to replace.
The PTA makes a tremendous contribution to our school, aiming to support projects that will benefit all students. Can you provide a small amount of time to help maintain our PTA? Your child benefits through the provision of equipment and facilities and this in turn allows me the opportunity to spend school funds on additional teachers. Without the PTA the school will lose its charitable status, which brings a range of benefits to the school, especially being able to claim gift aid on donations. It is essential that we have twelve members and that at least eight attend the meetings, otherwise funds cannot be accessed by the school. I need your help with this, there are a number of projects that I would like to bring to fruition, including the creation of a new school library and improvements to the school hall, which I can only achieve with a team of enthusiastic parents, who in turn need general parental support.
that you are prepared to give some time to the PTA, to enable the positive work
