Behaviour and attendance rewards

Attendance and behaviour rewards

Alongside the very popular Quad biking and paintball reward trip we also offered
an alternative reward. Josh and David enjoyed a day out where they ate a lovely
cooked breakfast followed by a trip the cinema to watch 'Jupiter Ascending'.
Both boys thoroughly enjoyed the film as did the staff. The pick 'n' Mix was nice too!
When the film had finished everyone made their way to star city to try and be the top
token collector in the Arcade. After a very competitive motorbike race and a few
close shaves with some zombies.
Josh, David, Annette and Alexia all agreed it was a wonderful day out.
David even went as far as to say it was, 'Brilliant, the best and lots of fun'

 

Newman University partnership

An exciting partnership is developing between Newman University Birmingham and Lindsworth school
with the Lindsworth sharing outstanding practice through the hosting of placements and knowledge
enhancement opportunities for teacher trainees. This initiative furthers the training of young post graduate
students who seek to draw from the wealth of experience and skills demonstrated and modelled by staff
at Lindsworth school. As this partnership grows, it is envisaged that placement opportunities will become
an integral part of training and not only provide trainees with an enriching experience but facilitate
opportunities for Lindsworth to select highly qualified, passionate and creative teachers to strengthen
educational provision already on offer at the school.

Sports hall Athletics @ Bishop Challenor Catholic Sports College

Sports hall Athletics @ Bishop Challenor Catholic Sports College

As part of our continuing link with Baverstock School Sports Partnership, 7 of our lower school boys were selected to represent the school in a Sportshall Athletics event hosted at Bishop Challoner Catholic Sports College.

The pupils competed against six main stream schools in the Baverstock borough including, Wheelers lane, Kings Norton Boys and Bishop Challoner. The boys’ behaviour was excellent and continued to meet our high expectations of behaviour offsite. They all did their bit to uphold our current offsite behaviour record and help develop our reputation with other local schools. 

The pupils were allocated two track events and one field event and each needed to perform to the best of their ability to be successful. Reuben Johnson Simms, Miles Kelly, Jaimique Malone Meade, Dalarno Clarke, Tyrelle Lawrence, Blake May and Rashuan Blake were the pupils involved and each of the boys did themselves and the school very proud. Many of the boys in year 7 competed against boys in Year 8 so their achievement is even more exceptional and impressive. The "stand out" performance of the night was the 4 x 2 lap relay race, which was highly contested by all schools and unfortunately Lindsworth only just missed out on a podium spot.

The boys were a little apprehensive to get involved in a warm up with other schools in such a large venue. However with encouragement from a few key members the group got involved in warming up with the other schools. As soon as the competition began the boys were ready to start competing and by the end of the event the pupils had given their all so eagerly listened to hear the final standings. They were extremely pleased to hear that they finished 3rd  in their area but just missed out on securing a place in the national finals?????

The boys were a credit to the school and all staff involved are extremely proud of their achievements. Well done to all the boys, and hopefully this success can be accredited to continued involvement in future events and potential achievements.

 

 

 

 

 

Multi-sports event with Shenstone Lodge – The Brades at the Ryland Centre

multi sports

As part of our growing link with The Brades, twelve of our boys were selected to be involved in a multisport event hosted at a large sports hall @ The Ryland Centre, Bromsgrove.

After a short minibus journey the pupils arrived excited and in high spirits to the centre which would host the event. The pupils were split into even ability groups and paired with even ability counterparts from the Brades to result in four mixed-school teams. The pupils competed alongside and against peers from both schools in Football, Uni-hock, Handball, Dodgeball and Basketball. All the events suited different teams with a number of standout performances from each pupil in at least one of the games.

The boys were initially disapproving of mixing the sides when it was first suggested, but true to form they got over that very quickly when the competition kicked in. The will to win overcame that of not wanting to mix and they competed for just shy of four hours without one argument or disagreement. The dodgeball event was the only one the pupils competed school vs. school, which causing that much of a storm it set the fire alarms off. The boys responded well to the false alarm and after being given the all clear went back into the venue to finish the day with a highly contested basketball match. At the end of the event pupils from Lindsworth admitted it was a good idea to mix the teams and saw the value of competing in mixed teams to socialise with others.

The Lindsworth boys and the Brades pupils were a credit to their establishments and all the staff involved are extremely proud of their achievement. Well done to all involved, a fantastic success and we look forward to another event of a similar nature in the New Year.
