“Whenever you want to achieve something, keep your eyes open, concentrate and make sure you know exactly what it is you want. No one can hit their target with their eyes closed.” Paulo Coelho
At Cecil Jones we believe that all students should be able to achieve their potential. As Year 9 students you are expected to maintain the highest standards of engagement, behaviour, homework and presentation to help you progress towards this goal.
Along with academic achievements, we would also like our Year 9 students to become valuable members of the school and wider community. This can be done by always being courteous, respectful and kind towards others, as well as volunteering to help in any way you can.
Year 9 is an important year for all students as they embark on the final year of Key Stage 3, and choose their options subjects for their GCSE exams. This year is crucial for laying the foundations that will help you build towards the Year 11 examinations. All students in Year 9 are seen as young adults, and will be treated as such, with the expectation that they are capable of making their own decisions about learning and the choices that they make. All students are expected to follow the school Code of Conduct and must be in the right place, at the right time, doing the right thing. Letters, certificates and prizes are given for outstanding work and sanctions are used when students do not meet our high standards.
As Achievement Team Leader, I am responsible for the learning and achievement of all students within the year group. The Year Care Team and form tutors are there to support and guide your child through daily life.
Please do contact the school if there are any issues or concerns that you may have.
I look forward to a very successful year with lots to celebrate and lots of effort from every member of
Achievement Team Leader
