It was a busy weekend for our under 16 hockey team as they represented the South West in the National Indoor Hockey Finals. South Dartmoor did not start well and by the time they got into their stride it was too late for them to progress from the group stage. Notably they gave the eventual winners, Whitgift, the best and closest game of anybody at the tournament!
Next week we have commissioned a review of behaviour at South Dartmoor. Our last Ofsted inspection graded us as ‘outstanding’ for behaviour but we feel now is the time to take an objective look again and examine how good behaviour is at present and what areas for further development of our systems and approaches there may be. We will publish the findings after the review.
We have round two of Year 8 Parent/Teacher evening on Thursday 21st from 4-6pm in the Maths and English building and on Wednesday our Football Academy team play against Portsmouth FC.
As you may have noted on the website last week we are now operating Tuesday mornings as ‘Open Mornings’ for Parents and carers of current students. You are invited to visit the College between 9:30-11am every Tuesday morning. During this time, senior members of the College staff will be available to discuss any area of College life, or to walk you around the site and classrooms to view learning and the learning environment at South Dartmoor. Please contact us via main reception to book your place in advance, to ensure we have sufficient staff available to welcome you on arrival. We hope this initiative will give you another opportunity to interact with the College and to see lessons and your child’s learning experience first-hand.
