Headlines

We have been spending time this week looking ahead to the second half of this term, and considering how to approach the various events that are on the calendar bearing in mind the on-going challenges of Covid. Our planning is that there will be some adjustments to large events to ensure everyone is safe so keep an eye on notices in the SandPrint and via direct e-mail that highlight changes. We would like to operate as near normal as possible, but this is unlikely bearing in mind the number of cases being seen in Hertfordshire at the moment.

On Tuesday, 594 students received their Covid vaccination overseen by a large team of nurses from the NHS. I would like to thank the School Immunisation Team for their work in delivering this mass vaccination so efficiently on the day. The team were very complimentary about our students saying they were incredibly polite and well behaved. A big thank you to Mr Nicholls who oversaw the process in his usual highly-efficient manner. Moving forward, it seems that all 12 – 15 year olds will be able to book their own vaccinations, or possibly attend a walk-in vaccination centre. When we receive confirmation of this and details, we will pass them on to you.

This week, together with Ms Potter, I met with 110 fantastic Year 12 students interviewing for Senior Prefect positions. I was very impressed with how well all of the students presented themselves and it will be a difficult decision who we chose to appoint. An update will follow next half term.

In wider school news, we have been working on a long-term project to improve site-security which is now almost ready to go live. This £100k project involves automated gates at the front of the school as well as automated locking of all exterior doors on our teaching blocks across the campus. Full details of how this will operate during the day will be issued after half-term.

The rest of the SandPrint gives you a flavour of the various activities that have taken place this week and I would like to thank staff for delivering these. Immediately after half term, the two key events are the Autumn Concert on Wednesday evening in the SandPit followed by the virtual BeauSandVer consortium evening on Thursday for Year 11 students and their families.

Have a wonderful half-term break and I look forward to seeing you all back safe and sound at the start of November.

VACCINATIONS NEWS

We appreciate that not all students, whose families had provided consent, were in school or eligible to receive the vaccine earlier in the week when the NHS team visited. We have been informed that NHS England will soon offer 12 to 15 year olds the opportunity to get their COVID-19 vaccine out-of-school, such as through vaccination centres.

Parents of children aged 12 to 15 will receive a letter from the NHS with more information on the vaccination programme shortly, including information about how to book an appointment.  We will pass on any further details in the meantime, if we receive them, but have already been informed that there will not be a catch up session on site given the large number of students who were vaccinated earlier in the week.

CATERING NEWS

From 1st October, a new labelling legislation came into force with the introduction of Natasha’s Law. The new legislation requires all food pre-packaged for sale to contain clear labelling, outlining the entirety of its ingredients.  Our catering company, Chartwells, fully support the premise of the new legislation; to allow customers to make an informed and safe choice when selecting pre-packaged food. Under Chartwell’s pre-existing system, they provided a full allergen report for every food item they serve. This process has not changed. If your child has any questions at all about our food, please do encourage them to ask a member of the catering team, who have all conducted allergen training and they will be more than willing to help.

What has changed, is that items which have been pre-packaged for sale, such as fruit-pots or sandwiches, now have a clear label listing all the ingredients. Importantly, in addition to the new label guidance, we are still encouraging students with allergies or intolerances to continue engaging with team members around the suitability of specific products. Safety has always been, and will always remain, paramount to the way Chartwell’s operate. This law will not enhance or change their approach to this, but it will provide clear legislative guidance for how Chartwell’s deliver their service.

STUDENT SPOTLIGHT

A huge congratulations to Ellie N and Josephine L in Year 10 who completed a 5km run over the weekend in very muddy conditions to raise money for Cancer Research. They had several buckets of water thrown at them and were hosed with freezing cold water along the way so it was a real endurance test and together with family members, they raised over £1000 for Cancer Research. Well done on raising such a fantastic amount for such a worthwhile cause Ellie and Josephine. We are really proud of you.

If you would like your son/daughter to be featured in the Student Spotlight, please contact melissa.holian@sandringham.herts.sch.uk with some brief details and/or photos.

Well done to Austen who currently lead the House Cup race. Hepworth are not far behind followed by Turing to make up the podium at this point. A great start for Miss Batten in her first term in post!

In other news, 840 of our students have achieved their Extra Curricular Achievement in EPraise for regularly attending a club and 417 students have received their Representing the School Achievement for representing the school in a Sports fixture. Amazing work!

Thank you to Mr Cracknell for all his hard work co-ordinating House events and Extra Curricular activities (and most importantly for providing fancy bar charts.) And to big thank you to staff and students for embracing the new system.

PE NEWS

This week, we welcomed Carl Atherton, PE Educational Consultant, to the Sandpit for a GCSE Examination day. We welcomed students from other schools such as Marlborough and students enjoyed a day of revision and learning about exam techniques.

DRAMA NEWS

We were honoured to welcome the internationally renowned theatre company, Complicite, to The Sandpit Theatre this week. The theatre company decided to take on the challenge of completing the A Level Drama and Theatre devised examination to truly understand the process our A Level students go through in order to create an original piece of theatre. Though they are famed for creating innovative, unique pieces of drama, the challenge of taking on an A Level is quite different to their normal line of work. Our A Level Drama and Theatre students were joined by guests from Beaumont School and Parmiter's School who also had the opportunity to enjoy the two pieces of theatre. At the end, students offered fantastic questions during the Q&A with the company and discovered what it's like to create a Complicite style of theatre. 

"It was a really interesting insight into the way Complicite produce theatre. Both performances were inspirational and gave me a good idea of how I might create my own piece of theatre" - Olivia G 12F 

"They used everyday items to create a vast array of multi-purpose props. I thought it was impressive how they used these props to evoke a wide range of emotions and aid in the storytelling of the piece" - Kieran B 12A

We can't wait to see how our Year 12 students use what they've seen to inspire them on their journey to creating their own pieces of theatre in the new year.

STUDENT SPOTLIGHT 2

We would also like to wish Charles B in Year 10 good luck as he heads to the National Boxing Finals on the 30th October. Charles is with West Ham Boxing Academy and recently won the London Finals in the 66kg category by an almost unanimous 4-1 split. Speaking to Charles this week, he mentioned that he has been boxing since he was around 5 years old and now trains 6 times a week for around an hour and a half each time. If he wins the Nationals next week, he would be chosen to box for England against Wales and the next step after that is European Championships. It takes huge dedication to compete at such a high level whilst also juggling school work, so we are really impressed with all he has achieved so far and wish him every success at the next stages!

MFL NEWS

This week we would like to share this video to celebrate the achievements of two of our former students, Lottie and Chiara. They are currently doing an internship as language assistants in our link school, Palacio de Granda in the north of Spain. Lottie and Chiara have had an excellent start and are already valued members of the school community there. One of their main tasks is to have constant conversations in English (practice “oral expression”), as well as to get involved with students in various bilingual classes and projects (work on language immersion) like dance or music. In turn they become more proficient and expand their knowledge of the Spanish language and culture.

A significant number of our Spanish A Level students spend a year there before starting university. They all come back to tell us how life changing the experience has been for them and in turn inspire the next group of students to take on this challenge. In their own words, this experience gives them the opportunity to not only become fluent in Spanish, but also gain countless life skills by living and working in a foreign country. Lottie and Chiara love working with the children at the school and being able to help them with their English and other skills, as well as working with the staff in a Spanish speaking environment.

We are grateful to Palacio de Granda for providing such an enriching opportunity for our students and are very proud of them for being such great international ambassadors of our school community. You can view their video here. Amazing work Lottie and Chiara.

THEME WEEK: BREAST CANCER AWARENESS

This week’s whole school theme is Breast Cancer Awareness to align with Breast Cancer Awareness month. Every October, people all over the world show their support for everyone affected by breast cancer. It celebrates the work of charities that are focused on accelerating research and providing vital support for those affected.This year’s focus sees charities committing to showing everyone that no matter who you are, whatever your experience of breast cancer – there is always support available. The students received an excellent assembly from Dr Caroline Creaby which got them to reflect on the impact that breast cancer can have on our lives and the lives of others. It also increased awareness of the importance of self-screening so that any signs of illness are caught early to ensure treatment has the greatest chance of success. We encourage students to ‘wear it pink’ this half term break to show their support for those affected by breast cancer.

WHOLE SCHOOL SHOW NEWS

This week we feature two more insights into rehearsals for the Whole School Play, The Sound of Music. Don't forget, you can buy tickets here for this amazing event!

I genuinely enjoy participating in the whole school play and I always look forward to the rehearsals  because I enjoy performing, singing and dancing along with my friends. Also, during my time in rehearsals I met new people and made great friendships with everyone taking part in the show. I am glad that I have this amazing opportunity to take myself out of my comfort zone and develop new unique skills. Azima 

The whole school show is put on every year and is a great thing to be part of. The show has lots of dancing,singing and acting so there is something for everybody to enjoy. We rehearse twice a week and everybody is friendly so rehearsals are really enjoyable. It is also a great opportunity to make friends with people from other year groups, who you might not usually talk to. I now have friends in year 9 and 10 as well as the people in the other year groups who are really nice. Lauren

CHARITY NEWS

As you may have read in the Sandprint last week, the Hussain family had their first walk in memory of their beautiful son Ayaan on Sunday. The walk involved many students and parents from their daughter Sahar’s local primary school, Killigrew School, as well as several staff from Sandringham school. The weather was perfect, and the little walking legends were amazing all completing the 3mile walk without complaint! 

During the walk they took a break where the children and parents took part in Art and craft activities. They all had the chance to create super cute hedgehogs, dream catchers and do some leaf art. The day ended with the sun coming out while they all sat down to enjoy eating pizza, cakes , cookies and pastries - well deserved! Sahar had such an amazing day and couldn’t stop talking about it throughout the rest of the evening.

Their target for this walk was to raise £3,000, and they successfully reached their goal with the total still growing! They now look forward to the next walk on the 24th.Mrs Hussain would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who took part, donated and shared the details. To donate and learn more about the charities, please click here

HOCKEY NEWS

Year 9 This week, the Year 9 hockey team played in a superb, closely fought game V Dame Alice Owen. In an end to end match, both teams had goal scoring opportunities and were denied by excellent defence. The final score was 0-0 but the players were really united in their effort and in playing as a team and should be very proud of their performance which was almost their first win of the season. Well done!

Year 7 The Year 7 team played Sir John Lawes in an excellent match, winning 6-2. The whole squad improved as the game progressed, working well as a team and thinking about the space. The students had been working on their attacking and defensive short corners which they had worked on in training with Alice in Year 11 and it was great to see them put in to effect in the match. Very well done Year 7!!

Year 8  The Year 8’s also played against Sir John Lawes in another close match with lots of goals and open play in a thrilling 5-5 draw. It was wonderful to see so many students playing and enjoying the game with such confidence going forward in attack and great goal keeping. Their communication and decision making is improving every match along with their team work. A huge thanks go to Logan and Ronan in Year 13 for help with their coaching and umpiring this season.
