Due to the extensive building works on site the school is opening a little later than usual for the Autumn Term 2013. Pupils are coming back to school as follows:
Year 10 and 11 and ISU start back on Monday 9/9/13
Year 9 start back on Wednesday 11/9/13
Year 8 start back on Thursday 12/9/13
Year 7 start on Friday 13/9/13
All inductees will begin on Tuesday 10/9/13 which means all year 9 new starters will have a one day rotation/induction and year 8 new starters will have two days rotation/induction.
If there are any year 7 new starters between now and September they will also be inducted on Tuesday 10/9/13.
YEAR 11 PUPILS WHO WANT TO COLLECT THEIR EXAM RESULTS:
The school will be open on Thursday 22 August 2013 for Y11 exam results, between 10am and 12 noon. You can collect your results from Jo Ottley (Exams Officer) from Reception. Results will be issued in person only. If you do not come in to collect your results they will be posted 1st class to the address we hold on file.
For the rest of the school, we are really looking forward to seeing you back in September. Have a great summer and stay safe.

We were informed earlier today that we will be inspected over the next couple of days by Ofsted. Please find below the text from a letter that is required to be sent to all parents.
Dear parent or carer
Inspection of Lindsworth School by Ofsted
We have just told your child’s school that we will inspect it on 10–11 July 2013. The lead inspector will be Pauline Hilling-Smith. We are writing to you because we would like to know what you think about the school. Please take a few minutes to read the leaflet which came with this letter. It explains why we inspect schools, and what happens during an inspection.
Your views about the school are important to us
If you are a registered parent or carer of a pupil at the school (including pupils on sick leave or who are temporarily excluded), you can tell us your views about the school by completing Ofsted's online survey, Parent View, at: http://www.parentview.ofsted.gov.uk.
Parent View asks for your opinion on 12 aspects of your child’s school, including the progress made by your child, the quality of teaching, dealing with bullying and poor behaviour. The inspectors will use the online survey responses when inspecting your child’s school.
To register your views, you will need to provide your email address, which will be held securely. It will not be used for any purpose other than providing access to the online survey. Neither schools nor Ofsted will have access to any email addresses.
Please complete the online survey by 11am on 10 July 2013 as this will give the inspection team more time to consider your views. However, we will consider all online responses that are completed during the inspection. Should you wish to provide written comments these should be sent to the school in a sealed envelope, marked confidential and addressed to the inspection team.
Speaking to an inspector
If you are unable to complete the online survey, it may be possible to speak to an inspector during the inspection, for instance at the start of the school day, or to pass on messages to the inspectors if you are unable to speak to them in person. Inspection administrators will be happy to make the necessary arrangements. If concerns are raised about child protection, we may have to pass the information we receive to social services or the police. You can contact the administrators on 0121 679 9146. Inspectors will be pleased to receive your comments, but cannot deal with complaints about individual pupils or settle disputes between you and the school.
Thank you in advance for taking the time to complete the online survey.

Jake Harris is a Year 9 Lindsworth pupil who, working on his own initiative, put together this movie of the Barcelona trip using photos from an IPad .
It shows what great ICT skills Jake has and we can look forward to him producing more movies like this in the future. Well Done Jake, and thanks.
