Admissions Policy Consultation

 Uncategorized  Comments Off on Admissions Policy Consultation
Nov 172016
 

Since converting to an academy, the school is responsible for decisions that used to be taken by Nottinghamshire County Council.  As the school is a member of Equals Trust multi-academy trust, some of these decisions are taken collectively to the benefit of all pupils.

All the schools in Equals Trust have decided to review their Admissions policies, with any decisions implemented in time for applications from September 2018.  In order for any decision to be made, we need to consult with parents, carers and any other interested parties.

We have written draft Admissions policies for each school which explain the procedures for admissions to the schools, including the oversubscription criteria in order of priority.  We strongly believe that the criteria listed for each school will help allocate places in a fair, clear and objective way.

If you would like to read the draft Admissions policy for your school, you can download a copy by clicking here..  We welcome and invite you to send comments regarding the draft policy to enquiries@equalstrust.org. Alternatively, you may submit written comments to the school office in a sealed envelope, labelled ‘Admissions policy consultation’.

The consultation period will run from Monday, 21 November, 2016, until Monday 16 January, 2017.  After the consultation period is finished, a decision will be made whether to adopt the draft policy or not, and we will inform you of it in due course.

Admissions procedures for the school will still be managed on our behalf by Nottinghamshire County Council and parents will still apply for a school place through their website at www.nottinghamshire.gov.uk/schooladmissions.

Our year 5/6 athletics team competed last night in the finals of the Rushcliffe Indoor Athletics competition. The children performed as well as they did in the heats – which was brilliantly! The atmosphere was great and our team were fantastic ambassadors for RMJS. Once the results were in and counted we finished in a wonderful 3rd place. Well done to the whole team!

Here is the team looking smart:

Armistice Day

The pupils of Robert Miles Junior school walked the short distance onto the Market Place to join members of the Royal British Legion and the community of Bingham in today’s two minute silence to commemorate those members of the armed forces who have died during conflict.

Once again the children respected the two minutes silence wonderfully. Being out on the Market Place and standing in silence with service men and women was a powerful way for the children to think about the reasons why we remember this day.

Many thanks to Mr O’Brien who has supplied us with the photos of the event:

County Cup Football Result

The boys team played their second round County Cup game on Friday afternoon away at Parkdale Primary School. After a very competitive first half the boys were unlucky to be one goal down at half time. Parkdale added to their score soon after the break but Robert Miles fought back brilliantly to bring the game level 2-2 with great goals from Harry and Jacob. Both teams were then fighting for the victory but it was Parkdale who got the next goal to make it 3-2. They then tried to defend their lead and Robert Miles were once again pushing for an equaliser. Sadly it was not to be and Parkdale managed to get another 2 goals on the counter attack which meant the final score was 5-2 to the home side.

A great performance from the whole team in a close fought game. Well done boys!

We had a most enjoyable disco last night – with a Harry Potter theme (requested by Year 5!). As usual, Gazza’s Discos provided plenty of entertainment, competitions and prizes. We are already looking forward to the end of year one!

Duke’s Barn 2016

The week before the half term break once again saw Year 6 head off into Derbyshire to stay in Duke’s Barn – a fantastic base from which to explore the beautiful Derbyshire countryside. It is part of the Chatsworth Estate and employs very knowledgeable and experienced instructors. The children took part in many different outdoor activities – abseiling, caving, weaselling, canoeing, problem solving and nightwalking.

There were many challenges to be faced by the children and many personal moments of achievement, not least stepping out over the edge of Millers Dale Bridge and abseiling 90ft, 65ft of which they were dangling in mid air! For others it was the caves. The children donned full caving gear and headed off under the Derbyshire hills. For many this was a first trip underground and there were a few butterflies as the little door opened and the darkness beckoned! Good job the children had checked their batteries and head torches…

Other activities included the ever popular Weaseling (kind of outdoor caving) and canoeing down the Chesterfield Canal. When the weather picked up later in the week the second half of the group had the unforgettable experience of hiking in the darkness up to the moor overlooking the Barn and back down through the woods.

Residential trips like this not only give children the chance to experience new activities and conquer fears, they also help children learn the importance of team work. Many of the challenges could not be met without the children supporting and encouraging each other and learning to accept help when help is needed. It was great to hear at the end of the visit the leaders from Duke’s Barn comment on how great our children had been.
