Dear parents, carers and friends of Crosby High,

What a whirlwind of a start to a new academic year we are having! We certainly got off to a busy start with the Ofsted call on 10th September when pupils had only been in school for 4 days!! Two inspectors spent the day with us on 11th September. As a staff team we were really happy to welcome the inspectors into school as we had been waiting for this inspection for a year and a half and were fully ready to show them what a great school Crosby High is. As always your children were a credit to you; they showed wonderful manners, looked smart and more importantly were attentive learners in lessons and showed positive attitudes to learning. The student council played a very important part answering the inspectors questions and telling them all about our school. Thank you to all of you who responded to the questionnaire (which is confidential Ofsted) and also to the parents and carers who actually came into school to talk to the inspectors. The staff team were a credit to me and all of you too; everyone pulled together and supported each other to ensure the school presented at it’s best. Mr Dixon and myself observed staff teaching and pupils learning in four paired lesson observations with the inspectors and I can assure you we saw highly competent teachers teaching extremely well and enthusiastic learners doing their best too. The report takes some time to come but I will let you all know as soon as it does as we are looking forward to seeing what the inspectors thought.

Autumn 1 is a very charitable time for us at Crosby High. Teaching children about others and helping them learn about others lives is a key part of our curriculum. Education is not all about the academic but also the human element where of compassion and empathy are key skills. Thank you as always for your support with our charity events. We raised £110 for “Genes for Jeans” and today the school has been full of visitors for the “MacMillan Big Coffee Morning” so I am sure we have raised a great deal for that. Thank you to Mr Bellis, Mrs. Moore, Mr. Tolcher and all of Y11IB who organised and led this worthy event. Our next charity event is our harvest Festival where we collect for the Waterloo Foodbank. Key items that the food bank have requested are orange juice, UHT milk, jam and cereal but no beans!!! All donations however are gratefully received.

That’s all for now, Oxton-Grant over and out!
