School Letters

Dear Parents and Carers, I would like to introduce myself to you as the Chief Executive Officer of the new St Ralph Sherwin Catholic Multi Academy Trust. From 1st September 2018 St Philip Howard will be joining together with 24 other Catholic primary and secondary schools from Nottinghamshire, Derbyshire, Derby City, Staffordshire and Stockport. This new Trust will provide wonderful opportunities for all the schools to work collaboratively, share what they do well as well as address the areas where they are not as successful.
Dear Member of Year 11, Please find below the timetable for revision sessions throughout the Easter Holidays. These sessions have been arranged to support yourself with your preparation for your GCSE exams. Please attend the extra sessions to help yourself with your revision.

As you will be aware, we had our first Ofsted Inspection, as an Academy on the 16th and 17th January 2018. We are now in a position to share the findings of the Inspection. St Philip Howard Catholic Voluntary Academy has been on a journey since being placed in to an Ofsted category – serious weakness in November 2014. We are delighted that Ofsted have now taken our school out of category and judged it to be Grade 3 – Requires Improvement.

I am pleased to announce that St Philip Howard Catholic Voluntary Academy has been successful in its bid for places at this summer’s Study Camp to China, organised and sponsored by UCL’s Institute of Education in London and Hanban (the Chinese Education authority). This is the first time St Philip Howard will embark on this once in a lifetime opportunity, but will be the 12th year that this event has taken place.

We have just told your child’s school that we will inspect it on 16 January 2018. The lead inspector will be Jayne Ashman, HMI. 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.

As you may be aware, since September 2017 all homework set has been visible to pupils on the school’s Virtual Learning Environment (http://sph.myvle.co.uk). However, homework has still been recorded in your child’s planner. All staff have been uploading homework to the VLE and your child has had the option to either complete the work in a written format or complete it electronically on the VLE.
