  • IVC Signs Mental Health - Time to Change Pledge

    Published 14/05/18

    Impington Village College has today signed an employer pledge with Time to Change, the growing social movement run by charities Mind and Rethink Mental Illness which supports people to open up to mental health problems. By signing, we are committing to change the way we all think and act about mental health in the workplace.

    The signing ceremony took place on Monday 14th May and both the Principal, Mr Ryan Kelsall and Assistant Principal, Mr Simon Warburton pledged their support to Time to Change with an action plan of activity that will help to break the silence that surrounds mental health in the workplace.

    Principal, Mr Ryan Kelsall said:

    “We are delighted to sign this public pledge of commitment that staff and student well-being is fundamental to all that we seek to achieve at IVC.  Over the past two years we have made excellent progress on challenging the stigma surrounding mental health and well-being and we are delighted that this is having a real impact on the day to day experiences of all involved in IVC.”

    IVC joins the wide movement of over 450 organisations that have signed up to the Time to Change pledge, including E.ON, British Gas, Ernst & Young, Transport for London, Royal Mail, Barclays, Shell, Pepsico, the Church of England, Sunday Mirror, Marks and Spencer, and many NHS trusts, universities, and local authorities.

    Jo Loughran, Interim Director of Time to Change, said: “We know it can be hard to talk about mental health, which is why we’re supporting employers to open up; to talk and to listen. Too many people with mental health problems are made to feel isolated, ashamed and worthless, but with the right support, those of us with mental health problems can recover and have equal opportunities in all areas of life. Everyone’s attitude makes a difference and it’s fantastic to see organisations like Impington Village College taking the lead."

    “Many leading employers have found that making a strategic commitment to the mental wellbeing of their workforce not only benefits their staff but also their bottom-line, improving productivity and staff retention. With one in six British workers experiencing mental illness it's time for businesses to make a change and start creating more mentally healthy workplaces."

    Time to Change is funded by the Department of Health, Comic Relief and the Big Lottery Fund. Set up to create a positive shift in public attitudes towards mental health problems, Time to Change supports communities, schools and workplaces to open up to mental health problems; to talk and to listen.

    Impington Village College wins national awards for excellent results

    Impington Village College has been recognised nationally for its excellent results in 2017 based on data from the Department of Education and Ofsted, analysed by SSAT (the Schools, Students and Teachers network). Impington Village College was found to be among the best performing secondary schools in the country, receiving two awards for being in the top 10% of non-selective schools nationally for attainment and progress.

Impington Village College will be presented with their awards in the summer term at a ceremony attended by winners from across the region.

    Sue Williamson, Chief Executive of SSAT said:

    “I am delighted that Impington Village College has won two Educational Outcomes Awards. This recognises an important aspect of the schools’ work, but, as we know, there is much more to recognise in a good school like Impington Village College. SSAT is pleased to recognise the quality of leadership and the hard work of all staff to ensure the success of every child. A big thank you and well done to pupils, parents, staff and governors.”

  • Science faculty teams up with Tassomai Learning Programme

    Published 19/10/17

    This week the IVC Science department were excited to launch the use of a program called Tassomai with our Year 10 and 11 students.

    Tassomai has taken each Science syllabus and broken it down into quizzable micro-facts, covering everything students need to know for their exams. These quizzes are multiple-choice and can be used on any internet-enabled device.  The algorithm adapts to what the students already understand and what they don’t yet master. The program then prioritises topics based on where the students are struggling and gradually increases the demand of new content, whilst interspersing previously covered material to boost recall and retention, to ensure the best possible preparation for the summer exams.

    Research has found that targeted repetition, done little and often, is the most effective and efficient way to implant knowledge and prepare for exams, and this is exactly the method applied by Tassomai. According to Tassomai 95% of students who used Tassomai regularly achieved a C or higher in 2016 (and 56% got an A or A*).

    Additionally, Science teachers will be able to log in to Tassomai and analyse each individual student and class’s understanding. Teachers will then be able to target their intervention based on this information and focus on those topics which we know the students are struggling to grasp.

    Completing Tassomai quizzes has now replaced traditional Science homework at KS4 and students are expected to log on to Tassomai daily for around 10 minutes to complete their quizzes. Students can simply track their progress for course completion by using the performance wheel. By keeping the wheel green or blue, students can ensure that they will have covered the whole course before their exams in the summer of Year 11. The Science department is looking forward to seeing an improvement in knowledge recall in the weeks and months to come, as well as having students who are more confident in their knowledge.

  • Epraise Reward System Progress

    Published 19/10/17

    epraise

    One half term in and our students are really getting to grips with the new rewards system in school.  Merits are issued for a range of reasons including rewarding the quality of work, contributing the college community and making great progress in a lesson.

    So far over 30 000 merits have been issued averaging at approximately 23 per student and a quick look at the student leaderboard will tell you that some students are well above the average score for merits this term.

    We have lauched the Prize draws this week with students, after meeting specific criteria regarding attendance, merits and behaviour points, in the pot for a £20 Amazon voucher.  Students can of course "cash in" their merits for a range of rewards in our epraise shop such as early entry into the dining hall, chocolate bar or gym/swim session (to counter the chocolate) or even shoping vouchers at the Grafton Centre.

    Please support our rewards system by discussing your child's progress and by logging into the site as a parent to review their awarded points.
