Science

Mathematics

Science fires pupils’ curiosity about phenomena in the world around them and offers opportunities to find

explanations. At Smithdon High School science begins with a variety of short courses. These courses are

developed in-house and aim to deliver the National Curriculum in the context of everyday life.

The course includes all three science disciplines - biology, chemistry and physics - and provides the pupils with

opportunities to carry out practical activities and educational visits. Science is now a skill based subject and pupils

are aided in developing, modelling, expressing opinions and debating as well as experimental writing skills.

Pupils learn how knowledge and understanding in science are rooted in evidence. They discover how scientific

ideas contribute to technological change - affecting industry, business and medicine, and improving quality of life.

They trace the development of science worldwide and recognise its cultural significance. They learn to question and

discuss issues that may affect their own lives, the directions of societies and the future of the world.

At Smithdon High School we have a team of dedicated teachers as well as great facilities and resources to inspire

pupils in their science studies.

2

Mathematics is the key to all those professions which demand knowledge of the exact sciences. It teaches

abstract thought in an accurate and orderly way.

Mathematics is not only the perfect subject for reflecting intellectual abilities, but also a tool for solving vital,

everyday problems. At Smithdon High School we cater for the whole spectrum of abilities, from those pupils who

wish to be consultants in high powered companies where mathematics is used to maximise profit making, to those

who will need to manage their own finances in an ever more demanding world.

We have produced pupils who have revelled in abstract ideas and have risen to the challenges presented by higher

level university courses. Functional mathematics to Pythagoras’ Theorem and beyond are all catered for by our

department as we explore number, algebra, shape and space as well as statistics.

The department’s position in the centre of the school, housed in a dedicated refurbished mathematics block with the

latest interactive whiteboard technology, excellent range of software, integrated ICT suite and laptops, make this an

exemplary department.

“Our form tutors support and encourage us to do well.” - Year 9 student


English

English language, both written and spoken, means confidence in life. English is the medium by which nearly all of

us lead our lives. At Smithdon High School we therefore believe it is vital that every student secures the basic skills

which will enable them to both understand and engage in the world around them.

These skills are developed through a structured programme of study which is supported and enhanced by

reading. As all educational research shows, reading for pleasure is a vital part of your child’s development and we

ask parents to support our efforts to encourage this. As students progress, we strive to develop their fluency and

analytical skills as well as an understanding and enjoyment of our literary heritage. These skills will equip them for

higher education and employment, where the ability to communicate well is essential.

Enrichment activities include visits to a number of venues such as The Globe Theatre and visits to the school by

well known authors, as well as a number of school based, extra-curricular opportunities. The department’s excellent

facilities housed in a purpose built and attractive teaching base close to the school’s outstanding library and ICT

facilities all play a significant role in supporting the development of pupils’ knowledge and skills.

“I’ve settled in well. Smithdon is big but not scary at all.” - Year 7 student

Modern Foreign Languages

Modern Foreign Languages have practical communication at the core of their learning philosophy.

Endless lists of vocabulary are of little use if pupils do not possess the skills to use these words in everyday

situations. Communication is key and making the occasional mistake is all part of the process. We equip our

students with the skills to take their language studies out of the classroom and into the world, whether it is for the

purpose of work, pleasure or further study.

Modern Foreign Languages will play a key role in the new, knowledge-based economy of the future. In addition to

the considerable economic advantages gained by a workforce competent in a foreign language, the social benefits

should also be recognised. It is most important to show people in other countries the courtesy of speaking to them

in their own language.

People who can speak another language, or at least have a good working knowledge, can hope to be more

successful in gaining employment and command higher salaries within their organisations. Languages expand the

mind, but shrink the world.

History

Geography

History fires pupils’ imagination, inspiring them with the dilemmas, choices and beliefs of people in the past. It

helps pupils develop their own identities through an understanding of history at personal, local, national and

international levels. It helps them to ask and answer questions of the present by engaging with the past.

They develop a chronological overview that enables them to make connections across different periods and

societies. They investigate Britain’s relationships with the wider world, and relate past events to the present day.

As they develop their understanding of the nature of historical study, pupils ask and answer important questions,

evaluate evidence, identify and analyse different interpretations of the past, and learn to substantiate any

arguments and judgements they make.

History prepares pupils for the future, equipping them with vital knowledge and skills, enhancing employability and

developing an ability to take part in a democratic society. We strongly believe that students at Smithdon High School

are enthused by their study of history and that a love of the subject becomes a feature of their lifelong learning.

4

Geography stimulates interest and a sense of wonder, helping young people to make sense of a complex and

dynamically changing world. This subject explains where places are, how landscapes are formed, how people and

their environment interact and how a diverse range of economies, societies and environments are interconnected.

Pupils build on their own experiences to investigate locations on all scales, from the personal to the global.

Geographical enquiry encourages questioning, investigation and critical thinking relating to issues affecting the

world and people’s lives, both now and in the future. Fieldwork is an essential element of geography studies and at

Smithdon we are fortunate to have such interesting coastline right on our doorstep to enhance our students’

education and understanding of the subject.

Pupils learn to think spatially and use maps, visual images and new technologies including geographical information

systems (GIS) to obtain, present and analyse information.

Geography inspires pupils to become global citizens by exploring their own part of the world, as well as their values

and responsibilities in relation to other people, the environment and the sustainability of the planet.

“The field trips are really good fun.” - Year 11 student


ICT

Information Communication Technology plays an ever increasing role in today’s society, from the

mobile phone to presentations given by companies in the form of advertisements and government policies.

With the understanding acquired in ICT, students are aware of the unseen pressures used and learn how to apply

persuasive techniques to help them compete in the world of business and commerce. Alongside these skills

students develop others, including the use of spreadsheet and database in accommodation that creates a

businesslike environment and inspires students to achieve to their highest potential.

The school has developed an ICT network throughout the school which is unparalleled in terms of pupil access.

This technology has had a profound and growing impact on pupils’ success in this subject. In addition ICT lies at the

centre of pupils’ learning across the curriculum providing opportunities to transfer ICT skills into different areas and

further develop computing confidence.

“It’s great we get to use the computer rooms in all subjects.” - Year 9 student

Design and Technology

Design and Technology is based in excellent, purpose-built accommodation with a suite of five classrooms,

each allocated to a specialist subject. The department has over forty computers, thirty of which are in a dedicated

computer suite. With seven CAM machines and four computer projectors, we can offer a high technology input for

students. The computer suite includes a range of subject specific software programmes to suit the needs of

students from Year 7 to Year 13, so we are well placed for the future demands of the curriculum.

The department has a team of dedicated and creative staff, with excellent technical support, who also offer students

clubs and activities both at lunchtime and after school.

We currently offer a wide range of GCSE level courses in which students experience success. We are also

delighted to offer courses to A level.

The enviable facilities and reputation of the department have set a standard which the technology team are

determined to enhance still further.

5


Drama

Music

Drama in Key Stage 3 includes thematic investigations incorporating dramatic strategies such as body language,

still image, hot seating and improvisation. These studies are multimedia based, using music and video, CD Rom,

etc. A selection of themes such as ‘Titanic’, ‘The Haunted House’, ‘War of the Worlds’, ‘Oregon Trail’ and ‘Forbidden

Planet’ are studied.

These areas of study allow students to develop their skills while enjoying and using dramatic strategies. A linked

system of assessment is used to feed into GCSE and a clear system of tracking progress has been developed for

both Key Stages 3 and 4. A clear structure of praise and reward is applied to great effect, as well as encouraging a

positive atmosphere within lessons.

A very important part of the department’s work has been the development of excellent productions. A tradition of

large musicals performed in the school is now established and recent performances of ‘Jesus Christ Superstar’ and

‘We Will Rock You’ received much acclaim. We are very proud that the department strives for excellence and this is

reflected in the standard of performance seen in both the extra-curricular and lesson based activities.

6

Music contributes to the development of pupils and to the school curriculum by providing a powerful and

distinctive form of communication and expression.

Music changes the way children feel, think and act. The teaching of music extends everyday experiences,

providing opportunities and links between home, school and outside agencies.

Within the department we work closely with a team of dedicated peripatetic instrumental teachers to offer the

opportunity for students to learn specific musical instruments (piano, strings, brass, woodwind, guitar, drums and

vocal) through the school. These lessons contribute to the extra-curricular activities offered to all pupils at lunch

times and after school.

Over the last few years the department has forged good community links with local organisations and is lucky to

secure funding from the Hunstanton and District Festival of Arts for a variety of events. The department continues

to build up an outstanding reputation in the area through its contribution to musical productions, concerts and

performance in the community.

“Citizenship days are fun and teach us about important issues.” - Year 8 student


Art

Art and design encourages, through direct personal expression, imagination, sensitivity, conceptual thinking,

powers of observation, analytical abilities and practical attitudes. It uniquely addresses those complex mental

processes involving visual perception and aesthetic experience.

Art is one of those subjects concerned with visual communication, aesthetic sensibility, sensory perception,

emotional and intellectual development, physical competence and critical judgement.

Its particular contribution is concerned with developing imagination and creativity; observation and the recording of

visual images, and through this, the expression of ideas and feelings; the interpretation of visual images; the

transformation of materials into images and objects; the skills of planning and visualisation; the intuitive, as well as

the logical processes of designing; and the study of the work by artists, craftworkers and designers.

The department has excellent resources to encourage students to reach their full creative potential. These include

two kilns, a pottery wheel, a printing press and a computer suite equipped with Photoshop, as well as access to a

photography suite with a dark room for traditional black and white photography.

“Art is my favourite subject. It’s much more than just painting.” - Year 10 student

Religious Education

Religious Education places special emphasis on students valuing themselves and others. This is achieved

through studying the role of the family and the community in religious belief and practice. The diversity within

society is celebrated through understanding similarities and differences, combating prejudice and negative

discrimination, as well as the need for human stewardship of the earth.

Religious Education also recognises the changing nature of society, including changes in religious practice and

expression and the influence of religion in the local and national community. Students are given the opportunity to

develop their sense of identity and thus make a positive contribution to their local, national and international

community.

Students view this subject very positively as a result of the carefully organised curriculum, high quality subject

delivery and high levels of success attained by pupils across the ability spectrum in public examinations.

Well-being

Physical Education

Well-being lies at the centre of Smithdon High School’s philosophy and we work hard to achieve positive

outcomes. Our work starts before the pupils arrive, with staff going out to visit pupils in their primary schools, having

induction days and using older students in Year 7 form groups.

Looking after the well-being of students continues with each year group having a specifically designated head of

year who stays with their group of pupils until the end of Year 11. The form tutor also stays with their form group.

Smithdon High School believes that the well-being of students depends on their fitness and health as well as a

feeling of belonging and security.

The food we provide at breaks and lunch times is of high quality and reasonably priced. The PE department

ensures that the pupils have access to a varied and appropriate sports curriculum throughout their time at school,

and this is further supplemented by extra-curricular opportunities. We take all issues relating to general health

seriously, such as alcohol abuse, drugs, smoking and sexual health. Guidance is made explicit in science, RE and

during citizenship events. Our links with health professionals make our delivery relevant and interesting.

8

Physical Education develops pupils’ competence and confidence to take part in a range of physical activities

which become a central part of their lives, both in and out of school.

Our curriculum at Smithdon High School enables pupils to enjoy and succeed in many kinds of physical activity.

Pupils develop a wide range of skills, the ability to use tactics, strategies and compositional ideas to perform

successfully. When pupils are engaged in an activity, they learn to analyse the situation and make decisions. They

also reflect on their performance, as well as the performances of others, and find ways to improve. As a result they

develop the confidence to participate in different physical activities and learn the value of healthy, active lifestyles.

PE helps pupils to develop both personally and socially. They work as individuals and in groups or teams, developing

a sense of fairness as well as personal and social responsibility. Pupils take on various roles and responsibilities,

including leadership, coaching and officiating.

The PE department benefits from outstanding facilities, which include sports hall, gym, extensive sports field and an

indoor, heated swimming pool.

“Our sports facilities are great. Especially the gym and pool.” - Year 8 student


Sixth Form

It is self evident that in today’s world education must continue beyond sixteen. Smithdon High School facilitates

this idea with a dynamic sixth form catering for a wide range of abilities through a diverse array of Level 2 (GCSE

equivalent) and Level 3 (A Level equivalent) courses.

Sixth form students are encouraged to enrich their experiences through a wide range of extra-curricular activities.

Charity events, school productions, peer counselling, student mentoring, the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award scheme,

Young Enterprise, events management, university visits, sporting events and the ‘Extended Project’ are just some of

the activities on offer.

Students receive expert guidance on subject choice during Year 11 to ensure their course matches their goals, and

during Year 12 they are entered for AS units. Post-18 planning begins towards the end of Year 12, as decisions

about Year 13 and beyond also need careful consideration.

Special Educational Needs

Special educational needs may affect students either throughout or at some time during their school life.

The majority of needs are met within the mainstream curriculum, but some students will require additional help. The

learning support department aims to ensure that all students with special educational needs are offered full and

equal access to a broad, balanced and relevant education.

They are also encouraged to participate fully in all school activities. In line with our code of practice, the department

offers a variety of support systems to meet students’ needs. The learning support department works closely with

students and their parents and with outside support and health services, as well as other professionals in order to

respond to such needs.

Many pupils are supported in class by a team of learning support assistants. No student receives SEN support

unless prior discussion with parents has taken place and the headteacher and all teaching staff are kept fully

informed of all students receiving support.

School dinners are healthy but tasty with lots of choice.” - Year 9 student

Disability Provision

Disability provision at Smithdon High School is something we take extremely seriously, as we are committed

to offering equal opportunities to all of the children in our care. We have an active disability equality scheme and

access plan which have been developed from departmental improvement planning and consultation with staff,

parents and students.

This enables us to address the needs of our current community users as well as anticipating future requirements. All

students have access to the activities conducted in school and reasonable adjustments are made for students with

disabilities engaging in school trips.

If, as a prospective parent of a child with a disability, you have any concerns about the school’s provision for your

child’s needs, please contact the school in the strictest confidence. In all cases we will do our best to plan for your

child’s individual support requirements ensuring that their transition to Smithdon High School is as smooth as

possible.

School Productions

Smithdon High School is fortunate to have thriving music and drama departments which are both deeply

committed to providing students with an opportunity to perform. This philosophy results in students actively

performing and evaluating performance in their lessons.

However, both departments believe that students should have the opportunity to perform in front of wider

audiences. This takes place in concerts and school events throughout the year. The culmination of this exciting and

popular work is the annual school production.

The production involves in excess of one hundred pupils and staff with a sequence of performances normally

taking place in March. To date these productions have included ‘Discorella’, ‘The Little Shops of Horrors’, ‘We Will

Rock You’, ‘Jesus Christ Superstar’ and ‘The Wizard of Oz’.

Each production sees another leap in complexity, success and pupil involvement together with critical acclaim from

our audiences.

School productions are better than the West End or Broadway!” - Year 9 student

School Events

School events at Smithdon High School are aimed at providing our students with the best possible

opportunities to achieve curricular and examination success. However, we fully embrace the philosophy that our

school must be more than simply ‘preparing for examinations’.

We try to provide our pupils with opportunities during the school day and beyond to have broader educational

experiences. School events designed to achieve these objectives include charity days/weeks, theatre and art

gallery visits, trips abroad, visiting speakers, enterprise days, reward trips, curriculum enhancement, a thorough and

full immersion in the world of work, musical workshops, sporting events and participation in team success, Young

Enterprise and various other competitions.

We are constantly delighted by the manner in which our pupils respond to these opportunities, representing the

school in a polite and mature manner, working with staff to make the events successful and responding positively to

the events organised.

11


Extra-curricular

Extra-curricular activities are made available

to all our students and are varied, rewarding and

fun. Everyone is encouraged to participate, as we

believe sharing experiences plays an important

role in a child’s development.

Our diverse programme of opportunities outside

the classroom encourage life-skills and stimulate

self-discovery, risk-taking and adventure.

There is an enormous variety of clubs and

societies to choose from at Smithdon High School

including the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award, Young

Enterprise, numerous sporting opportunities and

many more.

“There are lots of clubs to get invovled with at lunchtime.” - Year 8 student

12


School Council

The School Council meets once a month and is is made up of student representatives from every year in the

school, to ensure the needs and concerns of all our age groups are heard equally.

The students chair the meetings themselves, with staff and governors overseeing their discussions to assist with

any queries the pupils may have regarding the topics that are important to them.

Since its inception, the school council has affected many important decisions within school, such as the school

uniform, the new school badge, the school’s recycling policy, an anti-smoking campaign and assisting in raising

funds for charities both locally and nationally, to name just a few. In addition, Hunstanton Town Council has recently

approached the school council, asking them to act as the youth council for the town of Hunstanton - a role the

students have been very keen to take on with their usual energy and maturity.

School councillors are elected by their peers and report back to their fellow students, ensuring that everyone at

Smithdon High School has a voice.

“I’m proud to be on the school council and to have my ideas heard.” - Year 10 student

Parent Partnership

Parent partnership creates a vital link between the school and its parents. The school is working hard to

establish close ties with parents and we strongly believe that the quality of co-operation between home and school

has a significant effect on a student’s performance and standards of achievement.

Good communication is essential if the partnership is to work successfully and we are committed to strengthening

this relationship through a number of channels:

• Newsletters issued two or three times a term.

• The student planner, which parents are asked to sign weekly.

• Progress reviews and annual written reports to parents.

• Parent partnership evenings.

• Curriculum evenings.

• The school’s website.

• Parents’ Handbook.

13


Governors

The school’s governors form a dedicated team with a strategic role in setting aims and objectives, agreeing

targets, budgets, policies and priorities and monitoring effectiveness. It also evaluates the school’s performance

through results and data, outside agency reports and the School Development Plan. Governors also compile their

own development plan and review this annually.

The range of skills, experience and expertise among the governors is considerable and this enables the governing

body to support the school across many areas and in various ways. For example, professional expertise supports

subject areas, educational visits, pastoral issues, premises inspection and building projects. Each governor is linked

to a subject department, a management team or year group.

Governors attend all major school events and form an important link between parents and staff if third party contact

is needed, and they can always be reached through the school or on parents’ evenings.

The governors are an enthusiastic and dedicated group who enjoy the school’s successes and progress. However,

they take the role of ‘critical friend’ very seriously and challenge the school’s senior leadership team on issues of

performance and effectiveness.

The current chairman of governors is Mark Little, who has two children at Smithdon. Should you wish to contact

Mark regarding any aspect of governance or with any concerns, please do so via the school email address -

office@smithdon.norfolk.sch.uk - marking your email ‘FAO Mark Little’, and he will contact you as quickly as

possible.

For further information, or if you are interested in becoming a governor in the future, please contact the Clerk to the

Governors through the school.

Governor Leadership Team

• Chairman Mr M Little

• Vice chair Miss J Elsley

• Vice chair Mr H Griffiths

A full list of governors can be found on the school website.

“We have improved our school by introducing recycling.” - Year 8 student


Rewards

Rewards are vital in reaffirming to our students that we recognise and are proud of their achievements. At

Smithdon High School we believe that students’ successes should be praised and celebrated, and we have several

ways of recognising achievement, effort, progress and perseverance.

We try to encourage students to do well by rewarding those who make good progress. Merits are awarded to Years

7, 8 & 9 with Personal Achievement Records for Years 10 and 11, together with congratulatory postcards.

End of term reward trips are also held for students whose behaviour and attendance have been very good. In

addition, excellent attendance is celebrated.

We would wish to be informed of any achievements out of school so that we can celebrate these. We celebrate

student achievement in weekly and end of term assemblies. We have a series of very special days in July when

parents are invited to join with us to celebrate the students’ many successes.

We have recently introduced the High Fliers Club and the High Five Club, rewarding students who are not only

achieving high levels of attainment, but also those students who are performing above their target grades.

In addition the school has recently implemented a School Ambassador scheme, where Year 11 students apply to

be ambassadors for the school and are interviewed by senior members of staff and school governors before being

selected for the role. As well as representing their peers, these students also attend school functions and are given

extra responsiblitites to reward their mature approach to school life.

Our rewards schemes include:

• SIM points

• PARs

• Reward trips

High fliers club

High five club

• Attendance rewards

School ambassadors

“I have my silver certificate for merits and I’m working for my gold.” - Year 7 student

School structure

Smithdon High School’s senior leadership team is responsible for the overall leadership of the school on

a daily, weekly and yearly basis. They work with heads of department and heads of year to manage the learning

programmes in school, in order to meet the school’s mission statement.

Pastoral care is key to the happiness and well-being of our students. With that in mind, Smithdon High School

ensures, as best it can, that both form tutors and heads of year stay with the same group of children throughout

their school life. This allows the students to build a close bond with the staff in those two key roles, giving

consistency and understanding in our pastoral care of all the children.

The progress of each student is monitored by the form tutors and the heads of year. Form tutors are responsible

for establishing a happy, secure and supportive relationship with their tutor group and should be the first point of

contact for parents.

School uniform

Smithdon High School students wear their uniform with pride. The uniform was designed in consultation with both

students and parents, and helps pupils identify with the school and assists in creating a sense of community.

The importance of pupils presenting themselves to a high standard cannot be overemphasised. Parents will

appreciate that the public make judgements about a school on the basis of how the pupils look and behave while

wearing school uniform. We greatly appreciate your cooperation in the maintenance of good uniform standards and

behaviour.
