They’re supposedly the best days of your life, but

few of us would honestly want to relive them.

They are the years in which we have our fi rst

crushes and our fi rst heartbreaks, when the

world begins to open up around us even whilst

our attention is narrowing on exams and academic

success (or not). They are supposed to be carefree

compared with the world of work that is to come, and yet

we know that the mental health of teenagers is just as

fragile, if not more so, than that of adults. In the entirety

of a life our school years are really not that many, and

yet they seem last for ever.

I did my GCSEs 30 years ago this summer and left

school in 1991. I recently was included in a Facebook

school reunion page, and it was so strange to see

photos of people that I hadn’t seen since the late 1980s

now looking so middle aged and yet so familiar. More sobering was

the discovery of the small number who had died since then. Equally

odd is to see my own boys go through secondary school and, in the

case of the history GCSE, studying the same subjects. Not having had

a particularly enjoyable time at school, to walk back into a secondary

school so many years later still raised all sorts of unpleasant emotions

inside of me. Perhaps you have had a similar experience. After all, I

suspect that very few of us really enjoyed our teenage years, even if

nostalgia has varnished our memories.

And if our memories of our years in education seem so mixed now,

then what is it like for the present teenagers negotiating the same

issues as us as well as contending with social media, cyber-bullying and

lifetime of debt if they are to choose to go to university? And to those

who are feeling the pressure, I would offer these words of experience:

Firstly, you don’t defi ne the rest of your life by the age of 18. You don’t

have to have your career sorted by the time that you leave university.

Don’t let anyone pressure you into thinking that the mistakes that you

might make now will be life-defi ning. They almost certainly won’t.

Secondly, growing up takes a lot longer than people used to think.

Legally you’re an adult at 18, emotionally I’d add another ten years on to

that. You don’t have to have it all sussed by the time you leave school.

And thirdly, in Jesus God knew what it was like to be a teenager,

suffering from the same hormonal changes that all of us have been

through. I know that in my less-than-happy school moments

the knowledge that God was with me and understood me

even when I didn’t think anyone else did was a life-saver.

The start of a new school year can be tough for pupils

and teachers alike. I pray that you will know God’s grace

in the classroom in the year ahead.

Helping our Children t

To fit in with our theme of Education and

Learning, we invited headteachers from

around the Woodseats and Beauchief

area to tell us a little about their school

and their plans for the coming year. Here

are a few who took up our offer..


Woodseats Primary School is a

large school but we think of

ourselves as one big family.

We are passionate about our

community and celebrate all

of the differences we have

and work hard to ensure

everyone is included.

Our aim is that our

children become

successful learners,

confident individuals

and responsible

citizens and our evolving

curriculum will enable this.

We want our children to appreciate

and understand diversity in their own

community and beyond so that they can

learn to live harmoniously in a diverse


At Woodseats Primary School, we

believe that learners achieve their best

when their education successfully adapts

to their individual needs, teaching the

whole child and we make it relevant to our

local community and the needs of society


This year we plan on making it our best

yet; lots of exciting learning taking place

in and out of our classrooms. Our aim

above everything else is that children are

excited about their learning, enjoy coming

to school and feel safe and happy so that

they can thrive whilst they are in our care

and achieve all that they possibly can.

Mrs Sinead Fox, Headteacher


From day one my guiding principle

has been that every student at

Meadowhead should be given the

standard of education and treated

with the respect, care and empathy

I would want for my own


We have introduced

a number of

changes this year

to strengthen the

standard of education

the school provides.

Improvements in

teaching and learning have

been at the core of the significant changes

introduced this year.

The introduction of non-negotiables for

teachers and learners have brought about

big improvements in the classroom. This

is leading to better progress and a more

consistent learning experience for students.

The school recognises that GCSE

success is dependent on good literacy skills

and with this in mind, we have introduced

a daily reading session for all Year 7 to 9

students. Children at Meadowhead are

now reading regularly and teachers have

been effective in reviving their interest in

literature and books.

As we move forward, parent and student

feedback will continue to inform and shape

the school’s policies and practices. We

look forward to rolling out a new curriculum

next year for Key Stage 3 which aims to

inspire students to enjoy and embrace

learning, creating a stronger foundation for

GCSE studies in Years 10 and 11.

You’re welcome to come along to our

Open Evening for prospective parents of

Y7 on Thursday October 3 from 6-8pm.

to Learn


At Mercia School, we offer an

education that is traditional

and academically rigorous. We

believe in providing a structured

and disciplined working

environment in which all

pupils excel.

We provide pupils

with a core body of

knowledge, upon

which they can

refl ect critically and

creatively about a

broad range of issues.

Our pioneering curriculum

is designed to stretch and challenge pupils

to reach their goals. The Mercia curriculum

pays particular attention to the English

Baccalaureate suite of subjects as well as

sport, music and art. At GCSE and A-Level

we will offer a balanced academic pathway.

Our school motto Scientia Unescamus

means ‘Let us be United by Knowledge’.

We expect all our pupils to approach

everything they do with this in mind and

we pride ourselves on our commitment

to academia. Our strong ethos ensures

that we are ‘united’, creating a positive

atmosphere of support and success.

We have high expectations of everyone,

and we take discipline very seriously. We

expect our pupils to behave impeccably

and to show politeness and compassion

at all times. In turn, our pupils benefi t from

exceptional teaching, fi rst class pastoral

support and a culture of mutual respect.

Please come along to one of our Open

Events for more information:

In the very beginning, it may

seem that a baby does

nothing but eat, sleep, cry,

and fill its nappy. But the

baby is learning too. It can

see and hear what is happening

around it and can communicate

its needs and interests to others.

Parents help their babies learn by

playing with them.

Babies have the ability to see

faces and objects of different

shapes, sizes, and colours. They

can tell the difference between

the voices of their parents and

others. We’re surprised when they

mould their bodies into our arms

or shoulders. We marvel at how

they came into the world able to

suck, communicate certain needs

by crying and, at times, calm down

on their own.

Most infants can do all of these

things as soon as they are born. In

fact, research shows that babies

start learning in the womb.

A helpless new born baby!

We all love them, don’t we? A

relatively blank page which will

change dramatically in the first

year in particular.

From being this helpless

newborn to becoming an active

toddler, an incredible change

takes place in a very short time.

During the first few months the

baby’s brain and body are learning

to live in the outside


How wonderful is

that first time your baby

smiles at you?

He starts to lift

his head, to use

his hands.


he tries to

manipulate the

world around

him, reaching out and using those

hands more and more.

He starts to chatter and to laugh.

He has changed from rolling

around to now being able to sit up

(with a little help).

He may start to crawl and he

can soon sit unaided.

He loves simple games like

peek-a-boo, he loves singing and

chatters non-stop.

Soon he may be standing up

at the furniture and moving quite

speedily (this is when you need

eyes in the back of your head!).

By the time he reaches his first

birthday he may well be walking,

he has started to feed himself,

he can say a few understandable

words and, without a doubt, he

knows what he wants!

So, in 12 short months this

helpless little bundle has

transformed into an increasingly

independent little person.

During my 31 years as a

childminder I was privileged

to witness this transformation

many times and boy, what a

transformation it always was!

As a childminder, it was a

privilege to help individual babies

to develop, building on the time

they spent with their parents. By

communicating with parents, I was

able to recognise that individual

babies differ in their needs.

Some cry more or are

louder than others. Some

prefer more activity and

others less.

When I meet those

children now, many in

their 20s, I feel proud to

know that I helped them to

learn and develop

when they were

in my care.

Teaching Through Parables

We all love a good

story; there is

almost an inbuilt

attraction which

draws us to both

telling them and listening to

them. Stories create magic and

a sense of wonder at the world.

Stories teach us about life, about

ourselves and about others.

When trying to teach a new idea

or get someone to consider things

from a different perspective,

the help of a story never goes

amiss. Throughout history, they

have been used to communicate

important information or familial


In the Bible there are many

examples of storytelling for the

purpose of teaching, encouraging

and even telling people off (often

without them realising). In fact

one of the greatest storytellers

was Jesus. He used parables

to answer questions, to explain

difficult ideas and to open

people’s eyes to the heights and

depth of God’s love.

In Luke chapter 15, Jesus

tells three parables, one

after the other, about

things or people who

are lost: the Lost

Sheep, the Lost

Coin and

the Lost

Son (most


known as the

Prodigal Son).

In each

story, Jesus

illustrates to

his audience

just how

important and

precious every

single person

is to him (even the tax collectors

and sinners gathering round),

each time showing a little more

of God’s character as ardent,

merciful, forgiving and most

importantly full of overwhelming

and generous with love which is in

stark contrast to the judgemental

mutterings of the Pharisees and

teachers who are watching on.

One parable that has even

made it into common vernacular

is the parable of the Good

Samaritan (Luke 10: 25-37) which

Jesus told to answer the question

“who is my neighbour?”.

Rather than just directing

people and telling them the ‘right’

answers, Jesus’ use of parables

encouraged his audience, then

The first time that I made

flapjack was a disaster. I

put what I thought were

the right ingredients into

a pan, spooned it into a

tray and left it on the side until my

friend came round. When it came

to eating the flapjack it was raw.

My friend asked me how long

I’d baked it for – I hadn’t put it in

the oven. She started laughing

and asked: “Didn’t you follow the

recipe?” I hadn’t even looked at a

recipe. She rolled about laughing.

And that was a life lesson I

learned the hard way – recipes

are there for a very good reason!

Twenty-plus years later and I’m in

my kitchen making flapjack and

following the recipe religiously.

For those of us who work in

learning and development we

often refer to this as learning

through experience. There are

other ways in which we learn,

through reading, watching

others and, importantly, through

reflecting on what we’ve read,

seen or done and then planning

our next steps. The ways in which

we learn, particularly when and

who we learn from, have changed

dramatically in recent years. We

tend to search on Google, look

on YouTube or search LinkedIn or

Twitter articles.

Training departments which

have kept pace with this

change now focus on taking

a 70:20:10 approach to how

they provide learning and

development opportunities in their

organisations. This approach

acknowledges that 70 per cent

of the learning we do is ‘on the

job’ or through experience; 20 per

cent is through talking with others,

such as mentoring and coaching

conversations and being part of

groups or forums; and ten per

cent from formal training courses

or instruction.

For those of us who have grown

up with the opportunity to go

on in-house or external training

courses as a way of developing

our skills and careers this change

can feel as though companies

are dis-investing in their people’s

development. In some cases

this may be true. However, even

where this is the case, I would

argue that access to learning and

development has never been

greater or easier – it just requires

us all to take control, pick up our

phones, open our laptops or even

visit the local library. A quick chat

with someone on the bus always

reveals something new too!

There is still a case for faceto-face

learning in order to

learn a skill or test a skill out

and so training departments will

continue to exist. In my mind

the main challenge that all this

access and opportunity brings is

the opportunity to reflect on our

learning. We might not like the

experience of being laughed at

by a friend, but in my experience

having a friend ask some key

questions certainly helps the

learning to stick.

core aspect of

Christianity is learning.

Jesus’ first followers

were called disciples,

and the term ‘disciple’ is

not just reserved for those initial

followers, but Christians today

are still disciples of Jesus. The

meaning of the word ‘disciple’

contains the idea of not just

following, but also learning,

almost like being an apprentice

of Jesus. So, St Chad’s, like all

churches, should have an aspect

of learning within its life.

To start with the obvious, St

Chad’s has plenty of opportunities

to learn about the Christian faith

on Sundays. There are children

and youth groups which help

young people to learn, but there

are also sermons (a talk or

address). Sermons, a key part of

a church service, are not solely

about learning, but that is a part of

them. Sermons help to explain the

Bible, who God is, who we are,

and what life is really about: they

paint the picture of God’s story

and perspective on the world.

The words of written prayers

(sometimes called liturgy) help us

to learn about these things too.

But on Sundays at St Chad’s

people also learn by doing,

for example, through the

physical action of receiving Holy

Communion. As we partake in

Holy Communion something

about all that

Jesus has done

and will do is


to us in a special

and particular


Outside of

Sunday services,

there are plenty

of other areas where St Chad’s

is involved with learning about

the Christian faith, which include

weekly small groups as well as

engagement with schools and

pre-schools (for example, through

assemblies, seasonal services,

and Open the Book). We have

occasional evening courses too,

this year has included Alpha

(an opportunity to explore the

Christian faith) and the Bible

Course, which aimed to cover a

sweep of the whole big story of

the Bible.

Apart from learning about the

Christian faith, St Chad’s is also

involved with other aspects of

learning, whether it is through

practical skills in the uniformed

organisations, children taking

part in music groups or marriage

preparation sessions.

Recently a Growing Leaders

course helped people think about

and develop leadership concepts

and skills. Of course, people also

learn by doing, and there are a

variety of areas for serving in

St Chad’s that people can learn


Being a disciple of Jesus

involves learning about our own

identity and purpose: that we are

loved by God and we are called

to love others. To get your head

round that, and how to live it out,

takes a lifetime of learning.

Lay Ministry Learning

In September 2018, at the

tender age of 51 years, I

enrolled on a lay ministry

course to learn more about

God and the Bible and

discern how I can best serve him

in the future. The course is run by

St Peter’s College, a part of the

Sheffield Diocese of the Church of


The course is affiliated with

the University of Durham and

effectively forms a part of the first

year of their theology degree.

The first year is split into three

parts and commences with an

Introduction to the Bible. The

second term studies Mission

and Ministry and the final term

concludes with Church Doctrine

and History.

I have always enjoyed learning

and quickly became fascinated

by many of the different Bible

passages studied and the views

of the teachers and biblical


The process of theological

study has made me think deeply

and prayerfully about what I am

learning and what I truly believe.

I have very much enjoyed

studying mission and evangelism,

which surprised me. I have

always been slightly intimidated

by the word evangelism which for

me carries with it much baggage.

I have learned that mission is

initiated by God in a revelation

of love and divine invitation to

make central in our lives a loving

relationship with Him.

We can all take part in

the mission of God through

discerning what God is doing

around us and to then responding

with whatever we have to offer.

Today, in 2019, mission is very

much about sharing God’s love,

responding to human need,

transforming unjust structures in

society, the pursuit of peace and

reconciliation, and looking after

our planet.

I have learned that God has

been in dialogue with humanity

since the beginning of time and

that all mission is rooted in God

as a fountain of sending love.

Twenty-first century Britain

has increased in its complexity

with the explosion of technology,

mass migration and increased

diversity in a multi-faith society

with many Muslims, Hindus,

Buddhists and traditional African

religions bringing welcome

diversity and enrichment.

For me personally, I like the

idea of mission as dialogue with

people of other faiths and of

none as it points to a journey of

genuine and deep encounter.

Both parties give and receive

in a two-way exchange of gifts of

value. Where there are authentic

relationships characterised by

respect and love, there can be a

sharing of our deepest treasures,

and we all can learn and grow.

Sheffield’s Universities

Sheffield would not be the

vibrant city it is without

its two universities.

They are hugely linked

to the economy and

development of the city not

least through being among its

largest employers. Their buildings

dominate the skyline and students,

their social lives and their need for

accomodation, have a huge impact

on the economy of Sheffield.

Art and culture also benefit

immensely. The two universities

are hugely influential in the areas

of science, technology, business

as well as regional planning.

The University of Sheffield is a

member of the Russell Group of

leading research universities. It

ranks 78th in the

world and 13th

in the UK, and is

in the top ten per

cent in terms of its


It began life as

The University

College of Sheffield,

an amalgam

of three older

colleges, and was given its Royal

Charter in 1905. A multi-campus

organisation it has around 20,000

undergraduate students and 8,000


Alumni include Lord David

Blunkett, aviation pioneer Amy

Johnson, author Lee Child

and Sir Bernard Hogan-Howe,

Commissioner of the Metropolitan


The university’s Faculty of

Science is associated with six

Nobel laureates. Major research

partners include Boeing, Rools-

Royce, Siemens, Unilever and


The university’s Student’s

Union was founded in 1906 and

has nearly 300 student societies

and nearly 50 sports teams. The

Students’ Union has been voted

best in the UK for ten consecutive

years by the Times Higher

Education Student Experience


Sheffield Hallam University can

trace its origins back to 1843 when

the Sheffield School of Design

was founded to provide skilled

designers to support Britain’s

industry. Then via Sheffield School

of Art, Sheffield City Training

College and Sheffield College of

Technology, Sheffield Polytechnic

opened in 1969. Sheffield City

Polytechnic was established in

1976 and Sheffield Business

School opened in 1986.

Finally in 1992 Sheffield

Hallam University came

into being.

The university is the

11th largest in the UK

(out of 167) with around

30,000 students. It has

30 research centres.

Notable alumni include

Nick Park, creator of

Wallace and Gromit, double

Olympic medallist Dame Kelly

Holmes and fashion designer

Bruce Oldfield. Jarvis Cocker was

famously a student at the Sheffield

School of Art.

Since 2003, Sheffield Hallam

Students Union has been resident

in the ill-fated National Museum of

Popular Music.

It is difficult to imagine life

in Sheffield without these two

massive institutions. Of course, we

also have Sheffield College and

many other seats of learning. We

are indeed well served in terms of

adult learning and education.

few weeks ago my small

grandson and I went to

London for a three-day

adventure. We stayed

with family, visited the

London Transport Museum and

went on 15 trains. I chose fi ve

story books for the journey from

Sheffield to London St Pancras.

My rucksack was heavy. He’d

put two books, including Mr

Adventure, in his rucksack. I

carried that too!

Like most children, he loves

stories! He loves to hear them

again and again. He likes to tell

stories though he can’t always

fi nd the right words. He loves

to hear made-up stories but

especially true stories about his

dad as a small boy.

Adults are just the same. Stories

help make sense of our own lives,

whether we’re the story-tellers or

listening to someone else. Stories

expand our view of the world,

sparkle our imaginations, cause

us to question and wonder, clarify

what matters in life.

When I was working with

children and families in a church,

local primary schools regularly

came for a class visit. One class

got caught in a sudden torrential

downpour as they walked up

the hill. Thirty drenched sevenyear-olds

burst into the building.

Off came their shoes. Dripping

coats were draped over the pews.

Adults drank hot tea, children

hot squash with biscuits. They

were bursting to tell me about the

blocked drains and torrents of


As planned, we walked

around the church

building. Then I

told them Jesus’

story of two builders,

using umbrellas, duplo towers,

sand, grey rock-playdough

accompanied by sound effects.

One builder laid fi rm foundations

on a rock for his house, while

the other quickly constructed his

house on sand. After a violent

storm only the house on the rock

was left standing. Jesus wanted

his hearers to know they’d only

lay lasting foundations for life if

they lived as God wants. Three

years later these children hadn’t

forgotten the story of their storm.

“Ro, do you remember when...?”

They’d then tell me Jesus’

builders-in-a-storm story.

By the stories they tell, anyone

spending time with children will

communicate what’s important

to them. So Christian parents

communicate what God means

to them by their personal stories

of faith. What’s more, they can

do this by regularly reading and

sharing the amazing collection

of stories found in the Bible,

repeating the ones they like best.

Children will never forget these

stories as they build up their own

store of God stories!

My favourite Bible story book is

The Lion Storyteller Bible.

Listening, Caring and Helping

School Pastors, an exciting

to land at Meadowhead

School. But “what or who

are School Pastors?”, I

hear you ask.

Imagine just for a second being

a teenager in our modern world.

Besides the normal emotional

struggles of growing up, there are

the questions of what to wear,

what music to listen to, and what

are you aiming for in life.

You are also bombarded with

a whole host of more ‘modern’

issues: ‘my family is messy’, ‘I

have to worry about my online

presence and can’t escape from

it’, ‘how can I keep up with

the latest mime or viral

trend?’, ‘I’m under so

much pressure to


Despite all this,

can be still be loads

of fun, but we must

accept that there seems

to be an increasing amount

pressure on young people,

which appears to be affecting their

mental wellbeing.

found that over the last two

years the number of under 18s in

England accessing the services

of CAMHS (child and adolescent

mental health services) has more

than doubled.

The school environment is often

one of the most pressured, yet

schools have taken the lead on

tackling this issue, with a huge

growth in specialist services and

pastoral support that would never

have been on the radar of an

educational establishment even

15 years ago. I suspect many

headteachers feel they are doing

an excellent job with those young

people they’ve identified as in need

of additional pastoral support. I

also suspect many would have

concerns that more young people

exist who could benefit but remain

hidden or beyond the reach of their

are hoping to help. School Pastors

The Happiest Days of My Life


long time ago in the reign

of Queen Victoria, the rich

and the poor were sharply


One of the verses now

removed from the children’s hymn

All Things Bright and Beautiful read

‘The rich man in his castle, The

poor man at his gate, God made

them high or lowly and ordered

their estate’. Generations of

school children sang it at morning

assembly without ever questioning

the words. It was just the way the

world was.

Poor children did not have

an education until the mid-19th

century. From the age of around

five they formed part of the

workforce on farms or in factories

or mills. Several Acts of Parliament

were passed in order to stop this

practice and gradually all children

had, by law, to be educated and

schools as we know them began to

evolve. It was however still tough.

Many country children had to walk

several miles to school, either alone

or with siblings from a very young

age. In those days parents did not

accompany their children to school,

let alone drive them in a pony and


During the day they would learn

the three ‘R’s, history, geography

and scripture. Teachers were strict

and applied cane and ruler regularly

to keep discipline. Children who did

not keep up were made to stand in

a corner wearing a Dunce’s cap.

My own early education in the

1940s and 50s was not radically

different from this but with

composition (creative writing),

handwork (art and craft) and

singing added to the curriculum.

And, as my formative years were

spent on the Arbourthorne estate, I

can add ‘survival’. However, having

failed the 11-plus exam (I was

more often off sick then at school),

instead of going to a secondary

modern school I was transferred to

an open-air school when life was

radically different.

The school had less than 100

pupils aged five to 16 divided into

four classes plus what was then

known as a remedial class. Many of

the children had complex medical

conditions but others simply did not

get enough to eat – many foods will

still rationed until the late 1950s.

Although we learned little about the

three ‘R’s, we learned a lot about

life. Most of our time was spent

out of doors or in classrooms open

to all weathers except snow and

pouring rain. We had three meals

a day: breakfast of porridge and

treacle on arrival; dinner and tea

of hot milk and bread and jam or

cocoa and fruit cake on Fridays

before leaving.

Although we were given plenty of

TLC from the teachers and full-time

school nurse, discipline was still

strict. The remedial class teacher

named Mrs Boreham (known as

Fanny Bore ’em) still had a cane

(Mr Wood) hanging from her desk

and made regular use of the ruler.

The teacher of the top class (known

as Pop) often used the slipper on

naughty boys. Bullying however

was unknown and we children

learned to take care of each other,

the school cat Candy and all other

creatures great and small. We had

a whole hour singing lesson on

Thursdays and we certainly sang

the all the verses of All Things

Bright and Beautiful including the

last verse which reads: ‘He gave his

eyes to see them and lips that we

might tell how great is God Almighty

who has made all things well’.

I look back on my school days as

truly the happiest days of my life

For Weddings

and Funerals

You don’t have to be a churchgoer

to have a wedding in church or

be ‘religious’ to have a dignifi ed and

meaningful funeral service at St Chad’s.

If you live in the Woodseats or

Beauchief area, St Chad’s would be

delighted to help you, whether it is

planning the Big Day or saying goodbye

to a loved one.

For weddings please contact St Chad’s

church office. For funerals please tell

your funeral director that you would like

to have a church service.

• If you have had a new baby and would like to

celebrate that baby’s birth with a service in church then

please come to one of our thanksgiving and baptism

mornings at St Chad’s.

The morning will explain the difference between the

two services and give parents an opportunity to ask

any questions.

Please call the church offi ce on 0114 274 5086 if you

are interested in attending.
