Once it has reset connect to your WiFi.

Windows 10 = “Setup for an Organisation” and use your school email and password (Guide)
Apple iPad = use your school email and password to register the device with Apple

Now the device should connect to Lightspeed Systems.

Any problems, please bring your device to the Network Team Office next to IT2 (Mr Yeomans).

Learners of the Week

Our learners of the week were both nominated by maths this week.

Demi-Lea Small was nominated by Mr Morgan who said “I’ve been really impressed by Demi’s attitude and resilience recently. She has taken the advice that I have given her on board and stuck with new topics rather than giving up because it is difficult. This has meant that she has learned expanding brackets and has done very well on her RYG.”

Nikita Batsford was nominated by Miss Taylor for her fantastic work and contributions in maths.

Well done to both winners and to all the nominees.


Learners of the Week

Our learner of the week for KS3 was Ava Steel.  Ava was nominated by performing arts for working hard and challenging herself in every lesson and as a result is making outstanding progress in music.  Well done Ava!

For KS4 the learner of the week was Riley Wilkinson. Riley was nominated by English as he has shown such a passion for learning of The Sign of Four and has been actively engaged in lessons, which has led him to be successful in gaining a sound understanding of the novella.  Well done Riley and also to all the other nominees.

Daily Message

Dear Parents,

Congratulations to Jessica Irving in Year 10 who has won the ‘Autumn in Workington’  photography competition! Her photograph of Harrington Beach was a well deserved first place. Also congratulations to Melissa McKenzie and Marwa Abdulkareem who have won the Mayor’s Christmas Card Competition. Well done to all three students!

We have had a third positive case in Year 11. Year 11 have not been in school since last Thursday. The year group are due back in school next Thursday 19th November.

Thank you to you all for providing packed lunches. Again, we wish all students recovering at home a speedy recovery.

Thank you to Mrs Fowler who made all the staff a mince pie today. They were delicious.

Please keep safe at home this weekend,

Jacky Kennedy

Thank you

We would like to thank Superfish in Workington for going above and beyond for our community when we had to close the school yesterday.  They kindly, and generously, offered to provide hot meals for our pupils on Free School Meals to ensure everyone ate yesterday.

Thank you Superfish!

We have another positive case in Year 9. This student has not been in school since last week, so this case does not affect any other students in school. We wish him and the others a speedy recovery.

Our students adapted fabulously today to the packed lunch arrangements. Thank you for changing your routines to allow this to happen.

If you are passing on Harrington Road, you will see our first canopy covering the yard.

Creative Media Hub

A first look at our new Creative Media Hub. At St Joseph’s we believe that practical subjects are really important and so we have invested in our curriculum to make sure that all students have access to creative and practical lessons. In this room our photography, art and media lessons will take place once the computers are wired up!

Thanks to all who have made this possible.
