C.I.T.'s Got Talent!

MaxLucasTwo pupils from C.I.T. Academy schools have landed roles in the Guildhall Arts Centre 2018 pantomime – Peter Pan!

Isaac Newton School pupil, Max Lygo (11), will be playing the part of Michael in the iconic story telling of Peter Pan.

Max attended an audition for the role in July and has been attending the group since.

Max said, “I’m very, very excited, I haven’t acted before so this is my first really big responsibility and I’m really looking forward to it.”

GANF pupil, and Head Boy at Ambergate Sports College, Lucas Wilson (15), has also landed a role in this year’s pantomime. Lucas will play the parts of The Lost Boy Leader, Nana the dog, the crocodile and an Indian Chief.

Lucas said, “I was over whelmed to get these roles! I have been acting since I was little, taking part in many holiday drama clubs and even performing once alongside Bobby Davro. I have just had my first proper rehearsal and it was great.”

PolkaDot Pantomimes fly off to the magical world of Neverland throughout December and the New Year at The Guildhall Arts Centre in Grantham.

CEO elected to help schools thrive

PeterThe CEO of C.I.T. Academies, Peter Bell, is among 32 names of academy leaders across England elected to help shape the future of schools in their local areas. The announcement was made by the Department for Education.

The leaders – who were elected by their peers across the country – were chosen because they have the right experience and local knowledge to take on this important role. They will each join one of the eight regional Headteacher Boards across England. The boards provide support to the Regional Schools Commissioners in those areas as they work to provide effective oversight of local schools and advise the National Schools Commissioner, Sir David Carter and the government.

Peter Bell (pictured) said, “I am delighted to have been appointed to the Regional School Commissioner’s (RSC) Headteacher Board (HTB). 

I am grateful for the support of my fellow Academy Head Teachers and that of the Lincolnshire Learning Partnership board.  I hope I will be able to share with the RSC and the rest of the HTB, an understanding of the unique area we serve across Lincolnshire.”

Parliamentary, Under Secretary of State for the School System, Sir Theodore Agnew, said, "Headteacher Boards have already shown they can provide invaluable support in improving the education of pupils across England and I’d like to thank everyone who has played an important role so far.

The local expertise and wisdom of the newly elected members will be vital in helping schools continue to flourish and I look forward to working with them in my new role.”

The newly elected members will build on the successes of the previous Headteacher Boards, which have been in place since July 2014 when the role of Regional Schools Commissioner was created. The Headteacher Boards have already helped a growing number of academies to share expertise with neighbouring schools and within multi-academy trusts, driving improvement for thousands of pupils.

Two additional board members will be appointed by each Regional Schools Commissioner, and the board will be able to appoint further members to fill skills or expertise gaps in the future. Those elected to Headteacher Boards do not have decision-making powers, but provide local expertise to inform the decisions of National and Regional Schools Commissioners and ministers.

National Schools Commissioner, Sir David Carter, said, "Over the last three years the expertise of Headteacher Boards has been so important in helping to create a self-managing and ever-improving education system.

I know from personal experience how much Headteacher Boards help inform decisions and I’m looking forward to working with the newly-elected members to help make our school system even better.”

Isaac Newton playing Lincoln City FC?

Isaac Newton pupils will play on the pitch at Lincoln City Football Club!

There have been celebrations all round at Isaac Newton Primary School, following Year 6 pupils winning a recent football tournament in Lincoln.Isaac at Lincoln City

The boy’s football team travelled to Sincil Bank Stadium, home of Lincoln City FC, to compete in a countywide six-a-side competition. The team played with determination and commitment, winning their league, which has resulted in the opportunity to play on the actual pitch at Lincoln City FC!

This amazing opportunity for the pupils will take place during half time at The Imps’ upcoming fixture against Port Vale on November 25th.

The children were competing for the first time in their brand new kit, which they were awarded by the Premier League Primary Stars.

Isaac Newton sports instructor Laura Jones said: “The boys were a real credit to the school throughout the day. The standard of play was exceptionally high and we were so proud of them.

“Their skill and awareness of the game really showed and after a nail-biting last fixture, they were awarded overall winners of their league. They now can’t wait to have the opportunity to play on the pitch at Lincoln City FC.”
