Lampton News - Week 30

Posted on May 3rd 2022


Tuesday 3rd May


Dear Parents, Carers and Students,

Welcome to our weekly update for the third week of the Summer Term 2022. Eid Mubarak to those members of our community who celebrated the festival over the weekend.

This week is Week A and our whole school assemblies are focused on International Womens’ Day - delayed from march due to our assembly on the war in Ukraine. This year’s theme is  #Break The Bias and my thanks to Ms Grantham and students for leading our assemblies and reminding us that we all play a part in breaking bias and that this theme accords with our school’s values of respect and integrity.

Please take time to read through the information in this week’s update, in particular about e-scooters. My thanks to those students and families who have supported us with uniform over the past few weeks, especially on the way to and from school. A reminder that the only jewellery to be worn is a single pair of studs and that no rings are to be worn in school in any circumstances.

With best wishes for the week ahead,

Stephen Davis


Extra-curricular timetable: 

To support students’ personal development we offer a wide range of extra-curricular activities. Please encourage your child to challenge themselves to pursue a new hobby, interest or sport by taking part! More information, including an updated extra-curricular timetable, can be found on our website.


Safeguarding briefing: 

Students in Year 9 today took part in a workshop led by representatives from TfL and the police about what to do if they are subject to, or witness sexual harassment on public transport, as part of Project Guardian to improve public safety. We encourage all parents and carers to talk to their children about what they would do if either they were subject to, or witnessed sexual harassment. This information from TfL may be useful to support the discussion:

All privately owned e-scooters are illegal to use in public. The only e-scooters that are allowed in public are ones that are part of a Government authorised rental scheme – drivers must have a driving licence, insurance (the rental money covers the insurance for the journey) and show they’re sober enough to drive by doing a test on the app. E-scooters may be confiscated by the police, and you will not be allowed to bring these onto site. 


Mock Magistrates’ Court competition:

The Mock Magistrates’ Court competition is a nationwide event organised by Young Citizens in partnership with HM Courts & Tribunals Service and the Magistrates Association. Our team of eight Year 9 students  were competing virtually against teams from six other schools in a local heat.

Rotating roles, they participated in two mock trials presided over by real magistrates. The case involved charges brought under the Protection from Harassment Act 1997 against a student accused of sending abusive messages and setting up a fake Instagram page.

In our first heat, we were drawn against Broomfield School and successfully defended the accused. 

In our second heat, acting for the Prosecution, the boot was on the other foot. Unfortunately, facing one of two teams from Alperton Community School, our lawyers weren’t quite able to meet the burden of proof and show beyond reasonable doubt that the defendant was guilty. It was a tense and challenging day for the team but they really gave a great account of themselves.
