Press Release for GCSE Results 2020

The Isle of Wight Education Federation Governors, Leadership and staff would like to commend the Year 11 students from both Carisbrooke College and Medina College for their resilience and understanding over what has been an unusual and uncertain end to the final year of this stage of their education. The students may not have taken exams, but we all recognise and celebrate their hard work and commitment over a period of years which has attributed to the grades that they have received today.

We know that a large amount of students will be continuing their studies with us at The Island VI Form and very much look forward to working with them to further their education in a more independent way. Any student from across the Island who is still undecided on their next step but would be interested in joining The Island VI Form can complete an application form which can be found on our website. Being the only VI Form on the Island with a dedicated site just for our VI Form students does make us unique.

Matthew Parr-Burman, Executive Headteacher for the Isle of Wight Education Federation said “I am extremely proud of the students from both schools and wish them every success in the next stage of their lives. I would also like to acknowledge the immense amount of hard work and integrity that the staff have displayed during this challenging time. I am confident that the Centre Assessed Grades are an accurate reflection of what the students would have achieved under normal circumstances.”

Attendance

Attendance


At Medina College, each pupil is important to and valued by us. We have a commitment to providing the best possible education for each student and that cannot be achieved if attendance is poor.

Medina College expects the highest attendance from all students at all times. Absences from school lead to lost learning and affect academic achievement. Medina College supports students and their families to ensure that excellent attendance is achieved.

THE FEDERATION ATTENDANCE TARGET FOR 2020 – 2021 IS 100%

Students are informed of school, year group and tutor group attendance achievements on a weekly basis. Families and students are informed of individual attendance achievements at least three times a year during assessment periods and parent teacher consultation evenings.

Parent Voice

Parent Voice


The College values our Parent Voice and we have built on the College’s previous excellent achievements which included being awarded the National Leading Parent Partnership Award (LPPA).

What is Medina College Parent Voice?
Parent Voice is run by the parents of the College for the parents, with direct links to the leadership team and the governors. Medina College welcomes input from parents, recognising that students enjoy school more, behave better and achieve more when their parents have a positive relationship with the school.

Am I automatically a member?
Any adult who is a carer or parent of a student at Medina College is automatically a member of Medina College Parent Voice and is welcome to attend meetings.

Is it the same as a Parent Teacher Association?
Parent Voice is parent-led. We invite the Head of School or another senior leader to our meetings, so they can ask for our feedback on what’s being planned for the school, and answer our questions. We sometimes have guest speakers. We also invite a governor to attend. A member of the school staff acts as our school link for any questions that come up; but the membership itself is made up of Medina College parents/carers. It’s a great chance to find out more about what’s going on in school, meet staff and other parents and share news and ideas.

When and where does it meet?
Parent Voice meets in school once every half-term in the Medina College Library. Dates for 2020-21 meetings will be shared shortly. 

Student Voice

Student Voice


Medina College Student voice has been running for 4 years.

We have an elected executive committee:

Chair – Axel Shorrock

Vice Chair –  Georgie Gobby

Prefect Liaison Officer – Tilly Grimshaw

PR liaison officer –  Alicia Davison

Secretary – Hannah Flowers.

We have several 3 Sub Groups – Teaching and Learning, Events and PR.

Over the years we have worked with UNLOC national student voice forum sharing work across the island.  This has resulted in the opening of the TLC support room which offers a safe place for the School Pastors to work with our vulnerable children and gives our children who are dealing with a variety of issues a calm sanctuary.

We have attended the Island Youth Conference and shared ideas with local businesses and community projects.

We attended the Child Exploitation Exhibition and created a display from all the information we had gathered for display in the canteen at school.

We have also been involved with the Newport Regeneration Project –  inviting guest speakers in who used our students to help with their research and development of ideas for the local community.

We have also held a Youth Leadership Workshop led by UNLOC, and held at Medina College.

We have run charity events, Christmas and Summer fete and cake sales.  We have raised money for mental health charities, Mountbatten and many other National Charities.

Students have been recording a voice cast of the newsletter weekly. This is put onto the student drive to be played during tutor time each week.

We also now have a close relationship with the Parent Voice who support us in our charity endeavours, such as the Summer Fete.

We also liaise with the headteacher about upcoming events and ideas.

 

Our direct email address is student.voice@medina.iow.sch.uk

 

Upcoming events 

Moving forward we are looking at running Federation Student Voice Forums across the year with 3 workshop days  and guest speakers.  These will be used to target a project for each school and build the skills that are needed to bring the project to fruition.  This will end with a celebration day in the last week of summer term.
