Mr Alex Lingard BSc (Hons)
Head Teacher
May I take this opportunity to thank parents for their feedback. A number of you have been in touch and it is so nice to receive such lovely comments about the school. We recently held a Year 7 parents' coffee morning and were delighted with the response about how well the children have settled in from a parents' perspective.

Having just read the draft of our next edition of The Reflection (due out very soon) I'm almost exhausted at the thought of all the activities, events and trips that have taken place over the last few months. It really is a cracking read and I hope you enjoy all the articles about the school and some of the local primaries when it comes out.

I am delighted to announce that the British Council have awarded the school an award for our work on democracy. We are only 1 of 60 schools nationally to receive the Discovering Democracy Award and the only school in Cornwall. This is a recognition of the work students have been doing in PHSCE, the work of our student council and year councils, our participation in the Youth Parliament elections, our mock general election in May and our visit from Lord Teverson before Christmas. We also have been able to secure a visit for students to the Houses of Parliament after Easter.

At Liskeard we are excited about the term ahead. We have many things planned and so much to look forward to. I always think that the start of a new year and a new term is a good time for reflection. Last term was certainly a busy one, but finished with a number of wonderful events, including the school production of The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, and of course, the annual Christmas Concert. Both were well received and we were very proud of all the students involved.

Obviously our main duty as a school is to ensure students are happy and safe from harm. As part of our safeguarding practice we have spent the last 3 weeks during tutor time looking at why and how young people get drawn into extremism and radicalisation. Assemblies, Newswatch and discussion time during PHSCE lessons have been used to give students a better understanding of the issues. All the resources we have used plus some guidance for parents can be found on the school website (Parents/Carers > PHSCE). I strongly recommend you have a look and talk to your son/daughter about the issues that we have discussed.
