Ofsted Outstanding

Year 6 Open Evening Thursday 25th September 2014

Dear Parents/Carers

We will be holding our annual Year 6 Open Evening between 4:30pm-7:00pm on Thursday 25th September 2014. In preparation for this important event we will be closing the school for Year 7-11 students at 2.30pm. We apologise in advance for this necessary change to the school day and kindly request that you contact your child's year team leader should this be a problem for you.

The school has much to celebrate, including our membership of the Mayor of London's Gold Club, National Teaching School and our Ofsted 'Outstanding' judgment. The Open Evening is an important opportunity for families to visit the school and make an informed choice about their son's or daughter's future education. Please encourage your neighbours and friends who have children in Years 5 and 6 to visit us. They will be warmly welcomed and will have the opportunity to tour the school site.

Students are required to return to school, as normal, on Friday 26th September 2014 at 9:00am. All students are expected to wear full school uniform and must bring all their equipment with them (planner, pen, pencil, ruler, reading book and a bag).

I would also like to take this opportunity to invite you to our next Parents' Tea and Coffee Morning on Thursday 25th September 2014 at 9:15am. It will take place in the new St Paul's Way Foundation Infant site, which is located in the Burdett Estate on Masjid Lane.

Thank you for your continued support.

SPWT Students Beattie Green and Myrtle Bolt win the
Thames Youth Art Competition 2014

Watch the award winning film "I Live Here"

Congratulations to Beatrice Green and Myrtle Bolt for winning the audience vote at THAMES Youth Art Competition for their film titled "I Live Here".

Congratulations also to Jahed Hussain for second runner up in the youth vote at THAMES Youth Art Competition for his photography series "Deliquesce"

Here is what Beattie and Myrtle said about their work:

This film is our interpretation of the theme 'I live here'.
We love stories; hearing and telling them in every way and we wanted to express how they can consume everything. How you can become so invested in them that you feel like you live there, with the characters. Our main character is an interesting one. She is monotone and boring; a decision made deliberately to create a contrast between her and the vivid stories she so loves. We also liked the comical aspects of such a strange and drifting character. Another more subtle but important aspect of the film was that it was all filmed where we live so that even though we took the theme more broadly you still get a sense of our location. We hope you enjoy watching as much as we enjoyed making!

A Well-Earned Victory

Nayem Uddin 10L
Posing with the trophy, after his great performance


After two years of being awarded second place in the Tower Hamlets EBP Public Speaking Competition, this year we came first and scooped the Borough's public speaking 'Crown'. Nayem Uddin 10L was awarded first prize in the event having competed against 15 Borough secondary schools. In the grand final Nayem was up against eleven other speakers. His passionate and insightful speech on the theme of 'personal identity' brought huge applause from the audience and proved to be the judging panel's favourite. Lloyds of London hosted the competition at their prestigious offices in the City.

Nayem explained: 'The competition was very challenging, it was both nerve-wracking and exciting at the same time. My chosen topic was about being true to oneself, as Oscar Wilde famously said 'be yourself, everyone else is taken'. Speaking in public to such large audiences is not easy, what helped me was one of my father's sayings 'There is no success without obstacles'.'

Nayem was awarded a silver trophy and a cheque for the school. 'With the money we have decided to buy books for the library, I'm thrilled that there will be 'plates' inside to commemorate my success and hopefully inspire St Paul's Way Trust speakers of the future.'

Our school has also been praised for our outstanding record of success in the competition over the last three years.
