Message from the Principal

Dear Parent/Carer
This term we’ve been thinking about what it means to be a coherent community.  At Derby Moor, it means that we value each other and make sure that we feel safe.  Being part of a community also means that we are part of something bigger.  It’s not just about the individual, but about all of us together.
We show that we are an effective community by having respect for one another, and by showing that we value each other through our actions. This can be small gestures such as holding a door open, or greeting someone in the morning.  We can also show it by supporting one another to achieve our absolute best in all things.  As we move to Year 11’s final few days at school before their exams, we can show this by supporting them at what is often a stressful time.
Parents also have their part to play in this.  You help us be an effective community by supporting our ethos, values and aims, and also by ensuring that your child meets our expectations.  If you ever have a concern about this or have difficulty in doing this, please make sure you contact the school at your earliest opportunity.
I really enjoyed the Charity week we had before Easter.  That really was a fantastic example of “community” in action.  We raised nearly £2000 for our nominated charities which are St Trizah School in Kenya, Cancer Research and Smile a local respite facility for children.

Charity Week
At the end of last term, the charities and volunteering student voice team arranged a number of activities, a photo booth and cake sales to raise money for three charities: 
  • St Trizah School, Kenya
  • Cancer Research
  • Smile 
Charity Week was a great success and an incredible £1725.60 was raised.
The two winners for the number of sweets in a jar were:
Large Jar- Imogen Griffiths (SO)
Small Jar-Sophie Priestley(SP)
Well done to GHIPA and KSIHO who won the form time quiz.

This term Mr Smith has run assemblies on the importance of Community.  At Derby Moor we create and support a sense of belonging so that all members of the school community feel valued and are kept safe.
Mr Smith set all students a challenge:
  • To be on time to school and lessons
  • To keep noise to a minimum so that it does not disrupt lessons.

Safeguarding Guide for Parents and Carers

We have put together a booklet to give you some information about how you can help to keep your child safe. We will be sending a copy home with all students and will also have some available on reception at school.
