A range of agencies & services from the local area are meeting each month at BHHS to discuss how they can work together on a wide range of opportunities for young people, their families & the local community. Representatives from 20 different organisations have already attended and many new links have been made between the agencies. They include our partner primary schools, colleges, emergency & health services and partners from various children’s, family & ethnic groups.
Driving Skills & Road Safety In the safety of the school premises, BSM instructors gave a series of “taster” driving lessons to our year 11 students. They were taught basic manoeuvres and techniques to control the car along with valuable road safety advice and information. These sessions have proved very popular as they combine the serious issues of becoming a new young driver with the fun and exciting aspects of driving for the first time. Our students were praised by the instructors for their ability and attitude to driving which they said would help them when starting out on the road by themselves.
Art in the Community Students from BHHS, along with 3 other city schools, were asked to design a piece of artwork themed around aspects of community in Stoke-on-Trent. The artwork was professionally printed and mounted to form a 3m x 2m mural which is now on show at the Bentilee Neighbourhood Centre. The mural was unveiled by The Lord Mayor for the City of Stoke-on-Trent, Councillor Denver Tolley.
Improving Local Facilities Takeover Day offers young people a chance to work with adults and get involved in decision making. A group of year 7 & 8 students were asked for their ideas on redeveloping the Drive Park area of Birches Head. Our students worked with local police officers and councillors to produce a proposal for the area that will appeal to all members of the local community. Their plans are currently being reviewed.
Police Post Volunteer technicians from the BHHS community IT group installed equipment into the local Police Post at the Bridge Centre in Birches Head.
Learning With Partners for Science We have linked up with the Police to increase awareness of a range of issues which affect our community, including road safety around the school. Here we see students checking the speed of cars passing the school entrance. This activity was also used to support their science work when studying how speed was calculated.
