Welcome to Year 8
Hello and a warm welcome back to Lincoln Castle Academy. I hope that you had a good summer holiday and that you are looking forward to a new start in this important phase of your education.
Your form mentors and I are very proud to be working with you and are excited about helping you to fulfil our school motto and Be Your Best Self. We are determined that each and every one of you will take the opportunities put your way to participate in the whole of school life. This means taking part in clubs, house events, sports day, trips and visits and charity days, representing, yourself, me, your mentor, your house and our year group in a positive way.
As students of the academy, I expect that you will take pride in your uniform and in wearing it, realise that you are representing the academy. This means you need to conduct yourself in a proper manner inside school; on trips and visits, as well as on your journey to and from school. It is essential that you are properly organised at all times, this means having your passport and writing equipment (including a spare) everyday. These things mean you will make the best impression in all lessons, every lesson. In your lessons and homework, you should work to the best of your ability, taking time and care over content and presentation to produce something you can be proud of.
Year 8 represent one of the many teams you will be part of across the Academy. We need to work together to show how wonderful we truly are and ensure we all have fun. I urge you to do your best, take pride in your work, support your peers, and be a positive person at all times. In this I urge you to act as positive role models to the new year 7 students ; remember you were in their position not so long ago and they too will need to guidance and nurturing to become positive ambassadors for the Academy.
Finally, punctuality is important; attending registration is vital for you to receive messages allowing you to get involved, allows communication so we understand any issues you need support with and helps you to feel belonging to your house team and mentor group. Make sure you are here on time with this passport ready to stay organised and make a record of all the wonderful things you can and do take part in.
