Year 8

As students move from Year 7 into Year 8, it is an opportunity for them to take more responsibility for themselves and their learning. This responsibility is widely encouraged at The Long Eaton School, as we strive to encourage students to become independent learners. Year 8 requires students to be even more focused and committed to their learning as they will be choosing their Key Stage 4 options in the Spring term. 

Life Skills

These lessons are led by the form tutor and include personal, social and health education. Topics covered in Year 8 include:

  • Sex and Relationships
  • Self Esteem
  • Personal Finance
  • Exam Skills
  • Drugs and Alcohol Education
  • Careers
  • Bereavement, Stress and Depression
  • Online Safety
  • Bulling and Friendship
  • British Values and Local Democracy

 

Rewards

At The Long Eaton School we know how important it is to reinforce positive behaviour and attitude and we implement a variety of different curriculum and past oral rewards throughout the year. We promote and reinforce academic progress through our termly Curriculum Award Assemblies and at our annual Presentation Evening. During the school day we reinforce positive behaviour by awarding students positive points on Classcharts, this gives students and parents immediate updates on their achievements through the Classcharts App. Points collected lead to individual and collective rewards, like trips and reward events, every point will also contribute towards the whole school house competition,
