A logo is a symbol, sign, or emblem
We have created an exciting opportunity for your child to; quite literally, leave their mark upon the
school for years to come!
We are launching a competition to design a logo for department areas in the school. Pupils can
enter as many times as they like and for as many departments. The rules are:
 It must be on A4 plain paper
 Logo only on the front. We will add the lettering
 Pupil’s name and the department they have designed for on the back
 Designs may be hand drawn or produced using a computer
 Deadline is Monday 28th April
 Please hand entries to the school office
The winning entries will be professionally displayed in the appropriate areas of the school and there
will be prizes presented to the winners in assemblies. So this is a chance for pupils to have their art
work displayed and admired for years to come and something they can put on their CV, especially if
they are thinking of pursuing a career in the Arts.
Best of luck

Dear Parents
I would like to invite anyone interested to come along to our new Parents’ Forum meeting. The
purpose of this is to look at how the school communicates to parents about their children’s learning
and strive to improve it. The first meeting will be to seek your views about the school reports that
we send home to inform you about your child’s achievement and progress. This meeting will take
place at 6pm on Wednesday April 30th. Please meet Mrs Knight in the school foyer.
If you are interesting in coming along to help us improve our reporting system, then please email me
at [email protected] or leave your details with the school office.
Mrs Knight, Assistant Headteacher

Dear Parents
We are hoping to run a number of classes for parents in the summer term:
Basic First aid with Mr Uddin and Miss West
This will take place in the Drama Studio Room E1-04 from 1.45-2.45 pm on Tuesday 29th April.
Managing your teenager’s behaviour with Miss Lawless and Miss Mear
This will be in the Life and Learning Zone from 3.30-4.30 pm on Tuesday 10th June
Cooking healthy and easy family meals on a budget with Miss Bunting and Miss Hutchings
This will be a practical cookery session with recipe ideas for you to take away as well as the delicious
dish you will have made! Depending on numbers we will run two sessions on the day and you may
cook with your child if they attend this school. This session will run on Wednesday 9th July from
9-11am and 1-3pm. We just ask that you contribute £2 to cover the cost of the ingredients.
We are also hoping to run additional sessions after May half term about supporting your child with
literacy and reading, helping your child with maths and basic ICT skills.
If you are interested in attending any of these classes or have any questions, please contact Mrs
Knight ([email protected]) or leave your details with the school office.
Year 9 Sociology:
Mrs Fleming-Wood’s Year 9 Sociology class are all excelling themselves in their research projects. I
am really impressed by their incredible maturity in handling some difficult research topics. They
have all shown huge commitment and organisational skills and have demonstrated knowledge and
progress by applying the theoretical knowledge they have learned to real research situations. Well
done every single member of 9M.
Thank you to all staff who have assisted the pupils by filling in questionnaires, being interviewed or
allowing them to visit/observe your classes.
Ms Fleming-Wood
Parlez-vous français??? Exciting news in MFL:
After the Easter Holidays groups of pupils in year 8 and 7 will be given the opportunity to learn
French for the rest of this academic year.
From September 2014 all year 7s will study French. In year 8 and 9 the most able pupils will be
timetabled for both languages thus enabling them to choose one or the other or even both at GCSE
in year 10.
The MFL team vous remercie de votre attention

Year 8 student Parys Snooks:
Parys had her hair shaved off on Friday 21st March in order to raise funds for cancer charities
through Sports Relief. She has so far raised over £2000 and her donation page is
www.justgiving.com/Parys-Snooks. The total expected when other money comes in and with gift aid
is approximately £3000! Parys said “I was inspired to do this by Jessie J and in memory of both my
late Grandfathers, both of whom died of cancer. I am also donating my hair to The Little Princess
Trust who make wigs for children who are going through cancer treatment. I was so nervous when
they started to cut my hair but I know it’s going to such a worthy cause”.
Parys’ Mother said “I am extremely proud of Parys for doing such an inspiring thing at her age, she
has never had her hair cut so this is a lifetimes worth of growth! We are very grateful for all of the
support and encouragement she has received from the school, it’s given her the confidence to see it
through in times when she got a bit nervous! Students and staff at the Warren have been very
supportive – thank you.
Mr Farnsworth Assistant Headteacher said “ This is such an amazing and inspirational achievement
from a student so young, we are very proud of her. She gave inspirational assemblies all week and
the students attended during their lunch break in their hundreds to support her”.
New York Trip
A group of 20 Business/ICT Warren students and Sixth Formers were lucky enough to visit New York
City during the February half term. The students ranging from Year 10-13 had a packed itinerary
which included visits to the New York Stock Exchange, Wall Street, Ellis Island, the Statue of Liberty,
the Empire State Building, the Freedom Tower and the relatively new iconic Apple store.
Students completed Business related case studies and were able to experience a slice of life in the
big apple. Students were particularly humbled by the scale of the freedom tower and paid their
respects at the 9/11 memorial centre.

Mr Lall (Group Leader)
Accelerated Reader:
Any holiday is obviously a perfect opportunity for pupils to read for pleasure, so please support your
child by taking an interest in what they are reading and asking them to share this with you.
The importance of reading cannot be emphasised enough as the single most important factor for all
pupils to increase their chances of doing well across the curriculum, and
it has been particularly encouraging to see so many students challenging themselves by reading
more demanding books.
Pupils in Years 7 and 8 are involved in the Accelerated Reader initiative which is an enormously
powerful tool for helping pupils progress in their reading and for staff to monitor this. Pupils are
given regular opportunities in English lessons and form time to borrow books and take the online
quizzes. The scheme is going from strength to strength, with borrowing from the library at an alltime high and more quizzes than ever being passed.
Pupils are given the ‘5-Star Reader’ award when they have successfully completed five Accelerated
Reader quizzes on books they have read, and we have a number of pupils who are well on their way
to becoming ‘reading millionaires’ by reading over a million words since September.
Reading Assemblies:
It has been a pleasure to see Year 7 students sharing their enthusiasm for reading by presenting
readings from their favourite books at assemblies. We have been treated to two assemblies in which
5
whole classes have presented extracts with all class members taking part. Ms Shaikh’s form gave a
lively reading from Roald Dahl’s ‘Revolting Rhymes’ and Ms Purcell’s form presented a very animated
scene from ‘Matilda’ – complete with live cake eating!
Readathon:
We would like to express our sincere thanks to all those who took part in Readathon and those who
pledged sponsorship money. Pupils in Years 7 and 8 have raised a total of £847.45 which will be
used to support the work of four charities: CLIC Sargent children’s cancer charity, Roald Dahl’s
Marvellous Children’s Charity, ReadWell and Together for Short Lives, all of which provide support
for help terminally or seriously ill children. This is the most we have ever raised for this very worthy
cause. Our top fundraiser was Zeeshan Ahmed who raised £36.50.
Mr Todd
Change4Life:
Some year 7, 8 and 9 students will be taking part in a healthy lifestyle group: Change4Life
They will taking part in a healthy lifestyle programme designed to help and promote fitness of young

Internet Safety Evening held on Tuesday 1st April 2014
Parents of students in Years 7 and 8 were invited to come along and were given information on:
“Just as you have rules to keep your child safe in the real world such as letting you know where they
are going, who they’ll be with and what time they should come home, It’s a good idea to have
similar rules about using the internet”
There were two talks and Questions/Answer Sessions and we hope they found worthwhile.

Dear Parents,
I would just like to bring to your attention some of our recent sporting achievements; once again our
Year 11 Netball team which includes Georgia Lucas, Katie Lucas, Cemone Collins, Abbie Rainbird,
Emma Hodge, Afua Amponah-Abedi and Sylvia Githinji have had another very successful year.
The girls were awarded bronze medals at the Borough Netball rally (narrowly missing out on silver
after going down to six players) and achieving third place overall in the Borough League. They have
been great ambassadors and representatives for the school throughout the years and have been by
far the most successful netball team we have had. They have been an absolute privilege to coach
and I couldn't be more proud.
I would just like to acknowledge the success of our Inter-house competitions this week, with 97 girls
across Years 7 to 10 coming along to participate and compete for their houses, with Year 10 girls
proving the most enthusiastic with 40 girls attending. Behaviour has been impeccable and it has
been great to see that the student’s passion for their houses is still thriving. Every girl that attended
this week has been awarded a positive SLEUTH and the Sports leaders will be visiting assemblies next
7
week to announce results and awards. Please could I just add a special thank you to Mr Uddin, Mr
Micek and Mr Tyrell for their support this week, all the form tutors who helped to promote the
events and please congratulate the following Sports Leaders for running such a successful week of
Inter-house competitions:
Afua Amponsah-Abedi, Cemone Collins, Sylvia Githinji, Cassidy Nelson, Abbie Rainbird, Tara Tutu,
Awana Talla Cravid, Elsbeth Matcham, Simran Kaur, Charlie Gibson, Artea Isufi, Darcie Gibson, Kerry
Dagger-Smith, Taylor Mann, Lauren Hickson, Molly Jones, Abigail Brown, Arj Ayub and Yasmena
Begum.

Borough Football Update
This year the PE Department have been responsible for organising the Football Competitions for all
schools within the Borough. This has involved organising the Borough Cup competition and liaising
with our colleagues in other PE departments to schedule league fixtures. Organising the
competitions allows all pupils within the Borough of Barking and Dagenham to develop and improve
their skills.
The story so far…
Year 7
The year 7 students have managed to play a number of teams in the Borough this year and although
not getting the results they would have liked the enthusiasm and commitment to attending fixtures
and training has been fantastic. This year is all about developing skills and attitudes and we are
confident that they will continue to progress in the next term.
Year 8
The year 8 team has done well so far this term and narrowly missed out on a Borough Cup semifinal. The quality of their play has improved from last year, with players developing technically,
physically and tactically. This team has potential to do well in the following years.
Year 9
The year 9 team have had a mixed season so far this term. They managed to make it to the Borough
semi-finals, losing to All Saints in a well contested game. However, performances in the league have
not been to the high standard set over the past two years. Last season this team lost in the final and
the year before they were Borough Cup winners so there is definitely more to come in the next
term.
Year 10
The year 10 team have started to produce some excellent performances, with all members
improving their skills over the past few years. A few players have been selected to play for the
current Year 11 team due to their rapid progress and have made key contributions in games against
older opposition. They are currently competing in the Essex, London and Borough Cup so things look
good for some potential silverware coming to Warren.
8
Year 11
Although pre-occupied with studies the current Year 11 team have managed to compete in both
Borough and Essex Cup competitions, losing narrowly in both competitions. They have shown a
mature attitude this term and have some gifted players who may well go on after school to compete
at a higher level.
Girls (All Years)
Girls football is growing in popularity with pupils regularly attending training sessions run by
Dagenham and Redbridge Football Club. They have competed in Essex Cup competitions and
recently took part in the Essex FA Futsal Championship. The year 7 group are showing huge promise
with one or two players being by highlighted by Miss Rodney as having the talent to play at a higher
level outside of school.
Mr Jafar
Year 11 – Catering Practical Assessments
Earlier this term Year 11 Catering students completed their second practical assessment as part of
their GCSE Catering course. The challenge was to plan, prepare and serve a two-course meal for two
people from a country of their choice. Students have been busy researching food and cuisine from
their chosen country and trialling suitable dishes. It was really good to see dishes chosen from many
different countries including Great Britain, France, Italy, Spain, Greece and USA. Some students
chose to produce meals that reflected their own culture and included China, India, Lithuania and
Russia. All the students worked efficiently and competently, and displayed a high level and varied
range of practical catering skills. The dishes were all served showing a high standard of
presentation.
Well done for an excellent effort by all the students.

BILLY ELLIOT THEATRE TRIP!
The Creative and Performing Arts faculty are organising a Year 7 and 8 theatre trip to watch ‘Billy
Elliot’ in the West End on June 26th and we are offering students tickets at a reduced rate of £30!

Mr Merry and Miss Lyus
Raspberry Pi Foundation
Well done to my year 7s for entering the Raspberry Pi Foundation's "Hour of code" competition and
winning 5 Google Raspberry Pis. Our budding programmers were among 15,000 students who took
part and will now be able to create their own games using programming, make music and learn to
do many things with this that other people can only do with a larger computer. Raspberry Pis are
credit card sized computers developed in the UK to promote the teaching of computer science in
Schools. Well done year 7s, you have done Warren School Proud and you should be very proud of
yourselves.

Science Club
From crime scenes to aeronautical engineering, year 7 science club has been awash with keen
scientists and even keener science teachers. Mondays after school have been filled with whizzes,
bangs, mystery and overall carnage as gruesome creatures devour their prey (and that’s not just Mr
Julian-Ottie’s post school tea break). As we head in to the summer term there will be yet more
madness, mischief and mayhem from the science department. So year 7s pop along to G2:32!

Thought of the week
Year 7 students are given the thought of the week in each weekly assembly. This is something

Year 8 News:
Greetings to all Year 8 parents from the Year 8 team. The past half term has been very busy, with
many sporting and charity events taking place at the school. It has been great to see the Year 8s
improve their attendance. We have had a focus in assembly on taking responsibility for their
actions, treating others with respect, and setting and achieving their own goals.
Attendance:
After a dip in the January/February half-term, Year 8 saw a steady rise in attendance over March and
April, resulting in our winning of the Attendance Trophy for the week commencing 10/03/14. We
have challenged the year group to continue with this good result, and while we slipped to second
place the next week, I look forward to the Year 8s winning the trophy again soon.
Many forms have won the Year group Attendance Award this half term. Congratulations to:

Year 9:
Year 9 pupils are continuing to grow from strength to strength. Each week in assembly, students are
being rewarded for all their brilliant achievements. It makes me so proud to be able to recognise
and honour their positive contributions to the school as well as to their own academic success.
Behaviour continues to improve around the school and year 9 students are striving to improve their
behaviour for learning skills.
Diary Crest:
The year 9s have been offered a wonderful opportunity to attend a recruitment day next term at
Dairy Crest. We were very pleased with the interest expressed by year 9 pupils and the effort they
put into their application. Next term, 25 students will have the opportunity to visit Dairy Crest and
participate in a recruitment day – they will compete with their peers for a fictional job at Dairy Crest.
Students will be required to submit an application and then go through the regular short list process.
Those who are short listed will then be interviewed. Those who are not short-listed will have the
opportunity to go through their applications and receive feedback on how they could be improved.
This is an invaluable opportunity for our students. We hope that this will become an opportunity
that will open to more year 9 pupils as the year progressed. Congratulations to those students who
have applied already and will be attending the first day.
Year 9 Tutor Information:
If you have any concerns or comments that you feel would aid your child in getting the best out of
each day, please contact the relevant Form Tutor as you first port of call:
 9CBU (Mrs K. Hunt/Miss J. Stewart)
 9MJJ (Mr M. Jafar)
 9SIS (Mr S. Islam)
 9DMI (Mr D. Millar)
 9MDU (Mrs M. Duke)
 9GMU (Mr G. Murray)
 9THI (Ms T. Hibbert)
 9GBU (Mr G. Butler)
Together, with the form tutor, Mrs Hunt (Year Supervisor) and Miss Stewart (Head of Year), we will
endeavour to ensure that your child’s learning needs are met and they are able to access the
curriculum to reach their best potential.
Attendance:
Year 9 have now entered a very intense competition with the year 10s for best attendance each
week. Unfortunately, year 10 have managed to come out on top more times than we would have
liked. As a result, all year 9s have been challenged to be in school every day, unless absolutely
necessary. Please be sure to book hospital appointments etc. outside of school hours where
possible, to ensure that your son/daughter is receiving the best possible chance at reaching their
goals.
Attendance iPad Incentive:
Mr Hewison also issued another challenge to year 9s in an assembly this half term – another
opportunity to be entered into the draw for an iPad at the end of the school year. Starting 12th
March, any student who maintains 100% attendance until the end of the year, will have their name
entered into the draw. All students who finish the year with 100% for the entire year will have their
names entered twice.
18
Competition between the forms has been tight this past half term. Mr Butler and 9GBU have tried
desperately to hold onto their title, but have been beaten out by other forms on numerous
occasions. The following were the winning forms since the week of 10th February 2014:
 Mr Butler and 9GBU with 96.9%
 Mr Butler and 9GBU with 97.24%
 Mrs Duke and 9MDU with 95%
 Mr Butler and 9GBU with 96.23%

Year 10:
Yet again, the term has ended with a series of positive events celebrating the outstanding work and
achievements of our pupils in year 10. Over the past number of weeks we have congratulated and
recognised the pupils success. The students have continued to conduct themselves in a positive
manner which I know I will see until the end of the academic year. I would like to reiterate from the
last parents letter that it is a privilege to be entrusted with the position of looking after all of our
Year 10 students as I believe they are the best year group in the school. My aim, looking forward to
them going into year 11 next year, is that these students will receive the best academic grade The
Warren School has ever seen.
Both myself and Miss Haynes, along with the year 10 form tutors, have been working tirelessly over
the past number of months to ensure that the pupils will continue to flourish and continue to raise
20
standards. We have a very hard working and strong year 10 team. If you need to contact the school
regarding concerns or questions you may have, please contact their form tutor in the first instance.
They are often the people best equipped to either address any issues themselves, or to pass on to
the relevant member of staff.
Attendance:
A variety of forms have won the attendance award this half term. Congratulations to: TJO, ETB and
JLY. We will be monitoring our attendance figures (which are currently at 94.84%) and looking at
ways to continue to improve on this. This figure has risen since my last letter by 0.50%

I feel that it is really important that we work together to make sure OUR school serves the needs of
OUR community and OUR young people and I hope that as many of you as possible will get involved
in the life of the school. Only by working together can we make sure that the children enjoy school
and develop the skills and knowledge they need to build successful, independent, happy lives.
I thank you for your continued support and would like to take this opportunity to wish you all a
happy holiday. We return on Tuesday 22nd April at the normal school time.
Mr Tyrrell & Miss Haynes
Year 11:
Year 11 can be one of the most challenging years in school and students are under a lot of pressure
with exams, controlled assessments, revision classes and deadlines. Please support your child at
home and advise them with the following:
1. No cramming! You can't learn it all the night before the exam. Try to look over your notes and
summarize them. You could make some flashcards or spider diagrams or simply a list of key
headings, facts, dates, equations, words etc.
2. Get the right kit! Make sure you have all the equipment you will need in your bag the night before
the exams. Think about pens, pencils, rules, calculators and a bottle of water.
3. Relax! Do something to take your mind off the exam. You could watch a TV programme, have a
bath or read a book.
4. Go it alone! Hours calling and texting your friends won't help you relax. You'll probably just make
each other more stressed. Try switching off your phone.
5. Dinner time! Eat a healthy meal - too much sugar, salt or fatty foods won't help you sleep and
may make you feel uncomfortable in your exam. Drink plenty of water and avoid energy drinks!
6. Zzzzz!! You need a great night's sleep before an exam. Aim to get at least 8 hours of sleep.
Mock Exams:
We would like to congratulate the year 11s for outstanding attendance for their English and Maths
mock exams. The students took the exams seriously and kept their heads down until the end of the
day. Well done year 11s.
23
Mentoring:
The school is running a mentoring programme to support all the year 11 students with their learning.
At The Warren Comprehensive School our priorities are centred on our vision to become an
outstanding school for Learning and Teaching. As a school that is “Serious about Success” we seek to
develop methods that augment the process so that we are more efficient and effective.
The mentoring programme aims to constantly work on developing, monitoring, evaluating and
reviewing techniques at both formative and summative levels to enhance pupils’ effectiveness thus
their academic performance.
Celebration of success:
At The Warren school we value our students and pay recognition to every achievement made by
each one of them. Every Thursday morning the year 11s are in assembly celebrating success across
the whole school. Parents and Carers are invited to share the young people’s success. If you wish to
join us in celebration please contact the school with a date and we will get back to you.

Intervention
During the Easter holiday different subject areas will be running intervention sessions. All students
are expected to attend all the sessions that they have been invited to. Registers will be taken by all
staff and we will contact home if your child does not attend as a safeguarding issue. We are
appealing to all parents and carers to support the school as our staff are giving up their holiday time
to deliver these classes. We have seen a growing impact of all the extra intervention classes since
September and most of our students are pleased with the progress they are continuously making as
a result of this.

General Points:
Food and Drink:
Please also remind your child that we do not allow fizzy drinks or any kind of energy drinks in
school. Apart from having a very high sugar, salt and caffeine content, they can cause unnecessary
mess and damage to students’ books in their bags. Students are allowed to bring in water or juice
and a sensible sized snack to eat at break if desired. Family sized packets of biscuits, crisps,
doughnuts etc. and fizzy or energy drinks will be confiscated until the end of the school day.
Lateness to school :
Students arriving late to school i.e. after 8.20am will receive a one hour detention that afternoon.
We are aware that the school is on a very busy road and that this may affect your child’s punctuality
in the morning; however this cannot be used as an excuse for lateness. It is you and your child’s
responsibility to arrive on time at school.
Punctuality to lessons:
Students are given three minutes to move from one lesson to the next which is more than enough
time. Students who arrive late for their lesson (after the 3 minutes) will also receive a one hour
detention after school that same day.
Failure to complete homework and disrupting others in lessons:
Any student who disrupts the learning of others or does not complete homework will be subject to a
one hour homework detention.
Jewellery
Students are allowed to wear to wear a wrist watch and a pair of small stud earrings. Any rings,
bracelets, body piercings and additional earrings will be confiscated. These will be returned a week
later to the student or to a parent / carer at a time of mutual convenience.
Banned items: The following items are not allowed onto School premises:
Chewing gum, cigarettes, electronic cigarettes, lighters, matches, correction fluids, aerosols, mobile
phones, electronic books, laser pens and handheld musical devices, for example MP3/4 players. The
Governing Body allows all students in an emergency to contact home free of charge.
Any items which are seen during the course of the school day, will be confiscated. It will be returned
a week later to the student or to a parent / carer at a time of mutual convenience. However, some
items will only be returned to parents/carers.
Uniform:
All students are expected to wear the correct uniform at all times, blazers must be worn (and not
kept in their bags) the correct footwear must be worn at all times i.e black shoes which can be
polished. Any hoodies, baseball caps and bandanas will be confiscated and returned at the end of
the school week. All outdoor coats must be dark in colour without patterns or logos. Extremes in
appearance cosmetically such as make-up, false nails, hairstyles, unnatural hair extensions or dye are
not allowed. Governors reserve the right to send pupils home if they incorrectly dressed.
Thank you for ensuring that your child arrives in full school uniform by 8.15 for their 8.20
registration. During this time Form Tutors check equipment, planners and reading books so they are
prepared to commence their learning.
