Pupils’ Big Takeover

Well done to the Year 11 pupils who took part in this year’s Wandsworth Big Take Over which puts young people into decision-making challenges and encourages staff at the council to hear their views. The pupils from Nightingale Community Academy spent the day working alongside Nick Pendry, Assistant Director of Wandsworth Children’s Services and discussed issues around social care and policing.

Principal Andre Bailey said, “The Big Take Over is critically important that boys, particularly boys in this kind of environment (NAC), get the opportunity to be normal; to do stuff that children in mainstream schools are doing, to do things that provide opportunities for them to see and experience adults in a way they otherwise would not.”

One of the pupils involved it the day said, “I like discussing about how we can help other people’s bad situations.”

The principal and leadership team, well supported by the Orchard Hill College and Academy Trust, have provided strong leadership, which has had a positive impact on the school’s effectiveness. As a result, there have been improvements in all areas, most noticeably in pupils’ behaviour and attitudes, the curriculum and in the wider opportunities for pupils.
