“You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on a stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.”
(Matthew 5:14-16 NIV) 

The Governors and staff of Lowton Church of England High School are committed to the provision of a high quality education in a Christian context. We aim to provide a school where we can live out our ethos of Caring, Learning and Succeeding on a daily basis and let our light shine. At the heart of the commitment is the notion of the uniqueness and infinite worth of the individual, that every person is valuable in the eyes of God and that they are, indeed, the light of the world.

Lessons in the Limelight - PE with Miss Hill

In lessons this week Year 9 have been looking at the low serve in badminton. Students started off by recapping the skill by looking over the teaching points on the A3 sheet on their net before aiming for a well-positioned mat. Following this each pair played a game of battleships where they aimed to ‘sink’ their opponents ships by hitting them. This got very competitive! The girls improved their low serve during the lesson which is great news as a strong low serve is a great skill for them to have in their armoury throughout the rest of the unit.

Lessons in the Limelight - PE with Miss Hill

Our Year 7 students have been experiencing a taste of the different sports that we cover in PE at Lowton in their first few lessons. Here are Miss Hill’s classes 7A and 7C who have been trying out badminton, handball, gymnastics and athletics.

In their badminton lesson the students began by throwing the shuttle, using a technique that would mimic important shots such as the underarm serve and the overhead clear for when a racket was introduced. After some practice the students moved onto using a racket and all students were able to transfer their shot actions successfully. We are going to have some fantastic badminton players!

Our new school routines are now embedded throughout the school.

The first of these routines is that each class lines up sensibly on their designated classroom spot before entering the classroom. This allows for a quick, focused start.

We also now have a one way system in place which keeps our students moving and prevents them from crossing paths. In addition to this, each year group currently have their own designated year group zone to use at break and lunch.

Finally, we have introduced regular hand washing with students using the new sinks upon entry to school, before lunch time and following the school day. This is in addition to the use of hand sanitiser before each lesson.
