16.09.2019 Llanwern High School Achieves the Careers Wales Mark

Dear Mrs Jarvis

On behalf of Careers Wales, I would like to offer my congratulations to you and your colleagues on achieving the Careers Wales Mark.

Having processes in place that enable staff to continually review and improve provision relating to the requirements of the Careers and the Work of Work framework, results in an enriched learning experience for your learners.

I’m sure you would agree that in this difficult economic climate it is more important than ever to provide engaging and informative career and work related education programmes for all learners, equipping them with career management skills and preparing them  to enter the world of work.  As well as the long-term benefits to learners’  future lives, there is evidence that good career guidance also bring benefits in the shorter term, while learners are still at school.  These benefits include better motivation once learners have clear goals for future study and careers, leading to higher self-esteem, higher attainment and reduced drop-out rates.

Once again congratulations on achieving the award.  We look forward to supporting you with further development work in the future.

Yours sincerely

Nikki Lawrence
Chief Executive Careers Wales

Parent GCSE class
03.09.2019 Parent / Carer GCSEs in English Language and/or GCSE Mathematics

We are very pleased to be able to offer the parents/carers of Llanwern High School the chance to study for GCSEs in English Language and/or GCSE Mathematics.  This will involve a weekly one-hour lesson (as well as some homework, of course!) during the school day, as well as sitting the examinations in June.

There would be no cost for the tuition.  The only expense would be the cost of the exam entry (approximately £20 per qualification) which is subsidised by Newport City Homes (and would not need to be paid until January).

Registration will take place on Monday 9th September.

Newport County
18.10.2018 Reading FC v Newport County AFC
Newport made the long journey to take on Reading with both teams sitting at the top end of the league table. The first half started off reasonably even with very few clear cut chances created. After 20 minutes County began to dominate proceedings and took the lead when Ben Williams delivered a pin point cross from the right hand side for Luke Edgell to volley into the roof of the net.
The second period started quite scrappy in which the bobbly pitch played a big factor. On 56 minutes a nicely waited pass from Ivan Mohammed found Joseph Baston who slotted the ball into the bottom left corner to double Newport’s lead. 10 minutes later it was 3-0 when Jake Clark played a quick combination with Josh Williams to calmly strike the ball past the outstretched goalkeeper. County soon added another when Jacob Perella worked extremely hard to regain possession of the ball and had the composure to find Luke Edgell who finished very well into the top corner to double his tally. Reading late on had a few half chances to get a goal back but never really made goalkeeper Brandon Powell work. In injury time Max Holley clipped a accurate ball into the box for Ivan Mohammed to head in to seal a 5-0 win.
Best wishes to Jermaine and his players for the rest of the season. We look forward to the return fixture at Llanwern High School.
