As Deputy Principals, we are delighted to recognise the achievement of our Principal, Andrew Fowler, who has recently been awarded the degree of Doctor of Philosophy by Durham University. At the start of this term, Mr Fowler has therefore become Dr Fowler. This change is reflected on the signs at the school entrance and on our new letterhead.

As you might expect, Dr Fowler’s research has been in education, specifically in finding out from students what makes examination questions in mathematics difficult for them. While there has been a substantial amount of research previously into difficulty in examination questions, almost all of this has been from the viewpoint of examiners: very few studies have sought out and analysed students’ views, and none have given students’ own words the prominence that Dr Fowler has.

Hearing the voices of students is vital for improving our understanding of teaching and learning. It is also a matter of fairness and social justice, values that have informed our Principal’s whole approach to education here at Lord Lawson. His insights into student voice and into teaching and learning have already helped to inform staff training and transform the education of children at this school. To have achieved such a high level of academic scholarship whilst also improving a large secondary school and steering our community through COVID shows impressive resilience! We are proud to recognise the example of hard work and scholarship that Dr Fowler has set us all.

Joe Dicocco and Ian Cooper, Deputy Principals

Further to the messages from Mr Fowler and Mr Rayner in recent Parent Bulletins, I would like to take this opportunity to update parents and carers about the current situation regarding the scholars’ and public service buses.

Strike action looks likely to go on for the foreseeable future, but Go North East are continuing to ensure that our scholars’ buses are running, although this week we have experienced some delays.  These delays were caused by striking Go North East staff picketing outside the bus depots, delaying bus departures.  Unfortunately we do not receive ‘real time’ updates from the company so we do not always have this information to give to you, even if you contact school.  If we are pre-notified of any delays, this information will appear on our website or on our social media pages.

Public bus services still pose an issue, for both students and staff, and we thank those parents and carers who have made alternative transport arrangements for their child, ensuring they arrive at school safely.  A number of students are being collected by school staff in our mini bus.

As the weather is currently not the best, cold and wet, can I please ask you to ensure your child comes to school dressed appropriately, with a waterproof coat, especially if they are waiting for a bus that may be delayed.

Thank you for your continued patience and support.

Mr I Cooper

Deputy Principal

Further to our message earlier this week, and Mr Fowler’s note in the Parent Bulletin, we have just been advised by Nexus that Go North East will be unable to guarantee the scholars’ services for a number of schools from Monday 16 October 2023 until Friday 20 October 2023.  Unfortunately, the 873 afternoon only service from Lord Lawson is one of those affected.

We ask that parents and carers of students who use the 873 service make arrangements to ensure their children have alternative transport home next week.

As Mr Fowler has already asked in his letter in the Parent Bulletin, we appeal to any parent or carer who may be collecting their children and has space in their car to offer transport to other Lord Lawson students who may live in your neighbourhood. Your child may know someone who has difficulty getting to or from school next week, and this added complication will have an impact on even more students.

Saturday 14 October sees the beginning of the second week of industrial action by the bus company Go North East, the last day of which is Friday 20 October

We have spoken to Nexus and Go North East who have confirmed today that all of the scholars’ services will be running.  However, public services will be significantly impacted.  Therefore, we ask parents and carers of students who are potentially affected to make alternative transport arrangements where possible if their child uses public transport, as there will be no skeleton services in operation.

For holders of Go North East Season tickets (weekly, monthly, annual passes) please note these will be accepted on Tyne and Wear Metro services during the strike periods; please show staff on the Metro your pass to travel.

If your child usually travels to school by car, then please allow additional time for your journey as the roads will be busier than normal.

Academy staff are aware of the situation and will make appropriate allowances for any students who may arrive slightly later than normal as a result of the strikes.
