Seven Kings High School A Specialist Science & Technology College
Ley Street, IG2 7BT, UK Ilford
+44 (0)2085-548935

The extensive programme of building has resulted in the school enjoying outstanding facilities and the learning environment throughout the school is of the highest standard.

A Specialist School
One of the advantages of our specialist school status is the excellent facilities that this has helped provide. Our pupils have access to a technologically rich environment. At the heart of this has been a substantial development in the school’s ICT infrastructure which supports learning in many subject areas.

New Learning Resource Centre
Our new Library / Learning Resource Centre recently opened and can be found in the heart of the school's site.

Media Centre
Our new media studies centre has just opened, more details will appear here soon.

Information and Communication Technology
This is a key area for the future of education. At Seven Kings we are developing exciting plans for the use of Information Technology. All subjects help develop ICT skills and there are discrete courses for older pupils. The school has eight modern, well-equipped computer rooms. Pupils are able to access their work from any of these areas and they have use of the Internet and other important new technological aids to learning. There are opportunities for pupils to access ICT facilities before, during and after school and in the holidays.

New Video Conferencing Centre
Our Conference room has now been open for a year.

Classrooms at Seven Kings are attractive and stimulating. All classrooms and corridors are carpeted and this helps to create a quiet learning environment. Pupils have access to their tutor rooms at break and at lunchtime. Our specialist areas are of exceptionally high standards and they provide the setting for high achievement.

Chess Quadrangle and Ecology Garden
At recreation times pupils can relax in these areas and even try a game of giant chess! In fine weather the picnic tables allow pupils to enjoy their lunch in the open air. The Ecology Garden attracts a host of bird and insect life. The annual arrival of ducklings is looked forward to by both pupils and staff! The development of the school aviary by the Biology Club has been a great success.

Year 7 Entry: The School Curriculum

Seven Kings exists as a place of learning for children of all abilities and aptitudes. The involvement of parents in this learning process is welcomed and valued.

The school has been designated as a government specialist school. This covers the subject areas of Mathematics, Design & Technology, Science and ICT and provides the school with additional funding to support our work in these subjects.

If you would like any further information about the curriculum please contact the school and we will be glad to help you. There is also more information on the school web site.

School subjects
Details of the subjects taught at the school and other curricular matters are given on pages 4-7 of the prospectus. The National Curriculum is fully implemented at Seven Kings and this provides the framework for the curriculum in Years 7-11.
In the Sixth Form a wide range of AS IA-level courses are taught. The school also offers vocational courses in Key Stage 4 and Post 16.

Religious Education
This is taught in accord with the agreed Redbndge curriculum policy for Religious Education devised by representatives of all the main religious faiths. This commitment to helping children understand the main principles of their own faith and the beliefs of others is fundamental to our approach to this subject.

Parents do have the right to withdraw their child from Religious Education, but this right is very rarely exercised.

Sex Education
Sex education at Seven Kings is taught by teams of staff who are trained in dealing with this sensitive topic. It is taught in a moral framework with proper regard to the rights of parents and the diversity of cultural and religious beliefs within the school commiunity.

We aim to: i. Develop awareness and understanding among pupils of their responsibility to themselves and to others.
ii Develop pupils' ability to make informed choices which recognise the physical, emotional and moral implications.
iii Safeguard pupils from potential health risks associated with sexual activity.

The sex education programme is mainly taught in the lessons of Personal and Social Education (PSE). For certain topics pupils will be taught in single sex groups. Parents do have the right to withdraw their children from these lessons if they so wish and should inform the school at the earliest opportunity if they intend to do so.

The biological processes of human reproduction and the physical changes undergone at adolescence form part of the National Curriculum science programme and parents do not have the right to withdraw children from these lessons.

Special Educational Needs
The school is committed to the principles contained in the 1993 Education Act and in the Code of Practice produced by the Department for Education and Skills.

The school will:

1. Provide support as specified to statemented pupils and attempt to meet their special needs whether arising from learning, behavioural or physical issues.
2. Assess all pupils when they enter the school to determine individual special needs among non-statemented children. It will attempt to meet those needs where it is possible to do so.
3. Ensure that all pupils with special needs gain access to a broad, balanced and rigorous curriculum.
4. Ensure that teachers are aware of the special needs of their pupils where they exist.

To achieve these aims Seven Kings maintains a team of staff skilled in working with children with special needs. They are supported by teachers from the Special Schools in the Borough.

Children with physical disabilities
Seven Kings admits pupils with major disabilities who are unable to attend their local school due to access difficulties. Such pupils are of an ability level normally found within Redbridge secondary schools and are able to cope with the demands of a mainstream school. Parents of disabled pupils who are interested in admission to the school should contact the Admissions Section of the Education Office. (Tel: 020 8478 3020).

Information to Parents
The school welcomes enquiries from parents and is happy to answer any queries that may arise. Copies of the policy statements for Religious Education, Sex Education and Special Needs are available on request for parents. The school will make a nominal charge to cover the cost of reprographics.

Curriculum complaints procedure (1988 Education Act)
Parents with a complaint about any aspect of the school curriculum should first contact the Headmaster. If the matter cannot be resolved to the satisfaction of the parent the complaint should be made to the Chair of the Governing Body.
