By taking part in Number Day 2019, Cornelius Vermuyden School helped the NSPCC raise a total of £1360.

This vital funds will help the NSPCC to protect children and prevent abuse through its projects and services, including Child line – the UK’s free, confidential 24-hour helpline and online service for children and young people – and Speak Out Stay Safe, which sees trained volunteers visiting every primary school in every community across the UK, to talk to children about abuse and where to get help if they need it.

Number day was a brilliant way to raise money for the NSPCC as it allowed us to support a worthwhile cause while having fun with maths to support children’s education. It was exciting to see the creative ideas our pupils and teachers had in celebrating this year’s event and we are counting down to next year’s event.

National association of
Able Children in England

Cornelius Vermuyden are an official member of NACE (National association of Able Children in England).

Not only does this partnership support our development of our highest achieving pupils, it supports the development of every pupil in the school. We are committed to ensuring that a high level of challenge exists in the classroom in every lesson and to help potential convert to success and happiness for our pupils. We are firm believers that "rising tides lift all ships" and that if all students have a daily diet of challenging experiences at school and beyond, then this will help support their educational and personal development as learners and as people. Yet, as our 2016 GCSE results showed, those who come to us classed as more able achieve incredible results – for example, Callum Cuthbert leaving the school with 11 A* grades is an achievement that is not just well above the national average in terms of progress and achievement, but one that should be celebrated in terms of the school's work with its high achieving pupils.

However, here at Cornelius Vermuyden, we promote the ethos that all children must be given access to a positive mindset in terms of their learning. The message is clear; all young people are capable of reaching any goal they set their mind to if they are challenged and show a positive attitude to self - improvement . Cornelius Vermuyden places challenge and the importance of a 'growth mindset' at the heart of its teaching and learning vision for our pupils and our association with NACE is supporting this commitment to all pupils at the school.
