On behalf of the REBRANDED STAFF at CALCULUS Comprehensive Schools, I am happy to welcome you to the 2022/2023 Academic year! We are therefore looking forward to a productive partnership with you to ensure our children can achieve their highest potential. We recognized that to be successful in school, our children need support from both home and school. We know a strong partnership with you will make a significant difference in your child’s education. As partners, we share the responsibility for our children’s success and want you to know that we will do our very best to carry out our responsibilities.
Our theme for this year is: TO DO MORE, ACT MORE. We ask that your guide and support the child’s learning by ensuring that he/she:
√ Attends school daily and arrives on time, ready for the day’s learning experience.
√ Completes all HOMEWORK given by teachers.
√ Reads daily to develop a love for READING and to improve LITERACY SKILLS.
√ Shares school experiences with you so that you are aware of his/her school life.
√ Informs you if he/she needs additional support in any area or subject.
√ Knows that you expect him/her to succeed in school and go on to college/university.
We are happy to inform you about the significant success in the released results of the 2022 WAEC and JAMB with 75% success. We hope for 100% next Academic Year. This came because of numerous interventions, teamwork, and diligence from the staff, parents and the concern students. It is hoped that this standard will not only be maintained and improved upon as we promote and celebrate excellence through determination and hard work.
There are many discussions about the need for education to be different and it sometimes feels as if we are living in an echo chamber with everyone agreeing that change needs to happen. We have introduced more interesting and organized teaching pedagogies to ensure we provide Qualitative Teaching. Some of the changes are:
√ Guided Reading, which is separated from our Literacy Hour.
√ Achieving Deep Learning in all subjects across the school.
√ Introduction to Maths Mastery in the Primary and Secondary Department.
√ Improved observation and assessment in Early Years.
√ Generate children’s/ students’ interest in Mathematics in both Primary and Secondary.
√ Promote excellent writing and reading skills across Early Years in both Primary and Secondary.
√ We are introducing SPaG (Spelling Punctuation and Grammar) as part of our English Lessons.
√ Use of Emotional Intelligence in supporting the welfare of children.
√ A much more consistent approach to our curriculum plans.
√ ‘Every Child agenda and support for children with learning difficulties.
√ A keen sense of discipline will be inculcated in all children and staff.
√ Weekly monitoring of children’s work throughout the school.
We will be helping students to gain ADMISSION into top universities such as the University of Ilorin, Kwara State University, the University of Ibadan, the University of Lagos, the University of Benin and other universities across the nation.
We have recruited some experienced and outstanding teachers to join our team.
There has been an amendment to some of our policies. This will be discussed at the orientation and after, all saved on the website. Please ensure to read all policies on the Website and adhere to them.
We complement our academic curriculum with our interesting Co-Curricular Activities. These help our children to be well-rounded and well-grounded. Please ensure that your child/ children sign up for a co-curricular activity.
The school has an improved behavior management system, and this is supposed to help the children to show excellent attitudes toward learning and other people.
Calculus Comprehensive Schools is seriously moving into Inquiry-Based Learning in which Assessment for Learning plays an integral role. This will equip our children with an excellent sense of reasoning and high confidence.
Honestly, significant positive changes will be taking place this academic year and some of these changes will be expatriated at the Parents’ Orientation and Parents’ Coffee Mornings.
Please do not hesitate to contact or book an appointment to see the School Principal if you wish to discuss any issues or challenges regarding your child. We encourage you to visit our school’s website (calculusschools.com).
I feel privileged to be a part of this school family. We thank you for your support and look forward to meeting you as from 19th September, 2022.
Yours in Calculus,
Mr. O. S. Ogunleye
