The Mayor of Rotherham joined 5.4 students in a PSHE lesson this week.
Students interviewed Madam Mayor about issues in Rotherham around tolerance and respect.
The KS5 group designed 6 posters to raise the profile and reputation of Rotherham.
Madam Mayor was really impressed and was keen to promote the positive things that are happening in the town.
Students asked some excellent questions and thoroughly enjoyed the visitors company.

Students at Newman Special School worked with a local business owner to show local employers the unique skills they have to offer the labour market. The students showcased their skills at Newman’s end of term ‘Enterprise Skills Fair’.
Students from Key Stage 1 to Key Stage 5 were involved in different ways, including making and selling hand crafted products, arranging games and serving refreshments to parents, carers and siblings. Students produced their own marketing, considered everyone’s role, planned their stall and displays and handled money at the event. Engagement and independence skills were at the top of the agenda on the day while staff took a step back and let students lead wherever possible. Everyone who attended was very impressed and these are just a couple of comments made by parents/carers – Carole said 'There is a wonderful array of handmade goods. I was impressed with a student using his talker to sell candles' and Marie commented upon how 'Lovely and well set out the event was and everyone looked happy' She went on to say that 'this event shows what the kids are capable of'.
New Head Teacher - By Millie
Mr Silvester worked at North Ridge School, Doncaster before Newman School. He enjoyed school as a child but he went to an all boys school and would have liked it to be a mixed school. His favourite subject at school was History. When asked his first impression of Newman School he said “fantastic”. He wants more trips, more things for the website and to make reception look better. Mr Silvester didn’t think he would be a head teacher when he was a child. He has only wanted to be a head teacher for the last few years.
