  • Students from St Martin’s school crowned best company at Young Enterprise Welsh Final

    Published 10/06/21

    Year 12 Students from St Martin’s School have been crowned Best Overall Company at the Young Enterprise Welsh Final 2021. The final (held digitally this year instead of in person due to Covid-19), on Wednesday, 26 May, celebrated the achievements of students who have set up and run a company over the academic year as part of the Young Enterprise Company Programme. The programme allowed our students to set up a company of their choosing; making all the decisions about their business, from deciding the company name and product, to creating a business plan, managing their finances and selling their products – despite challenging conditions due to Covid-19.  

    Our winning team, ‘New Leaf Sustainability’, created and sold sustainable bamboo plant pots that can be recycled as drinking cups.  Joshua Webb, Sales Director for the company, said: “‘Overall, taking part in Young Enterprise has been exceptionally enjoyable. The different elements involved in the competition enabled me to ascertain and develop many unique skills which can be used in day-to-day life. I am looking forward to the UK final , and believe that New Leaf Sustainable’s recent success was warranted due to the team’s dedication and hard work. The experience so far has been thought provoking. Young Enterprise has replicated business-like scenarios which will undoubtedly help those with such career ambitions in the future!” - Josh, we could not have said it better!

    Their resilience and determination has been inspiring to all. Boys, you have been a credit to yourselves, the school, and we are all extremely proud of you! Good Luck for the UK finals!

  • Enhanced Wellbeing Support

    Published 10/06/21

    The return to school after the disruption and uncertainty of Covid-19 national lock downs has been difficult for many students. Recognising this, St Martin's School has invested heavily in enhancing its already effective wellbeing support. The Wellbeing Team, led by ALNCo Kate Richards, has increased its provision for emotional literacy support to complement its already comprehensive support package. The school currently employs a Registered Nurse, Sara Cox, who has begun group and 1-to-1 sessions to ensure students get the targeted support they need. Moreover, a Mental Health Support Assistant has been newly appointed. Jordan Storey is working with students to make the transition back into school life as smooth as possible.  Finally, the school acknowledged the need for more intensive support for key students and arranged with Caerphilly County Borough Council for a team of six Assistant Educational Psychologists and a Cognitive Behavioural Therapy specialist to visit school regularly to work with these students. St Martin's is committed to ensuring that its students' emotional wellbeing is nurtured as well as their academic progress.
