Anomaly has had the pleasure of working with the Hammersmith Academy to constantly improve their existing digital infrastructure and help towards their specialisms in Creative and Digital Media and IT. Like most schools, Hammersmith are continuously pushing out digital topics at their school. In addition to constantly promoting digital topics, Hammersmith take great pride on the ability to display students’ work and accomplishments all around their school. Hammersmith are currently sporting one of our 55″ freestanding external screens. The screen is situated so students, parents and visitors can see students work. Andrew Anderson, Communications Officer at Hammersmith Academy said: “At Hammersmith Academy we are keen to display our students’ work and accomplishments in a manner worthy of our specialism – information technology and creative & digital media. With Anomaly we have been able to realise this, using their Anomaly Content Manager system to have a revolving and easy to update “HATV” channel.” On the topic of updating the screen on-the-go, Andrew said: “Through digital technology our teachers are able to upload photos and videos of day to day activity, as well as news about the various impressive achievements and successes attained by our students every week. I can quickly download photos from our various social media channels and upload these to HATV quickly and easily. This means that students can see their progress celebrated in school in real time. We also have an impressive display at the front of the school building, so that parents and visitors are greeted with an impactful visual of life at HA before they walk through the door.

Understanding stress can be very beneficial to dealing with stress. Stress is your body’s way of responding to any kind of demand or threat. When you feel threatened, your nervous system responds by releasing a flood of stress hormones, including adrenaline, which rouse the body for emergency action. Your heart pounds faster, muscles tighten, blood pressure rises, breath quickens, and your senses become sharper. These physical changes increase your strength and stamina, speed your reaction time, and enhance your focus. Organise your working environment School and college can be stressful, but there are simple things you can do to manage and reduce your stress. Creating a positive working environment can help a lot. Whether you’re a teacher or a student, having a good working environment can be key to reducing stress levels. Create a regular schedule; know what you will be doing on each day and when you will be doing it. Having a positive working space can help you plan ahead. It can even be simple things like packing your bag the night before and knowing what you’re wearing in the morning can really help to reduce stress. Set aside time in your day to do assignments and other miscellaneous tasks. Once you have things planned, your stress levels will reduce dramatically. It’s also important to clear out any clutter from your revision space, desk or anywhere where you might be planning on doing any work. Just sitting in a cluttered room can create stress. Try to keep a tidy work space.

BBC article, Mr Cameron was quoted: “Parents have a great role to play, but no school should think that simply by having parent governors you’ve solved the problem about how to engage with parents.” So how can schools improve engagement between themselves and parents? Anomaly screens It has been proven that Anomaly screens do in fact improve parental engagement. Having Anomaly screens positioned in key areas such as where parents drop off their children, makes interacting with parents a simple task. Not only do we have a content library full of content that pupils can enjoy, we also have content that is designed for parents. Our schools can time this content to play at the end of the school day, to catch parents picking up their children. As well as this, our screens also have the ability to display key messages for parents/visitors to your schools to enjoy. Update messages from a computer or your tablet or smart phone with ease and let parents know what’s happening around your school. Anomaly Film In addition to Anomaly screens, we also offer various different services. One of which being Anomaly Film. Anomaly Film is a portable green screen studio which allows pupils and teachers to produce high quality films in relation to the current curriculum. Anomaly Film encourages students to make use of green screen technology in the classroom. Combining a film kit with green screen technology, Anomaly Film encapsulates students and works towards improving achievement and attentiveness. Using both Anomaly Film and Anomaly screens together, we make it possible for schools to showcase pupils work to parents – parents are constantly in the loop with what their child is learning in school.

Following the recent news to turns all schools in the UK into academies, there has been certain doubts regarding the communication between schools and parents – with Anomaly services this will never be a problem. There has been a mixed reaction from teachers and parents all over the UK after David Cameron announced plans for all schools to become academies by 2020. In recent weeks the plans have come under a bit of fire. One main concern from teachers and parents is that the plans will potentially reduce parental engagement in schools, claims which David Cameron has passionately denied. Following a recent
Anomaly recently had the pleasure of working with South End to improve their existing digital infrastructure. Like most schools, South End is constantly promoting e-safety at their school – this is when they approached us to see how we could help. After spending the day with our trainer, Tim, South End produced a professional video to promote the subject. The video was scripted, acted and created by the pupils of South End and after tackling this difficult subject in such a creative way, the pupils now have a firm understanding of E-safety. Georgie Lewis, Computer Expert at South End Junior School said: “Tim came for the day and spent it with ten children, who are the digital ambassadors. They independently drafted out a script in their own time together and were ready to start filming on the day with Tim.” On the topic of E-safety, Georgie said: “The message the children were given as a brief for them to then have free reign on what ‘E-Safety’ was and how we could promote it further in our school. Tim was very welcoming and warm towards the children and they were very at ease around him. He explained all the equipment and the timetable of the day to them clearly. We loved our day with him and wouldn’t hesitate to ask for him when we have our next filming day with Anomaly.” Below you will be able to find the video that South End Junior School created. We think it’s brilliant and promotes e-safety in a very positive light.
