I hope you have all had a relaxing and productive half term break and I welcome our students back into school.
This morning we have issued home school agreements to all students in year 7 to 10 and kindly ask that all parents/ carers sign these and return them by the end of this week. These agreements outline what the Academy will do for your child, what we expect the students to do and what we need home to do, in order that together we create the optimum learning environment in which your child can thrive. You can download a copy here.
It is a well-known fact that students achieve so much more when a supportive three way relationship is established; between the student, those at home and the school.
The agreement makes it quite clear that students are welcome to bring mobile devices into the Academy. There may even be times when teachers will utilise these devices to support students’ learning, however, they must not be used to access social media sites whilst your child is in school.
We do have a lot of information on our website about how to be internet safe. If you would like any extra help or support with this, or have any particular concerns, please contact the school and our Safer Schools Officer will be delighted to assist you.
We look forward to a really productive half term, with all students achieving their best and respecting themselves as professional learners.
