Welcome to this special section of the website written for parents and carers.
We are delighted that you have chosen the Academy for your child and we will do all we can to give your child the skills and qualifications they need to set them on their path to success.
To ensure that you are in the picture about your child’s time at the Academy, you can log on to our learning platform, Moodle, to check what homework has been set, your child’ s attendance and punctuality and conduct points.
If you have a query about your child's education or wellbeing, please contact your child's tutor, who is a teacher, or the Assistant Head of Year, who does not have a teaching commitment and may be more available by phone during the school day. For contact details of Assistant Heads of Year please click on the ‘Contact Us' link. We are always happy to talk about any concerns you may have that may affect your child's learning.
All our teaching staff can be contacted directly by email using the format firstname.lastname@example.org For example, to email Mr A. Smith use email@example.com
A Parents' Forum has been established and we hope that you might like to get involved. The group provides valuable feedback on how the Academy is doing and how we could do better. The notes from Parents' Group meetings can be found under 'Useful Information' on the right hand side of this page. For more details about the group please email firstname.lastname@example.org
For new parents and prospective parents, please see our Admissions Policies located in the policies section.
Ofsted have an initiative, Parent View, aimed at parents to give feedback on their child’s school. Parent View asks for your opinion on 12 aspects from the quality of teaching, to dealing with bullying and poor behaviour. By sharing your views, you’ll be helping the Academy to improve.
The Academy has been recognised for its outstanding work to engage parents in their children's learning. In September 2010 the Academy received the Parental Engagement Quality Standard (PEQS) which was developed by the Specialist Schools and Academies Trust (SSAT) to formally recognise the important work schools do with their parent community and to encourage other schools to develop their own activities in this area.
