Parental Support

Pupils should come “ready to learn” and equipped for the school day with pens, pencils and a ruler, their planner and a reading book.  Planners are provided by the school on the pupils first day.

Punctuality and high attendance are strongly valued by the academy as they prepare the pupils for their future ventures both academically and in the world of work; we value our parents support in ensuring pupils arrive at school on time and is rarely absent.  Results show that pupils with a high level of absence achieve lower GCSE grades than their peers; please contact your child’s Head of Year or tutor if you are concerned about your child’s attendance.
