An impressive week has been had by all. Mr Andrews went into assemblies to announce the names of those successfully elected to our Student Academy Council. A big thank you also to the form group representatives as they will have an important job keeping their Year reps informed of ideas from each form group. I am very much looking forward to my invite along to the first Academy Council meeting!
Holding our second Parents’ Forum meeting on Monday (25/9/17) was another significant opportunity for parents to be kept informed about our improvement work. We received some useful feedback and as a result have revisited the homework strategy gently reminding our teachers to give the key stage 3 students a week to complete each task they are set in the different subjects. The last thing we want is our students worrying about falling behind or being in danger of receiving detentions.
You will also notice that we have uploaded further information about the new attainment bands and assessment calendar in the section to the left of this Blog ‘Academy Improvement Work’. We hope you find these useful.
We ended the week today with a highly successful MacMillan’s Coffee Morning/Afternoon event organised and led by SUA6. Our sixth formers did a fantastic job and we look forward to hearing how much money was raised.
