A week of Open Mornings (from 9/10/17) saw more families come to look around our academy whilst it was 'in action'! Some really positive feedback has been received. Thank you.

On Wednesday we held two Settling In Parents' Evenings for our new Year 7 and Year 12 students. It was lovely to see the events so well attended. Thank you to families and staff for their hard work.

With one week to go we all can not believe how quickly this half term has flown by!

The SUA Open Evening was well attended with lots of positive feedback and more families came along to visit us on Saturday morning. Student helpers were absolutely brilliant ambassadors for the academy. We hope to get more visitors along during the Open Mornings, starting on Monday 9th October, to see us in action.

Special thanks go to the history team as they were joined by 39 Year 11 students for extra lessons this weekend. Amazing commitments being made by Team SUA! Keep up the great work everyone.

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.

You can see that we have had our Homepage redesigned adding clear links to our Academy Improvement Work and this Blog. I am really looking forward to being able to share our good work on a weekly basis. This Blog will give me the chance to inform you of the positive contributions being made by our students and staff.
As this week begins we are all looking forward to the Student Council election results being announced and our first Parents' Forum Meeting of the academic year later on this evening (25/9/17). I hope to see as many of our parents in attendance as possible, 6-7pm, you are all welcome.
I hope everyone has a productive week here at Team SUA!
