Dear Parents/Carers

July 19th, 2019|

I have today issued all students with a letter to inform you of some key dates and information as we break for the summer and in preparation for the next academic year.

I would like to thank all the parents and carers who attended the behaviour information meetings at which I, with my colleague Mr Rashid, responded to your questions and queries. I would also like to thank those parents/ carers who have taken the time to contact the Academy with their support for the changes we outlined and with constructive suggestions. The new policy has already seen a significant improvement in the behaviour of our students and has enabled our teachers to focus more effectively on delivering outstanding lessons to all our students.

I would also like to thank you for your continued support in ensuring our uniform standards are maintained at the highest level. Please ensure that on return winter coats are compliant with our policy and that all students have a suitable school bag and a full set of the required equipment.

May I ask please that the actions required regarding informing the Academy of emergency contact details for all students are completed as soon as is possible (Information and instructions are given on the reverse of my letter).

The full letter is posted on the Academy website in the Letters Home section. Further information will be posted as and when required.

From all at the Academy we wish everyone a safe, enjoyable and refreshing summer break.
