The first term is drawing to an end and I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your positive support during the Autumn Term. The Academy has made progress in many areas, especially in Teaching and Learning, improving punctuality and Behaviour for Learning. We must ensure that we continue to sustain these improvements and from January it will be time to build on our successes and intensely focus on improving the quality of progress and achievement for every student.
The Academy will close for the Christmas holiday at midday on Friday 19th December. Students who are entitled to a Free School Meal can collect a packed lunch from the catering team on the way out of the Academy. Students are asked to inform their Year Manager that they require a packed lunch no later than Wednesday 17th December 2014.
The Academy will reopen on Tuesday 6th January 2015 at 7:30am. Students are welcome to arrive from 7:30am where they can take advantage of the free breakfast on offer. Students are expected to be in their Learning Tutor rooms at 8:30am. Any student arriving after this time will be marked late and there will be a series of escalating consequences for persistent lateness.
Thank you for your continued support and I wish you and your family a very Happy Christmas and best wishes for the New Year.
Mr P Wilson
