It has been a busy two weeks at the Academy. 

On the 19th November, we celebrated Anti-Bullying week by following the national theme “Choose Respect”. The week gave all students the opportunity to shine a spotlight on the impact of bullying.  All students were asked to think about the word respect and understand how to take individual and collective action in order to create a safe and enriching environment in which to learn. During Human and Life skills lessons, they were also asked to nominate their peers who’d shown excellence in ‘Making a Difference’ to the lives of other and those within our school community.  This was celebrated through the creation of a mural led by our art club ‘Fluxus’ with help from Miss Kent. On Tuesday 20th November, students were also encouraged to wear odd socks for the day in order to symbolise the respect that we all have for the differences in all of us. Congratulations to all students who participated!

Students have been working incredibly hard in their lessons where they have completed assessments in all subjects.  I am delighted with their perseverance and focus.  As they receive their assessments back, the teachers will be congratulating them on how well they have done, and supporting them in understanding how they can continue to make progress in their learning.  Parents will receive a report at the end of term with all of their assessment marks.

We have been learning about the environment and will very soon have our own ECO representatives from each house group.  They will work with the whole school community on how we can continue to be environmentally friendly.  The students are using a re-usable water bottle every day and are now recycling any food waste from break and lunch in a separate bin.  On Friday 7Purple presented an excellent assembly on the environment for parents and students.  I was very impressed with their creativity and confidence in communicating their message to the audience.

December is set to be a busy month.

On 13th December we have our Autumn Celebration Evening where all of the students will be performing to their parents and invited guests and sharing their highlights of the term.

The whole school are going to see A Christmas Carol at The Old Vic on 19th December which promises to be an excellent treat as it has had fantastic reviews.

On 20th December, students can wear a Christmas Jumper to school and pay £1 to raise money for Save the Children.  In addition, the students can set up their own stall for a charity of their choice and sell biscuits, cakes, decorations or anything else they would like to make.

On 20th December we will also be having our Stay Safe day where students will take part in a number of workshops about how to stay safe in Modern Britain. 

Each house will also be creating hampers to deliver to local care homes.
