Who to speak to
All of our staff are committed to giving their very best to our students. We know how important strong and positive relationships between staff and students are in order for them to work together to achieve their best.
Pastoral and Behaviour
Students’ behaviour, safety and welfare are supported through dedicated Heads of Year and Associate Heads of Year. Along with the form tutor, the Year teams are the main contact point for parents/carers.
Progress and Attainment
Heads of Departments are responsible for the progress and attainment of students within their subjects. They work closely with both the Leadership Team and the Heads of Year to make sure all students are on track to succeed.
This is available for all those who need it, and we work on a student by student basis. We have a Learning Support team who are led by the Special Educational Needs Coordinator (SENDCo), who work specifically with our SEND and English as an Additional Language (EAL) students. Academic mentors are available to support with interventions and homework support and Higher Level Teaching Assistants also offer extra support to learning programmes designed to help students’ literacy and numeracy skills.
Attendance and Safeguarding
We have two Attendance Officers and Safeguarding Officers, they work with our students to make sure they come to school every day and feel safe. They support students and families in making sure they have everything they need to attend school every day. Posters are displayed around the Academy which explain to our students, staff and any visitors, who these important people are.
