Home school agreement

We are determined to create an inclusive culture of learning where all children will be challenged in their thinking, to achieve to the best of their abilities and strive to become lifelong learners.

We will empower our students to become respected citizens to enable them to make valuable contributions locally and globally. This can be achieved when all staff, parents and students understand their responsibilities and work together towards the same goals, set out below in our home/school agreement.

The Academy

  • provide a safe and orderly environment in which students can learn, feel secure and valued as individuals
  • provide a broad and balanced curriculum
  • encourage all students to do their best and to have a pride in achievement
