Welcome to the Parents' area where you will find a full range of information that will keep you fully informed about Academy life, as well as our expectations and practice.

The Academy expects parents and carers to play a full and responsible part in supporting their child’s journey through the Academy.

High attendance at the Academy is absolutely vital. All the evidence about making the very best progress is linked to high attendance.

The Academy day starts at 8.25 a.m. and we expect students to be here by that time, in full uniform, and ready to learn. If your child cannot be in school you should call the Academy as early as you can on 01296 428551 and press Option 1 to report an absence.

We will take the strongest of actions against those who do not attend the Academy including using the local authority to support our sanctions. See more details in our Attendance Policy here.

We are very proud of our students and the uniform they wear. Our students always receive positive comments for their smart appearance when they represent the Academy, however we need to ensure this message is remembered at all times.

The Academy will follow its sanction policy for breaches of uniform rules and this can lead to serious penalties. All students must wear the correct uniform at all times, details of which can be found here.
