Standards & Expectations – Module 4

Dear Parents/Carers,

I am writing to you with a few updates regarding this term so far. The vast majority of our students have returned to school since the February break with a really positive attitude and punctuality/attendance is continually improving. I would like to thank our parents and families for their ongoing support with attendance and punctuality.

We have also seen 12,807 positive rewards being recorded on our internal system Bromcom since our return this term, with some of the highest recognition points being awarded to students who have achieved 100% weekly attendance rewards and have produced outstanding work. This is a clear reflection of the determination of our students to make the most of being back in the classroom, and working with their peers and friends.

Our Year 11 and 13 students have been working incredibly hard on their internal mock examinations and it has been wonderful to see the dedication and efforts they have been putting in. The attendance at interventions is continually increasing and students are working hard to achieve their target grades in the summer term.

I also wanted to inform our parents that the uniform standards have been exceptional throughout the academy and that we thank you for your support in continuing to set high expectations. We would like to take this opportunity as a reminder of our key expectations:

Uniform Expectations

  • Coats are not allowed to be worn in the school building.
  • Hoodies are banned from the site and will also be confiscated from students if worn.
  • Students should only wear one pair of small gold or silver studded earrings to school, no facial piercings such as nose studs, bracelets or necklaces.
  • Extreme haircuts are prohibited – students should not have a haircut below a grade 1 (no skin fades or 0.5 grade).
  • Body piercing is prohibited
  • Fake tan is prohibited
  • False nails and painted nails are prohibited.
  • Knee length socks are not permitted as part of the uniform policy.
  • We also do not allow any form of eyelash extensions or fake eyelashes as part of our uniform policy.
  • If you would like a more detailed reminder of the uniform expectations please view them on the academy website.
  • Failure to follow the schools’ uniform rules and hand over any infringing items will result in a 30 minute same day detention.

As always If you have any questions or concerns then please contact the school through our pastoral emails or phone lines.

Thank you for your continued support.

Yours faithfully,

Miss J Lindsay
