Academic & Faculty Structure

Academic Structure

We believe in providing a personalised, challenging curriculum. Whether a student is struggling, needs to be stretched or is somewhere in the middle, we will always work to meet their needs. Parents and carers will be kept closely informed about their son/daughter’s progress, with reports being sent home every six weeks.

Class sizes are kept small and we will have a firm emphasis on good behaviour so that the environment we provide is calm and orderly. The quality and calibre of the teacher training and curriculum support provided by the Harris Federation is frequently recognised and praised by Ofsted.

Celebrating Achievements and Sanctions

In order for students to reach high standards as well as enjoy their education, a calm, purposeful environment is essential. This is the case both inside and outside the classroom. Students are expected to follow the code of conduct and safety rules. An Academy ethos of encouragement is central to the promotion of positive learning behaviour and our Academy celebrating achievement structure recognises this. Sanctions are used to respond to poor learning behaviour, these are applied consistently, giving students opportunities to de-escalate sanctions at each stage.
