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 will be kept as small as possible 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.

Our Learning Ethos

Students’ progress in learning will be accelerated and tracked through a unique programme based around the development of an Academy Ethos that builds Resilience, Reflectiveness, Resourcefulness and Reciprocity in all of our students.

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 will be expected to follow the code of conduct and safety rules which are summarised in the student planners. 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.
