Scholarly Attitudes

Dear Parents/Carers

As you are aware, the Academy is developing ongoing communication methods with parents to support students in adopting Scholarly attitudes to learning.

The SchoolCal App communicates day to day events, ‘Show My Homework’ ensures families are fully informed of any homework set, whilst student grades and praise logs are emailed home.

Following parental feedback and advice, the Academy will be trialling behaviour log notifications after half term. These will be sent on the evening of each day and parents will receive an email informing them that their child has received a behaviour log during that day.

Should you have any further suggestions and/or feedback during this trial, please email [email protected] to help us improve/refine strategies further.

Students will return after half term at 8:45 am on Tuesday 31st October 2017Please note Year 7 students will finish at 3:10 pm with all other Year Groups from Tuesday 31st October onwards.

I would like to wish you all a safe and enjoyable half term.

Kindest regards

T.H.L Ellis
