The Partnership

We do our best to support students and their families to ensure excellent outcomes for all of our students.

The House System

We believe in providing a personalised, challenging curriculum.  Every student has a named member of staff who takes personal responsibility for them and makes sure they are progressing well, academically and socially.

There is also be a House System which gives students a sense of belonging and rewards them for academic achievement, good attendance and positive contributions to Academy life.

If you have a concern, you are welcome to contact your child's Head of House at any time, regarding Academic or Pastoral concerns. 

 

Student Learning

The Academy is dedicated to Academic rigour and achievement. Therefore, we send home a review once term, to reflect on student progress. If you wish to discuss this further, you are welcome to contact your child's subject teacher or tutor, by calling the main reception on 0203 747 6060.

Parent Consultation Evenings, to discuss achievement with class teachers, are a key part of the Academy year. In order to support parents we have prepared the following guidance:

Guide to Parent Consultation Evenings

What information will I be given at the meeting?

  • Latest progress information for your child from each of their subjects
  • A booklet to record the details and key points from your meeting with each area
  • Strengths and weaknesses in a particular curriculum area
  • If your child contributes to learning opportunities in the lessons
  • If homework is being completed and handed in
  • An update on your child’s behaviour for learning and effort in lessons

Top tips for making the most out of the evening

  1. Prepare by asking your child the following questions before the evening:
     • Which subjects are you making the most progress in and why?
     • Which subjects do you feel are your weakest and why?
     • Is there anything in particular you would like to discuss with your teacher?
     
  2. Positive communication with the teacher is key.  Don’t be reluctant to ask questions, especially as teachers can use a lot of acronyms and ‘teacher’ phrases.  Don’t be fearful of hearing that your child is not fulfilling their potential.   Ask positive questions such as, ‘how can I help my child?’  It is also important that you share any information with us that you think might be impacting on their learning or behaviour.
     
  3. Identify their strengths and weaknesses within each subject they are taught. Ask questions about their progress towards their final exam targets.  How much progress do the teachers expect your child to make by the end of the year? Are they struggling with exam technique or ways to revise?  Do they find particular topics or skills more difficult than others?
     
  4. Implement the strategies the teacher suggests will help your child to make more progress.  It is helpful to sit down with your child after the event and clarify with them, that they understand what was said during the evening.  If a teacher suggests something that you can’t support at home, don’t be afraid to ask for that support in school.  We are here to help as much as we can.
     
  5. Be Open about any poor behaviour for learning.  If your child is mis-behaving, ask the teacher why they think this might be the case.  Then look for patterns, is it only in one subject area or a few?  Encourage your child to reflect on why they are mis-behaving in certain areas and what they can do to change their behaviour
     
  6. Talk to the Academy’s Leadership Group and also the Directors of Learning.  They are always available throughout the evening to answer any discuss or address your concerns.  There is also always a member of the SEN team present and available to discuss your child’s needs
     
  7. See the big picture!  Help your child to see how each subject relates to real life. Can they address areas of weakness in a more creative way?  e.g. reading for pleasure or applying maths skills at home
     
  8. Each slot can only be five minutes long. Please make the most of your slot.
