The Academy prides itself on the support available to all students throughout their school life. This includes extensive pastoral support and additional bespoke interventions from Student Support.
Within each House there are eight tutor groups. Each tutor group is made up of students from a single year group. Each group meets every day and gathers for year group assembly once a week. Your child’s Tutor is the first point of contact if you wish to discuss their academic progress, followed by their year groups’ Student Welfare Manager and Student Achievement Leader.
The Academy is split into four Houses and each tutor group is allocated to one of the Houses. The Houses are:
- Brodsworth House
- Chatsworth House
- Cusworth House
- Wentworth House
Student Support consists of three key areas:
- Special Education Needs/Learning Difficulties and Disabilities.
- Welfare Support including safeguarding through Student Welfare Managers and our safeguarding team.
- Achievement/Progress support through Student Achievement Leaders.
Student Support staff are qualified and experienced professionals who are able to provide the support and interventions required according to student needs.
We have a clear Anti-Bullying Policy so we can deal promptly and effectively with any instances of bullying which occur. As an Academy, we seek to provide a well-disciplined environment, one which is well ordered to promote student learning. We have a clear set of expectations set out in our Behaviour for Learning Policy, promoting good behaviour inside and outside of the classroom.
