Weekly Newsletter – House System

Dear Parent/Carer

RE: House System

We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for the support that you have given the Academy this academic year: it has been a year that has seen many changes.

 

In preparation for a dynamic start in September, we have today informed students of significant changes to our pastoral system. This includes the appointment of non-teaching Heads of House, replacing teaching Heads of Year. Mr Budrys and Mr Garrett will now become Raising Standards Leads. As part of the new system, students have been reallocated houses, including form tutor changes.

 

This relaunch of the house system will enable greater competition within the Academy, whilst ensuring students are supported and home school links are clearer and more efficient. Form tutors will remain the first contact for parents, Heads of House can then be contacted as the primary escalation point.

 

Additionally, further changes have been made to the school day to accommodate the increasing number of students at lunch time. Please see below.

Whilst every effort has been made to support students, we recognise that these changes may be difficult for some. Should you have any concerns, the Heads of House will be happy to discuss these in September.

 

Finally, may I wish you all a pleasant and restful summer break.

Yours sincerely

H Hodges
