Behaviour Policy Annex 

We have a comprehensive risk assessment in place to minimise the risk of Coronavirus. It is aligned to the most recent government guidance and is updated regularly as required. If you would like to view a copy of our risk assessment, please contact the Academy office. 

Remote Learning

If your child is absent from school because they need to self isolate, please go to their Google Classroom or Tapestry account where activities will be available.

Guide to Google Classroom

Please note if a whole class 'bubble' needs to isolate, then our full remote learning programme will be in operation. This will run from either 'Tapestry' (Reception) or 'Google Classroom' (Year 1 - 6).

In this circumstance, you will be notified directly and lessons will be uploaded daily.

Catch Up Premium

In June 2020 the government announced £1 billion of funding to support children and young people to catch up on missed learning caused by coronavirus (COVID19). 

The document below sets out how the academy plans to utilise their Catch Up Premium.

Family Group Cup

There are four family groups at the Academy based on NASA Space Shuttles (listed below). Each family group have also been allocated a colour to make things a little easier for the younger children. Siblings who attend the Academy are always placed in the same family group. Tokens are allocated to children throughout the year for hard work, being kind and polite, being helpful, taking part in sports activities and exceptional behaviour to name a few. Tokens are collected in a central area in the Academy’s Discovery Centre and the family group with the most tokens at the end of the academic year wins the family group cup!

Due to the school closure in 2020 & 2021, the Family Group Cup was not awarded. All points will be carried forward to the 2021/2022 year.
