What an Epic Week!
As we finish the first month of our academic year, we are now ready to assume some of the important roles within the academy. We have settled into our new classes, getting to know our peers and adults, we have become more confident with the expectations set and have started to explore how we can grow as both learners and individuals. Within the academy, we need leaders and this week has been about children having the courage to stand for two significant roles - academy councillors and for Year 6, Tower Captains. Very much summoning our Trust value of Courage, pupils have put themselves forward in the elections, presenting their ideas in manifestos to their friends and peers. The adults within the academy were relieved that they were not allowed to vote as they acknowledged that it was very difficult to choose between such strong candidates. The successful candidates will take up post immediately and begin their work supporting the academy. We are very proud of all that took part.
Next week is one of our favourite of the year as it is the first time that the pupils and their families formally meet with the staff. Please check bags and folders to ensure that you have your appointment as this is such an important event. It provides you with opportunity to get to know your child's teacher better as well as find out more about your child as a learner. As always, the studio will be set up with the Book Fair and Safe Zone for you to leave your child when you go to your appointment. We do recommend that Year 5 and 6 pupils accompany you to your appointment so that they too can hear the messages shared. If you also wish to speak to our SENDCo Mrs Cradduck , please see the academy office to make an appointment. We look forward to seeing you on Tuesday, 9th October or Wednesday, 10th October.
