Snapchat - Keep Yourself Safe

Many of our students use the popular social media platform Snapchat, however, Snapchat have introduced a tracker in the new update, this allows you to view the exact location of your friends, anywhere, anytime, live.

This feature is turned on as a default setting after the latest update has been done. It can be turned off.

In the interest of e-safety (staying safe online) we felt we should bring this to the attention of our students, parents and guardians. It is ultimately your choice whether you use the feature or not, however, if you do wish to turn the feature off then you need to activate Ghost Mode.

To do this, go to the Snap Map homepage and in the top right hand corner you will see a cog or the usual setting symbol, to change your location sharing setting you can click on this. Then switch on Ghost Mode

Please stay safe online.


Letter to Parents about Ofsted Inspection

on Wednesday, 14 June 2017 12:15.

Our academy recently received an Ofsted Inspection to which we have had the results. Please see below a letter from Mr. Hammond about the inspection. A hard copy of this letter will also be posted to parents/guardians.

14th June 2017

Dear Parent/Guardian

Our Ofsted report is now available to read and you may download a copy from our website. The inspection was very thorough and covered every aspect of the Academy. The judgements reflect the very high standards expected under the most recent Ofsted inspection framework (September 2016) which places a much greater emphasis on the performance of disadvantaged pupils compared with all pupils nationally. I am very happy that the education of young people in our care should be subjected to the most rigorous scrutiny.

I am pleased that Ofsted recognised that safeguarding procedures are “effective”. The report also notes that “pupils feel safe and are safe” in the Academy. The report praises our broad curriculum which is “enriched well by a range of extra-curricular activities” and the way it supports moral, social and cultural development. During the inspection several areas were recognised as being particularly strong including the arts and the outstanding impact that our Information, Advice and Guidance has on the destinations of students.
