Our school website provides readily available and detailed curriculum maps that can be found all year round under curriculum, here each subject highlights the topics taught throughout the year which have been broken down term by term (please follow the link or instructions for more information: Year 11 Curriculum Plans or select: curriculum > subject > Programme of Study KS4 > Year 11).

School have invested in a system that tracks pupil progress and details areas of strength and areas of improvement, once rolled out fully this will allow for detailed information and clear areas for pupils to work on developing areas of the curriculum to improve progress.

A new behaviour policy has been put into place to reduce any reported behaviour concerns in classrooms and around school, once pupils receive five negatives points they will be placed on tutor report. This strategy ensures pupils consider their actions, keeps parents/carers informed and directs tutor discussion at the end of the day to guide pupils in the right direction.

We thank you for your completion of the questionnaire and we will be considering views to support and make amendments to future parent's evenings and school life.
