Evidence of learning

We set high standards for the work that students produce. Well-presented Evidence of Learning is a valuable aspect of the teaching - learning process. It reflects a student's willingness to strive for excellence and a high level of participation in their own learning. A policy which seeks to define expected standards throughout the school is essential if high standards are to be achieved and maintained.

Managing student attendance policy

The Academy expects students to be in full time attendance at school every day during the school year and punctuality and reliability is expected. Consistent attendance at school is a significant factor in achieving better academic and social outcomes. New concepts and skills are taught and reinforced each day by the teachers. If students miss the introduction of the reinforcement of these concepts and skills, they are likely to have gaps in their learning.
