From Ms Wood, Head of School

It has been a busy couple of weeks since we returned from half term.

In addition to ensuring that the Years 11 and 13 exams have run smoothly, there has been a real focus on achievement.  I hope you have received your child’s latest tracking report and have had a chance to reflect on what it shows.  Our departments, faculties and year groups have been busy looking at the information so that we can support and challenge the students who need it.  If you have any concerns about your child’s report or would like to talk to someone about it, please do not hesitate to contact us.

The Leadership Team have also spent 2 busy days going into lessons to sample the teaching and learning experience and look at student work.  We have been impressed by much of what we have seen.  There is an obvious link between high attitudes to learning, engagement, attendance in lessons and student progress.  It has been particularly nice to see the positive relationships that exist in our classrooms and the pride that students are showing in their work in many subjects.

This week will be celebrating our school production of The Addams Family.  If you have not yet bought a ticket - please do!  Anyone who has seen a school musical directed by the talented Ms Lawrence will know that it will be spectacular- West End Quality but with the feel good/pride factor of knowing the students involved.  

We believe every child and young adult at Sprowston Community Academy should be ... 'Healthy, happy and safe; loved, valued and respected; and have high aspirations for their future.'
