As we get to the end of a busy term, it's always good to reflect.
Last week we had a visit from Jim Nixon, ex Head teacher at Great Yarmouth High and CNS. He couldn't believe how much the school has changed since he last visited and told us that if he was Head teacher here, he would be very proud.
I am exceptionally proud.
This term, we set ourselves 3 key aims:
We think we have come a long way in achieving these aims but we are not complacent and we know we still have work to do.
We have also been listening carefully to the voice of our parents and carers and responding to the things that you identify as areas of improvement. This week I will be sending out a "You said, we did" email to explain our responses so far.
We are so lucky to work with amazing students and supportive families. Thank you so much. Have a fantastic holiday when it comes and see you in 2019!
We would like to take this opportunity to confirm timings for the end of this term and for the January start. School will finish on Tuesday 18th December at 1.30pm .
School buses and taxis have been altered to allow for this. Please ensure your child knows the arrangements for them to get home at this time.
School will reopen for the New Year on Thursday 3rd January 2019 at 8.55am.
We would like to wish you all a happy holiday. Mrs Burton. Office Manager
Congratulations to all of the students who were nominated for Star of the Week this half term.
This is in recognition for excellence in or out of lessons, students' positive attitude, or academic achievement.
Keep up the good work.
We had our Xmas assembly on Monday 10th December. I would like to thank all the performers for their brilliant performances. This time we had 3 new performers (including a band) take to the stage - awesome, thank you for providing great entertainment.
81 certificates were given out for different achievements - take a look at the enclosed slideshow which was used on the day.
May I take this opportunity to wish everyone a fantastic Christmas and New Year.
The next few weeks on the run up to Christmas are very important as for the first time ever you have the opportunity to shape your education, choosing some of the subjects you will study in years 10 and 11.
As a year group you are making great progress across the curriculum, but there is still a lot to be done between now and the end of Year 9 so keep up the good work.
During December, a two-course meal for the whole family will be served at Unite the Union's Xmas Café.
Meals will be served between 12-30 and 14-30 on the following days: Wednesday 19th Thursday 20th Friday 21* Saturday 22nd Thursday 27th Friday 28th Saturday 29th
Where? At the Phoenix Centre, 132A Mile X Road, NR3 2LD.
Thank you to all the parents, carers and guardians of Year 9 students who completed the parent view questionnaire at Parents' Evening, the responses from which can be seen on the Parent View page.
The 6th form taster day was a real success. Nearly all our year 11 students, and around 20 external candidates, enjoyed a flavour of what life could be like in Sprowston 6th form. Don't forget to sign up now on the 'Help you Choose' website.
Sprowston Community Academy would like to say a massive thank you to Taverham Garden Centre, Tesco Blue Boar and lovely people form the local community for their kind donations of Christmas decorations.
Our Student Reception is now looking very Christmassy and all students and staff are saying how wonderful it looks.
Congratulations to all the students that completed their Compass Wellbeing Intervention and receiving their certificates, we are extremely proud of their acheivements.
