We've nearly made it!

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:

  1. To Improve the culture and behaviour for learning in school by adopting clearer and more consistent expectations.
  2. To make sure our lessons, curriculum and assessments get our students ready for the more "knowledge rich" examinations.
  3. To make sure the well-being of our students and staff is paramount in everything that we do.

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 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.'
