Additional Information

Headteacher: Mr. Patrick Earnshaw. After school clubs available: see website for information. Pastoral care available: Individual schools have their own parent support interventions, such as family support workers, parents information sessions, or drop in sessions. Lunch break: 1.20pm to 2pm. Academies are publicly-funded independent schools. Academies don’t have to follow the national curriculum and can set their own term times. They still have to follow the same rules on admissions, special educational needs and exclusions as other state schools. Academies get money direct from the government, not the local council. They’re run by an academy trust which employs the staff. Some academies have sponsors such as businesses, universities, other schools, faith or voluntary groups. Sponsors are responsible for improving the performance of their schools.
