What a fantastic half term!

As we reach the end of the first half-term, I wanted to say thank-you to everyone who has helped make this such a successful and happy half-term.  There are lots of things I want to mention but here are just a few:
  • Our new behaviour and reward policy really making a difference and transforming attitudes and learning
  • Students really embracing the "no mobile" policy- it is really nice to see students talking to each other again at breaks and lunchtime
  • Y7 and Y12 students settling in so well and already making a positive impact on the school
  • The overwhelming support for "Hello Yellow", supporting mental health awareness.  Personally and professionally, it means so much to me to see our school community recognising and valuing the importance of mental health
  • The "feel" around school cannot be easily put into words, but there is a calm, friendly, supportive and purposeful "vibe" that makes the school a great place to be
  • Our new mini-buses arriving back fully "wrapped" with images of our students and an emotional recognition of the late Norma Smith who gave so much to our school and is missed so much
  • Our Open Day was an opportunity for us to showcase our school and I was so proud of our students and staff for the way they conveyed what we are all about as a school.  It was also lovely to meet prospective new students and parents/carers
This week we look forward to our Sixth Form Open Evening at 6pm on Wednesday evening.  We are excited about what our sixth form offers and we are keen to share this.  Wednesday will also see another non uniform day, this time supporting a student led charity "Serious Fun".  On Thursday, staff look forward to an inset day on the new Gatsby Benchmarks (promoting careers education), promoting speaking in the classroom, and supporting the needs of diabetic students in school.
Have a fantastic holiday when it comes.  Thank you for all your support, it is very much appreciated.

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.'
