As an Academy we are totally committed to promoting Equalities. It is really important to us that our students understand that we live in a world that is diverse and that we can celebrate this difference.
February is LGBT History month and as usual we will be celebrating this with a week of assemblies and a cake sale on Friday. Our rainbow flag will be flying with pride this week. This year the theme of LGBT History month is Peace, Activism and Reconciliation and we will looking at how far we have come since the Stonewall riots and what we can do to make a difference.
It is very important to us that every student and adult feels physically and emotionally safe in our Academy. We have a zero tolerance approach to all homophobic language and actions, whether this is intended to cause harm or not. This is a place where it is certainly not acceptable to say "This is gay!", Indeed, this must be a place where we are all free to be ourselves.
Year 10 are making a great start to the GCSE Geography course.
The quality of the work by some students is outstanding.
Well done to all students who took part in reading challenge. Some of them met in Mr Jones's room on Wednesday lunchtime and discussed what they had been reading. The range of books was very wide, and the enthusiasm was excellent.
Look out for more reading events through the year.
If you weren't able to come to the meeting and would like to hand in your form, bring it to Mr Jones in WS07
