We see the relationship between family and academy as two way. We promise to:
- Provide a safe and inspiring place for your child to learn and grow
- Prepare their lessons thoroughly and to mark work promptly, giving constructive feedback so they can improve
- Keep you updated on your child’s progress, as well as on things happening in the academy
- Supply reading record and home books, which we will check and sign each week
- Recognise and reward good effort and achievement
- Encourage our pupils to take an interest in extracurricular activities.
In return we hope you will support us by:
- Insisting on high standards of behaviour from your child, based on respect, courtesy and consideration for others
- Encouraging good attendance and punctuality – and making sure your child arrives at school in their uniform and properly equipped for the day ahead
- Not taking your child on holiday during term time
- Ensuring their home learning tasks are completed, and checking and signing their reading record or home book each week
- Attending our regular parent/teacher progress meetings
- Getting in touch with us if you suspect there is a problem.
Please find below information about the way our curriculum is taught. Parents or other members of the public can find out more about our curriculum by contacting the school.
From September 2014 the new National Curriculum will be taught at E-Act Blackley Academy.
Links are made where possible to the children’s learning in English and Mathematics in order to provide them with meaningful contexts and purposeful opportunities to learn and apply their skills.
Our aim is to provide a broad and balanced curriculum which helps children to acquire the knowledge, skills and attitudes which fully prepare them for the next stage of their education and later life in modern Britain. Through our curriculum, children learn about British values such as freedom, tolerance and respect for the rule of the law. We strongly believe that the focus on this in our curriculum helps to develop responsible, thoughtful pupils who have the capacity to make positive contributions to life in Britain now and in the future.
We also value the importance of supporting children’s spiritual, moral, social and cultural (SMSC) development and ensure that this is a focus in all we do including within our curriculum.
