Principal’s Letter - Friday 12th September 2014

Dear Parents and Carers

Students have continued to make an impressive start with their attendance to school.  The whole school attendance figure is currently above the national average for secondary schools across the country.  We would like to take this opportunity to not only congratulate them but also to thank you for your continued support.  Ensuring your child arrives at school daily, on time, in correct uniform and fully equipped will increase their chances of making good progress with learning. 

We would like to take this opportunity to remind you that any visitors to the Academy must report to our Main Reception via the entrance at the front of the building.  If your visit is of a nature which will see you enter the main building, you will be asked to sign in.  For the duration of your visit you will be provided with a clearly visible visitor’s badge which contains safeguarding information. 

At Sheffield Springs Academy safeguarding children is everyone’s responsibility.  Our team of Social Workers work closely with the designated Child Protection Liaison Officer (CPLO) and Heads of Year to be a point of contact for students with any problems affecting their learning, including family break up, attendance issues and those under the care of the local authority.   Our designated Safeguarding Team consists of:

Sharon Jones

Sarah Grierson

Mark Goodwin

Caroline Hayes

The Maths department will be following a policy of setting a minimum of 3 mymaths.co.uk tasks as extended learning per week. Students will also get written homework at times.  The mymaths.co.uk password for the school has changed and the login details are:

Login: sheffspr

Password: divide

Please support your child by checking they are completing their extended learning. Any students without access to the internet can come to the Maths Homework club in A2 on Mondays and Thursdays, 3.00pm – 4.00pm where laptops will be provided.

Last week we sent home our uniform policy, we would like to clarify that any confiscated mobile phones will be returned to students at the end of each day and not the end of the week as stated.

The Local Governing Body (LGB) plays an important role in both supporting the Academy and challenging staff and students to make progress and bring out ‘The Best in Everyone’. In the past our parent governors have brought to our meetings valuable insights into the views of students and the wider community the Academy serves. 

Discretion, a sense of responsibility to all the young people in our community and an understanding of confidentiality are vital to this role. If you are interested in standing for election, please contact Mrs Cook; Clerk to the LGB at enquiries@sheffield-academy.org by Friday 19th September.

Yours sincerely                                           Yours sincerely                                              Yours sincerely

Russell Heritage                                          Lee Morritt                                                    Jeremy Richardson
