Activities Day 2023
We are very pleased to be able to offer an Activities day on Friday 14th July 2023 as part of the Academy calendar. The normal academy timetable will be suspended for all students in years 7-9. This is an opportunity for students and staff to be able to enjoy offsite activities, develop socially and ultimately create memorable experiences.

Your child will be engaged in onsite activities for activities day on Friday 14th July and does not need to wear their school uniform. They must however, wear clothing suitable for PE type activities.
Please note: All onsite activities will be based at the Waterleat road site and students from both sites will need to attend at Waterleat road.
Students will not be expected to arrive before 9.00am and should meet in the HUB at 9:15am to register. There will be several activities available with two breaks within the day, one at 10.45am-11.15am and the other at 12.30pm-1.00pm. The canteen will be open on these times where food and drink can be purchased as normal. Students entitled to Free School Meals will still be able to claim their food.
Students are welcome to wear or bring their school PE kit but they should bring a drink and a packed lunch if they are not using the canteen.
The school day will finish at 2.00pm. Students will be expected to leave the school site at this time.

We expect full attendance on this day. All absences, however, should be reported to the Academy by calling the attendance office at Waterleat road on (01803) 403602 or by email email@example.com

All activities will be given on a first come first served basis and with confirmation of payment. Please only book one activity for the day. Once your place has been secured this cannot be changed unless there are exceptional circumstances. Students taking part in activities do not need to wear school uniform.
Any student who does not book an activity during the booking period above will automatically be enrolled in classroom-based activities on the school site for the day. Students will be expected to attend the Academy in full uniform. This is a school day, and we expect all students to attend.
All payments are non-refundable unless the activity is cancelled by the Academy.
Specific information about each activity will be sent out once all places have been filled and confirmed.
We have very high expectations regarding the conduct and behaviour of our students both within the Academy and in the wider community. The vast majority of our students rise to these expectations and are a credit to both us and their families. Please note: Any students who receive a fixed term suspension from the 17th April 2023 (Start of summer term) onwards will only be permitted to take part in onsite classroom-based activities.
It should be noted that we may reserve the right to remove students who we feel may fail to achieve the high standards of conduct. In the unlikely event of this happening the decision will be made by the Principal of the Academy and would be a last resort. In these circumstances any monies paid will not be refunded.
