Part 2: We wish you all a safe and restful weekend and look forward to seeing you all once again on Monday


Part 1: A huge thank you to those of you who have shown your support over the last few days. It has been a huge challenge, especially when you really want to keep the school open and we really appreciate everyone who understands it’s not just a quick and easy decision to make.


Retweetd From Essex Weather Centre

Disappointing to see local media once again creating unnecessary panic by using computer generated forecasts which show heavy snow all evening and overnight. This has forced shopping centres, schools, businesses and local shops to make decisions when NO disruptive snow expected.


9:30am start but if students want to come in earlier they can do


Both the warm and mock exam are cancelled today for those of you involved. 9:30 start


Just to confirm everybody is to leave the site at 1pm so there will be no year 11 intervention after school


Yes they do


Yes everybody is to leave at 1pm so no Year 11 intervention


Good morning all. We are open for all students with a reduced day to ensure more time to leave and exit safely. The School Day will start at 9:30am and finish at 1:00pm. If pupils wish to arrive earlier we will accommodate them as always. Please see the attached email sent out.

Harris Academies
All Academies in our Federation aim to transform the lives of the students they serve by bringing about rapid improvement in examination results, personal development and aspiration.

Student Welfare

The Academy has a range of policies and procedures in place that ensure the welfare of all of our students. Several of these policies set out expectations about good behaviour.  This means that everyone feels safe and can learn. 

Good behaviour includes good learning behaviour around the Academy and in lessons and also rules about communication and behaving appropriately towards other students and staff. We look carefully at the appropriate use of ICT,for example, anti-bullying and any learning, medical, emotional or social needs which may contribute to behavioural patterns. 

We have a dedicated pastoral team who dedicate themsleves to fostering good standards of behaviour, maintaining routines for good behaviour and intervening and investigating any incidents where behaviour falls below the standard expected. We also invest in counselling and life coaches as well as a well designed curriculum to assist pupils to understand and develop appropriate behaviour.

Regular attendance is also a vital part of securing student welfare. Students at the Academy have an excellent attendance record.  In order to best esnure the welfare of students attendance is checked every morning and afternoon for every student and contact should be made with parents and carers where there is non attendance. In order to support the Academy we request that parents or carers contact the Academy by 9.A.M. by telephone in the event of absence.

Appropriate medical care is provided during normal academy hours by our Health Officer. Many members of staff are trained in first aid.

Our policies related to welfare and behaviour can be found on the links below.
