Pupils from all years unite under the banner of SMSC

Throughout the last half term a new group of pupils has been forming, called the SMSC Youth Leadership Group. Comprising 65 pupils from all year groups, the “YLG” has been created to enrich the Academy with SMSC projects. “SMSC” is an important Ofsted focus which involves supporting and nourishing pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural education.

The YLG students hope to present pupils’ perspectives on SMSC at regular intervals so that teaching and learning is always closely connected to what our young people believe is important to them. Their ideas are being used to fuel the key campaigns that will be introduced over the coming year, including: Family First, Face and Familiarity, Mini Markets, Easter Feature and Right to Respect. With the initial training sessions now behind them, pupils met this week to design important visual material for the Face and Familiaritycampaign; this involves creating visual displays and images that publicise the core objectives at the heart of SMSC so that all those who work and play at our academy will be engaged with SMSC values.

To do this the YLG created “pupil speak” versions of the Ofsted SMSC criteria which they then used as the focus for their visual campaign. In addition, pupils designed a “character” who is the mascot for SMSC. The face of the character, yet to be named, was the brainchild of talented YLG artist Phuong Bui in year 8.

This character will become a labelled visual aid in all teaching rooms, so that pupils and teachers can refer regularly to the principle elements of SMSC throughout a lesson, enabling all teaching and learning to consistently target SMSC and to recognise pupils’ contributions that have SMSC undertones. The YLG is in its infancy, but their Face and Familiarity work is growing fast… so look out for the “Think SMSC!” advertisements coming to a corridor near you!







Students talked positively about the changes made since opening as an academy and value the improved guidance and support received from staff. They say it is a safe, enjoyable and healthy place to be.

Road Safety


It has been brought to our attention by members of the public, staff and concerned parents and carers that students need to take greater care when travelling to and from the Academy, particularly by bike.

We are alarmed that many students are cycling on roads and pavements without safety helmets and need to be much more aware of traffic as they make their journey.

Please support us and the safety of the students by reinforcing this message at home and ensuring that appropriate caution and head-wear to minimise the risk in case of accidents which unfortunately can happen without the right care and attention to the road.


Its strengths include the good quality care, guidance and support which enables students to feel safe, enjoy their learning and make good progress.
