The Care and Guidance Team at Acle Academy have spent significant time resolving the hurt and harm caused by inappropriate use of the internet and social media sites such as Facebook, Twitter, AskFM etc. As a school we take this very seriously and frequently involve the local police. Further guidance for parents is available here and by clicking the red eSafe button.
It is an unfortunate fact of life that there will be some members of the community who think it acceptable to steal the property of others. Happily, this is a very rare occurrence at Acle Academy and we work closely with the local police to investigate and prosecute on those occasions. In order to reduce the risk of theft still further, we are introducing some new guidelines for looking after property during PE lessons. Click "the eyes" for the poster that will give you the details.
An Introduction to Acle Academy
Hello… Located in the heart of the Norfolk Broads, our school is fortunate to occupy a site just a short distance from the extensive waterways, paths and marshes that make up this very special wetland environment. We take inspiration from the beauty around us and an understanding of its fragility constantly reminds us of the need to work for a sustainable future, educating our young people to become true global citizens: the custodians of this rich heritage in years to come.
This website is designed to provide a window into our learning community. We hope you find it interesting and helpful. The website and the links it contains will allow access to a good deal of information. If you are parents or carers considering sending your children here, you may find the link to the school’s prospectus helpful. The links to ‘High Notes’, our fortnightly newsletter, will tell you what has been happening in the school and local community. If you wish to know more about our standards then please follow the links to our examination results and our targets.
For regular visitors we have arranged frequently accessed links and pages in the side bar to the right.
