Catchment Area and Admission Policy Consultation
At a recent meeting of Acle Academy governors it was decided that the proposal to expand the school catchment area should be withdrawn. The existing arrangements will continue to apply in 2015.
It was never their intention to damage our relationship with our neighbouring schools and the families they support. It is evident from many of the responses to the consultation that there were some serious concerns about the impact of the proposed changes on the admission arrangements, with particular implications for the cost of transport.
It is also fair to say that there were several responses in favour of the proposals. We will now try to work with the Thorpe St. Andrew Educational Partnership of schools to find a way forward which supports families who wish to choose Acle Academy but live outside the catchment area.
We are currently reviewing our homework policy and would be grateful if parents and carers would find five minutes to complete a straight forward on-line questionnaire. Please click here to complete the survey.
You'll notice a new fund raiser link on our web pages. For the last three years we have received commission from Amazon for sales made via our web site. Now we can give you access to well over 700 online stores; more choice and a greater opportunity to build funds for school projects that are supported by the PTA. Joining up is free and you pay no extra for your purchases; just nominate us as the beneficiary of the commission - everything from your weekly shop to special purchases count. The PTA's recent support includes the "iPad Project". Next up are some rowing machines for our gym. Please do click the link.
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.
