The 8 essential skills are displayed proudly across our Academy, from the moment you enter the gates. They are displayed at the front entrance and in each classroom as well as the main hall, corridors, offices and even the staff room! Each 2 weeks a new skill is introduced, in assembly, by the Head of Academy, this skill will link to events we have coming up over those two weeks and each class will use the assessment tool to understand the next step they will be working on. The lessons within the Skills Builder Framework are followed by each year group and children who have shown amazing contributions towards that skill will be awarded a certificate in Friday's celebration assembly. Teachers now comment on the achievements their pupils have made towards the essential skills, in their school reports.
