Learning

  • We believe every student at Magna is capable of academic success and gaining a place at university.
  • It is through hard work on the part of each student, with our support, that their potential will be realised.
  • We will deliver a high powered, knowledge based academic curriculum and set challenging academic targets.
  • We will make sure we always come to lessons prepared and continually interest students in the challenging work that paves the way for success in school and life.
  • We will organise and deliver intervention and revision sessions for your child where we feel that this is needed to help them reach the highest possible grades.
  • We will provide rewards for students’ effort and commitment.
  • We will set appropriate and relevant homework every night, including on weekends, which we will check, and/or mark.
  • We will constantly strive to become better educators.

Pastoral Care

  • We will ensure that each student’s Form Tutor will follow their progress and ensure that their individual needs are met.
  • We will go out of our way to get to know each of our students as individuals.
  • We will care about our students’ well-being, and protect their safety at all times.

Parent-Academy Communication

  • We believe that, through regular communication, a relationship of trust between school and home can be created.
  • We will hold parent meetings once a year and issue reports after every Unit of Work (every 6 weeks).
  • We will make sure that students and parents will be able to contact their Head of Faculty by phone and email and will reply to all communications from parents as soon as possible, usually within 24 hours.
  • We will collect and check homework each day, and if it is not complete or up to the required standard, we will contact parents by 10:00am to inform them that their child will be staying to complete homework after school. This information will also be available on Progresso.
  • We promise to welcome parents into the school community.

Discipline

  • We will enforce the Magna Academy Behaviour Policy consistently and fairly.
  • We will protect students from poor behaviour by insisting on the highest standards and holding students to account for their actions.
