which is primarily as a result of good teaching and very positive relationships across the whole academy.’ Ofsted
‘Students behave very well, show high levels of cooperation, respect and courtesy and work highly effectively with each other and their teachers. This creates a very positive learning environment.’ Ofsted

    ‘Coaching your teenager’ – a booklet to help parents of teenagers aged 14 to 19

    It can sometimes seem more difficult to get involved with a teenager’s learning. This booklet is designed to make it easier. It provides:

    • coaching tips and advice to help them get the most out of school or college
    • suggestions for ‘conversation starters’
    • advice on how to gain the confidence to get involved, and information on where you can find out more

    Taking an active interest in your teenager’s work is just as important as doing so when they are younger. Parents and carers who work as a team with their teenager can help them stay positive and on track to make the most of their future.
