Positive Recognition Celebrations

July 16, 2018

Our “Summer Festival” for Positive Recognition week is in full swing! Today year 10 students have enjoyed hotdogs, ice creams and music throughout period 5 as part of their recognition for going above and beyond this term.

Pastoral Updates & changes to The Academy Day

July 6, 2018

From September we will move away from our current Learning Leader / Achievement Officer structure and introduce Pastoral Year Leaders. The Academy Day will also see some restructuring – the academy day will begin with Period 1, not form time. This makes punctuality to school even more important.

Further details regarding both have been sent home in a letter with your child. A copy of this can be downloaded from our ‘Letters from the Academy’ page, or direct by clicking the link below:

Year 6 Transition Information

June 25, 2018

In order to support students as they make the transition to Ossett Academy, we have provided a comprehensive transition guide which includes, but is not limited to the curriculum and assessment, enrichment activities and SEN support. We have also included a Frequently Asked Questions section towards the back of the guide to answer any queries you may have. In addition, you may also wish to read the academy magazine ‘Ossett Voice’ as this showcases the outstanding work of our students and their achievements both within and beyond the classroom.

The guide can be found under the ‘Parents’ menu (entitled ‘Year 6 Transition’) or via the following link: https://www.ossettacademy.co.uk/parents/year-6-transition

Yr6 Transition Evening – Rescheduled

May 10, 2018

Unfortunately the transition information evening for parents of Year 6 students looking to start in Year 7 from September 2018 which was previously scheduled for 16 May 2018 has now been rescheduled and will instead take place on Thursday 14th June 2018.

We shall be writing to parents in the coming days in order to provide further information.

Our original calendared date was rescheduled in order to allow students and families to focus on SATS. In addition, a number of families will be awaiting the outcome of the local authority appeals for places at the academy and it was decided a later date would allow all students and families to attend.

We apologise for any confusion this may have caused.

Get lost in a great book!

May 4, 2018

Bank holiday weekend will give all students an opportunity to get stuck into a good book. Visit the LRC and find out what our librarians are recommending for your year group.
