Growing together, reaching higher
Together we can give each of our children the skills, personal qualities and qualifications they need to be successful at university and in the career of their choice.
We insist that all our teachers and support staff have the same high expectations for each child as they would have for their own son or daughter, and that they work in close partnership with parents to ensure exemplary behaviour and a strong commitment to learning.
At Ark Boulton Academy we feel privileged to lead a joint enterprise whereby the ‘village’ can help our children grow together and reach higher.
Pupils, parents, teachers all sign a Home Academy agreement. This is a joint promise that all of us will put in the time and effort required for our children to succeed. Parents are expected to support children by supervising home learning, ensuring that children attend school and wear the correct uniform.
Parents and carers are an integral part of our school community, and your feedback forms an essential part of our ongoing development and improvement. We regularly run surveys and sessions to gather your views on the education your child is receiving, and to understand where we can do better.
You can share your feedback via these channels:
- Ofsted's Parent View tool. This survey consists of 12 short questions around topics such as teaching and behaviour, and will feed into our ongoing development plan
- Directly with a member of our staff
- The main school office
Friday Morning - Parent Clinic
We have organised a range of workshops and parental drop-in clinic every Friday between 8.55am-9.50am. The sessions enable networking, support and offer practical advice to build relationships between our families and Ark Boulton Academy. These sessions also provide you with the opportunity to meet key members of the Senior Management Team and discuss any concerns you may have. Each week there is a variety of themes that are covered examples include, the Personal Development Curriculum, Accessing support for SEND needs, Post 16 options, Detention Policy and the Academy’s Behaviour Policy.
If you are unable to attend during these times due to work commitments or any other reason, then please get in touch with the Academy in relation to your query and someone will get in touch with you.
Daily Clinic – After School
From 3.15pm onwards there are staff available to speak to on a daily basis, should you have any concerns. Both Mr Willett and Mrs Javaid are based in the Main Reception area to deal with any queries/complaints that you may have. Whilst staff may not always have an immediate response to your concern, rest assured that this would always be passed onto the relevant member of staff who would get back to you.
