The Academy Ethos
Partnership with Parents At Alec Reed Academy Primary we recognise the important and ongoing role parents play in their child’s education. We strive to build positive relationships as the foundation for children’s learning within a context of understanding and mutual respect. The ﬁrst point of contact for parents is the class teacher, classworker or SaFE Worker, who will work in consultation with other key staff to ensure your child enjoys the best possible experience at Alec Reed Academy Primary. We always welcome feedback and the opportunity to discuss ways in which we can work in partnership to improve. Children are encouraged to take responsibility and have a role in the management of their behaviour and that of others.
A Stimulating Education The Academy’s priority is to provide a stimulating, technology-rich education where children can develop the skills to be self-conﬁdent problemsolvers and excellent communicators, equipped to succeed in the dynamic workforce of the future.
Alec Reed Academy has a local catchment area and the pupil population comes from many ethnic backgrounds with a considerable proportion where English is not their ﬁrst language. It is this truly multi-cultural and inclusive educational environment which the Academy prides itself on and from which both children and staff beneﬁt. The Primary Phase Behaviour for Learning Policy outlines our expectations and forms the basis of our code of behaviour which we agree with children each year. We believe in educating the whole child to enable them to develop into conﬁdent citizens who can contribute to society.
