2009/10


A message from the Principal I am pleased you are thinking of sending your daughter to The Crest Girls’ Academy, or if you are a prospective student, that you are interested in attending our academy. You are joining us at an exciting time in our history, as we create an academy that raises standards through innovation and investment. We have already been identified as a place where ‘students thrive, both academically and personally’ (Ofsted 2008). Here we foster a culture of independence through academic and vocational excellence, enabling all girls to take their places as world citizens. As we build on our specialisms in technology and languages and create an academy that releases the potential in every student, I look forward to welcoming in the students who will become Brent’s next generation of responsible, confident and inspired young people. Bev Bell Principal

” The aims of our academy are to: • Promote a calm, purposeful and happy atmosphere • Raise the levels of achievement among our students • Encourage increasing independence and self-discipline, so each student learns to accept responsibility for her behaviour • Ensure safety for all • Ensure that the buildings, equipment and everyone’s belongings are cared for.

Personal, social & health education (PSHE) All students in Years 7 to 10 have a Citizenship lesson once a week, a part of the curriculum which helps young people to understand their rights and responsibilities in order to play an active part in society.

Religious education and collective worship

In RE, we follow Brent SACRE’s agreed syllabus. Parents/carers have the right to withdraw their daughters from all or part of our RE and collective worship.

The Crest Girls’ Academy has a determination from Brent SACRE (Standing Advisory Council on Religious Education) which allows us to hold collective acts of worship for the academy’s main faith groups - Islam,

and choice. The Crest Girls’ Academy’s governing body has agreed the Sex Education Policy and copies of this are available from the academy. Parents/carers have the right to withdraw their daughters from all or part of the Sex Education programme, excluding aspects covered in the Science National Curriculum. Drugs education Drugs education is incorporated into many areas of the academy curriculum. In most subject areas, drugs-related education may arise as a result of student questions or a topical news story. A Drugs Awareness Day takes place at the end of Year 9.

Careers education and work-related learning At the centre of our curriculum is the individual student, her needs and future plans.

We offer a strong foundation for progression into further and higher education, and eventually employment.

the knowledge and skills to make informed decisions about which learning programmes to take.

During your daughter’s first years at The Crest Girls’ Academy, she will benefit from an engaging, broad and balanced curriculum, with an emphasis on high achievement in literacy and numeracy. For Year 7 students, a special transition curriculum will build on knowledge gained at primary school while easing her into the demands and opportunities created by The Crest Girls’ Academy.

Through learning and experiences inside and outside school, such as special entrepreneurship days and work experience, your daughter will begin to understand the nature of the world of work and be equipped with the knowledge, skills and attributes to make the most of opportunities in a changing world.

At The Crest Girls’ Academy our careers education and work-related learning curriculum aims to help students see the relevance of what they learn to their future lives. This is partly achieved by challenging stereotyping, discrimination and other cultural and social barriers. We will encourage your daughter to aim high and maximise opportunities for her to meet successful female role models.

For older students, a wide range of courses is offered to meet their interests, abilities and future intentions.

During key transition points your daughter will receive information, advice and guidance so that she becomes aware of various career opportunities and is able to develop


Student voice We encourage our students at The Crest Girls’ Academy to take responsibility for their own opinions and to offer feedback in a mature manner. We welcome their input into our Academy Improvement Plan. Each tutor group has a student council representative, and we encourage students to offer feedback in the following ways: • • • • • • •

By observing lessons By taking part in the interview procedures of teaching staff With regular student council meetings With student conferences With Individual Student Planning days With questionnaires and surveys Junior Leadership Team.

We hope parents/carers will encourage their daughters to participate in some of these worthwhile activities. Parent/ Carer Voice We encourage parents and carers to take a pro-active approach to their daughter’s education in every way. We have a vibrant Parent and Staff Association, and we encourage you to take part in their events. If any parent/carer has a concern, they should first contact their daughter’s form tutor, or if more serious contact the Year Director of Learning (YDL). Any parent wishing to speak to the Principal should contact her PA Amita Bajaj by email amita.bajaj@thecrestgirlsacademy.org.uk or telephone the main academy reception for an appointment. Parents who wish to make a complaint should obtain the academy complaints procedure either directly from the academy reception or the academy website: www.thecrestgirlsacademy.org.uk
