A COGNITIVE ACADEMY
e pride ourselves on being a ‘Cognitive Academy’. Our vision is to develop independent, resilient and resourceful young
people who are adaptable and well equipped for the competitive and rapidly developing 21st century work environment. We achieve this by developing skills such as independent learning, critical thinking, decision making and emotional intelligence through the Cognitive Learning curriculum. Additionally, every Monday students set out a series of targets that they aim to achieve during the week and on Friday they reflect on their success, planning how they will improve during the following week.

LEARNING & TEACHING
cademic progress is at the forefront of our priorities and we ensure that learning experiences for our students are
engaging, enjoyable, high quality and relevant to the modern world. Our teachers are encouraged to be reflective and commit to a culture of continual improvement as we develop opportunities for each and every student at Long Field to fulfil their potential.

students are the focal points of our student leadership structure and they assist the Heads of House in co-ordinating the wide range of activities throughout the year as part of the House Championship.
ur House system aims to develop community spirit amongst our students and staff, build tradition and raise standards.
Our Houses are called Titan, Phoenix, Pegasus and Leo, names which were selected by our students and staff. All members of staff are associated with a House and we aim to keep siblings within the same House in order for parents and carers to have the Head of House as a single point of contact for pastoral matters. Competition is at the heart of the House system and throughout the academic year there are a series of competitions involving all subject areas, culminating in the House Championship which is decided on Sports Day. Each day we have ‘House Time’ for 25 minutes between Period 2 and break. Students are in vertical tutor groups during this time, during which our Key Stage 4 students act as role models and mentor the younger students in Key Stage 3, whilst completing activities such as peer reading, independent study, and discussions based on current stories in the news

Students who qualify for Pupil Premium funding receive 1-1 tuition in core subjects throughout the week with qualified teachers who are employed specifically to help these students progress. Our Gifted & Talented programme is extensive and ensures that our most able students are fully challenged and experience a wide range of opportunities that inspire them to reach their potential.

BEYOND THE CLASSROOM
he opportunities for students to become involved in extra- curricular and enrichment activities at Long Field are
extensive. The radio station is run entirely by the students and broadcasts a mix of live shows and podcasts throughout the week, both within the Academy and on a local radio station. We have an inspirational group of students who run the Eco-Rangers club where the goal is to make our Academy more environmentally friendly. Our sports teams enter more competitions than any other school in the area and the Creative Arts Academy showcases the talents of our students in several annual productions and performances. There are rewards trips each term as well as annual residential experiences for all year groups.
