Reminder: Please sign Student Planners! One of the easiest ways of keeping in touch with your child’s progress is to make sure that you have signed their planner. You can leave notes in the planner if you wish to communicate with your child’s tutor or subject teachers and keep an eye on how much homework is being set.
We monitor our student’s planners every week and, when we see your signature, we know that we are supporting each other with your child’s education.
Every day at Evelyn Grace Academy is a learning day. We begin each day with a focus on a particular aspect of learning that focuses the mind, sharpens the appetite for learning and gives space for discussion that fosters deeper understanding.
We begin every week by discussing weekly targets with each and every student, so that there is a clear and accountable focus for every individual. We construct CVs and discuss different ways that we can develop skills that will make us attractive to employers and universities. We research university choices and courses, making sure that we are adept at navigating our way around the diverse range of information and data that is available. We discuss current news events and we aren’t afraid to analyse difficult topics or have challenging discussions with each other. We meet every week and share challenges, celebrate successes and reflect on our lives together, thinking about ways that we can seek to improve and to develop further.
