At Badock’s Wood E-ACT Academy we believe in providing the learning opportunities for all of our children to learn in a safe environment which will enable them to flourish and be successful in their later education and life.
We recognise that some children require a bespoke, tailored approach to ensure they are able to access the learning that they are entitled to.
Below are some of the ways we ensure our pupils have fair opportunities to learn and succeed:
- Class teachers plan lessons according to the specific needs of all children in their class to ensure that your child’s needs are met.
- Specially trained support staff can adapt the teachers planning to support the needs of your child where necessary.
- Specific resources and strategies will be used to support your child individually and in groups.
- Planning and teaching will be adapted on a daily basis, if needed, to meet your child’s learning needs.
- Pastoral support will ensure strategies are in place to support children with social and emotional barriers to learning.
If you have concerns about your child’s progress we would welcome a personal conversation to listen to your concerns. Ideally, you can contact the individual class teacher. If you are not happy that the concerns are being managed and that your child is still not making progress you should speak to the SENCO (Mr Oliver Laken).
Daily lunch clubs are offered in KS2 and then will be expanding to KS1 later on in the year. These clubs follow the THRIVE approach and work on a rolling set of activities over a fortnightly period.
We believe that everyone here at Badock’s Wood has the right to feel happy and safe when in school. Please click on the following link to have a look at our child friendly Anti-Bullying Policy. As always if you have any concerns or questions then please feel free to contact us.
Supporting Pupils with Medical Needs
E-ACT is committed to ensuring that all students with medical conditions can access and enjoy the same opportunities as any other student and to ensuring that they are able to play a full and active role in school life, remain healthy and achieve their academic potential.
E-ACT will ensure that its academies implement and maintain an effective management system for the administration of medicines to all students in our care in order to ensure that appropriate support is provided to individual students with medical needs.
Please contact our Individual Health Care Plan Lead, Mr Oliver Laken if you have any questions regarding your child’s medical needs.
We use a range of local health professionals to train and assist school staff in dealing with medical conditions and administering medicine.
Please contact the office if you have a specific question regarding this or any element of the Policy. Our First Aid Lead at the Academy is Jessica Wilkes.
Every year we give our children the opportunity to apply to be a house captain. The children complete an application form and then they are reviewed by the Senior Leadership Team. We are delighted to announce that the following children have been voted for this academic year:
Jermaine Cox – Blue
Kane Atwill – Red
Fatimata Sow – Yellow
Head girl and head boy
Say a huge “Hello” to our new Head Girl and Head Boy, Roksanna and Rutkowska and Theo Bailey Clark. These children are such great role models and consistently demonstrate our school values.
Our Associate Governors are the voice of our school. All of the children here know that they can approach our Associate Governors with any suggestions or ideas that they have for the school.
