Introduction of Acting Head of School

I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself to you formally as the Acting Head of School and share with you some changes that have been introduced recently in relation to the Academy’s Behaviour Policy to ensure that all students get the ‘best deal’ out of their learning at Nunthorpe Academy.

Attendance Reward Trip

Due to the success of the attendance trip last academic year, I would like to inform you that the academy will be organising a similar rewards trip in July 2020. In July 2019 302 KS3 students qualified to attend a reward trip to Alton Towers during the school day due to their attendance finishing on 98% or above on Friday 14 June 2019.

HPV Vaccinations Information + Electronic Consent

Please visit the link in the letter below to consent for your child to receive their HPV vaccine. This consent must be completed by 19th July 2019 to ensure we can vaccinate your child in the autumn term.

New Procedures during Examination Season

After the academy's review of the 2018 Examinations and discussions with outside agencies (Ofqal, JCQ etc.), we have added the following to our examination procedures.

Measles, Chicken Pox and Shingles

We would like to ask for your co-operation with a very important matter within our academy. We have a couple of students who are receiving medical treatment for cancer, which puts them at extreme risk if they are exposed to measles, chicken pox or shingles.

New Academic Year Pastoral Changes

As part of our system changes which coincide with the start of the new academic year, I feel it is important to inform you of the pastoral re-structure we have implemented.

Changes to lunch time arrangements

As many of you are aware, due to the nature of our academy building, one of our greatest daily challenges is to ensure all of our children enjoy a satisfactory lunch time experience. As the number of students on our roll has grown over time, lunch times have become increasingly problematic.
