Expectations of Students at the Academy

 

Student Expectations

At Kingswood Academy we have very high expectations of our students both inside and outside of the classroom. We want our students to leave the academy not only with a fantastic set of qualifications, but also as a well-rounded individual who has a vast array of opportunities ahead of them.  In order to help our students achieve their highest potential we have very clear Key Drivers which we expect all of our students to embody on a daily basis. We believe that the Key Drivers play an essential part in students becoming mature, responsible young adults who are ready for the wider world.

To accompany our Key Drivers we have created our own Student Learner Categories. It is expected that all of our students are classed at least as a ‘good learner’ within these categories. If a student does not meet these expectations they will be regularly challenged by staff until an acceptable standard is met. Students who continually fail to meet this standard will be placed on the report system whereby their daily conduct is monitored.
