The House System
All students in Years 7 to 11 are divided into 4 houses; with each house being further divided into a number of form groups. Each form group contains students in Years 7 through to 11. All enquiries about your child should be made to the Form Tutor in the first instance, and then to the House Leadership Team should further intervention be required. For more information about the house system please click here.
Homework and Study Support
Homework reinforces and extends classroom learning, equipping students to be independent learners as they move through their education. As students approach exam periods, the skills developed will support revision and preparation for examinations. For the full policy and timetable please click here. If a student fails to submit homework it is recorded and sanctions can be given.
Study Support sessions are available after school during the week. Faculties will make their own arrangements but there will also be specific sessions available for each House. This schedule will be published on the school website.
PARS Insight is a system used to allow parents secure access to view selected information about your child directly from the school system, information such as timetable, attendance data, behaviour points to progress reports will all be live. The system is currently undergoing testing with Year 7 Parents, letters will be sent out to the remaining years over the next few weeks.
Alongside our exceptional induction and CPD programs here at The Holgate Academy we also offer access to the Trent Valley Teaching School Alliance (TVTSA). The TVTSA is run by our Diverse Academies Learning Partnership (DALP) outstanding partner school Tuxford Academy.
This kind of collaborative partnership means we can offer further training and career opportunities for all staff at The Holgate Academy.
The TVTSA takes pride in its personalised approach. All alliance schools benefit from a varied menu of opportunities from which choices may be made to meet individual school / academy needs. TVTSA is keen to embrace new ideas and initiatives and is always eager to welcome new colleagues to the team as advisers, professional tutors or leaders of education to provide a varied amount of training and support for individual members of staff and schools within the partnership.
You can find out more about TVTSA on the alliance website by clicking hereand by following TVTSA on Twitter @TVTSA.
