Here are some of the ways in which our Academy ethos and values are fulfilled during our normal academy day:
The high expectations we have permeate life at Erdington Academy. We believe in respect for all – students enter the assembly hall in silence and stand for the person taking the assembly. Students also stand when the Headteacher or Deputy Headteachers enter the room.
We reward hard work – students are rewarded for producing an outstanding piece of work, making a great effort in class or demonstrating exemplary behaviour and contribution at school or in the community.
All students receive custom –made “workbooks” for each subject which gives them examples of our expectations and the tools to produce excellent work.
All students benefit from a range of extra-curricular activities. We offer an array of after school sporting options but also Duke of Edinburgh, debating, student leadership, book club, dance, photography, cheerleading among others.
There is strong pastoral support for students. All students are members of “vertical” mixed age tutor groups, which creates a family feel.
We celebrate different faiths and cultures throughout the year so that we can understand and respect the beliefs of others.
