A unique feature of joining the City of Peterborough Academy is our Year 7 base, situated in a self-contained purpose-built facility. We believe this provision aids the transition into secondary school by providing a secure learning environment in which our pupils can build relationships with their peers, adapt to new routines and develop a support network. The pupils are taught in their own area of the Academy which is for their use only.
In the base we provide a broad and balanced curriculum which challenges more able pupils and supports those with additional needs, including literacy, numeracy and handwriting. We also offer a bespoke provision for pupils who have English as an additional language (EAL). Pupils have a dedicated library and computer suite available at lunchtime. Feedback indicates that pupils feel safe and secure in this environment
The Greenwood Dale Foundation Trust has adopted this approach in all of the secondary academies within the group. Our approach has proved very popular with pupils and parents alike and has been praised by Ofsted as an example of national best practice.
