Parents/Carers Information


Please read our Alternative Certification Model (ACM) for the S4/5/6 assessment diet during the month of May. All S4/5/6 have been issued with a copy of their assessment timetable and were given allocated time on Monday/Tuesday afternoon to put this in to their own assessment calendars.  We would be really grateful for the support of parents/carers in checking they have completed this, supporting study time over Easter and also going over the ACM.  Thank you.

School Improvement Planning

We have sent an email to all parents/carers yesterday asking for your support in helping us identify the aspects we are doing well at Knox Academy and asking for the areas you think we can do better in or need to focus on next session. By us all working together we aim to ensure we support all of our young people to achieve their potential. 

Thank you to the parents/carers who have already responded, and I do hope you will all manage to complete our questionnaire (it takes about 5-10 minutes to complete). The more responses we have will ensure us that we have a true representation of our school community’s views and what you believe are the important aspects we need to focus on to improve our school and community.  Your views are very much valued.

Pupils and staff are also being asked for their improvement ideas. Once we have feedback from all groups we will look at these collectively and extract the main themes to focus on to help us on our journey to excellence. I will also report back to you about the findings from all groups and our plans for next session.
