Eaton Bank Academy

Hello and welcome

Hello and welcome to Year 7, the beginning of a new era in your education. Here in Year 7 we have a close family-like bond and we are passionate about our school.

There are so many opportunities in Year 7 that begin with a whole Year group trip to the Bushcraft Experience in September. Pupils and staff experience a wide range of activities, designed to enhance social and personal development, whilst having fun and learning new skills.

There is also a vast range of extra-curricular clubs that all pupils are able to get involved in. These range from designing rollercoasters to music and drama clubs, science clubs and a huge array of sporting clubs. We compete regularly against other schools in Macclesfield and South Cheshire for Dance, Sport and Design Technology competitions. We also have leadership opportunities in Year 7. You can become one of our student ambassadors or a sports captain. We have an annual bowling trip that is organised by some of our older Eaton Bank students that Year 7 are invited to attend and finally there is the trip abroad to Normandy in the summer term, a great experience that is offered to all pupils. A great start to your high school journey!

Dance, Drama and Music homework will be set periodically throughout the year during a unit of work.

 

What can you do to support your progress?

Throughout Year 7 you will be completing student-led learning, as part of your homework, to support your progress at school.
This is additional learning that you can complete at home to consolidate both the skills and content you will need at KS3 and beyond. The expectation is a minimum of 45 minutes per week
This presentation contains information for each subject of what you can do to benefit your learning and progress.
This will also prepare you for the revision, independent learning and reflection skills you will need as you progress through the school.

The Process: Info for Parents

Students will use this resource presentation to complete student-led learning on a weekly basis throughout Year 7.
Mr Washington, Form Tutors and the students themselves will set ‘focus subjects’ to inform which subjects to prioritise.
Students will also be given a folder to put any completed work in and a booklet to track their progress.
Every week students will be expected to spend a minimum of 45 minutes on student-led learning as part of their homework.
Every week students will then spend time in core reflecting on their learning and progress and setting targets for the next week.
