Parents of all Year 6 students due to Transition to Outwood Academy Redcar in September 2020

At this time we are unable to offer any additional information in relation to transition for Year 6 students due to join the Academy in September 2020. We understand this is a difficult time and you will have many questions regarding the next steps. We would like to ensure you that we are doing all we can as an Academy to plan for the future. We are currently following government advice and guidance and will be in contact with the Local Authority to agree any plans.

We will inform Year 6 parents/carers at the earliest opportunity of any updates.

Thank you for your patience.

‘Word of the Week’ is part of the Academy’s ongoing strategy to improve students’ literacy. Students are being taught the importance of language and the need for a good vocabulary, both for their school work and as an essential life skill. There is an Academy WOW each week, displayed around school and on the website, and its use is reinforced by VMG tutors and in school assemblies. The word is designed to make students confident in their use of a range of complex words and their meanings, in a drive to improve student articulacy to even higher levels.

“As vocabulary is reduced, so are the number of feelings you can express, the number of events you can describe, the number of the things you can identify. Man grows by language.” – Sheri S. Tepper
