We are excited to announce the launch of a Summer Qlub, this is an optional activity for the new students who will be joining us in September. This activity is funded by the Academy and Department for Education.
Summer Qlub is not part of our normal transition process for students, it is not compulsory nor is there the capacity for everyone to attend unfortunately. We’re offering this opportunity this year as a result of the impact of COVID-19 on some families. Think of it as a Summer Club that you might get at a leisure centre, only we’ll use the opportunity to get children accustomed to the Academy, our way of working, and support with literacy and numeracy. If your child is unable to attend because you have holidays booked or other plans, that’s no problem at all, and we hope that you enjoy whatever you’re doing; your child will not be disadvantaged by not attending.
The dates of Summer Qlub are:
Monday 2nd to Friday 6th August 2021; or,
Monday 9th to Friday 13th August 2021.
Children may only attend one of the two weeks, and there is limited availability, so places will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis.
As the Academy receives government funding towards activities on a day-by-day attendance basis, if you sign your child up for Summer Qlub and they then fail to attend part or all of the sessions, you will be charged the cost of all activities and meals missed. Children attending Summer Qlub must participate as best as they are able in all parts of the programme, on all days.
