During the week beginning 21st June 2021, a number of Sirius Academy West students have received a positive Covid-19 test, resulting in the need for some student class bubbles to self-isolate for 10 days since their last contact. All students affected have been contacted and are aware of their self-isolation period and return dates in line with Public Health guidelines. Other household members of these pupils do not need to self-isolate unless anyone in the household develops symptoms. Students are continuing their lessons via TEAMS.

Sirius Academy West would like to invite nominations from parents/carers who are willing to serve on the Local Advisory Board (from September 2021), that has a focus on improving the school for our pupils. We have two positions reserved for parents/carers. A parent/carer must have a child in the school at the time of the election and for the academic year of 2021/2022.

The attached form should be completed and returned to Diane Dale, PA to the Head of School by those parents/carers wishing to make nominations. Those parents/carers nominated, seconded and who have indicated their willingness to stand for election by signing the nomination slip, may submit a brief biography and a statement as to why they wish to join the Local Advisory Board (about 100 words) for circulation with ballot papers. Nominations must be proposed and seconded by eligible parents/carers.

The closing date for all nominations is Tuesday 29 June 2021 at 12 noon. Nomination forms can also be collected from the main Reception Desk.

Please see documents below for further information.

Welcome to Sirius Academy West

Sirius Academy West is an inclusive and ambitious educational community that delivers a high quality, engaging and innovative learning experience tailored to suit the individual needs of our pupils, prioritising their holistic academic and interpersonal development. At Sirius West we encourage intellectual curiosity, constructive scholastic discourse and the pursuit of excellence in every endeavour. Through our state-of-the-art facilities, expert teachers and collaborative approach to learning our students leave us ready to make the seamless transition to further education, training or employment, securing purposeful, gratifying future vocations.

However, our pursuit of excellence is not wholly consigned to the academic. We place substantial importance on developing resilient, emotionally literate and professional young adults. Our ethos: RESPECT typifies the values we expect every student to exhibit. Respecting each other, their environment and their education, to name but a few of our core values. This social and emotional development is supported and enabled by an exciting enrichment programme that offers pupils opportunities to learn new skills and participate in a wide range of learning taking them beyond our curriculum and the classroom. Our ‘pledges’ promote self-reflection, soft-skill development and enhanced cultural capital together with offering students great opportunities to develop into confident young citizens keen to contribute to their community.

Developing a cohesive bond between home and school is of utmost importance to us. If we share a continuity and consistency of message our children have a significantly increased chance of success. We look forward to an enjoyable and fulfilling relationship with you in the coming years as we work closely together in pursuit of this goal. We trust that parents, guardians and carers will engage fully with all aspects of Academy life and we welcome your comments and feedback.

Sirius Academy West... where stars are born.
