Restart a Heart Day - 2019

On Wednesday 16th October our new Year 7 cohort took part in the nation's biggest CPR training event - Restart a Heart Day.
 
Restart a Heart Day is an initiative backed by the British Heart Foundation, to increase survival rates of those suffering Cardiac Arrests and Heart Attacks; using CPR whilst waiting for an ambulance can at least double a person’s chance of survival.
 
The school welcomed 5 volunteers from Yorkshire Ambulance Service who gave up their own time to deliver the essential life-saving skill to all Year 7 students during a full day of activities.
 
The students watched a short presentation on how to recognise a cardiac arrest, this was followed by a practical element where every student practised their skills on a CPR mannequin to 'Baby Shark'.
 
Students were thoroughly engaged throughout and really valued the importance of what they were trying to achieve. It was fantastic to see our students engage so well with it. Well done and huge thanks to those at the Yorkshire Ambulance Service!

Y6 Virtual Open Night - Transition Update

Due to the current restrictions that we all face we are unable to host our annual Open Night for prospective pupils and their parents/carers. We acknowledge the important decision that you all are set to make in selecting your preference for secondary education in 2021 and are keen for that decision to be an informed one.

Thus, we are hosting a Virtual Open Night on Thursday 8th October 2020 for all pupils that are considering Sirius Academy West as their destination for September 2021. The evening will feature the premiere of our own short film and also provide additional links to other informative videos. These will include introductions to key staff, testimonials from current students, overviews of the varied subjects and courses available at the academy, and an all access tour following a current student during an academy day.

The event will also promote the academy’s thorough transition programme that seeks to remove barriers to movement from Year 6 to Year 7 and allow all pupils to thrive on arrival. Despite the enforced closure in March, many pupils in our local Primary Schools have already started this journey with themed visits to the academy in Year 5. 

The academy has been heavily oversubscribed for places within Year 7 in recent years and we expect this to be repeated again this year. We encourage pupils and parents to not miss out!

For any additional information regarding the event, and/or details regarding the transition process, please contact Mr Gordon on (01482) 352939. All of the Year 6 pupils in our local Primary Schools will soon receive individual invites to their evening.
