Information regarding COVID-19
Future Academies’ highest priority is the wellbeing of its pupils, staff and wider communities.
We are following the Government and Public Health England’s advice on managing the COVID-19 virus and have been closely monitoring the situation. As such, we have taken the decision to close Phoenix Academy today.
This closure comes as a result of the unprecedented challenges that COVID-19 presents to our communities. This week, student attendance has decreased, alongside an increase in staff absence due to the latest guidance from the Government and Public Health England.
At present, Phoenix Academy will remain closed until Monday 20th April 2020. Any further closures will be communicated here, or if you are a parent/guardian, via letter and text message. The school will operate a monitored answer machine for urgent messages; please dial 020 8749 1141 to access this service.
During this challenging time, we hope to minimise the disruption to our students’ education as much as possible and we have set students work to complete on a daily basis.
We are implementing plans to provide food for students eligible for Free School Meals; parents/guardians have been contacted directly on this. Contact the number above if you have a query on this.
Thank you to all staff, both those in the classrooms and those who work behind the scenes, for their commitment and sacrifice during these times.
Please follow the latest guidance from the Government and we will continue to monitor the situation closely.
Welcome to Phoenix Academy. We are committed to getting the best out of every child and we achieve this through the twin pillars of our rigorous academic curriculum and an extensive enrichment programme.
Our academic curriculum is at the heart of school life and ensures that all students get the opportunity to study academic disciplines and to wrestle with ways of thinking that take them beyond everyday understandings.
Alongside the classroom experience, we place equal value on wider life experiences. We have a tremendous Adventure Learning Programme that is designed to ensure every student experiences the awe and wonder of the natural world and we are heavily involved in the Duke of Edinburgh award. Alongside this, we have a Phoenix passport that enables every student to take part in a wide range of activities, such as Debating and Public Speaking, that will help them develop into confident, articulate and resilient young people.
Whilst we want all our students to leave Phoenix with the currency they need to access the next stage of their education, we know that getting great exam results is only half of a good education. So we deliver as many opportunities as we can for every child to flourish outside the classroom.
As part of Future Academies, we have access to world class staff training and development, as well as expertise from the Curriculum Centre and Teaching School. Being part of a family of schools ensures that we can keep learning and evaluating our impact to ensure that every child who comes to Phoenix leaves as a well-rounded and polite individual with the drive and resources to lead a happy and successful life.
