Learning Entitlement

Everybody has the right to learn, to be respected, to feel safe and to be fairly treated. At Nightingale Community Academy all students are entitled to:

  • Expect your teacher to meet you at the beginning of each lesson, ready with something interesting to do
  • Expect to be told how to be successful during the lesson
  • Expect your teacher to share with you what level you are currently working at, and how to move on from that
  • Expect to be regularly assessed, and for this to be shared with you, so that you and others can see the progress you are making
  • Expect the classroom you work in to have a positive atmosphere for learning, for both staff and learners
  • Expect your teachers to work with you to help you to achieve your potential
  • Expect your lessons to have a variety of activities both familiar and more challenging
  • Expect your teacher to guide you in developing skills for independent learning that you will take with you from Nightingale Community Academy into your future

The principal and leadership team, well supported by the Orchard Hill College and Academy Trust, have provided strong leadership, which has had a positive impact on the school’s effectiveness. As a result, there have been improvements in all areas, most noticeably in pupils’ behaviour and attitudes, the curriculum and in the wider opportunities for pupils.
