As we draw the academic year to an end I want to first thank, on behalf of staff and governors, all students, parents and carers for their hard-work and support. Similarly, we wish those staff that are leaving our best wishes and we thank them for their work at Q3 Academy Great Barr.
Some of our students will shortly be following the religious observance of Ramadan, which this year falls at the same time as the GCSE and A Level examination season. Students who are fasting may experience a range of possible benefits such as feeling closer to God, learning to exercise self-control, and strengthening community and family ties. However, we recognise that fasting often also results in tiredness, low energy, dehydration, reduced focus, memory and concentration issues, which may impact adversely on students during their exams.
We are rightly proud of our reputation for good conduct and behaviour, a view supported by Ofsted and the parent and carer feedback on ParentView. However, not all children will get it right every time, and when students do get it wrong we aim to work with all parties to put things right. No matter how good something is we should always look to make it even better; with that in mind we would like your views on some changes we are considering.
I would like to thank our students and staff for their fantastic commitment, teamwork and energy. I wish to thank the parents, carers and members of the community for the outstanding support provided to the Academy.
Welcome back to the new academic year 2018-2019. The term is now well underway and we are delighted that our students have settled into the new academic year so well. I am particularly impressed with our new Year 7 students and with the warm welcome they have been shown by older students. We are equally proud that so many of our former Year 11 students have achieved the grades they needed to return to our Sixth Form.
