Our Commitment

We believe that children benefit tremendously when helped to bridge their two most important worlds and it’s important we all commit to the future of our children’s education.


We will…

  • Ensure that my/our child attends the academy regularly, on time and properly equipped
  • Inform the academy of any concerns or problems that might affect my child’s work, behaviour or attendance
  • Support the academy’s policies on behaviour, dress and appearance
  • Support homework and encourage other home learning opportunities
  • Attend parents’ evenings and contribute to other discussions about my child’s progress
  • Take an active interest in the life at The Whitehaven Academy and the part my child plays in it
