How do pupils join Rise Academy?

Rise Academy is a Pupil Referral Unit for pupils from Years 7 to 11.

This means that pupils come to us via a referral process, either from their previous school or directly from the Local Authority.

We have 188 students on roll for the academic year 2018/19 (October 2018 census).

How does Rise Academy report progress to parents?

Each pupil’s learning journey is captured using our unique Grade Point Average assessment system (GPA). This data is an holistic measure of a students progress while at Rise Academy. The information is taken every half term and a progress score is shared with parents at each assessment cycle. In addition students are tracked in line with their qualification outcomes. Academic Review meetings are scheduled throughout the school year and parents receive information once per term.

To ensure that KS4 students are working towards their aspirational post 16 direction progress is reviewed against their choices from each of the three study baskets; throughout this journey to success discussions are held to ensure students are on track to meet their potential.

What arrangements does Rise Academy make for pupils who are accessing support or provision from other places?

To ensure our students are able to access the necessary support, we proactively assist them with travel around the city using public transport.

This also helps to develop a sense independence and confidence that will be needed in preparation for their working life in the future.

Rise Academy coordinate all support and provision and provide students with free bus travel vouchers.

How Does Rise Academy support students with Special Educational Needs (SEND)?

An individual learning journey is developed for each student and will always take into account any additional needs the student may have.

Following changes to the SEN code of practice in 2014, we have implemented a system of wave support to ensure those in need are easily identified and the most appropriate support to aid the social, emotional and academic development is available. Our SEND policy is regularly reviewed to ensure we reflect the latest legislation.

School at a Glance

We are inspirational

  • By approaching students as individuals and understanding their perspectives, we find new and exciting ways to reactivate their engagement with learning. There is no ‘one-size-fits-all’ solution here.

We believe in young people

  • We believe every young person has positive potential and that no student is a “lost cause”, whatever their history. We believe that disengagement is a response to the situation, not the problem, and that given the right support, every student can make a positive contribution.

We are committed

  • The young people who come to us have reached a crisis point. Poor choices, combined with a lack of opportunities and insufficient support, have set them on a downward spiral. We will break this cycle.

We are expert professionals

  • We are experienced, we know what we are doing and can demonstrate that our methods and approach yield outstanding results. We aim to set the standard for excellence in our field and show others how to achieve similar results.
