Parental Support

The academy aspires to the very best for each child; however we cannot do it on our own.

Research shows that parental involvement in a child’s education can make the difference of up to 30% improvement on achievement. We expect all parents to support the ethos and aspirations of The Portsmouth Academy. We ask you support us through ensuring your child:

  • Attends regularly, we expect pupils to reach a target of 95% attendance
  • Arrives punctually, in correct uniform, and fully equipped for learning
  • Completes all home learning on time and to a high standard ensuring they are supported at home to achieve this
  • We ask you to attend all school functions that involve your child. This includes: parent consultation evenings, safety on the internet, parents’ forums and for year 7, a meet and greet evening in the autumn term
  • We ask you to support us in promoting positive attitudes to learning
  • We hope parents and carers will consider becoming a parent governor or member of our parent-staff association.
