Parents – do we have your up to date contact details?
From January 2017 our primary means of communication with home will be via emails, the website and text messages.
We will not be posting letters and leaflets to home. Please help us in ensuring your contact details are up to date.
Thank you so much for your support with this.

Re: Letter to Parents about New School Uniform
As you may be aware, we are changing the school uniform in September. This date will mark the end of the first ten years of Paddington Academy and this is the ideal time to update the uniform... Please click here to read the letter in full.
Attendance & Punctuality
Any parent requiring an absence for the purpose of a holiday or leave during term-time should make their application in writing at least three weeks prior to the time they wish to take leave. Additionally only one day will be authorised at a time for religious observance. This would include the Islamic Eid in September, as well as religious observance days of the orthodox Christian, Jewish and other religions. Any further absence would be considered unauthorised and should you decide to take your child/children out of school for this period you may be subject to a Penalty Notice issued by the Local Authority on your return, currently at £50 per child.
Reminder to parents: students are expected in school every day at 8.20am.
Parent View - Ofsted Survey
Parent View gives you the chance to tell Ofsted what you think about your child’s school, from the quality of teaching to dealing with bullying and poor behaviour. If you would like to access the OFSTED page for Parent View please go at the following link https://parentview.ofsted.gov.uk/. The survey can be completed at any time; you don’t have to wait until the school is being inspected.
