We are starting a Triple P course for parents at Paddington Academy. The course starts on Thursday 2nd May at 1pm – 3pm and it will run every Thursday (same time) for 8 weeks. More info about the Triple P programme you can find by clicing here.
In response to the recent benefit caps we are holding a session at 2pm on Wednesday 1st May with a Benefit Cap specialist advisor from the Department of Work and Pensions to help and advise any parents who are concerned about the changes to benefit payments. Ms Weekes will arrange for a text message to be sent on the day also. Please do come along if you are affected by these changes so that you can get all the help and information you need.

Important Notice: Uniform
Thank you to all students who did so well with the uniform in the past academic year. We have very high standards being set. All items of uniform excluding ties can be purchased from major retailers including Asda, Marks and Spencer and John Lewis. Parents and carers have the opportunity to purchase academy ties from the academy prior to the start of the new term. The cost of an academy tie is £5.00. Sports and PE Kit -The academy does not supply sports kit. These items can be obtained from major retailers as detailed above. Full details relating to uniform standards are included in the Paddington Academy Blue Book. Please remember that if there are any issues with uniform parents will have to be contacted immediately. If there is any doubt about uniform please contact the academy before purchasing an item of clothing.
Important Notice to Parents: Attendance & PunctualityAny 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.
