Year 11

I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself; I am Miss Dixon, Head of Year 11.

My role is to support and guide all pupils through their final year at Morecambe Bay Academy to ensure that they are fully prepared for their next steps in life, whether that be in 6th Form, at College or completing an Apprenticeship.

As well as ensuring your child receives outstanding teaching and learning I know as parent and carer what matters most is that your child feels happy and safe in school. I work closely with a highly skilled team of Form Tutors who will meet with your child every day, care for them and monitor their progress both academically and socially; encouraging involvement, commitment, and high standards of work and behaviour. I also work closely with Mrs Ord, our Attendance Officer, who monitors their attendance and punctuality on a day to day basis.

As a team we will endeavour to liaise closely with you as parents/carers as we know the research shows that there are measurable benefits when parents/ carers are actively engaged in their child’s learning.

Rewards lunch with the Principal

Huge congratulations to a number of Year 11 pupils for being invited for lunch with Ms Michael for their outstanding effort in all lessons this year. You should be incredibly proud of this; you are a credit to have in my year group! Well done.

Celebration Assembly

In January we had our first celebration assembly where we celebrated the achievements of the year group. Pupils were acknowledged for their progress and effort across lessons and for their wider contributions to the academy through tutor time and additional academy activities.
