Frequently Asked Questons

The School Day

What time does school start?

School starts promptly at 8:30 am. The bell rings at this time and students are expected in school. Latecomers should enter via the student services reception entrance. Our school Educational Welfare officer will welcome latecomers and, if necessary, issue a lateness detention.  

When do we have assembly?

Each year has formal assembly every week in the main school hall. These are usually led by a member of the Senior Leadership Team, focusing on the "Theme of the Week". The Director of Learning calls a second additional assembly on another morning often to celebrate year successes, on special occasions or to look at key year group issues..

How long is the school day?

The school day runs from 8:30 am until 3:00 pm. Students are registered in the morning in their tutor bases. The 30 minutes registration time is an opportunity for staff to check student planners and equipment, attend assembly and read. This is an important reading opportunity that ALL students engage in. Students can read their own books and newspapers provided by the school in addition to taking part in the reading orientated activities organised by our reading leaders. Burnt Mill Academy places a strong emphasis on reading throughout years 7-11. Please see the separate tab under "academy  information" for details about the length of lessons for different year groups.

How long are the lessons?

Lessons are 1 hour long for KS3 (Years 7 & 8 students) and 100 minute long for KS4 students (Years 9, 10 & 11).


School Rules

What should I do if I will be absent from school (due to sickness/family problems/hospital appointment etc.)?

Please ring the school as soon as possible to let us know about your son/daughter's absence. Please provide a note addressed to your child's form tutor upon his /her return. A note is required for our records. Parents should also provide the school with their mobile number and/or email address so we can update you via our 'parentmail' system on any issues regarding their child's attendance and send your important messages from time to time. if a student is absent without contact from home having been made, a parentmail email or text will be generated and sent to parents.

What is the discipline like?

The school's 'behaviour for learning' system is displayed around the school in prominent locations and is available on the school website under "Academy policies" Students are rewarded for their achievements but there are consequences too for behaviour which interupts the learning ethos of our school. 


Equipment

What happens if I forget my PE kit?

The best policy is alway to find the member of staff and explain the situation. 'One off' problems can be dealt with - it is when it becomes a persistant problem that we begin to get concerned as regular physical activity is so important and valued by the school. The PE staff always have clean kit they can offer you so you can participate

What should I do if I find someone elses property?

All lost property should be handed in to the 'Student Services' reception.

Do I have to buy my own equipment?

You are asked to buy some standard equipment to ensure you learn effectively. You will be expected to have a pen and pencil (several are advised) rubber, sharpener and ruler. These are the basics. Individual faculties may have additional requirements e.g. calculator in mathematics. Equipment is available for purchase at student servcies reception.

What happens if I forget my books?

If you forget your books, approach your teacher first. Telling them may well mean they can help you out, especially if it is a one off.

Will I have somewhere to put my school things?

Subject to availability, students can rent a locker which is subject to a deposit. Year 7 are given priority. The team at 'Student Services' provide this service. Your tutor base can also be a good place to keep some of your things. Your tutor will tell you more.


Getting to School?

Can I come to school on my bike?

We encourage students to come to school by bike.There are safe, locked up sheds available by the student services entrance.

What do I do and where do I go at lunchtimes?

We operate staggerd breaks and lunches. KS3 and KS4 students have separate lunches and breaks. Students can also eat outside and under our 'canopy' on the upper playground adjacent to Student Services.

What homework will I get?

Homework is set daily and the Academy places high importance on its completion to the best standard possible. AT LEAST one piece of high quality homework is expected from each students' subject once a wek. This the MINIMUM expectation.

What happens if there is a fire?

Each classroom has the fire instructions clearly displayed. When a continuous bell rings you should follow your teacher's instructions carefully. The important thing is not to run or to panic but to leave the building with your teacher in an orderley manner, leaving by the nearest exit.
