To the Parent/Carer of Laisterdyke Leadership Academy student
As you are aware Laisterdyke Leadership Academy is now part of the Tauheedul Education Trust. We have very high expectations of all our learners, of their progress and of their behaviours. Unfortunately on Friday afternoon some of our Year 11 pupils chose to celebrate the end of their examinations in an inappropriate manner. As other pupils left for the end of the day some of them chose to get involved.
This kind of behaviour falls well below our expectations. The majority of our pupils were shocked by the behaviour and are disappointed in the image these pupils gave of our school to the community.
I know that you will support Tauheedul taking a tougher stance on the behaviour of pupils. With this in mind my Senior Leadership Team and myself will take responsibility for all detentions set from now until the end of term. If your child is given a detention you will be contacted directly. If there is a need to have further detentions then I will ask you as a parent to come into school to discuss your child's behaviour with myself.
Pupils at Laisterdyke are encouraged to make the right choices even when there are difficult circumstances. They are encouraged to take responsibility for their mistakes and the mistakes of others and we learn from these mistakes to continuously improve.
