Home Academy Agreement

Home – WMG Academy Contract

The aim of the agreement is to make clear to learners, parents/carers, staff and governors that they have an equally important part to play in helping each individual learner to make the best use of the opportunities available at the WMG Academy. We believe that success is built upon an open and supportive partnership between our learners, parents, staff and governors. We aim to provide all our learners with stimulating, relevant and challenging learning experiences which will equip them with the employability skills and knowledge to face the challenges of the 21st century.

Learners

  • take ownership of their own actions and performance;
  • respect other learners, staff, visitors and themselves and be aware that racism, intolerance and bullying are unacceptable;
