Our new ‘Rewards Words’

In line with the changes to our ‘Values and Ethos’ of RESPECT, the school community has adopted new ‘Rewards Words’. The 5 words are known as LORIC and are:

LEADERSHIP
e.g. time management, problem-solving
ORGANISATION
e.g. showing commitment, working under pressure
RESILIENCE
e.g. making decisions, acting responsibly, collaborating
INITIATIVE
e.g. creativity and seeing the value in being of service to others
COMMUNICATION
e.g. editing, presenting, matching form and content to the audience

 

These will be used by staff to reward students for academic performance, effort, community work, work in tutor activities, events and visits, and coaching and mentoring.

Form Time activities and PSHE

Pixl Edge LogoAs of September 2017, we will be introducing The PiXL Edge to further enhance the excellent pastoral and PSHE programme we currently offer.

We have achieved an Outstanding Ofsted thematic inspection and we want to further develop what we offer our students.

Students will now be able to qualify for certificates for the work they undertake in form and community work. There are 3 levels:

 

Level 1
Apprentice
Y7 to Y9
Level 2
Graduate
Y10 to Y11
Level 3
Master
Y12 to Y13

 

At each level, there are a variety of approved activities that students can undertake for each of the key attributes. We anticipate that each level will take between one and three years to complete. Level 3 will allow students to claim UCAS points for their university applications.

 

Exciting opportunities!

ACADEMY REIGN IN SPAINDAFC-1200x900

30th June 2017 By Richard Harvey

Coach Mike Sandmann’s Dover Academy swept all before them as they won the KOMM MIT international football tournament, the Copa Cataluna, on Thursday evening.

 

Sandmann’s youngsters did it in style too, going through the tournament undefeated after winning four of their five games and drawing the other 0-0.

 

They also did it without conceding a goal.

 

The Academy lifted the trophy after beating the Spanish defending champions 3-0 in the final with Jack Smith, Jack Cussen and Joshua Spence scoring the goals.

 

To cap off a memorable week, Ben Cardwell was named Player of the Tournament.

 

Cardwell finished Dover’s leading scorer with four goals to his name.

 

Not surprisingly, Sandmann was thrilled the performance of his young squad.

 

He said: “They adapted to the new conditions they were playing in and it was a real credit to them for the way they performed.“

 

To go through a tournament, let alone a game, without conceding a goal is a fantastic effort.

 

“This result bodes extremely well for our future too as most of the players are in their first year with us.”

 

Well done to each and everyone of you!!

1Year 10 Enterprise Day

This year’s enterprise day for Year 10 is an innovative idea, designed to better prepare our students for the challenges of the academic year ahead. The inspiration behind the day comes from Kent’s most popular attraction ‘The Panic Room’ in Gravesend which champions the ethos behind ‘mindset’ and the belief of what we are capable of achieving.

 

We aim to help students develop their understanding of their own approach to thinking and learning by helping them understand the differences between fixed and growth mindsets.

 

 

Friday 30th June: Please note should Sports day be cancelled due to bad weather then the Year 10 Enterprise Day will also need to be postponed.

Sean studied at The Abbey School during 2010-2012 whilst playing for the Football Academy.

"This is a fantastic achievement for Sean and we couldn't be prouder at the Football Academy. The Academy provides students with the opportunity to improve and develop as footballers whilst gaining an excellent education"

 

"Sean is a great example for any young players coming through the system that has aspirations of being a professional footballer"

 

"Sean's work ethic has made his dream a reality and we will continue to track his progress"

 

The Abbeys Schools Ethos of 'Be the best you can be' could not be more fitting at the moment.

 

Well done Sean!
