Welcome to Barnsley Academy...

Executive Principal’s Welcome

I am both proud and privileged to be leading Barnsley Academy during a period of transition, development and improvement. I was welcomed into the school community in May 2014 and, since that time, I have worked in partnership with school staff, our local community and professional partners to ensure that our Academy is moving rapidly towards becoming a good school.

Our Academy is sponsored by United Learning – a group of schools which aims to provide excellent education to all children and young people across the country. As a United Learning academy, we seek to improve the life chances of all the children and young people we serve and make it our mission to bring out “the best in everyone” – students, staff, parents and the wider community.

We are committed to all of our students receiving personalised support to ensure that each one of them is able to make the progress we know they are capable of. At the heart of our practice is a desire to work with parents and carers to develop an environment which provides a truly holistic and inclusive approach which fosters high expectations and standards at every level.

Our newly formed Senior Leadership Team is excited by the challenges ahead and is uncompromising in its pursuit of excellence as we know that each of our students deserve the very best education we can offer and, it is with this aim, that we are determined to serve our own community.

Miss Read

On Friday 10th June 2016, a group of students supported a Community event at the Kendray and Worsbrough Family Centre in Barnsley. Students performed a selection of Dance pieces to families from the area who were very complementary of our students' work. Pupils worked tirelessly throughout the afternoon and, during a well earned break, joined in to some of the events on offer. A fantastic event where our students did us proud once again. Keep up the great work!

From Mr Hunter

Excellent Homework

The world is a cruel, mean place.

 

Poverty, sadness, loneliness, despair,

These traits follow us everywhere.

In every town, in every city, in every race,

There’s always something that’s out of place.

That makes our world cold,

Makes happiness mould.

Nobody can hide,

Try as they might.

I stare out of the window, watching the world go by,

Somewhere down the road, a child cries.

Walking through the town,

Suddenly I frown.

From where I stand I see

A homeless man looking up at me.

That was when I was struck by lightning,

The experience was all quite frightening.

But from that moment, I knew.

Happy times are far and few.

I shut the door and close it all out,

I couldn’t change it, there was no doubt.

But in my head a dream began to flow

Where it linger and multiply, fester and grow.

I dream a dream that one day,

We hear laughter as children play.

Bang! Was it a bomb?

No, we all know that bombings wrong.

There is no war no fighting, no helicopters.

That was the sound of a party popper

As we dance in the evening sun.

Every human united as one.

On the banquets table, the food is divine

And every person stands patiently in line.

We all get a share

As we know starvation is not fair.

On Sundays church bells ring

Some go, some stay, and the quire sings.

We respect those who goes to a different place

As there is no racism; we respect every race.

Builders work hard and get rid of all the slums.

There are proper houses for everyone.
