All students in the Academy have tutor time between 8.35am and 9.00am. There is a rolling carousel of activities that include extra literacy and numeracy, PSHE and a year group assembly. Our assemblies each week centre around a ‘Big Question’ allowing students to learn and reflect on big issues and current affairs.
Examples of ‘Big Questions’ that will form the basis of our weekly themes include:
- What’s the point in learning another language?
- Who are Birmingham’s black heroes?
- How do you win friends & influence people?
- Is modern art rubbish?
- Should we aim to conquer all fear?
An example of a tutor time schedule is outlined below:
