Ensuring safety in our school

At the City of Derby Academy we take safeguarding and safety very seriously. It is important that we continue to review all our procedures, taking into account even those events that are very unlikely to occur. As part of this process, we have introduced a new procedure called “lockdown”.

I am writing to inform you that we will be practicing this procedure on Wednesday 24th October.

Student Photo Orders

October 2018

Year 7-10 – Students were given their photo proof on the day to take home. If you would like to place an order please send them in to student services no later than Wednesday 25th October. After this time, you will need to post your orders direct to Tempest Photography (details are on the form which your child was given on the day).

Year 11 individual/group photo proofs will be delivered direct to school by post and handed out to students. I will update you on the order deadline date shortly.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.
