We are very happy to be part of this vibrant and caring community at Canterbury Academy, where students benefit from a varied and enriched curriculum which promotes independence whilst providing tailored support.
Term 2 October 2023
Welcome to Term 2 and we hope you had an enjoyable half term break!
The term ahead promises to be busy, challenging, varied and - very importantly - enjoyable!
As well as continuing to develop and build on our core functional skills in Maths, English and Computing, we will be starting to think about options for our future. We have researched options for 6th Forms and Colleges, including visiting a wide range of providers in school time.
As you will see in the term 2 timetable attached, Mondays will be our time for visiting a vast array of post 16 providers, which the students are very excited about. We will make sure that students are able to record their thoughts about each provider so that they can share this information with you.
Most students have applied for bus passes and we are looking forward to getting these and undertaking some travel training opportunities.
Some of our students will start their Duke of Edinburgh Gold programme on Thursday, so we wish them the best of luck!
All students will be continuing to work towards City & Guilds Entry Level qualifications in English and Maths, as well as OCR Entry Level qualifications in English/Life and Living Skills.
The full Curriculum Topic Web for the term ahead is also attached below.
Please contact us at any time and I would like to thank you all for your continued support and engagement with your children's learning.
Please use the telephone number or email address below to contact us and we will get back to you as soon as possible.

- PE is on a TUESDAY - with an additional optional football session on a FRIDAY
- Homework and spellings are set weekly on a Friday
- If you have not done so, can I ask that you check your emails – you should have a message inviting you to join Class Dojo. This is a communication platform that teachers, students, and families can use to share what is being learned in the classroom through photos and messages. It is also a way of showing you how well your child is doing in terms of rewards and can really motivate students.
- Your child will have access to a variety of home learning resources and activities and logins for all of these will be sent home. These include Active Learn, Studyladder, Times Tables Rock Stars and Xello.
