Welcome


Welcome to the Fraserburgh Academy School Website.  I hope you find this interesting and informative about our work with our young people in our school community.

The new session is fully underway.  The main priority for the school this year is to revisit our approaches to positive behaviour and ethos, and we will be working with all staff, pupils and partners to revise our behaviour policy, school values and school rules.  Our new pupil leadership structure is an exciting new initiative as it is providing learners with the opportunity to be more involved in decision making processes within the school.  The School Executive, comprising the School Captain and Vice Captains meet with me on a weekly basis to plan pupil leadership opportunities and involvement across all years. We will also be working this year to strengthen links with the local community.

Learning remains at the heart of our school and our mantra continues to be ‘lessons are for learning’, with great emphasis placed on providing engaging learning experiences, focused intervention and effective tracking of progress.  We recognise that what happens in the classroom is key to the success of our students and to the continuation of our upward rise in attainment.  It is where we build knowledge, develop skills and promote positive attitudes to learning.  We have highly qualified staff who provide a supportive and encouraging environment where every child is known and learning flourishes.

This is an exciting year for Fraserburgh Academy and we look forward to working with all our partners in the learning and development of all our young people.

🚗🚌 PARENTS/CARERS - IMPORTANT NOTICE Parking/Picking Up Pupils On School Drive

As you know we have a number of buses who park in the bus lane from 3pm onwards to pick up pupils at 3.25pm to transport them home. Over the last few weeks a number of buses have had difficulty accessing their assigned spaces on the school drive as parents/carers have parked there. We ask that if you are picking up a young person at the end of the school day that you avoid parking in the assigned bus spaces.

 

Thank you
