Harris Academy Sutton is pleased to announce the launch of our very own Key Stage Three qualification: the I.I.D. Award. The Award will focus on some of the key skills and personal attributes that all young people strive to develop as they move through their schooling.

In particular we are looking to develop a sense of what it means to display the core values of Integrity, Innovation and Discovery which lie at the heart of all we try to achieve here at Harris Sutton.

The Award has five different strands that are assessed over Years 7 and 8. Two of the strands, Enrichment and Progress, are already underway. The remaining strands will be launched over the next three terms. These are:

Student Skills Passport:

Students will…

Engage in a skills passport which will help them develop skills required outside of an education setting.

Undertake a range of weekly skills ranging from cooking a meal for their family to donating clothes to charity.

Community Engagement:

Students may choose to…

  •  Engage with the local community
  •  Tackle challenges the community face
  •  Promote stewardship, responsibility and social integration
  •  Participate in social action for the benefit of their community

The Extended Project:

Students will complete an extended project of their own choosing.

With guidance from their form tutors, they will select their own topic to research over the course of the term and will be able to present their findings in a number of different forms.

There will be a wide variety of choice from researching a movement in art, Science or Literature to researching a topic of interest and presenting a speech.

It is our aim that the extended project will promote independent working and thinking skills and will serve as an opportunity for students to work beyond the confines of a given task.

Families will play a key part in the delivery of the strands listed above. After Easter we will be launching the first strand, the Student Skills Passport. I will write to you again to explain how this will work and how you will be able to support your child in securing a great outcome.

At the end of Year 8 you will be invited with your child to a Graduation Ceremony. Each child will receive recognition of their achievements over Years 7 and 8 and receive their I.I.D certificate.

We very much look forward to working with you and your child to ensure that they reach the very best outcomes at the end of Year 8.
