Sixth Form Mission Statement

Inspiring our young adults to take responsibility for themselves, demonstrating pride in their community and making a positive contribution to the world.

Sixth Form Vision

Students at Aylesford School  Sixth Form have high aspirations and expectations of themselves in order to succeed in their future careers.

Students are creative, driven and dynamic and use their initiative to break down any barriers encountered on their school journey; students have the confidence and resilience to always ‘find a way’ in every aspect of their lives. As a consequence, outcomes (Progress, attainment, destinations, retention, English and Maths) for students at KS5 are better than those nationally.

parentpay

 Aylesford School operates a bio-metric system for cashless catering. The system enables students to pay in advance for their meals by crediting their account on cash machines situated in the dining areas. The system also enables parents and carers to credit their child’s account by using ParentPay, a system which allows accounts to be credited online or by using PayPoint centres located in local retailers displaying the Paypoint sign. Further information regarding ParentPay is available at  www.parentpay.com.

The bio-metric system uses the fingerprint of the student and the software calculates a huge digital number from the image, and it is the number itself which is stored as a personal identification number.  The actual fingerprint image is NOT stored.  When a student uses the fingerprint scanner, the scanner recalculates the number and recognises the student.  Such software is now being used worldwide as a means of providing additional personal security.

Students and parents can be reassured that this system has a very high level of security and that it is not possible to reconstruct the original fingerprint. The system does contain an option for the use of a PIN number instead of the bio-metric for those students whose parents specifically advise the school of

  ShowMyHomework

A good, well-managed homework programme helps children and young people to develop the skills and attitudes they will need for successful lifelong learning. Homework also supports the development of independent learning skills and provides parents with an opportunity to take part in their children's education.  Ownership of homework by the subject teacher provides opportunities to reinforce the high expectations which are formed and established within the classroom.

Learning at home is an essential part of a good education. Regular homework is important as it gives students the opportunity to practice at home the tasks covered in class, and helps the student to work towards improving important learning and thinking skills. It also helps children and young people to become confident and independent in their learning, which will help throughout their time at school and later in adult life.

Homework enables students to:

  • Consolidate and extend work covered in class or prepare for new learning activities.
  • Access resources not available in the classroom.
  • Develop research skills.
  • Have an opportunity for independent work.
  • Show progress and understanding.
  • Provide feedback in the evaluation of teaching.
  • To enhance their study skills e.g. planning, time management and self-discipline.
  • To take ownership and responsibility for
