Key Stage 3 Learning
Teachers and leaders want pupils to do well in all respects. Ofsted 2019
The Lower Academy has always enjoyed a positive reputation for the way we care for and support learners. Everything we do is focused around the child and our aim is to give our students the tools to be successful at the Upper Academy when they move into Year 10, as well as for adult life.
Lessons across the Academy start at 8:30am; at the Lower Academy we greet students at the gate from 8:15am to check they are ready to learn and have the right kit for learning. This is a fantastic opportunity for parents and carers to speak to staff about their children’s progress.
The Basildon Lower Academy continues to be a good school. Ofsted 2019
Life at the Lower Academy is exciting; every day is full of wonderful learning opportunities designed to bring out the very best in all of our students.
Leaders have now planned more carefully what pupils should learn in each subject. They have also improved the quality of teaching. Ofsted 2019

Teachers use questioning skilfully to check and deepen pupils’ understanding. Teachers break down learning into smaller chunks and choose activities well, helping pupils remember important knowledge and skills. Ofsted 2019
