Washwood Heath Academy Passport
At Washwood Heath Academy, we believe in broadening the horizons for all of our students, so that they get a sense of life in the wider world. The aim is to equip students with skills and experiences which will allow them to contextualise their understanding of the world around them more thoroughly.
The Washwood Heath Academy Passport spans from EYFS, right through to Year 13 and aims to specify a ‘guaranteed’ set of experiences that will be offered to every child at Washwood in each stage of their journey through education with us. The experiences may be small, and in school – for example, in Year 1, we make sure children get to plant a seed, look after it, and watch it grow – right through to wider world experiences in the Secondary phase, including trips beyond the bounds of Birmingham to explore National culture, residential experiences, and international experiences.
Our Passport is currently being refined into its final form, but it goes hand in hand with our focus on Cultural Capital – more info can be found by clicking here.
We believe you are entitled to a rich and varied set of experiences during your time at school. We seek to expand your minds, and develop in you the resilience and independence to explore the world around you with confidence. This passport sets out the experiences you can expect to have at each stage in your school journey.
