Community

At Atlantic Academy we value the importance of working work with the local and wider community.  We are continually developing opportunities for community cohesion.  Our tri-annual celebration weeks allow children, parents and members of the public to visit the school to celebrate the successes of our students..

We encourage children through our curriculum to help people in the local community by such things as recycling awareness, beach cleans and visits by the choir to Senior Citizens and wider community events.

All of our pupils are encouraged to develop a sense of community by raising money for charity and good causes. Some of the charities we regularly support are:
