We are interested in your views

Ipswich Academy is delighted to offer a Parent Learning Hub which will give parents and carers a chance to gain an insight into the delicate topics being covered in lessons around health and wellbeing, safety, relationships and sex education. Sessions will also be designed to help parents and carers gain confidence in approaching such topics comfortably with their children at home.

The Parent Learning Hub sessions will be informal, led by members of Ipswich Academy staff.  We would also like to ask for your input on the development of these sessions.

Please access the link below to complete a short questionnaire; we would appreciate as many parents and carers as possible giving their input to this, it should only take around two minutes of your time.


If you have any further questions, please contact Amy Cook, Sara Gillespie or Dawn Cullum at the school.

Yours faithfully

PSHE Curriculum

As you are aware, we cover a wide range of topics within our PSHE curriculum to ensure our students have a good understanding of health and wellbeing, the wider world and relationships. Students have openly said they find the sessions covered within the PSHE curriculum ‘hard hitting’ but valuable towards their future lives and decisions.

I am writing to inform you that in the summer term we will be covering the delicate topics of Female Genital Mutilation and Relationship and Sex Education with all students across years 7-10. Both topics will be appropriately pitched for each year group and the staff members leading the sessions fully trained to do so.

If you have any questions or concerns about your child being a part of these sessions, please do not hesitate to contact the school to discuss this.

Yours faithfully,

Amy Cook
