Raising Attainment

Raising Attainment – Target Setting

Mintlaw Academy is committed to raising the standard of attainment for its pupils.. A new initiative has been introduced to support pupils achieve their best potential.

In all subjects from S4-S6 all pupils will be issued with a target from their teachers which will be closely monitored throughout the session.

Pupils who are not working at their expected level will be offered additional support and strategies to get them “back on track” early and before the exams.

The role of parents is vital in this and it would be helpful if these targets and current level of performance is discussed at home.

British Schools Judo success

Morgan Macdonald, S3 pupil at Mintlaw Academy, was one of the 565 pupils taking part in the British Schools Judo Championships in Sheffield recently.  Morgan took part in the 55kg category and won the bronze medal.   Morgan is now ranked 20th in Britain.  He was delighted with his performance and the school is proud of his achievement at a national level.  Morgan is also part of the Mintlaw Academy Under 15 football squad which is enjoying a very successful season.Morgan MacDonald
