Learning about staying safe online is very important. At Outwood Academy Adwick we make sure our students are aware of the risks to safety that are online and what to do to stay safe.
We are committed to improving E-Safety not only in school but at home as well.

GCSEPod provides podcasts which you can watch online or download to play later on your iPods, iPhones, Blackberry and Android devices and tablets. All podcasts are enhanced with text and images and are designed to support students in the classroom, with their homework and during exam time.
So many students at Outwood Academy Adwick already have mobile technology in their pockets and we hope to harness this existing technology to engage all students with their studies in an innovative way. GCSEPod has already been proven to have a significant impact on A*-C performance and we aim to make it an integral part of learning for every GCSE student studying at the academy. Podcasts are organised into subjects and you can further tailor your searches to forthcoming examinations.
Students can follow the link to GCSEPod at the bottom of this webpage. They will be taken to a registration page where they can logon using the drop down boxes.
If you are a former student of Outwood Academy Adwick, we want to hear from you!
Your experiences since leaving could help to inspire our current students in making decisions about their future. We’d love you to join our alumni network and stay connected with the Academy.
We’ve partnered with the national education charity Future First, who specialise in helping academies like ours to stay connected with their former students.
You can choose how and when you help – perhaps you can act as a career and education role model, provide work experience or become a mentor.
It doesn’t matter when you left us, whether you’re in further education or employment, whether you still live nearby or have moved further away, there are still ways you can help.
In order to sign up, just follow this link and fill in the online form – we promise it will only take a couple of minutes:

How has the LPPA helped Outwood Academy Adwick?
“The LPPA process has helped us focus on identifying the fundamental areas of staff and teacher relationships that need a change at a whole school level. This focus has then let us plan, both strategically and practically, to improve how the school meets parents’ needs so they in turn help their children’s learning. This, linked with our new mentoring systems, has led to a significant rise in standards across the school over the period.”
