School Aims

Our aim is to give our pupils a voice so that they

  • Have fun and enjoy school
  • Learn things that will be useful upon leaving school
  • Are physically and mentally healthy
  • Feel safe, secure and important
  • Are understood by friends, staff and parents/carers
  • Have time to be themselves and time to express their feelings
  • Behave appropriately
  • Are able to tell the truth
  • Have respect and care for others
  • Are a positive influence and member of the community

We will support our pupils by

  • Supporting them during the school day and out of school when necessary
  • Understanding their difficulties and teaching them how to overcome challenges
  • Teaching topics and subjects that are relevant and enable them to achieve their potential
  • Giving praise and encouragement
  • Explaining clearly what is expected
  • Listening to them, even when staff are very busy
  • Offering support and enabling them with the skills to prepare for the future

"All staff are skilled at supporting pupils to manage their behaviour and to develop self-confidence. Adults share a commitment to ensure that all pupils feel safe, enjoy school and are proud of what they achieve."

"Pupils, many of whom have had negative experiences of education, develop positive attitudes to learning and are achieving well. Pupils leave school with a range of worthwhile qualifications that prepare them well for the next stage in their education, training or employment."
