School Ethos

We believe that our school should support our pupils and pupils to prepare them for the future by providing a framework of the core values, skills and knowledge that they will need to grow both socially and individually.

Our core purpose is to promote positive behaviour and provide a continuum of support for young people with behavioural, emotional and social difficulties. We will strive to help our pupils develop into mature, successful young adults.

Our aims are

  • To endeavour to transform pupils’ behaviour and motivation and to develop the whole child spiritually, emotionally and intellectually.
  •  To provide all pupils with an appropriate and considered range of opportunities for them to gain personal fulfilment through learning. thus enabling them to make a successful return to mainstream education or enter into continued education and/or employment
  • To deliver a broad and balanced curriculum to maximise each pupils’ potential for further learning in addition to the development of employment skills
  • To promote the educational and social inclusion of our pupils by working in partnership with schools, parents, carers, specialist agencies and the wider community.

We do this by

  • Respecting and valuing each other and in working cooperatively.
  • Developing an understanding of personal strengths and weaknesses and increasing self-respect and self-discipline.
  • Fostering an appreciation and understanding of the core values of truth, hard work, compassion and consideration.
  • Providing a structured and secure learning environment
  • Enabling pupils to accept greater personal responsibility for their own actions and to manage their own behaviours more effectively.
  • Promoting opportunities for all through a challenging and appropriate curriculum.
  • Providing pupils with the opportunity to access nationally recognised accreditations.
