Together we strive to provide a caring, structured learning environment in which all pupils can develop academically, socially and emotionally and in which pupils and staff feel safe, secure and valued.

Working in Partnership for Personal Development

We offer a caring, enriching, educational environment for pupils who have experienced difficulties in school. In our school pupils are accepted, valued and feel safe. We assess pastoral and learning needs and plan for progress; ‘learn to achieve’!

Our pupils learn to manage themselves and their relationships with others. We give time to pupils and teach strategies so they can reflect on and reassess their difficulties, build self-esteem and develop meaningful relationships.

We provide an exciting and challenging curriculum designed to capture pupils interest and prepare them for life. We aim to improve each pupil’s academic performance, ability to learn and social and emotional skills so that pupils are able to return to school, further education or enter the world of work.

Every adult is highly motivated and committed to the pupil’s wellbeing. Staff are well trained in the specialist work of supporting vulnerable youngsters and use a variety of appropriate assessment and creative teaching approaches.

We work productively and collaborate with parents, carers, other schools and agencies for the good of all pupils.
