Our Aims


Our aims are for all pupils to be Safe, Happy and Prepared for their next steps by:


  • providing the best possible education for every pupil, in a safe environment, with support to promote independence with learning, care and guidance-needs.
  • providing all pupils with the key skills they need to communicate with others and express their wants, needs and likes.
  • providing clear guidance for all pupils to manage their behaviour through clear expectations, rewards and sanctions.
  • ensuring pupils are taught how to keep themselves and others safe at home in the community and online.
  • ensuring high standards of teaching throughout the school day, providing an exciting curriculum and a positive and attractive learning environment for every pupil, group and class.
  • providing a pathway at the end of KS4 and the end of post-16 for every young person, preparing them for further learning and life as an adult.
  • keeping staff informed about school matters and consulting with them on significant changes in school organisation, curriculum development, policies and procedures.
  • keeping parents and carers informed of their child’s progress, wellbeing at school and strategies to support at home.
  • using robust evidence and working closely with staff and governors in evaluating the school’s performance and planning our strategic direction.
