We are a family dedicated to caring for our children. Our classes have Teachers and TAs, so there is 1 adult to every 15 pupils.
We know that each of our young people will face different challenges as they grow up, be that academically, socially, emotionally or developmentally, therefore we want to do everything we can to help them through whatever life throws their way. For this purpose we have set up a comprehensive pastoral care system, designed to support students in all aspects of school life.
- Building relationships with peers
- Rewards for positive behavior
- Rewards for attendance and punctuality
- Partnerships with external organisations for those more challenging problems
We know that the most effective learners are happy learners, therefore from the start of your child's journey with us through to the end of their time in our home we aim to make sure they feel supported, encouraged and motivated to learn. We do this by introducing them to their class, and giving them a tour of their new home even before they have formally started with us in September.
We want our halls and corridors to feel like a home-from-home for your children. Our academy is a family - thriving with healthy relationships and positive influences. Our class teachers and learning mentors take the time to get to know each of their students, finding out what your child is interested in, where their aspirations lie and what hopes they have for their year.
