We are a mainstream and inclusive secondary school based in Selston, Nottinghamshire.
One of the strategic anchors as a Trust is to build a compelling culture where all students can succeed regarding of any individual needs.
We focus very much on ensuring that our students are scaffolded to experience a mainstream curriculum offer.
We are committed to ensuring that students with learning difficulties and / or disabilities can access an ambitious, broad and balanced curriculum.
Our approach to inclusion is aligned to our school values of;
Ambition Teamwork Honesty Respect
It is our belief that the entitlement to a broad, balanced, relevant and scaffolded curriculum is a right for all and should not be constrained by age, gender, creed, race, physical disability, special education needs or vulnerability.
This entitlement should be delivered by trained personnel, committed to maximum inclusion, who are able to provide a happy, sensitive, secure and developmental environment in which all individuals are encouraged and enabled to undertake self-development, self-advocacy, respect for self, respect for others and respect for the environment.
Equality of opportunity, thoughtful and effective assessment, parental involvement, and effective teaching appropriate to the needs of the individual and the subject matter should be integral to the planning of educational provision, for all students.
A committed Learning Support Team offers personal support and guidance to students and works hard to ensure students feel settled as soon as they arrive and feel confident that their needs are known and are being met. We exploit a range of information about students to ensure that transition is as smooth as possible.
The Learning Support team are fully committed to supporting all students to achieve the mission of ensuring they are fully prepared to make a special contribution to the world we share.
We want all students to access any enrichment they desire to widen their skill set, to access any trip to increase their confidence and to access the curriculum to allow them to discover their passion and immerse themselves into their chosen subjects
