Values and Ethos

Our prime goal is to enable all our children to achieve their full potential. We do this through assessing each child’s needs and then tailoring the environment and curriculum to support each child’s learning and development.

It is essential that our school is safe for all, both physically and emotionally. We aim to foster the emotional development of all within the school by valuing, supporting and respecting the children and staff.

We recognise the importance of highly trained staff to enable us to fulfil our aims and have rigorous continual professional development for all staff.

The school is supported by a range of professionals, which includes the nursing service, physiotherapists, occupational therapists, speech and language therapists, teachers for the visual and hearing impaired, and a dentist.

The school staff and the external specialist team aim to work together to fully support our families.

For more information about our school, feel free to have a look through this website. It’s no replacement for speaking directly with us however, so please make contact by calling 0114 272 6165 or e-mailing

We look forward to hearing from you.
