We offer our staff a supportive professional environment with a level of freedom from the
constraints of mainstream schooling rarely encountered. Our ethos is to use the latest evidence
based practice to meet the wider needs of our pupils, and to develop them in all areas of their
development. Academic progress will always rightly be a major focus of our work, but it must not be
the sole focus.
We believe in supporting our staff to personally develop and learn new skills, and have a great CPD
programme for anyone new to SEND, from apprenticeships right through to newly qualified teachers
and supporting staff to undertake their Masters programme.
Working in teams allows for close collaboration between classes and practice sharing across the
school. We are always looking for new skills to add to our repertoire, and welcome applicants from
both the mainstream and special school sectors.
Being part of a multi academy trust also gives wider opportunities for staff to grow and develop their
careers in a wide range of areas, from teaching and learning, to pastoral management, parental
support and leadership development.
