Our School Aims
At Chellow Heights
‘Every Child Matters’
'Every Child is Different'
as part of the co-location work we did with Heaton Primary our co-located school with Chellow West we came up with the phrase
'All Equal, All Different'
which we use as a school to celebrate our inclusive and personalised approach learning.
We aim to:
- provide a warm, safe and secure environment in which everyone is valued and respected, feels confident, included, happy and can enjoy life.
- provide everyone with a communication system which helps them to be independent, make decisions, be sociable and have friends and allows them to share and achieve their personal goals.
- ensure that pupils have a voice in all aspects of school life.
- ensure that pupils are as healthy as possible and have opportunities to learn about making healthy choices.
- offer a curriculum which is stimulating, challenging and fun and offers opportunities to develop independent mobility and life skills as well as curiosity and knowledge.
- promote equality of opportunity across the wide range of needs in the school.
- enable individuals to become informed responsible and caring through the use of appropriate learning and teaching styles and practice.
- prepare our pupils for adulthood in order for them to become caring, confident and responsible citizens in the community.
- promote a climate of high expectation in which the achievements and successes of all are celebrated.
- foster an inclusive practice within the school and its wider community.
- create a partnership as a school with our parents and carers and all other professionals working with our pupils and students.
- evaluate current working practices to ensure work-life balance, staff well-being and good continuing professional development.
