All schools in Steel River Academy Trust, are an open, supportive and work as a professional team who are committed to ensuring that every child succeeds. We all aim to create a positive atmosphere of trust, mutual respect and high expectations between pupils, staff, parents/carers and other professionals.  

We have high academic/vocational and technical ambition for all pupils and our SEND children will not be offered a reduced curriculum.  

We are determined to ensure that we provide a happy, safe and calm environment where children behave well and develop into confident, creative and independent learners. 

Steel River schools aim to ensure that all children’s individual needs are met so that they are able to achieve their educational potential and are committed to providing, for each pupil, the best possible environment for learning. 

We believe that wherever possible, children have an equal right to an inclusive education which enables them to fully develop their personal, social and intellectual potential and to experience success every single day.  We understand the importance of targeted, appropriate intervention to promote achievement. 

We recognise that many pupils will have special needs at some time during their school life. In implementing this policy, we believe pupils will be helped to overcome their difficulties. In our schools, every teacher is a teacher of every child, including those with special educational needs.
