Strong, positive relationships are critically important to provide a safe, secure environment in which all pupils can be happy and successful. The ethos of the school is based on a strong community, maintaining a climate of mutual respect with big dreams and hard work contributing to pupil success.
We believe that all members of the school community should have an equal opportunity to participate fully in the life of the school, free from discrimination or harassment of any kind. Furthermore, a well-ordered, disciplined working environment is a prerequisite for pupils being able to meet the aspirational targets that are set for their educational success.
The school’s core values and expectations of ‘Respect the CTA Way’ is a golden thread through all of our work. Great importance is placed on rewarding positive behaviour in relation to this code and this is built into the school’s house and rewards system. Where conduct falls short of these expectations, steps are taken to address the issue and measures are put in in place to prevent repetition. A very firm line is taken on bullying, with swift intervention, clear communication and appropriate action taken.
We have established a dedicated team that operates from our Progress Hub, in a central area within school. The team comprises of various key personnel, all working collaboratively to provide comprehensive support and guidance to our pupils. The team members include Heads of Year, Pupil Support Officers, SEND team, Assistant Headteacher (Behaviour and Attitudes), Academy Progress Lead and Deputy Headteacher (Culture and Personal Development).
These professionals work together to ensure seamless coordination and collaboration among team members. The central office facilitates quick and easy access to resources, information and expertise, which enhances our ability to provide holistic support to our pupils.
We pride ourselves on the pastoral and academic support we provide to ensure all pupils make progress and achieve their aspirations. Support is more successful in collaboration with parents and carers, and our main motivation for developing and maintaining positive relationships with all of our families.
