At Quay Academy we value the individuality of all of the children in our care.
We are committed to giving all of our children every opportunity to achieve the highest of standards. We do this by taking account of pupils’ varied life experiences and needs. We offer a broad and balanced curriculum and have high expectations for all children. The achievements, attitudes and well-being of all our children matter. This policy helps to ensure that this academy promotes the individuality of all our children, irrespective of ethnicity, attainment, age, disability, gender or background.
Our academy aims to be an inclusive school. We actively seek to remove the barriers to learning and participation that can hinder or exclude individual pupils, or groups of pupils. This means that equality of opportunity must be a reality for our children.
The school has very good relationships with the local community and actively welcomes many visitors to school to enhance the education of our children. Relationships with parents are highly valued as we believe that children thrive best when school and home work in partnership. We work closely with a number of community organisations and external agencies to ensure the wellbeing of our children and provide them with a mix of opportunities.
- Local shops and businesses
- Local churches
- Family Support
- Police and Fire Services
- Sporting organisations
- Children Centre
Parents, carers and members of our surrounding area are regularly welcomed into the school for events such as our Christmas Fayre, Easter Bingo, the Summer Fayre and any shows, concerts and performances we hold at the school.
Since joining the David Ross Education Trust, we are now part of a much wider community of schools and academies across the country. These are a mixture of primary and secondary schools and we join together with them for big Trust wide events and share best practice.
