Welcome to CE Academy
Our motto is “Freedom to choose a different future” This was chosen by our young people and recognises our belief that everyone should have the opportunity to access a high quality education.
The CE Academy provides alternative education for young people who are permanently excluded from school; dual registered and for school aged parents. We respond to the educational needs of pupils who would otherwise be attending mainstream/special schools. We have positive expectations of behaviour and academic expectations are high and related to young people’s abilities.
We promote both the right to fail and the importance of giving all young people the freedom to choose a different future. We take a holistic approach to education, promoting an ethos and culture built on fairness, equality and mutual respect. This provides an environment in which young people can be encouraged and supported to make the right choices which lead to positive outcomes.
The staff team at CE Academy are committed to ensuring that all of our young people are at the heart of everything we do. They work tirelessly to enable them to make progress with their social and communication skills as well as achieving academic and vocational success.
We provide all young people with a personalised timetable designed to meet their social, emotional and academic needs. The curriculum on offer provides opportunities to develop cultural capital and for both personal development and academic success. We take great pride in ensuring every young person has a destination when they leave us at the end of Year 11.
As Headteacher I am proud to lead an experienced and dedicated group of staff. We pride ourselves on our relationships with our young people, families and communities. Strong relationships and working together are at the heart of our ethos.
As one of the newest members of Tove Learning Trust (TLT) I look forward to benefitting from working in partnership with an established network of schools to continue to provide outstanding opportunities for our young people.
