Our school family is centred around the belief that we are all unique learners of equal value and loved by God.
- Inspire confidence and creativity within a forward thinking environment.
- Equip all learners to develop their academic, emotional, spiritual and moral potential.
Our pupils are happy, well rounded life-long learners. Our Shipley Values guide us in achieving our vision Love, Honesty, Thankfulness, Forgiveness, Resilience, Respect
We are a fully inclusive school that aims to ensure all pupils achieve their potential, personally, socially, emotionally and academically in all areas of the curriculum, regardless of gender, ethnicity, religion, sexual identity, physical ability or educational needs.
We value all children and aim to ensure that they reach their potential by offering a broad and balanced curriculum and having high expectations of every pupil.
We adhere to the Special Educational Needs and Disabilities Code of Practice (2014) stating that all children and young people are entitled to an education that enables them to make progress so that they:
- achieve their best
- become confident individuals living fulfilling lives, and
- make a successful transition into adulthood
We believe that all children with Special Educational Needs must have their needs recognised and assessed, through a whole-school approach, with appropriate and timely intervention put in place through an assess, plan, do, review cycle. All staff have due regard to general duties to promote disability equality.
The school provides appropriate manipulatives and in-class support enabling all children to access the whole curriculum, both within the Early Years Foundation Stage and the National Curriculum. This is delivered through comprehensive, well-informed Quality First Teaching and an on-going, adaptive approach where communication between staff members, parents/carers and pupils is paramount to our success. We implement the Christian, inclusive, SEND principles adopted by our academy trust, BDAT (Bradford Diocesan Academies Trust).
The school delivers an appropriate curriculum to:
- Provide suitable learning challenges
- Meet the pupils diverse learning needs
- Remove the barriers to assessment and learning
