I am very proud to be the Executive Headteacher of Arbour House School and College because together with staff, students, parents and carers, we will build a strong community which is built on the core values of trust, positive regard, shared learning and equality.
Our educational facilities will cater for pupils from 5-16 in the school and from 16-25 in the college. Children and young people who will come to Arbour House will have a range of complex needs including ASD, SLD and MLD.
We will aim to be happy and vibrant school where young people are at the heart of what we do in order to ensure they can flourish and reach their full potential.
Our aims are:
To provide an alternative and bespoke education for pupils and students with complex social and communication needs, taking account of the individual strengths and interests;
Ensure that pupils and students have a safe and nurturing environment where they can achieve their outcomes;
Provide a high quality educational experience for each pupil and student;
Offer the opportunity for all pupils and students to engage in their local community and be valued and contribute with confidence;
Provide a curriculum that is bespoke, well researched, and practical;
Develop and promote partnerships that have the values and ethos of Arbour House School and College, where we can promote best practice and share knowledge;
Ensure that the moral, cultural and spiritual awareness of each pupil and student is developed in a way that makes sense to them;
Develop and promote skills for pupils which will support them to live more independently and give them skills for adulthood that will give them choices and the ability to be a valued member of their community;
Enable pupils and students to have the opportunity to have relationships which are promoted positively and safely.
I extend a warm invitation to visit Arbour House and see for yourself.
