Service description:
At Friars Academy, we aim to work in partnership with parents, carers and the community to develop confident, responsible, happy, independent, creative and successful young people.

Friars meets the needs of pupils who:
-Have attainments well below the expected range of their peers with additional difficulties that may
include speech and language delay, low self esteem or physical difficulties.
-Have significant learning difficulties
-Have a diagnosis of Autistic Spectrum Disorder that requires structured teaching and may require
discreet provision.

We want our children to grow in confidence and develop a sense of self-discipline and self-esteem within a secure and stimulating environment; where there is respect for each other, for the school, for the local community and for the world in which we live.

Children are encouraged to think for themselves and take responsibility for their work and behaviour. They are given opportunities to work collaboratively and co-operatively with others; to organise, enjoy success, learn from their mistakes and to relish challenges and risks.

Individuals are fostered academically and socially through a stimulating creative curriculum and environment. Students are encouraged to achieve their full potential in all areas with equal opportunities for all regardless of culture, religion or gender.

As the children move through the academy, the opportunities for work outside of the academy environment increase as we endeavour to ensure that our students are ready for transition to the next stages of their lives. Parents and carers play an essential and instrumental role in their child’s education and we strive to involve them at all stages.

Friars Academy is successful in encouraging every child to feel valued in an environment where all achievements, however small, are recognised and celebrated.

Our school ethos is, ‘Every child, Every chance, Every day’
