At STAR we are committed to providing excellence for all our pupils. Our aim is to support every child within the Academy to achieve through a nurturing and inclusive ethos. We welcome all children into our community and aim to support them to reach their full “STAR” potential. We were awarded the Inclusion Quality Mark accreditation and National Centre of Excellence status in June 2015.
Our Inclusion Team, led by our Inclusion Manager (SENCO), deliver support and a range of educational interventions throughout the Academy day. We also place a high profile on the social and emotional well being of our pupils and our Well being Team, including our Academy Counsellor provide “Time to Talk” sessions that our pupils can personally arrange to speak with a member of the team or parents can request sessions to be delivered with the Counsellor. Our Star Learning room led by a qualified teacher supports children through a nurture style approach on a daily basis. Children who require additional support can access this approach on a part time basis dependent upon needs. Parenting support is also offered through parenting programmes such as Family Links, family workshops including budgeting, healthy lifestyles to name a few. 1:1 parenting support sessions are also offered to support the global development of our pupils.
By October half term (2016) our Community Well Being Centre will be complete and this will be a fabulous addition to the support we can offer our pupils, parents, families and the local community. Watch this space….
We aim to unlock the star in all our children.
