Vision & Ethos

At Ravenshall we aim to enable all our pupils to feel safe, secure and valued. We support them to reach their full potential, to make positive contributions placing our pupils at the centre of our agenda.

At Ravenshall School we aim to promote equality of opportunity for every member of the school community regardless of gender, race or disability.

It is our wish to provide an experience of living within a community where understanding and respecting the needs of other people are emphasised. Pupils are given a voice and are encouraged to play an active participation in their education process. It values and recognises the important role that the staff, governors, parents/carers and the wider community play in supporting the pupils and school life.

Ravenshall was awarded Outstanding judgements in all areas by Ofsted in October 2013. We encourage pupils to be caring towards each other and care for those around them. If they do have any problems they are encouraged to share them with their teachers.

We aim to:

  • Promote equality of opportunity for every member of the school community regardless of gender, race or disability.
  • Develop strong home / school partnerships.
  • Promote a positive and caring environment in which all staff and students feel valued and their successes and achievements are recognised and appreciated.
  • Provide appropriate guidance and support to achieve each student’s maximum independence including preparation for adult life.
  • Help each individual develop his / her abilities to the full.
  • Help students to enjoy fulfilling and rewarding lives.

Educationally we aim to:

Assess each student’s needs and develop appropriate teaching programmes to meet those needs.

Offer all students a broad, balanced, relevant and differentiated curriculum.

Promote and develop good study habits and attitudes and, where appropriate, to involve the students in the planning and recording of their own work.

Socially and morally we aim to:

  • Provide an experience of living in a community.
  • Emphasise the need to respect and understand others.
  • Establish clear moral standards where students consider what is right or wrong and take responsibility for their own actions.
  • Provide a range of opportunities for individuals to develop areas of interest through leisure activities.
  • Gain skills, knowledge and attitudes relevant to the world in which we live.
  • Prepare our students for adulthood.
