Vision and Aims


Learning is consistently challenging and achievable for all pupils. Highly effective monitoring and intervention ensures swift and sustained progress, enabling all pupils to achieve their potential.

UN Convention on the Rights of the Child

As a Gold Rights Respecting School we adhere to the Unicef articles which are embedded throughout our curriculum, policies and procedures.

Article 23:
  You have the right to special education and care if you have a disability, as well as the rights in this Convention, so that you can live a full life.

Article 28:
You have the right to a good quality education. You should be encouraged to go to school to the highest level you can.


At Grange Academy we strive to develop the full potential of everyone within our community. We aim to enable all pupils to:

  • Flourish in a happy, secure and caring environment where pupils and adults work hard and a school community is created which supports all of its members.
  • Develop aspirational and realistic education and life goals.
  • Achieve their full potential by being provided with consistently outstanding learning support. As a result, pupils progress extremely well from their different starting points, attain relevant qualifications, and move very successfully to the next stage of their education.
  • Use and develop literacy and numeracy skills across the whole curriculum.
  • Access a relevant and reflective, broad and balanced curriculum.
  • Develop self-confidence, self-awareness, and an understanding of how to be a successful independent learner. This includes successfully acquiring the skills to manage their own feelings and behaviour, and relate to others well through continued spiritual, moral, social and cultural development.
  • Be free from bullying and discrimination and thrive in a learning environment rich in fairness and equality where they are safe from all forms of abuse, including radicalisation and extremism.
  • Grow in self-sufficiency, with sound knowledge and understanding about keeping themselves healthy, both emotionally and physically, including through exercising and healthy eating.
  • Achieve good personal development and a secure understanding of British values, so that they are well prepared to respect others and contribute to wider society in Britain.
  • Develop employability skills so that they are well prepared to make choices about the next stage of their education, employment, or training on the basis of impartial careers advice and guidance.

We place particular importance on regular and high quality engagement with our pupils’ families and carers in achieving the above.
