Promoting Outstanding Achievement for all

As a staff we work in partnership with parents and carers, taking our responsibility very seriously to provide a personalised education that breaks down barriers to learning and equipping students for the next stage in their lives.

The underlying philosophy that underpins all that we do in our academy is that students learn best when they feel valued, where their barriers to learning are understood and catered for, where learning is creative and meaningful and where they are active participants in their learning journey.

Our team of fabulously committed and highly trained staff work together in creating this positive environment, we are lucky enough to work alongside physiotherapists, CAMHs, speech therapists, medical and social agencies. We believe that working in partnership enables us to provide the best and achieve an outstanding provision for pupils, parents and staff.

We are very proud of our Academy and the work we do in supporting pupils and students. Every one of our pupils and students brings their own unique energy into the academy. In turn we ensure that they receive the highest quality provision delivered through a well matched curriculum, resources, behaviour support and an adapted environment, all delivered by the immensely capable, trained and effective staff.

At the Russett School, every pupil and student are valued as an individual. Our mission is Promoting Outstanding Achievement for all which we achieve through the 6 C’s.
