Achievement in a Caring Environment
Our school motto is Achievement in a Caring Environment. Everyone in our school community makes a positive contribution and that is why we believe we are an inclusive school.
We have a Student Support Team to offer help and advice to students who are feeling vulnerable or need help with issues such as self-esteem or anger-management. Our Special Educational Needs and English as an Additional Language teams are hugely skilled and experienced in helping those youngsters to flourish.
We have a strong School Council; its members bring a variety of issues to discuss and the Council has offered many excellent ideas to the school, including the design and furnishing of various parts of the building.
We are a school that listens, and we believe that people feel valued if they have a voice and can make a difference. Our students are encouraged to become independent learners and thinkers. When they have something to say, it is generally worth listening to.
We are a community with students from many different backgrounds, but there is one common factor which brings them together: they are all Limehurst Academy students and we want the very best for all of them. Here everyone is valued equally.
However, inclusion is not just about the students. We want parents and carers to feel that they are part of Limehurst. We are committed to effective and regular communication with parents through Parents’ Evenings, Newsletters and other means. We also have two Community Liaison Officers who work to strengthen links with parents.
We are fortunate to have an extremely supportive group of governors who work closely with the school but they also ask challenging questions to ensure that the school maintains its outstanding qualities.
