We are very proud of our school. Firbeck is a special place where we seek to meet the best interests of the individual children in our care.

By providing a caring ethos within a wide range of learning opportunities, staff aim to enthuse children to enjoy learning whilst developing the skills which will support them in growing up to be caring, independent, responsible people and lifelong learners.

This is expressed in our mission statement:

‘Sowing the Seeds for Life-long Learning’

and the ambition to ‘Work Hard and Be Kind’.

Firbeck Academy Focus Provision for deaf children specifically caters for the needs of deaf children as an integral part of the mainstream school. It provides support from a range of specialist staff that ensures the needs of the deaf pupils are fully met within the daily life of the school.

The culture and ethos of the school promotes the inclusion and achievement of deaf children. The Focus Provision is staffed with two teachers of the deaf and specialist teaching assistants and has dedicated spaces for teaching and learning.
