Head's Message

Welcome to Firbeck Academy with Focused Provision for Deaf Children.

Firbeck Academy is a proud and caring school, a special place where we seek to meet the best interests of the children in our care. By providing a caring ethos within an engaging and challenging curriculum, staff encourage children to enjoy learning whilst developing the skills which will support them in growing up to be caring, independent, responsible people and lifelong learners.

As a school that serves a richly diverse community, we take our responsibility to promote community cohesion, generate a respect for difference and individual rights seriously.

A ‘challenging’ curriculum encourages pupils to reflect upon their role in a diverse society. In all aspects of our curriculum, we reflect and discuss the implications of what it means to be British.

In addition, the school promotes British values through:

  • A school council whose members are actively involved in the democratic process
  • A geography curriculum that covers global citizenship
  • A religious education curriculum that teaches about the shared values that religion can promote

We also believe that we can best achieve the highest possible outcomes for our pupils by working closely with parents and carers. The school doesn't work in isolation and encourages all parents to take an active part in the education of their children. The partnership between school staff, parents, governors and other stakeholders is an essential and a valued one.

We hope that this website will reinforce this link and provide useful information for all those interested in our school.

Should you require any further information about the school, please do not hesitate to contact us. We will be happy to help in any way we can.

Thank you for visiting!
