Values and Vision
Overton Grange School hopes to give the children a challenging and enriching education. The school aims to provide equal opportunities for every student, no matter what background they come from. Overton Grange values students who take part in extra-curricular activities. Teachers encourage children to be a part of the local community. They also give each child the attention they need in order to increase their self-esteem. The establishment wants pupils to enjoy school life, to feel valued and protected.
“Pupils who receive pupil premium funding, disabled pupils and those with special educational needs are making progress similar to their peers. The curriculum is diverse. A wide range of extracurricular activities allows pupils to explore diversity. This develops their spiritual, moral, social and cultural understanding. Pupils’ attendance is good. They generally behave well and are supportive towards each other. This enables all pupils, including those accessing the hearing impairment resource, to be included well in academy life. Safeguarding is effective. Leaders and governors undertake appropriate and careful checks on staff, and record information well. Staff undertake regular and effective safeguarding training.”
