Statement of Intent
Our core purpose is to ensure every student leaves us ready for their next successful chapter, with students attending university or starting a fulfilling career. At Moorside High School, we enrich lives and inspire ambitions to ensure students thrive in the world around us.
We believe that curriculum excellence and high-quality teaching are the key components in order for our students to achieve the outcomes to this end. In addition to academic outcomes, we aim to give students a wide variety of knowledge, experiences and skills to ensure that they are able to make informed choices on key decisions faced throughout their lives and go on to become socially responsible citizens. Our strategy will be research led and be one that will:
- Support staff development to enable them to have a greater impact on students that are disadvantaged.
- Continue to develop high quality curricula.
- Ensures meaningful targeted academic intervention.
- Provides pastoral care to ensure that students are able to access all aspects of school life; including focus on attendance, behaviour and wider curriculum opportunities.
Our strategies focus on whole school improvement and thus students across the school will benefit from this, however research (Education Endowment Foundation) has shown that improvements to teaching and learning, for example, has a particularly positive effect on students eligible for the Pupil Premium.
