‘In the business of learning since 1544’
Proud to be part of The Heath Family Multi Academy Trust
At The Prescot School we are committed to delivering a traditional curriculum in classrooms, focusing on developing skills in English, Maths and Science. Alongside this we also develop students skills in a range of subjects including Technology, Computer Science, Geography, History and French, German and Spanish. We constantly review and change our curriculum to match the needs and aspirations of our students. Children are encouraged to develop their own skills and talents and we support them to do this through individual aspirational challenges and targets.
We have very high expectations of all our students both academically and as part of our community. We expect them to work hard and behave well. We will develop the unique talents of every student through:
- outstanding teaching and learning leading to success;
- celebrating and supporting unique talents;
- respect for individuals with outstanding care, guidance and support;
- innovation and finding new ways to engage and inspire;
- strong positive relationships and exceptional commitment to every child in school;
We are committed to ensuring that supporting and developing our students is at the heart of everything we do. The school is at the heart of our community and we work closely with our partners to ensure a well-rounded and positive learning experience for all.
We are rapidly improving, with tremendous aspirations for the school, our community and our young people. We constantly strive to ensure teaching is the very best it can be and we have a team of dedicated Specialist Leaders of Education and Lead Practitioners who continually drive forward our standards to ensure every learner succeeds.
At The Prescot School we are committed to developing students beyond the classroom. Everyone can access additional learning through the school portal where homework is set through ClassCharts.
We also have a range of extra-curricular activities including a variety of sports clubs and teams, Drama, Art, Music, Languages, Technology and many others.
The Endowment Trustees
The Prescot School is privileged to have a Board of Trustees who support students and the school with additional funds.
Students who demonstrate exceptional skills and talents can be sponsored by the Trustees, to enable them to participate in their chosen activity. They also provide funding for students who go on to University for travel and book grants.
The school house at Tan Y Graig is now operational and students and staff are able to experience learning in this inspiring and beautiful environment.
The school is fully committed to tackling bullying. We have staff specifically trained to deal effectively with any issues, and all staff have clear guidance on how to tackle bullies. A team of students have also been trained to support any student enabling them to report their concerns to a responsible adult. Our PSHCE programme and anti bullying projects are designed to give our students effective strategies and to build self confidence.
The school has established an anti bullying phone line, should there be an issue students or parents want to discuss or report any concerns to a member of staff.
The Prescot School is committed to working closely and in harmony with its community and celebrating the diversity of the UK. We aim to prepare students for life in modern Britain and to ensure that our school ethos, curriculum and approaches to teaching and learning reflect and promote British values.
We recognise that these values are not exclusive to being British and that they have come to be accepted throughout the democratic world as the method of creating an orderly society in which individual members can feel safe, valued and can contribute to for the good of themselves and others.
We work alongside our local community and recognise the variety of religious beliefs within it. Students take part in local events and meet different members of the community to appreciate the valuable contributions they make. All subject departments are aware of the importance of transmitting British values through their curriculum content.
We take opportunities to:
- acknowledge, celebrate and commemorate national events and anniversaries related to key events in Britain’s past
- join in with international sporting events and find out more about the countries that host them
- support a number of charities that are selected by the students and arrange fundraising events
- invite members of the local community to our school events.
We understand the role that our school has in helping prevent radicalisation and supporting our pupils in developing a world view, recognising Britain’s place within it. The five British values are:
- the rule of law
- individual liberty
- mutual respect
- tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs.
