Welcome to our school website!
I am very proud to be Head Teacher at Summerfield Education Centre and be able to share with you the wonderful achievements that both our pupils and staff accomplish here.
Summerfield Education Centre is a caring school where staff understand the difficulties the pupils have accessing education. Pupils are encouraged to believe in their abilities to overcome their barriers to learning. The Pupils are at the heart of every decision we make to ensure that they are happy and confident learners and with your support, are working together to ensure they achieve academically, socially and emotionally.
At Summerfield Education Centre we believe that pupils should be curious about their learning. Our intent is to implement a curriculum that has an impact on pupils’ learning. Staff have worked hard to ensure that it will foster a passion for learning, where individual talents can be nurtured and knowledge retained.
We are a ‘Restorative’ School. Through the use of ‘Restorative Practice’ it enables those who have been harmed to convey the impact of the harm to those responsible, and for those responsible to acknowledge this impact and take steps to put it right.
The school has a dedicated team of both Teaching and Support Staff that work hard to reach high standards in everything we do. We endeavour to foster successful relationships with parents/carers and the local community. We firmly believe that education is a partnership between home and school and regard you as an active partner in your child’s education and value your interest and support.
Summerfield Education Centre has an excellent careers programme which is evidenced through our Gatsby Benchmark (Please click on the Careers tag for further information).
Our Year 11 Cohort this year has worked exceptionally hard and we are looking to achieve our best examination results ever. A big well done to all of you for continuing to work remotely over this difficult time.
I hope that this website will give you as much information as possible about our school, the staff and the many activities that our pupils enjoy throughout the curriculum. It will continue to grow overtime so please watch this space!
COVID 19 & SEPTEMBER 2020 RETURN TO SCHOOL
As you are aware the situation regarding COVID 19 is ever changing. Currently, all pupils will return to school in September. The date of return for Summerfield pupils is 7th September 2020, you will be contacted with individual arrangements for your child during the week commencing 1st September. I would like to take this opportunity to reassure you that we have taken all precautions to keep your child safe within our school.
We understand COVID 19 is having a major impact on your child’s learning. We have thought about this carefully and have put together a ‘recovery package of education’ for each individual pupil who attends Summerfield Education Centre. These ‘packages’ may consist of one or more of the following:
- Face to Face learning including one to one intervention sessions – Your child will come into the Centre for these lessons.
- ‘Remote Learning’ – Through Microsoft Teams your child will be taught via video messaging and/or video chat. (This option is dependent on individual needs and circumstances)
- Assignments set on Microsoft Teams for your child to complete and sent back for the Teacher to provide feedback via this portal.
- Pupils who are not completing work via Microsoft Teams, parents/carers will be contacted to provide an explanation as to why this has not happened.
Information regarding remote learning will be supplied as and when required.
