A single academy set up in September 2015 working under the Trust:
OVER HALL ACADEMIES LIMITED
"Our task is to educate their whole being so they can face the future. We may not see the future but they will and our job is to help them make something of it.'
Sir Ken Robinson
Our vision of school is encapsulated by the motto …
'Be supported, feel supported – make a difference'
We aim to ensure pupils enjoy learning and feel prepared for life within and outside of school, today and for the future, through a variety of strategies, activities and support. We offer our pupils new and exciting experiences through timetabled and extra-curricular activities that are designed to build resilience, confidence and self-esteem, preparing them for life beyond the school gates.
We are determined to provide every opportunity for the children and our community at Over Hall. We have created a community where all can experience the freedom and safety to grow, develop, dream, believe, achieve and inspire each other. We aspire to high standards in the quality of all that we undertake and are passionate about seeking the best outcomes for children and their families, meeting their needs and stretching their aspirations.
During their time at Over Hall, we aim for children to build their resilience through identifying their secure base, alongside building up self-esteem and a strong sense of self efficacy. As a result, we strive for them to be able to confidently complete the phrases...
I have ... (identifying their support and resources around them enabling them to feel safe and secure)
I am ... (identifying personal strengths, attitudes and beliefs)
I can ... (identifying social and interpersonal skills; a sense of control and mastery; an understanding of strategies and limitations)
'The child who works well, loves well and expects well despite profound life adversity.'
~Werner and Smith 1982~
At Over Hall we ensure everyone feels 'supported' through our agreed values of...
- Safety and sensitivity to the needs of others
We believe our role is to nurture, provide opportunities and encourage positive attitudes in creating lifelong learners, team players, coaches and critical thinkers. We develop by adopting open minds, exploring, sharing, adapting and utilising strategies that will benefit us as individuals and our community as a whole. In doing this, our children feel safe, happy, learn well and make progress. Our values are displayed through school, reflected upon in our lessons, assemblies and modelled by our children and staff.
At Over Hall our mission is to equip our learning community with the skills, knowledge, understanding and a love of learning needed to achieve our full potential.It is both a privilege and absolute pleasure to be part of such a strong and passionate community.
