Challenge Partners Review, July 2019

 

Astrea Academy Dearne is an 11-16 secondary situated in Barnsley and we are a school where our colleagues are all part of #TeamDearne. We have a low staff turnover, high staff morale and are looking positively to the future. We are within commutable distance from Wakefield, Leeds, Doncaster and Sheffield and are a proud member of the Astrea Academy Trust family of schools.

 

We are an inclusive school and are oversubscribed in Year 7, Year 8 and Year 9. Being oversubscribed means we are looking to expand our excellent team of teaching professionals. We have the highest aspiration for our students to achieve their very best and grow both as individuals and as members of their community. The development of the whole child forms an integral part of our vision: we want the best for every student at Astrea Academy Dearne irrespective of their background. 

 

Our Opportunity

 

Due to a significant expansion of our in-house SEND provision: Athena, we are looking for inspirational colleagues to join us on the next stage of our adventure. Every day is different and this role presents you with the exciting opportunity you have been looking for!

 

You will be relentless in your commitment and belief in all young people and will ensure only the highest level of academic success and personal fulfilment for all: they deserve nothing less. It is our vision to create outstanding young people who are courageous champions of diversity, equality and mutual respect and who are proud of their community and are enthusiastic advocates of learning. It goes without saying that we will support you, develop you and above all welcome you into our aspirational school.

 

Athena: Primary Approach, Secondary Expectation 

Named after the Goddess of wisdom and power.

Athena is a bespoke alternative provision, initially, for students who join the school who have a SEND need (either K or E) who are not yet Key Stage 3 ready. Through an intensive bespoke curriculum that centres around literacy and numeracy, the provision aims for students to accelerate their progress so they can graduate into the mainstream school. The setting offers a primary environment but still ensures that students experience the full secondary curriculum. The provision is staffed by a mixture of primary and secondary colleagues who merge their strengths and experiences to offer a bespoke and personalised offer. The provision continues into year 9 for a small number of students who may still not be mainstream ready after the two-year intervention. In this year, students embark on Entry Level and Step Up qualifications in the core subjects to ascertain whether they can access GCSE in mainstream school from year 10. This is again supported by the full secondary curriculum and the addition of Wonderful Wednesday where students get to experience a wide variety of alternative crafts and wider opportunities. We recognise that mainstream school is not suited to all our SEND learners, and therefore the provision spans into years 10 and 11, here students access a range of alternative qualifications at level 1 and 2 with GCSE, where applicable, aimed to provide students with success and a readiness for the world.  

 

Recognition          

                                                                                                        

The Athena provision was recognised as an Area of Excellence by Challenge Partners in June 2019  

The Athena provision was also named The Most Dedicated Mainstream SEN Learning Environment in South Yorkshire by the Education and Training Awards.
