The Roaches Upper school is for older pupils (11-16) and is located near Biddulph in Staffordshire
The younger pupils (5-11) are educated at a site in the spectacular Peak District National Park between Leek in Staffordshire and Buxton in Derbyshire. The location of the school is delightful. It is located amongst heather clad moorland and high rocky outcrops.
Our Mission is to become a Centre of Excellence in meeting the social, emotional and mental health needs of our children, through the creation of a caring and supportive "family" atmosphere. Whenever possible we aim to facilitate the reintegration of our pupils into mainstream education.
• To provide a broad and balanced curriculum, with proactive care and education plans that enable the children to achieve their goals and maximise potential.
To support children who find learning difficult and nurture a love of learning and of life.
To create an attractive and secure anti-oppressive and anti-discriminatory environment within the buildings and around the grounds.
To ensure that each child is valued as an individual, is aware of his/her fellow beings, assumes responsibility for his/her own actions, and is prepared to make a worthwhile contribution to the School community.
To praise and celebrate achievement
