Our core purpose is to support pupils to become effective learners. In doing so, we optimise their future life chances by unlocking their individual potential and maximising their progress and attainment.

Whatever the nature of their local community or their special educational needs and disabilities, pupils at The Dales are growing up in a multi-cultural and diverse society. We aim to promote pupil’s personal development by supporting them to accept, respect and show tolerance and kindness towards others.

Our curriculum intent and implementation has been created to support every child to develop the Life Skills and Basic Skills they need to succeed and thrive both now and in their future.
