Success for All!
The Governers and staff at the school are firmly committed to the care of the children who attend the school. Our aim to enable all pupils to achieve their maximum potential in academic, physical and moral fulfilment so that they may ultimately make their value contribution to society and in preparation for later life.

- Healthy living, and physical development;
- Academic achievement with sensitive pressure for the highest achievement;

The school aims to become a Centre of Excellence in support of its own pupils and the local mainstream school community.
The School aims to facilitate a child or young person’s greatest possibility for success in life. Every child matters and each should enjoy their educational learning opportunities and have maximum satisfaction from their achievements.
The leadership, management, organisation and curriculum within the school are all directed towards these aims.
Corbets Tey School adheres to the National Curriculum as laid down by the DfES and follows Schemes of Work designed to support this with specific reference to the Schools Special Needs status.
Ethos and Values
Corbets Tey School is forward looking, interested only in offering the highest possible standards of learning opportunity for its children and young people. The school is values lead, and works within a strong sense of community which includes the very closest professional partnership with parents.
“Corbets Tey is a good school with many outstanding features. The pupils love being there. They feel happy and supported and they make excellent progress in their personal development. Parents are very happy for their children to attend, knowing they will be safe, free from bullying and make good progress. Many parents commented on how their child had 'flowered' since joining the school.” (Ofsted June 2006)
Corbets Tey School is a reflective community in which leadership is empowered at all levels and opportunities are seized and maximised. We have had a successful track record in anticipating national curricula change and believe that we continue to do so.
It is very difficult to adequately express an ethos in words but all visitors to the school comment favourably on the calm purposeful atmosphere.
A parent recently said of us:
“Corbets Tey has touched the lives of all my family. The caring, understanding and relentless hard work from all the staff has rescued us from a life of torment and frustration. Children who attend this school are truly cared for. Corbets Tey School removed the threat of residential care which hung over us for so long. This school becomes part of your family and I have enormous respect for all those who work here.”
In our school we highlight the positive. We look for a child or young person’s strengths and develop those whilst at the same time being aware of a child’s needs.
We pride ourselves on our pastoral support for children and young people. The greatest concern is shown to our charges and they receive full and effective support from all.
