Treetops School aims to be a centre of excellence



To provide a broad and balanced curriculum, differentiated to meet
individual needs

To promote and enhance the self-esteem and sense of self-worth of each and every individual

To provide a safe, secure, positive and happy working environment

To develop an awareness and understanding of the needs of the whole school community (pupils, parents, staff, governors and friends)

To prepare pupils for adult life. To equip them with the necessary skills and understanding to become responsible citizens, confident to take their place as valued members of the community

To enable every individual (staff and pupils) to achieve his/her full potential

To develop and maintain links with the local community (schools, colleges,business and thevoluntary sector)

To offer support, guidance and advice to special and mainstream schools and colleges

To provide and promote an inclusive model of education

To accept, value and celebrate the unique contribution each individual makes to society

To extend the range of educational, social and vocational opportunities available to all pupils

To ‘work together and achieve together’

To work in partnership with parents, fellow professionals and all interested parties

To be at the leading edge of specialist provision through participation in local, regional, national and international initiatives


We aspire to this statement. We acknowledge and value the unique contribution of each and every individual within our school community.
It is almost impossible to express an ethos in words – it is more of an ‘ambience’ – or a way of being that needs to be experienced. We quote a recent comment made at one of our social events by the parents of an ex-pupil (right).

Our school works on achievement, on what can be done. We work on the positive. We do not view our work as such but as a vocation or as an opportunity to make a difference.

Each pupil is placed in an age or need appropriate group. Each group will have a teacher responsible for pastoral care. In addition the Headteacher and Deputy Head-teacher also take great pride in ensuring pastoral care is of the highest order. We will always endeavour to answer any worries you have on the same day that you make contact.

One of the great qualities of our school is that we are small. We are therefore able to know each pupil really well and conversely they know us really well. Behaviour and discipline in school (or anywhere else) is all about relationships.

Our aim is for pupils to accept our values and become part of a whole community, which instils a sense of pride in each other.

There are many and varied extra-curricular activities. For younger pupils there are frequent visits and trips to make their learning as real as possible. We also run residential experience and variety club and other sponsored events. These are tremendous opportunities which all form a very valuable part of our whole school approach. We do have a school uniform which we feel helps to instil a sense of pride and community.

This part of the prospectus is intended to give you a flavour of our school. A visit would really help you form a view.


Curriculum organisation
In the Primary Department (N.C. yrs R-6, Classes 1-4) the curriculum is delivered largely by the class team through a topic-based approach in a format very similar to mainstream practice. All staff work very closely together to share ideas and materials in order to ensure progression and continuity for all pupils.

In the Secondary Department (N.C. yrs 7-11, Classes 5-12) the curriculum is delivered largely through a subject-based approach as in mainstream secondary schools. Again, staff work very closely together to plan, assess and evaluate the ongoing review of curriculum issues.

At the end of each key stage (key stages 1-3) pupils undertake Standard Assessment Tasks (SATs).

At the end of key stage 4, all pupils have the opportunity to gain nationally accredited certification of their achievements through the Welsh Joint Exam Council (WJEC) Certificate of Educational Achievement. This is currently offered in eight curriculum areas. Pupils also have the opportunity to attempt the National Trident Gold Award and the ASDAN Challenge Award. K.S. 4. Pupils also have the opportunity to take GCSEs in English, Maths and Art – the first cohort started in September 2002.

Copies of all curriculum policy statements (including Religious Education, Careers, P.S.E. and Sex Education) are available on request from the Headteacher.

Arrangements for consideration
of curriculum complaints

All parents naturally have concerns from time to time about the progress or welfare of their children. We consider it an important part of our job to deal with such concerns as soon as they arise and to discuss fully with you ways of handling them. The majority can be settled, at school level, if you approach your child’s teacher in the first instance. But sometimes the problem needs the help of other professionals such as the Education Welfare or Psychology and Assessment Services. We can advise you about the appropriate agency to contact, should this be necessary. In certain circumstances you have the right of appeal (eg in connection with admissions/special educational needs) – again we will inform you of those rights, or put you in touch with someone who will discuss them with you. The LEA has a statutory procedure for handling curriculum complaints and other related matters. A copy of the LEA’s Policy is available from the school office on request.
