Our Vision:

Heltwate encourages pupils to do the best they can to achieve their potential in a safe, supportive and calm environment by a team who supports them throughout their time here.

Our desire is to be outstanding in every area, to maximise every pupil’s opportunities and potential. Individual attainment should be the best it can be, LEARNING through enjoyment and hard work are essential.

We will set high expectations and create a strong feeling of community. A family ethos will exist throughout the school. All members should CARE for each other.

Pupil achievement will be SHARED and celebrated no matter how small the steps.

Pupils will GROW and develop socially and life skills will become an important part of that growth.
