We recognise that not only is each child an individual but also each class and each member of staff have unique interests, skills and talents. As such, lessons are designed and delivered by subject specialists and pupils are continually given opportunities to identify and develop new skills in new areas.

Our Vision and Values

Our Purpose
Our Mission
Our Values
The core purpose of Denewood Academy is to ensure all children are equipped for the next stage of their educational lives and to provide them with experiences and positive moments that last a lifetime.
Our aim is that children learn and develop the skills and character required to foster confidence, curiosity, creativity and empathy. We believe this will provide them with the confidence necessary to embrace life’s challenges.
Our values influence everything that we plan, teach and that our children learn – confidence, challenge, curiosity, character and creativity. Academy staff support children and young people to embody these values through their experiences in our academies.


Denewood Academy supports the Local Authority to fulfil its statutory responsibility by providing education to permanently excluded pupils from day six following a permanent exclusion at Key Stage two and three.
