Welcome to SAUMA Academy!

We pride ourselves on being a welcoming school where we work in partnership with parents and carers to ensure that all children reach their full potential during their time with us.

We are proud to embrace a wide range of cultures and languages within our pupil population and we create an atmosphere of respect and trust where every child can feel safe and secure.

SAUMA Academy is an inclusive community in which each person is respected and recognised as of equal value. We aim to ensure that everyone remains safe and stays healthy, whilst at the same time making a positive contribution to the wellbeing of the school community.

We are committed to the care and well-being of all students so that they may work and learn in a safe, secure environment. In all aspects of the school, the stakeholders (governors, staff, students, parents and the wider community) are committed to working together to ensure that the school community remains true to the equal value principle underpinning its policies.

We support disability equality in all aspects of school life for students, staff and visitors. All new policies and protocols are carefully examined to ensure access and equality in diversity.

SAUMA Academy continues to develop its ability to provide an inclusive, accessible environment for students, staff, parents and members of the local community. It aims to meet the five outcomes of the Children Act (2004) and has regard to the general duty to:

• promote equality of opportunity

• eliminate unlawful discrimination

• eliminate disability-related harassment

• promote positive attitudes to people with disabilities

• encourage the participation of people with disabilities
