What the school offers its staff

We expect the very highest levels of behaviour and attitude to learning from our students, coupled with a real focus on building positive relationships. We take every opportunity to study a wealth of subjects at both Key Stage 3 and 4. Our wider school life gives students and staff the opportunity to travel all over the world, take part in shows, give back to the local community, be a part of a team, go out into the working world, experience other cultures and meet people from all walks of life. Support and care are equally important for all members of staff. We have a well-developed Continuing Professional Development (CPD) programme at Ecclesfield School that is now supported further by the growing CPD offer from the Trust. Wellbeing is also rightly high on our agenda. We have clear well-being principles in place that guide our work in school and an annual action plan full of suggestions made by staff.
