What the school offers its staff

Cascade Integrated Resource is one provision based across three different school sites - Beck, Hucklow and Whiteways. All three schools are situated in the north east of Sheffield. Our aim within the Integrated Resource is to deliver a broad, balanced though personalised curriculum for each of our children. We want children to be excited about their learning as we foster their interests, and challenge them to become the best that they can be.

The main area of need for pupils in the Integrated Resource is Communication and Interaction. Each child has an Education, Health and Care Plan and is placed by the Local Authority. Children are supported to access mainstream learning by adults from the base where appropriate.

We offer a stimulating learning environment as well as a challenging and innovative curriculum tailored to meet the needs of our pupils. We are proud of the relationships we have built with our children, families and outside agencies as these are fundamental to everything that we do.

We are now in our fourth year and are looking to invite proactive and enthusiastic team players to join our dedicated team. We recognise that new staff may need to further develop their skills to work within the setting, so we offer a core training programme to develop confidence to undertake the role
