Free School Meals during school holidays: The Government has provided a COVID Winter Grant Scheme to support those most in need across England with the cost of food, energy and water bills and other associated costs. The Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) will provide funding to the Council who will administer the scheme and provide direct assistance to vulnerable households and families with children particularly affected by the pandemic. This will include families who normally have access to benefit related Free School Meals during term time. Eligible families will be contacted by the Welfare and Benefits team of the Local Council to make arrangements for one payment to be made directly to them in December which will cover the school holidays over Christmas and February half term. There will be support from Easter through the Department for Education’s Holiday Activity and Food programme which will provide funding from Easter to Christmas 2021.
To inspire each of our young people to flourish as an individual, to be curious, to be resilient and to love learning. We aspire for them to grow into articulate, independent future citizens and to become the leaders of tomorrow.
Our vision at Crossley Heath is rooted in our core values: Self-belief, Respect, Purpose, Responsibility, Challenge and Aspiration.
We are a warm, inclusive and diverse community where every child and young person is much valued. We are committed to securing the well-being and mental health of everyone in our community and are proud to offer outstanding care through our pastoral and well-being team.
We are very proud of our students who achieve highly academically and engage in a multitude of creative, sporting, cultural and character building pursuits.
In 2018, we were delighted to be included in the Sunday Times Parent Power top 150 schools and 3rd best state school in their North of England category.
The Crossley Heath Sixth Form is a small, inclusive and vibrant community where students and teachers enjoy working together in order for everybody to realise their potential. Our goal is to provide our young adults with the skills and knowledge necessary to look after themselves and thrive in the wider world. We have high academic aspirations and foster integrity, independence and teamwork. Students are encouraged to think critically, to make well informed choices, to consider the views of others and to demonstrate strength of character.
Students are valued as individuals and expected to treat each other with kindness, sensitivity and respect. We genuinely care for and support each other here. We like to laugh and have fun together and value student ideas and creativity highly, as well as encouraging active participation in the life of the school and its local community.
