Headteachers Welcome

It is a pleasure to welcome you to Co-op Academy Delius.

I have had the privilege of being the Headteacher of this fantastic academy since September 2021. 

20 years of working within special education has provided me with the commitment and drive to provide the highest quality of education, environment and experiences for the exceptional pupils who attend the academy. The highly skilled and dedicated staff team I work with at Co-op Academy Delius are passionate about supporting our pupils, and each other and we recognise the importance of working in partnership with parents and other professionals as well as enhancing our links in our local community and beyond.  As an academy we value and recognise the important role that the staff, governors, parents/carers and the wider community play in supporting our pupils and their school life.

At Co-op Academy Delius we strive to provide a personalised, ambitious and challenging curriculum with the highest of expectations where pupils are given a voice and are encouraged to be independent and actively participate in their education. Our curriculum is planned to promote pupils acquiring skills and knowledge which they are able to retain and recall, enabling them to live their lives to the fullest and access society.  Our academy community is passionate and creates innovative learning opportunities in exceptional learning environments whilst promoting holistic as well as academic development.

It is my intention that the academy promotes an ambitious, positive, safe, stimulating and nurturing environment in which all staff and pupils feel valued and their successes and achievements are recognised and appreciated.  I am very proud of our community, our pupils and their successes.  Our academy is full of incredibly talented pupils and staff who are seen and known as individuals  and I encourage you to explore our website further or arrange a visit to learn more about our academy which is a truly amazing place to learn or work.
