Shavington Academy National Excellence

Shavington Academy near Crewe has been recognised in a national award for schools that work hardest at promoting social cohesion and boosting the growth of mutual understanding between people from different backgrounds. The school has been placed second in the Accord Inclusivity Award, one of only three schools recognised across the country. The annual award is open to all schools in England and Wales and was judged by a diverse panel of experts.

Aspects of the school's work that drew praise include:

    • Organising a group for LGBT pupils
    • Having been awarded the Religious Education Council’s Gold Quality Mark
    • Encouraging every pupil to study RE at GCSE (increasingly uncommon at non-faith schools)
    • Providing inclusive ‘humanitarian’ assemblies delivered through moments of reflection which respect the autonomy of pupils
    • Providing high quality Personal, Social, Health and Economic (PSHE) education which includes teaching parents about their child's risks and responsibilities online
    • Organising Muslim speakers each year to help challenge stereotypes and improve understanding of Islam and British Muslims among the school’s largely non-Muslim intake

Chair of the judging panel, the Reverend Stephen Terry, said 'Shavington Academy displays a deep and multifaceted commitment to creating an outward looking and inclusive environment. These are very important qualities that are too often ignored by many schools. Ways Shavington Academy have achieved this include from pro-actively challenging stereotypes, to providing very high quality RE and assemblies to the end of Key Stage 4, to obtaining support for its various approaches from parents. The judging panel are delighted to recognise it as an example for other schools across the country to follow.'

Head teacher at the school, Carol White, said 'We are absolutely delighted to have been recognised by Accord for the work that we do.  Receiving this award encourages us to build on what we do and to continue to provide diverse experiences for our pupils to learn from.'

Recognised by Ofsted as a project that schools can participate in to support their legal equality duties, the annual Inclusivity Award has been running since 2009. It is open to all schools in England and Wales and rewards those that that work hardest to promote inclusivity and the growth of mutual understanding, with particular regard to that on the grounds of religion and belief. Past winners have faced a wide array of challenges. The judges for the 2018 Award were:

    • Professor Becky Francis - Director of the UCL Institute of Education, the world’s highest rated university education faculty
    • Dr Ed Kessler - Director of the Cambridge Woolf Institute and national expert on inter-faith relations
    • Baroness Kishwer Falkner - Chancellor of the University of Northampton, with interests in foreign affairs, national security, and diversity and equality
    • Rabbi Dr Jonathan Romain - writer, broadcaster, Minister at the Maidenhead Synagogue and President of the Accord Coalition for Inclusive Education
    • Revd Stephen Terry - former Church of England Parish Priest and Chair of the Accord Coalition for Inclusive Education

Head Teacher Welcome

Thank you for visiting our web site.  

We are very proud of the education that we provide at Shavington. It is rooted in a collective drive for all pupils to achieve their potential academically and for each pupil to become a responsible member of their community, as a young adult.

Year on year, our pupils achieve results above the national average in the majority of subjects within the curriculum.  We are extremely proud of our track record of preparing pupils for post 16 study, as well as the workplace. Indeed, a significant number of our pupils go on to study post 18.  We believe that they are prepared for this endeavour through the values here at Shavington Academy. 

It is very important to us that our pupils enjoy their time in school. Extra -curricular opportunities across sport, the arts and sciences, with opportunities to travel and try new experiences all play their part in making the school experience a rich and rewarding one. Pupils play their part in the quality of education that they enjoy, through their high standards of behaviour, a commitment to helping others and a strong sense of integrity.

I hope that you will find the information that you are looking for. Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you require further information.
