At CAPS our students will learn to develop their self esteem and become confident individuals. We will create and provide various opportunities for students to achieve their goals. Students will be able to access an inclusive curriculum, so that they can develop and progress socially, emotionally and academically. We aim to work in partnership with schools, parents/carers and other professionals.
We provide child-centered education and support, working collaboratively with the students, their families and their education providers and contributing to multi-agency assessments.
We focus on individual needs within a safe, friendly and nurturing environment
Our aim is to encourage independence, promote self-worth and enable access back into the mainstream setting for the majority of our students. However, for those who prefer to remain within the CAPS setting, we will ensure they achieve GCSE based and alternative curriculum success.
We will release potential in all our students to enable them to succeed in both education and life in a confident and happy way.

CAPS recognise that high self- esteem, confidence, peer support and clear lines of communication with trusted adults helps all children, and especially those at risk of or suffering harm from abuse or neglect. Therefore Cheshire Alternative Provision School will establish and maintain an ethos where children feel safe, secure, are encouraged to talk and are listened to, with relevant action being taken as and when necessary.
All staff members at the school hold a Level One Safeguarding Children qualification and are experienced in dealing with a variety of subject matters.
