Welcome to the Cloughwood Academy website.

I hope that this website has become a useful resource and a place where you are able to come to find out important information about Cloughwood and the work we do, continually striving to provide the best possible experience for all our pupils and families.

At Cloughwood we pride ourselves on being an outward facing, forward-thinking, inclusive community. Our staff work tirelessly to improve our provision and to ensure that your son makes the best possible progress and achieves the best outcomes both in their learning and in their professional development. 

We have more pupils attending the Academy now than ever before and the needs of our pupils are wider than ever, often very complex in nature. To address this our staff dedicate themselves to broadening their skills and knowledge and we adapt and improve the environment as best we can to meet those needs. 

A major driver this year is to achieve as close to 100% attendance as possible. Certain areas of the academy achieve this on a day to day basis but we have struggled to do so for all pupils for an extended period of time. With your help we can get closer to our goal and with that will come ever better outcomes for our pupils; the benefits of good attendance are too many to list.

Please take the time to have a look at our website from time to time and keep up-to-date with what is happening at Cloughwood. We are always open to listening to new ideas so feel free to contact us with constructive thoughts about how we can continue to improve. 

Thank you for your continued support.
