Moor End is a truly inclusive school that welcomes students of all abilities. We have an ethos based on positive relationships and a culture of mutual respect which enables us to provide a safe, stimulating and challenging learning environment so that every student has the best possible opportunities to succeed and excel and become independent and aspirational learners.

Our dedicated, enthusiastic and deeply committed staff, Governors and partners believe in the importance of creating a safe, stimulating, ambitious and caring environment to enable our students to have the self-confidence to use their talents and skills to thrive and achieve excellence.

Our vision is to provide high quality and inspiring learning experiences for all our students.  Through our carefully planned and sequenced curriculum, we aim to foster a culture of aspiration, independence, and mutual respect.  Underpinned by our three core values of respect, ambition, and responsibility – we strive to empower every student to realise and achieve their full potential.

We passionately believe that, as educators, we have the power and responsibility to inspire our students to be the best they can be – to enable our learners to pursue their dreams and become the leaders of tomorrow.

Holocaust Memorial Day 2021

As a Beacon School for Holocaust education Moor End Academy is committed to educating our young people; SMSC and the challenging of prejudice are integral to everything we do; all day, every day. Our curriculum for Holocaust teaching has been amended to include the latest research led practice, which enables us to address common misconceptions regarding this difficult subject.  Teaching and learning about the Holocaust is neither easy nor straightforward. But it has also arguably never been more important, given the uncertainties and tensions that surround us.

On 27th January the academy commemorated Holocaust Memorial Day; this year’s theme was, “Be the light in the darkness”. Our aim was to encourage everyone to reflect on the depths humanity can sink to, but also the ways individuals and communities resisted that darkness to ‘be the light’ before, during and after genocide. Students and staff were asked to consider different kinds of ‘darkness’, for example, identity-based persecution, misinformation, denial of justice; and different ways of ‘being the light’, for example, resistance, acts of solidarity, rescue and illuminating mistruth.

The academy day began with our Principal, Kash Rafiq, lighting the first candle on our Menorah. The remainder of the candles were then lit by our students. Students were then introduced to the day with an incredibly powerful and hard-hitting assembly created by Dale Harden (Subject Leader History). Every single curriculum area across the academy planned Holocaust themed lessons for KS3 and KS4 for the entire day, the standard of which was world class. Some aspects of the day included students in maths reflecting on the statistical data of the Holocaust, ADT students baking Challah, Geography considering the fate of Displaced Persons and IT creating a timeline of Jewish persecution.  This feat was made even more incredible by the fact that the day was delivered to the entire community, whether on-site or remotely. 

The academy continues on its journey of Holocaust education, and is looking forward to achieving the Beacon School Quality Mark in the near future. This will confirm our commitment to ongoing quality provision for and innovation in teaching and learning about the Holocaust. Watch this space!
