Welcome to our school. We hope that you will be able to work closely with us to enable you to support your child at Kettlebrook and that we can support you too. Our students come from all over Tamworth and get on extremely well in school. We want the best for your child and we will try our upmost to enable them to achieve the best set of social and academic skills for a bright future of their choice. Together we will take this journey to achieve this – without your support and continued input we can’t make this happen. The door to Kettlebrook is open for you to visit us at any time or phone us to discuss your concerns etc. Our students each stay for a variety of lengths of time – each dependent on their needs and progress. (If you have any concerns / complaints then please contact the Executive Headteacher, immediately so that we can address your concerns; if it about the  Executive Headteacher then please contact the Chair of Management Committee via the school’s Clerk to the MC.)

“You have ensured that strong, positive relationships between staff and pupils that exist permeate all aspects of the school’s work. You all understand that the vast majority of pupils who attend Kettlebrook Short Stay School may have had less than positive experiences in other settings. From the moment pupils arrive at school, staff are on hand to greet them warmly. They offer a listening ear and respond swiftly to any worries pupils may have. Staff discreetly but firmly reinforce the school rules of handing in mobile phones and cigarettes. Consequently, pupils are better prepared to settle down to their learning.” OFSTED October 2018
