At Blessed Robert Widmerpool Catholic Voluntary Academy we are committed to inclusion and ambition for all. We aim to ensure all children have access to a broad and balanced curriculum which supports their academic, social, emotional and spiritual development. We work closely with children, parents and outside agencies to support our children, help then become more independent and prepare them for their adulthood.
