Field Gate School gets a Silver ATSSA Award!

Five River’s Doncaster School, is delighted to announce it has been awarded the prestigious Silver Attachment and Trauma Sensitive Schools Award (ATSSA). This accolade highlights the commitment they have to their students and the innovative approach they take in a trauma-sensitive educational environment.

Field Gate School provides a space where all students can thrive emotionally, socially, and academically. The Assessor, Dr Jennifer Nock, interacted with staff and pupils at the school to gain full experience of the setting and had so many positive words to share throughout the report.
“There is a focus on creating calm, attractive and adaptive surroundings which put children’s mental health and wellbeing at the centre of the learning environment – truly therapeutic spaces. This is a particular strength of the school.

You are courageous in offering children enriching experiences; the solution to minimising crisis in many schools is, unfortunately, to avoid change and difference. Staff at Field Gate School understand that their children have all too frequently missed out on enriching experiences and have failed to build a store of rich relational memories. Staff are determined to provide inspirational opportunities while protecting children from overload through minute attention to the needs of each individual.”

This ATSSA Award is a testament to the hard work and dedication of the Field Gate staff and students in creating a safe and nurturing learning environment for all and aligns with the school’s mission to cultivate an environment where every student feels valued, supported, and capable of reaching their full potential.

Headteacher, Sarah Weston, has been delighted that Field Gate has achieved silver status: “I am so proud of the FGS team for always going above and beyond for our pupils. Achieving the Silver ATSSA wasn’t a challenge at all as the team put in so much effort every day to support the children to be the best version of themselves.”

Well done Field Gate!
