At Moseley we believe an outstanding education is firmly rooted in valuing each individual and developing the whole person. We believe our students should leave their education at Moseley having been equipped with the skills and knowledge to deal with the increasingly complex demands that life and our society place on all of us as individuals.
A Moseley education provides young people with a stable but forward-looking learning environment. We offer students an opportunity to engage in exciting and innovative teaching and learning that nurtures their creativity, innovation and enterprise. Our approach to ensuring that good progress is made by all our students includes celebrating our multicultural, diverse and inclusive school community. Moseley School is a unique place; a rich community of individuals where every child really does matter.
At the heart of any harmonious and ambitious community lies the personal relationships which encourage our students to become the best they can be; a community where strong and positive relationships are fostered through mutual respect and understanding of others. Central to this is our commitment to the highest standards of behaviour and discipline.
We wish each of our students to grow in confidence and release their academic, spiritual and intellectual promise. Our school will develop as a place where students thrive, a place where staff invest their hearts and minds to ensure the highest quality of learning and teaching and a relentless commitment to making a difference to all our learners, a place where all are inspired and energised by learning.
I deeply value the partnership between school and parents/carers. I ask all parents and carers to support us in our work, to support the school and its activities throughout the year. It is through the participation and commitment of all our students and parents/carers that our school can meet the challenge of becoming an outstanding school in the near future.
Our commitment to you
High quality inclusive teaching underpins everything we do at Moseley School. Assisted by experienced support staff, including Graduate Coaches, our dedicated teachers work hard to engage every student and bring learning to life. Lessons typically begin with exciting and stimulating challenges and activities.
Teachers take the time and effort to really get to know their pupils, as well as their academic backgrounds, talents and individual learning needs. They then use a range of learning strategies to bring out the best in every child.
Strong leadership, vertical tutoring and a large pastoral team ensure that the individual needs of students are met and that timely support is provided to both students and families where this is required in order to remove barriers to learning.
How you can help us
Make sure students are correctly prepared and equipped for school. This means that:-
- they get to school on time
- they are correctly dressed
- that they have the correct books for the whole day
- they have at least a pen, pencil and ruler with them
- they have their planner with them
- they keep all belongings in a suitable bag (not a string bag)
- they need to use the local library and develop a habit of reading.
If your child is absent for any reason you should contact the school by phone on the morning of the absence and send a note explaining why they have been away on their return. Holidays should not be taken during term time.

FAQ’s to help support your child
I have a question about my child. Who is the best person to contact?
Each year group has a Head of Year (Teacher) and a Pastoral Manager (Non-teacher). They are the best point of contact for any questions or queries about your child.
Your child will have a form tutor. They will see your child everyday and are an important person to be in contact with too.
Can I come into school to speak to someone about my child?
We ask that you please contact the school to arrange a meeting with the member of staff before you attend site. This ensures that you meet with the correct staff member and that they are available to meet you at a time that suits. Due to the busy nature of our reception you will be unable to wait there for a free member of staff.
Who do I contact if my child is ill?
Please contact the school on 0121 566 6444 and choose option 1.
If you are unable to speak to a member of staff please leave a voicemail informing us of your child’s name, form group and why they will not be attending school. Please ensure you call before 8.30am.
My child has broken the Code of Conduct and has received a detention, can I disagree with this?
Our policy at Moseley School is to actively teach that good conduct is essential to learning and progress. Educational research identifies the need for swift resolution to poor conduct and behaviour choices. For this reason detentions are sat on the day of the concern wherever possible.
I wish to express a concern or I would like to make a complaint. How do I do that?
Please contact us if you would like to discuss a concern on email@example.com in the first instance. If you do not wish to discuss it and would like to make a complaint our complaints procedure policy is available on the website which outlines details of how to do this.
