Building Extension and Refurbishment

We are very glad to say the building work has been completed and the new dining area looks fantastic!

Solar panels have been fitted to the roof structure in order to reduce the Academy's carbon footprint. Roof lights to allow both natural light and natural ventilation into the space have been installed.

At King Edward VI Sheldon Heath Academy, we are committed to our set of core values. Students were asked to define these core values; Compassion, Aspiration, Respect and Equality. This is what they said.




Compassion means understanding the feelings of others and being kind and caring. It is having the ability to show empathy, concern and, most of all, love. By being compassionate, not only are you helping others but, in a way, you are also helping yourself.


Your aspirations are your dreams for the future and what you want to achieve. Aspiration means aiming for the best in life and trying to reach the goal you want. If you aspire to achieve something, you go for it and push through the difficult moments.


Respect is a mutual thing, and it always should be. If you want respect, you show respect too. Respect means considering the feelings, wishes or rights of others. Respect yourself and others by treating them the way that you want to be treated.


Everyone is equal and you should treat each person the same as everybody else. Equality is about ensuring individuals are treated fairly and equally, no matter their race, gender, age, disability, religion or sexual orientation.

Equality, Diversity and Inclusion

Our whole school Public Sector Equality Duty statement outlines our objectives:

  • To increase the accurate reporting of prejudice-related incidents by staff.
  • To increase student understanding between ethnic groups and religious groups, to decrease the use of racist language.
  • To increase student understanding of the use and impact of language, to decrease the number of prejudice related incidents.
