I am delighted that you are interested in Buttershaw Business & Enterprise College. I trust that you will find the information you need within our new website. If you do not, please do not hesitate to contact us.
Buttershaw is a popular and improving school which, nevertheless, understands the need to continue to improve in every area of school activity; we are determined to remain restlessly ambitious on behalf of our students and community.
The school ethos is underpinned by our shared values of wisdom, integrity, justice, compassion and ambition. We believe in teaching and modelling these values and using them as a reference point for our decision making. Whilst we want the very best qualifications for our students, we also want them to develop as citizens, able and keen to make a real difference in their community.
We are proud of our school and hope that you will see something of that reflected in these pages.

New arrangement for Special Educational Needs:
The government has changed the way SEN provision is organised. In response, we have produced a draft school SEN offer, which you can read below. Once governors have considered the offer in details, we shall arrange information sessions for parents. If you have any question in the mean time please let us know.

We are delighted, and excited, that our much delayed academy conversion plans have received the final go ahead for this autumn. The council, the school and our sponsors, Navigate Academies Trust, are working closely together to shape the next phase in the life of the school. We believe that Navigate’s ambition and resources will bring real benefits to the school over the next few years.
The current target date for conversion is 1 October, but this is merely the legal aspect of the change; from this autumn, Navigate will be helping the school to improve its systems and processes even further and so change will continue, behind the scenes, for some months to come. Branding will also gradually change to reflect our new status and name and the uniform badge will change in time for September 2015. Navigate Academies Trust has a website at www.navigateacademiestrust.org if you wish to read more about it.
Our BBEC project week took place from 16th to 20th June with students involved in a range of learning opportunities including foreign language trips, arts events, design activities and media projects. Graduation assemblies and reward trips rounded off the week.
Race for School
Race for School was on Thursday 26th June, it came one day after Connor Lancaster's funeral and was another chance to celebrate his life as well as raise money for Martin House Hospice and Cancer Research. We were pleased that Connor's mum was there and delighted that so many staff and students made it an event to remember.
