Ethos and Values

School Ethos and Values
 
The foundation of our curriculum is based on the British values of our school. They underpin all our work. We believe that children should be raised in an atmosphere of love and respect which raises self esteem and confidence, makes children feel secure and have a can do attitude to learning.
 
We value and welcome all children and aim to meet their individual needs which enables all to fulfill their potential.
 

In order to fulfill the aims the  Academy aims to provide a secure, happy and effective learning environment in which children, staff, parents and governors work together for the benefit of every child  while ensuring that they develop their skills and talents to their full potential as well as becoming thoughtful and responsible members of society.

All children will be:

  • Provided with the maximum opportunity to learn, to acquire a broad range of skills, knowledge and understanding, and to develop their physical, social and personal skills.
  • Encouraged to grow in all aspects of their being, to achieve their personal potential, to promote self-esteem and respect for others and to constantly explore their individual talents.

The staff will deliver to each child the stated aims of the school through:

  • Preparing effective classroom activities.
  • Creating a disciplined, motivating, fair and secure learning environment.
  • Understanding the individual child’s potential, demonstrated aptitudes and building a relationship to nurture their talents.

The parents/carers will be:

  • Encouraged to participate in the development of the school and their children.
  • Provided with timely feedback on their child’s development with honesty and respect.
  • Given support and encouragement to work with the school on defined priorities.

The local community will:

  • Be provided with a school that fulfills the educational and developmental requirements required by society.
  • Benefit from the positive contributions made by a thoughtful and responsible school community which always acts as a good neighbour.
  • Be encouraged to support the school and all its efforts within the community.

The Academy Council and Trustees will:

  • Ensure efficient and effective systems and procedures are operated in collaboration with staff, parents, children and the community towards the school’s aims.
  • Be held accountable for raising standards in school and ensuring that the potential of every child is reached.
