Vision & Values
“High achievement and a strong sense of well-being for all is our shared responsibility”
Our Vision is to be an outstanding school where there is a strong sense of pride, hope and aspiration. We place importance on the development of the whole person; intellectually, physically, emotionally, socially and spiritually. Alongside effective pastoral support and strong Christian values, to develop a school where a rich curriculum and stimulating approach to teaching and learning will secure achievement and success for all.
The Bible verse that encapsulates our vision is, “I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you a hope and a future” Jeremiah 29v11. This verse reflects our trying to align our plans with God’s plans so that we can give all our pupils a sense of hope and aspiration for the future.
This is underpinned by a core set of values:-
- Knowledge and Wisdom – We encourage all in the academy to seek the knowledge, wisdom and the skills needed to shape life well.
- Hope and Aspiration – We aim to give all in the academy hope and raise aspirations for their life ahead.
- Dignity and Respect – We value all in the academy and expect members of our community to treat themselves, others and the environment with dignity and respect.
- Faith and Compassion – We develop all in their understanding of Christian belief, worship and lifestyle and they are encouraged to be generous in their concern for others.
Our Mission is to create an environment built on positive engagement, self-discovery, leadership, passion for learning and the acquisition of knowledge, wisdom and effective skills for life. To provide an education based on students’ individual needs, building self-esteem and motivation, rewarding progress, providing a wide range of opportunities and engendering a genuine love of learning.
Our Commitment is to empower all members of the school to progress their understanding and knowledge in the classroom and beyond, so they can make a positive contribution to the wider community, experience success and live happy, healthy, fulfilled lives. We will work together with parents, governors and the wider community to meet the needs of our students. We will act with professionalism in all we do and expect the students to demonstrate empathy, respect and acceptance for themselves and others.
Our ethos is based on dignity, mutual respect and working together. We will provide a nurturing, supportive and caring learning environment where all experience healthy relationships based on equality, confidence, compassion, integrity and respect for self and others.
Our core purpose is to provide students with a high quality learning experience, in a caring and supportive learning environment, underpinned by strong Christian values so that all students flourish. Consequently, students are aspirational, resilient and respect the value of others.
