Our Academy

Our values, which we consider to be important and underpin all the work we do to achieve the vision are:


1. Children and families first for everyone to be the best they can be.

By understanding our children and families, we are able to more effectively meet their needs and expectations. All staff are committed to undertake their work based on the desire for every child to attain high levels of achievement and for everyone to be proud of what we do.

2. Working to high standards, enjoying our work and always wanting to get better.

We set high standards for ourselves and others, working with willingness to take initiative, make decisions, act and seek to continually review and improve what we do.

3. Valuing people, we are a team and every player is important.

We believe all individuals matter and deserve respect. We show consideration and empathy for the physical and emotional well-being of others, are honest, trustworthy and understanding of different roles.

4. Sharing the vision, being proud of our school.

We create a positive and rewarding environment for everyone. We have a belief in inclusion, diversity and the ability of all to achieve their absolute potential and we take pride in the school’s successes.

5. A safe school culture, thinking carefully about what we say and do and how other people are feeling.

A culture in which everyone is proactive in safeguarding children and protecting staff with an increased awareness of child safety issues. Pupil voice is given high priority and everyone has a clear understanding of boundaries and guidelines about relationships between adults within the school and pupils.

6. Change and innovation-trying new ideas is good.

We have a school climate that fosters continuous self-evaluation and improvement within a framework of creative thinking and flexible approaches.


These values are shared in ‘child speak’ as school rules:

  • 1. TRY YOUR BEST TO BE THE BEST YOU CAN.
  • 2. BE IN THE RIGHT PLACE, AT THE RIGHT TIME.
  • 3. TREAT OTHERS KINDLY OR LEAVE THEM ALONE.
  • 4. TAKE CARE OF PROPERTY AND KEEP OUR SCHOOL LOOKING GREAT.
  • 5. EVERYBODY HAS THE RIGHT TO FEEL SAFE IN THEIR BODIES AND FEELINGS.
  • 6. EVERYONE A LEADER, EVERYONE A LEARNER.
