Our Vision

We use our vision tag line to guide our interactions, curriculum organisation and approach. 

Nurture

Just like seeds and plants we believe every child needs a bespoke dose of nurture to grow and become the best that they can be.

Inspire

We strive to provide an enriched curriculum that engages children in memorable experiences. Where appropriate we aim to connect curriculum areas holistically ensuring learning contexts are authentic, meaningful and provide opportunities for application of skills, investigation and purposeful play.

Prepare

The children of today are the citizens of tomorrow. Whilst we are ferocious in our academic expectations we recognise that success is not always measured by academic outcomes. Our broad and balanced curriculum is designed to develop subject based knowledge but also to promote independence, life skills, well-being and physical health. We have a duty provide learners with the knowledge, tools and confidence to succeed in life.

 

Our values

Our values are at the centre of our school community and everything we do. We developed them with our first cohort of children, Academy Council, staff and parents. They underpin our teaching and learning, and provide an environment which prepares our pupils as confident, happy citizens. In addition to our values we cross reference British Values and those of Shaw Education Trust.

Humanity - Always kind

Responsibility - Own it and care 

Excellence - Reach for the stars

Innovation - Think outside the box 

Integrity - Honesty is best

Community - Stronger together

 

Our Character Traits

In order to support children developing the skills, knowledge and characteristic traits that will lead to success in life we identified six key traits. These traits are shared with our children in assemblies and used as a reference point for planning our curriculum and enrichment. 

Resilience - Never give up

Curiosity - Ask many questions 

Optimism - Believe in you

Craftmanship - Produce exceptional work

Empathy - Listen, think, understand 

Eloquence - Use words wisely
