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