Aims of the Academy

Our teaching, organisation and entire environment are based upon agreed aims and values which underpin the work of the Academy. These aims are:-

  • To create a secure and caring atmosphere that encourages learning. We believe it is important that each child feels happy at academy and looks forward to being here.
  • To plan the range of work we offer and the organisation of the academy, to give children a stimulating and challenging environment in which they can grow intellectually, imaginatively, physically, emotionally, socially and spiritually.
  • To monitor and assess the progress and ability of each child so we can establish his/her individual needs across the curriculum and match these needs – giving each child the chance to realise their full potential.
  • To foster the child’s interest in the world around them and to develop a love of learning so that each child works with purpose, enjoyment and a pride in his/her achievements.
  • To encourage children to develop lively, enquiring minds capable of a range of learning and thinking strategies, such as the ability to question; solve problems; gather, interpret and organise knowledge; think logically and make reasoned judgements; record and communicate information, at a level appropriate to their age and ability.
  • To deliver a curriculum which ensures children acquire and develop:
    • both mental and physical skills and abilities
    • concepts in all areas of the curriculum which will enable the child to organise knowledge and experience
    • positive attitudes towards learning, experience, people, environment, and society.
  • To develop and maintain a climate of co-operation, respect, understanding and confidence.
    Through working together within the academy community, we encourage children to develop positive moral values and qualities and become progressively more aware of themselves as responsible members of the academy community. We give children opportunities to develop:
    • initiative
    • the ability to make informed choices
    • leadership and self-discipline.
  • To ensure that the academy environment is one within which the children feel valued as individuals, have confidence in their own capabilities and are encouraged to develop their own talents and interests as much as possible. In this way, each child is personally enriched and able to contribute to a changing and developing society.
  • To ensure that every child is given equal opportunity to benefit from a broad and balanced curriculum, which actively involves children in their learning and promotes the highest possible standards of academic achievement.
  • To encourage children to respect others and promote high standards of behaviour and courtesy towards their peers and adults. This includes respect for everyone’s race, religion and culture, gender and physical ability.
  • To develop children as lifelong learners: self-motivated, self-disciplined and unafraid to experiment and make mistakes in their learning.
