Being a Parent (or Guardian) of a child who attends one of our Academies
One of our Quality Standards is to 'engage parents and enable parents to engage in their children's learning'. Parents are made welcome by each Academy and understand the communications system the school uses. Reports and parent information sessions are clear and well-received by parents. Parents understand the opportunities available to them and for their children. Homework is clear and appropriate and parents are encouraged to contribute and be involved in the learning opportunities of their children.
The Academies within our trust are committed to the provision of high quality education for all children. We believe that working within a Christian context – rooted in Gospel values such as service, thankfulness and humility - we can help young people become fulfilled, self-motivated, independent, responsible and caring members of society. We want all our young people to aim for excellence in all that they do.
We believe that if each person feels valued as an individual who has an important contribution to make they will, in turn, learn to value others leading to stronger communities and a healthier society. In creating this sense of being valued, we are committed to every child making the progress they are capable of and reaching the highest possible standards in their learning. It is through excellence in their learning, and by maximising the sense of progress made, that young people value their education and are valued in turn by others.
We believe in the affirmation of individual worth. Every child is valued through their successes, reaching high standards and maximising their progress.
We believe in an holistic education for children. The highest standards of support for literacy and numeracy should be complemented by excellent arts and sports provision, and all learning should take place in the context of understanding the human relationship with the world.
