ETHOS, VISION & VALUES
Our Academy's vision is to provide outstanding education and care that allows every child to reach his or her potential, regardless of background.
Safety and Well-being for all children are protected from harm and vulnerable children are supported to succeed with opportunities as good as those for any other child.
Educational Excellence so that every child receives high quality provision, achieving to the best of his or her ability regardless of location, prior attainment and background.
Prepared for the next stage of education (strong transitions) so that all children are well prepared for their next stage of education: transition into nursery; from Nursery to Reception; from Reception into Key Stage 1; Key Stage 1 into Key Stage 2 and; Key Stage 2 into the secondary phase.
Children first, pupils second- We will ensure children, along with their families and carers, are satisfied with the quality of education and pastoral care at Atwood.
High expectations for every child, every day- We are ambitious for every child, and will ensure that all groups of pupils achieve to the best of their abilities.
Outcomes, not methods- We will set stretching, well-measured outcomes and empower our staff to determine how to achieve them, through innovative solutions
Our staff and trustees are learners, too- We will support all staff, including our directors, so that they have access to high quality CPD in order that they can carry out their roles to a high standard.
We aim to provide value for money- We will deliver an excellent education for all our children, through our Directors overseeing the financial performance of the school and making sure its money is well spent.
At Atwood, we have seven Values and these are:
