Academy values and ethos
At St Agnes Academy, we promote and celebrate positive behaviour and our children’s many achievements through a shared understanding of our school values:
We have high expectations of ourselves and our children. We expect everyone to try their best, to work hard, to be courteous and to contribute to the success of our school. The governing body, PTA, parents/carers, staff and children work together as a team to make a caring and safe environment where learning is enjoyable and successful.
Our school has its own ‘flavour’, based on the ideals and interests that we hold closest to our heart. In addition to a firm focus on the essentials of primary education, we are dedicated to the promotion of environmental awareness and excellence in the arts and sports. Children are at the centre of everything we do and we strive to provide a stimulating and challenging learning environment in which our pupils are excited to learn and are given the confidence to fulfil their potential. We encourage our children to learn, achieve and make progress and to develop knowledge, skills and understanding across a wide curriculum. We pride ourselves on encouraging our children's enthusiasm and nurturing a love of learning.
We work hard to ensure that our children are safe, secure, and part of a friendly caring community where all feel valued and care for each other. We want our children to be happy and excited about coming to school. We aim for our pupils to thrive and develop the skills they need for life-long learning, as well as to make a meaningful contribution to the world in which we live.
We aim for the highest standards and aspirations at all times. When our children leave us we want them to recognise and believe that, with courage and perseverance, anything is within their reach.
