Our Vision and Values

Our vision
We are a group of 14 primary, secondary and special academies located in the East Midlands, committed to development and improvement through strong collaboration and partnership.
We believe that all our students and pupils should be given the very best chance in life to progress and develop into further or higher education and employment.
For each of our academies our mission is to deliver:
  • excellent teaching
  • exceptional care
  • outstanding performance

Our values
Our core focus is the accomplishment and development of each individual student. We believe that this is best achieved through maintaining and developing each academy’s unique identity and individual characteristics.
We encourage diversity and recognise that high levels of success cannot be sustained by adopting a ‘one size fits all’ model. Collectively, we work together to share and co-develop best practice for the benefit of all our academies.

Our students and pupils
We put our students first. We have high aspirations and expectations for all those who attend our academies. Beyond the classroom we provide opportunities to nurture existing talents, as well as opportunities to try new things, enabling our young people to develop a range of skills.
We adopt firm and consistent behaviour policies, ensuring our students learn in calm, disciplined environments. We value our students’ opinions, and engage parents and carers in creating the very best outcomes for their children.

Our staff
Our staff are part of a family of academies. Our large team of educational experts provide support and guidance, and challenge accepted professional thinking. In doing so, we empower our colleagues to enable our students and pupils to meet the highest possible standards.
We have an established framework of core principles and practice to which all our academies subscribe. Our colleagues access the very best professional development and therefore maintain high levels of quality teaching and support.
