  • where there is joy, laughter, excitement — – personal and shared success
  • where everyone who is part of our community is respected and valued, and this is demonstrated in both communication and behaviour
  • where we work towards common aims, co-operation and respect individuality
  • where no child or adult is prevented from fulfilling their potential because of prejudices arising from class, disability, gender, race or primary language
  • where learning is an ongoing and shared experience both within and beyond year groups
  • where we become aware of, explore and enjoy the diversity, complexity and connections between all people, things and ideas in the world
  • which is bright, attractive, cared-for and welcoming
  • where we feel positive, confident, comfortable, and that the work we do is worthwhile
  • where it is safe for children and staff to express worries about anything they cannot do or do not understand
  • where there are high expectations and high standards of achievement.
  • where staff are valued and have the space and opportunity to develop within the academy: investors in ALL people
