Shireland Collegiate Academy Trust’s approach is guided by our aspirations for both staff and students. These aspirations are underpinned by core behaviour values.
Underpinning our mission are our values – an expression of how we expect all our staff to behave to achieve our mission.
Innovate: We support aiming higher through innovation. Pushing the boundaries for learning particularly in the use of technology for an ever-changing world.
Inspire: We support changing attitudes through providing students and staff opportunities to widen their horizons, experience new things and learn in different ways.
Collaborate: We support being concerned for all through encouraging collaboration. We work hard to create environments where pupils and staff have opportunities to work together, sharing ideas and caring for each and every member of our community.
We believe in developing an ethos of learning for all stakeholders of the school community and creating a culture of innovation and challenge which combine to create the very best learning experiences that drive forward school improvement and raise standards.
We believe that success is possible for every child, that high expectations are in place for every learner; that every pupil will make significant progress during their time at the school and that each academy has a strong, rigorous academic curriculum.
We recognise the importance of developing learners for life who will be able to build upon their primary education as they move through their secondary phase and beyond with a desire to expand their horizons and aspirations.
We believe in promoting a shared vision that all people in the community make a positive contribution and have a sense of belonging to improve their life opportunities. By developing a strong sense of rights, responsibilities and trust within the school community, across the wider local community and through technology reaching out to the global community, the academies will help contribute towards building a more understanding, tolerant and fair society.
We believe that it is vital for pupils to develop a sense of belonging and responsibility across the schools and beyond for their behaviour and conduct.
