The academy aims to:

  • Meet the needs and aspirations of all students
  • Ensure all students can successfully access the curriculum, making any reasonable adjustments required where particular needs are identified
  • Recognise high-achieving students and ensure they are given opportunities to stretch and challenge their learning
  • Plan opportunities for students to develop their personal potential
  • Establish an agreed range of policies and practices to guarantee there is a consistent approach towards learning and teaching in every classroom
  • Involve all staff in developing and improving the quality of learning and teaching
  • Provide all staff with developmental opportunities to extend and enhance their range of teaching and repertoires
  • Develop staff to deliver skills beyond their own subject specialism and incorporate cross-curricular initiatives, in particular literacy, numeracy, ICT and enterprise
  • Identify students’ achievements and areas for improvement through rigorous monitoring of progress and plan appropriate interventions to enhance learning
  • Realise the entitlements for learners, teachers and curriculum as promoted by the Student Learning Commission.
