Swindon Academy's Vision & Values
Our academy is an ambitious learning community, where everyone is determined to outperform their previous best. Detailed planning enables us to deliver a rigorous and challenging curriculum. Outstanding teaching fosters independent, creative and resilient students who gain a mastery of maths and are able to communicate confidently and effectively. High achievement, accelerated and sustained progress and the pursuit of excellence are underpinned by robust support structures and quality care and guidance. We provide leadership and development opportunities which bring out the best in everyone and reflect our shared values.
Hard Work: We believe knowledge is power. Our curriculum is designed to provide students with the core knowledge and cultural capital they need for success in education and later life, to maximise their cognitive development to empower them with the knowledge needed to make well-informed, logical, and ethical decisions.
Kindness: We believe that everyone should grow personally and thrive collectively. Our curriculum develops the whole person and the talents of the individual to allow all students to become kind and well-rounded citizens who make a valuable contribution to our society. This means that we are all thoughtful and considered about how we treat ourselves and others
Responsibility: We believe in clear adult authority. Our curriculum provides clear guidance on acceptable behaviour both in terms of how students conduct themselves in school and towards each other. It teaches students how to be safe, healthy, and how to manage their academic, personal, and social lives in a positive way.
