Curriculum Statement 2021-22

Our Values

At Swindon Academy, we are unapologetic in our unique approach to ensuring that every pupil can flourish academically and personally in an aspirational and supportive environment. Our aim is to provide an excellent education for all our students; an education which brings out the best in all of them and prepares them for success in life. Our values help drive our ambition for our students:

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.
