Values and Ethos

Engage, Encourage and Enrich

The Trust and Senior Leadership Team at Hollis Academy have very ambitious aims:

We want our students to:

  • Be proud of their Academy;
  • Attain the highest level possible in all areas of academy life; academic, social, emotional and physical development.
  • Develop lively and enquiring minds, formulating questions and seeking answers in a variety of ways.
  • Develop a sense of self-esteem and self-discipline, allied to a positive ethos of community involvement.
  • Acquire a growing awareness of the needs and rights of others.
  • Become responsible for their own actions and decisions, whilst developing morals and ethical values.

We aim to:

  • Provide a caring and friendly atmosphere by providing an environment where students are respected and valued and where individual needs are recognised and supported.
  • Bring out the best in every child irrespective of any learning difficulties they may have.
  • Provide as many different experiences, ideas and activities for each child in a safe and secure environment.
  • Help your child to care about those around them.
  • Support your child in leading an independent and purposeful life.
  • Offer a broad and balanced curriculum modified as appropriate to meet individual needs.
  • Create an atmosphere which encourages team work and values the contributions of all parties.
  • Motivate staff through strong leadership at all levels, which offers direction and democratic management.

We would like parents and carers to:

  • Ensure your child attends academy regularly and punctually.
  • Become actively involved in your child’s education, both at home and school.
  • Be part of the Academy Community.
  • Support our teachers in working together for the benefit of your child.

Our approach to all curriculum areas will take these aims into account.
