" Archway: All Learning is an Archway to Success"

Our Vision  

“Providing Infinite Opportunities – Ensuring the best education for our children and young people”  

Our Aim 

“To do more and to do it better” 

Our Values  


Opportunities for all  

Inclusion: We provide a caring environment where we champion all children and young people, as well as the staff that support them.   

Equality: We are firm in our belief that a child’s future should be defined by their talents and aspirations, not limited by the challenges they may face.  

Opportunities to care 

Dignity and respect: We create an environment where people are accepted, respected, engaged and supported. We are committed to supporting others to ensure the best education and life chances.   

Safety and Wellbeing: We are dedicated to our young people and staff; their physical and emotional well-being as well as their education. We understand that when people feel safe in their environment, their chance of success is greatly increased.   

Opportunities together 

Working in partnership: We work in collaboration and partnership with staff, stakeholders and the wider professional and local community. We are proactive and flexible, sharing best practice with others.  

Supportive: We work together, as a family of schools, to achieve the best for our children and young people.   

Opportunities for life 

Aspirational: We have high aspirations for ourselves and others. We have a shared vision of improving the life chances of our children and young people and their families.   

Personalisation: We recognise people as individuals and have developed a personalised approach to all aspects of school life so that our children and young people are fully prepared for adult life. We are committed to the training and development of our staff to ensure they are highly skilled" 

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.
