Our Vision and Values
Our Vision is a statement of intent which encompasses the core purpose, ethos and culture of St Christophers Academy.
We aspire to be a school...
Where our children are keen to come and have an eagerness to learn.
Where children can develop their friendships and learn the social skills and independence that will support them as they learn and grow,
Which provides a nurturing and safe environment and where we understand that the emotional and physical wellbeing of our children is paramount if they are to learn effectively.
Where we are good at identifying aptitudes and abilities in our children and do our best to develop them
Where we put an emphasis on creativity, fun and enjoyment to inspire and motivate our children to learn.
Where we challenge and extend our children's thinking and have the very highest expectations of what they can achieve.
Where we enable children to develop their thinking skills so they may use them in new learning situations.
Where we plan and deliver a curriculum that teachers children how to learn not just what to learn.
Where we prepare children well for the next steps in their education.
Where we support each other to carry out our roles as effectively as possible.
Where we have a culture of learning and everyone is keen to develop themselves and develop positive attitudes to learning.
Which is forward thinking, innovative and open to new ideas.
Which is well thought of and plays an active part in the local and wider community.
Created by all stakeholders (April 2013 - and revisited each year)
As a school we are always looking forward and seeking ways to improve our children's education. Our school plan addresses our main priorities. We have provided an overview that is linked to our extended version.
In addition to this we undertake annual rigorous external reviews of our provision in order to quality assure our standards of education. We have attached our latest report of which we were very pleased.
The last Ofsted inspection was carried out in January 2012.
"Pupils' outstanding behaviour is a key factor in the school's continuing success. There is an excellent atmosphere for learning in class and adults are highly effective in encouraging and motivating pupis to do their best." (Ofsted, January 2012)
