Pastoral and Safeguarding

Effective learning and teaching is directly linked to behaviour and attitudes. Effective teaching is a major factor in promoting good behaviour and positive attitudes to learning.

The Academy will always strive to ensure education is accessible to all. We will provide a safe and positive atmosphere for students to achieve good outcomes.

Staff from all areas of the Academy, alongside students, have been consulted and contributed to the writing of this policy.

This policy will be reviewed as it is used and developed to reflect the changing needs of our students and consequently the development of working practices.


The aim of the policy is to provide a whole school framework on how to manage and motivate students whilst ensuring the Academy's value of inclusion is still at its core.

We are determined to develop the mind set and culture within the Academy so that every member of our community, students and staff, wish to and strive hard to make progress, taking immense pride in their effort and work.

The Academy's objectives are for learners to:

  • develop a set of values which contribute positively to their learning and their lives
  • demonstrate exemplary conduct and be self-disciplined
  • develop a growth mind-set
  • feel valued as individuals and celebrate their own and the Academy's achievements
  • value the diversity of the community
  • aspire to make the most of opportunities to extend their horizons and further their training and education
  • contribute to the common good of the community locally, nationally and internationally
  • work hard to develop their personal, learning and thinking skills
  • have the opportunity to understand and experience the Christian worship in the Academy
  • achieve good outcomes
  • be well prepared for life and work beyond the Academy
