Our vision is to provide an outstanding education for the children of St Philip’s Primary Academy to raise expectations, aspirations and promote achievement for all in our community.
We pride ourselves in developing a positive ethos built on the foundations of the Christian faith, whilst taking into consideration that most of our pupils, staff and community follow the faith of Islam. This ethos is based on the following principles that we all aim to uphold:
Principle 1: Integrity – we are united as a whole to ensure honesty, fairness and trust are maintained. This quality within our academy means that we follow our principles to ensure that we always do our best for pupils, staff and community.
Principle 2: Respect – all members of our academy, including pupils, staff, governors, visitors and the wider community, should be treated with respect. We hold politeness in high regard and we are accepting of each individual’s uniqueness.
Principle 3: Positivity –we believe that having a positive attitude towards situations enables us to be forward thinking and supports us in our goal of providing a Good and better education for all of our pupils. We demonstrate kindness towards others so that we can all feel happiness and fulfilment.
Principle 4: Motivation – doing the very best for the pupils at St Philip’s CE Primary Academy is what motivates our staff. We plan lessons and activities that incorporate inspiration, excitement and enjoyment to motivate pupils to achieve their potential.
Principle 5: Reliability – we expect all of our stakeholders to be reliable by promoting and demonstrating a dedication to life-long learning for all and increasing effectiveness through regular monitoring, evaluation and feedback processes.
Principle 6: Collaboration – we want all of the members of our community to work as a team, therefore we need to instil confidence in our learners, staff and parents in the role that they play to ensure progress and achievement. We need to ensure approachability and adaptability so that this is possible.
Principle 7: Achievement – through the promotion of independence and risk-taking we are allowing our children to develop the tools to be life-long learners. Through a high quality curriculum and planning of lessons that are specifically tailored for our pupils, they will have the opportunity to achieve and surpass their potential.
