Vision and Values
Our Vision and Values
Our vision centres on the child.
The way we ensure everything centres on the child is through our core values:
Collaboration; Diversity; Responsibility, Enrichment, Inclusion and willingness to question perceived norms.
We believe that this enables children to excel in whatever they do.
Avocet Multi Academy Trust is based on a set of values that determine all actions and decisions made throughout the Trust. All of these values are centred around the child to ensure that they have the perfect platform from which to grow.
With all decisions and actions based around these core values we are able to deliver an education which takes into account the needs of the different pupils, schools and communities in which they serve.
Throughout Avocet Academy schools we are committed to ensuring equality for all pupils, staff and families irrespective of race, religion, gender, language, sexual orientation, disability or family background. Equality has to be at the heart of good educational and working practice and is key to achieving our values and our vision of every child having the ability to excel in whatever they do.
We have set objectives which will be reviewed annually. All personnel are responsible for ensuring that the statement is followed at all times.
