Academy Values Ethos and Vision

At Willoughby Road Primary academy our motto is “Together Everyone Achieves More” and this
belief drives everything we do. Pupils, parents, teachers and Governors are all partners in ensuring
our young people get the best education possible. Improving achievement and life chances are
top of our agenda and our curriculum reflects the needs of our children.
Our core values (strengths) have driven us to develop a positive and caring ethos where every
child is valued, respected and encouraged to reach his or her full potential.
Our strengths are evident in al that we do. We encourage our children to be thoughtful and
respectful and to love learning. Our staff are dedicated and enthusiastic and endeavour to bring
out the best in our children; challenging and encouraging them through our curriculum.
Strengths are modelled by our staff, shared with parents and the community.


In this school “education” means we have the chance to enjoy learning by…..
• discovering things we do not know
• solving problems
• being creative in writing, art, music
• developing our self-confidence as learners
• growing up physically, socially and emotionally.
In this school we will work to a high standard in lots of different subjects always trying our up most
to be the best we can.
All the adults will work hard to make learning exciting and interesting so that we can do well and
We will concentrate and join in at every opportunity knowing that if we get it wrong there will
always be someone there to help us try again and succeed.
We know that Literacy and Numeracy are very important and if we do well in those subjects they
help us with lots of other things for our future successful learning.
No one in this school ever gives up trying and we know we can always do better with the help of
everyone in our team.
The grown ups know what we do well and encourage us all the time to keep improving.
They know everyone of us so well that they know when we need extra help or when we need
things explaining in a different way. They help us with specially planned work so we can make
good progress in class.
We know that to learn well we have to behave well and there are rules that we need to follow to
get this right but if it goes wrong we will be helped to put it right.
School works with our parents as well so that they can help us be outstanding pupils who give of
their best and receive the best that this school can offer.
