NPAT Values Statement

We know that there is greater potential for realising our vision through working together as a family of schools providing support, collaboration and challenge.  We are ‘one school with many doors.’  Our collective strength is epitomised through a shared focus on ensuring great teaching and curriculum, focussing on the most efficient use of resources in order to provide maximum value for money.  Although our schools retain their own individual, unique character our strength is built on synergy - the belief that we can achieve more collectively than alone.   

We have clear values and beliefs that guide us in how we act and in decisions that we make.  We are driven by the determination to ensure that our schools sit at the heart of their local communities and are drivers for educational excellence for all.  Our moral purpose is rooted in high aspiration and ambition for all children, including those who face the greatest disadvantage in our most deprived communities and children with Special Educational Needs and Disability. We are responsible for developing future citizens who have a voice that is heard, and who understand their place and responsibility in society. 

We ensure that we use evidence-based research to inform our educational priorities.  We recognise the importance of both high academic achievement and the development of the whole child through a wide range of opportunities with external partners, including the Royal Shakespeare Company and National Gallery. 

We expect all our school leaders to adhere to The Nolan Principles of Public Life which form the basis of the ethical standards expected of public office holders.
