Ethos & Values
THE VALE WAY
‘’The Vale Way’’ underpins everything we do and has three main principles which apply to all members of the academy community.
EDUCATION AND ACADEMIC SUCCESS
We endeavour to provide all students, irrespective of ability, with the highest possible quality of learning and teaching. Examination results are a strong measure of our success as well as essential to students’ futures.
“JOIN IN, JOIN IN”
In order to make the most of their time at The Vale Academy we encourage our students to involve themselves in as many extra curricular activities as possible. These enhance students’ educational experiences as well as promoting fun and enjoyment.
THE VALE COMMUNITY
There is a strong sense of community at The Vale Academy and we expect our students to show care, loyalty and support for each other, to behave in a way which supports all students’ learning and to be kind, courteous and helpful. We emphasise the importance of teamwork, of tackling bullying and of showing understanding towards each other. We hope that by ensuring all members of the community promote “The Vale Way”, our academy is happy, strong and an excellent place to learn.
