Ethos & Values
A healthy balance between academic rigour and fun ensures our children grow into well rounded global citizens with a life-long insatiable thirst for learning new skills and acquiring new knowledge. Supported throughout their journey by a dedicated team of staff, our children grow into independent learners equipped with the attributes to achieve their aspirations.
At Atkinson Road we firmly believe that outstanding progress is the responsibility of the children as well as the staff. Our school motto reflects this, emphasising being the best, rests with each individual pupil. Year on year we have outstanding progress results which is testament to our high expectations of children at all ability levels. We pride ourselves on our successes, as do our pupils.
Our children develop into successful young people with ambition and self-belief. We have a culture of excellence in our school, where the gifts and talents of all our children are enthusiastically explored. Our children develop the skills of determination, collaboration and team work. They become strong decision makers who achieve their full potential. Our school culture is based upon a belief that everyone has the fundamental right to autonomy and freedom in their learning.
