Our Vision – Our School Values
‘Roots to Grow and Wings to Fly’
The Akrotiri School Vision
We always have the highest expectations of all our pupils at Akrotiri School, and we know them well. In our school we promote an ethos of respect and empathy, where diversity is valued and celebrated. Open and honest communication with parents, carers and specialists is fostered. We actively seek to engage with all members of the Akrotiri community in a positive and supportive manner.
At Akrotiri School we celebrate perseverance, resilience and risk taking, ensuring our children welcome challenge and are not frightened to make mistakes. All achievements are celebrated and shared in school and the wider community. The relationship between our staff and children underpins inspirational, supportive and effective teaching and learning. Our pupils are taught learning behaviours through our learning super heroes; Roxy Relationships, Charlie Challenge, Eddie Engage and Ruby reflective. We aim for all our children to be independent learners with self-belief and an abiding respect for others.
At Akrotiri School we strive to ensure learning is focussed towards further improvement and progress taking account of our unique context. We aim to instil a strong grounding (our roots) for future success (our wings). Our children are encouraged to take ownership of and responsibility for their learning.
High quality teaching is a key priority at Akrotiri School and the relationship between staff and children underpins inspirational, supportive and effective teaching and learning. We aim to ensure that high quality feedback further supports or moves learning on. We challenge all children to achieve academic, creative, sporting and personal accomplishment within a broad, vibrant and enriched curriculum.
Our School Governance Committee (SGC) are a vital part of our school, providing an important link to our parents, staff and wider community. They promote ambition and drive through their challenge and support in all aspects of school life.
