Ethos and Values - "Promoting Success"

The Cheadle Academy aims to promote success by preparing its young people for life and to equip them for citizenship. The successful realisation of these overall aims will be through improving the quality of teaching and learning which is fundamental to improving motivation, raising levels of achievement and generating a desire to learn for each individual.

To provide equal opportunities for all to develop their individuality and realise their potential through the delivery of the National Curriculum Programmes of Study, the setting of targets and the process of Assessment, Recording and Reporting.

To enable students to acquire the knowledge, skills and understanding relevant to their present and future needs by recognising that each student is a complex individual with a wide range of different skills, abilities and interests and the need to develop the whole individual.

To foster qualities of creativity, imagination, independence, spirituality and aesthetic appreciation by recognising that for any individual to thrive and to show initiative they must feel secure and valued.

To provide a happy, secure and caring environment in which everyone can develop confidence, self- respect and self-esteem by recognising that society as a whole has an important contribution to make in realising these aims.

To enhance the educational and social development of students through partnership with parents and the wider community by recognising that we live in an environment that supports a multicultural society containing a wide range of social and economic difference.

The Cheadle Academy aims to foster understanding, appreciation and care for others and for the world in which we live.
