We strive every day to create an education that sees the young people of Cowes and the community beyond get the very best, not just academically but also in developing the skill set, confidence, attitudes and aspiration that will provide the catalyst for sustained success throughout their lives. We educate for life.
Our personal development curriculum ‘Everyone Matters’ enables us to actively teach our students a range of topics which enable them to understand the British values and make appropriate choices within them.
The topics are:
The safety and wellbeing of students is of paramount importance for us at the academy and our pastoral system is designed to ensure each child has the both the support and guidance that they need throughout their learning time with us. We actively encourage students to develop the key skills of teamwork, communication and respect in all that they do.
We welcome the opportunity given by the Department for Education in 2014 to promote British values more actively and to ensure they are taught in all UK schools. Our strong and successful ‘Everyone Matters’ curriculum ensures that British values live at the heart of our personal development programme, as well as more broadly throughout our work.
We accept admissions from all those entitled to an education under British law, including students of all faiths or none. We follow a rigorous diversity and equality scheme, which seeks to eradicate discrimination against any individual or group, regardless of faith, ethnicity, nationality, gender, sexuality, disability, political or financial status, or similar. We aim to serve all of our community.
