Vision & Values


Our Academy’s Vision

At Birley Primary Academy, we aim to create a safe and positive learning environment that exhibits a sense of community and belonging, based upon respect for ourselves and others and through being mindful of beliefs, cultures and views.

In the classroom, we want to develop inquisitive minds, ask challenging questions and encourage thoughtful responses. Through high-quality learning experiences, we strive for our children to be courageous and to develop a strength of character that will enable and equip every child to achieve to their full potential in all areas of the curriculum.

Through a personalised, nurturing and fully inclusive approach to learning, our purpose is to take children on a journey of understanding through a knowledge-rich curriculum that will ensure children are capably skilled to tackle the next steps on their learning journey in addition to developing responsible citizens ready to meet the challenges of the future.

To achieve this, the academy strive towards a collaborative approach, which includes working closely with our families and our local community. Working together, we have a shared responsibility to encourage aspirations and to create responsible life-long learners.

Our Core Values

Linked to our vision for the academy, our whole school community wholeheartedly agreed upon character traits that we truly value. It is our belief that developing these traits, dispositions and virtues with our children will inform their motivation and guide their conduct so that they reflect wisely, learn eagerly, behave with integrity and cooperate consistently well with others. In successfully developing these qualities within our children, we believe they will be fully equipped with everything they require to flourish in our society.
