Bishop Creighton Academy

Ethos and Values

We want every child in our academy to be the best that they can be...

The school promotes the development of pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural skills effectively. Pupils understand the school values well and how these apply to their community and wider Britain. They are taught to value difference and develop moral values. Ofsted, Feb 2018

We hope to develop independent and successful learners who are confident and eager to come to school each day. Our aim is to ensure that every child will leave Bishop Creighton with the skills, knowledge and confidence to succeed in the next steps in their education and future lives.

Whilst we acknowledge the crucial role that schools play in a child’s development, we believe that the most important teachers in a child’s life are their parents, as such we believe that strong partnerships with home and the Academy are crucial.

We also believe that education is about more than just academic success and, as such, aim to develop the whole child by providing a broad and balanced curriculum and wide range of experiences and enrichment activities throughout the year. 

We work really hard at ensuring our children reach their academic potential but also their social potential. And we see the importance of technology in there because actually that is the future of work.

We explicitly teach our pupils eight core values; respect, responsibility, compassion, justice, wisdom, hope, integrity and courage. These values are threaded through all that we do!

We also promote British Values across our academy.  At Bishop Creighton, we define British Values as;
Democracy -  respect for democracy and support for participation in the democratic process
The rule of law - respect for the basis on which the law is made and applies in England
Individual liberty - support and respect for the liberties of all within the law
Mutual respect tolerance of those of different faiths and beliefs - respect for and tolerance of different faiths and religious and other beliefs
