OUR
VISION & VALUES

At All Saints National Academy, we have a future vision of allowing all of our pupils to unlock their true potential and shine. Within the nurturing ethos that will be woven through each and every classroom, children will be given the opportunity to flourish whilst learning in a fun and creative rich environment. Our staff team have created a vision and set of values that seeks to develop the whole child and provides them with skills that will allow them to function as exemplary citizens of Bloxwich and beyond. 

 

Our Academy community consulted in the Summer 2019 and decided on the following core values and the Year group/ Stakeholder that are experts in that value:

  • Dignity & Respect (Reception)

  • Community (Y1&2)

  • Hope & Aspiration (Y3&4)

  • Wisdom  (Y5&6)

  • Resilience (staff)  

In the Autumn Term we consulted again with all our community to identify

3 words that symbolise our academy. This consultation has informed our

Worship Council who in collaboration with our Trust Christian Distinctiveness

Advisor have created our new vision statement.

"We are a safe, considerate and caring family who have fun together.

We are determined to persevere in order to achieve our best.

We respect all in our community, working as a team to support each other to grow in confidence.

With faith in our hearts we achieve and succeed

The wordle below shows the responses that we received.
