Our Vision and Values underpin all that we do at Ilsham Academy. They run through everyday life at the school and shape how we act, how we treat each other and reinforce our curriculum offer. Our Vision and Values were constructed through a consultation process involving all of the children, our staff, our families and the team at St Matthias Church so that they reflect our community, and we all have a shared understanding of what it is like to be part of the Ilsham family.
Our vision is ‘To grow and flourish wherever you are planted’. Our children understand that they can succeed and flourish in whatever they choose to do and wherever they choose to do it, wherever they are planted. This is true of not only the children but of our community, the adults working in the school, our parents and carers and St Matthias Church. We hold high aspirations for our children and our community so that they can flourish and be prepared for their next step in life.
This is underpinned by our school values with associated bible stories to support children in understanding their meaning. At Ilsham, as a church school family, we want to be:
The highest of expectations ensure our commitment to maintain and build upon outstanding outcomes for all of our children. Our values drive the curriculum experience that we offer our children. We foster an environment in which children’s contributions and children as individuals are valued and respected. We have a vision of our school as a productive, stimulating and rich learning environment in which children and staff experience equal opportunity in all things in order that their true potential is realised. Improving basic skills is the responsibility of all staff.
