Vision & Values
Our children deserve an environment in which they can flourish and achieve their potential, no matter what their academic or social starting point. At Ercall Wood Academy, we want to empower our children by supporting their growth as individuals who will make a difference and change the world for the better.
Our staff will hold the highest expectations of our children and challenge them to realise their full potential. The academy will be built on a culture of respect; respect for oneself, for others and for the environment. The academy has clear routines and responses to positive and negative behaviour creating a safe, purposeful learning environment for all. We are traditional in our view that the teachers are the experts in the classroom and should be respected as such. Our teachers hold the key to unlocking the potential of our young people through the delivery of a high-quality curriculum built on key knowledge and skills.
Ercall Wood Academy is proud to be the heartbeat of the community we serve, we want our students to learn about their cultural heritage and be proud of the role that our community has played, and will continue to play, in the development of Telford. Our children will take pride in themselves, in our academy and in our community, embracing the diversity amongst us and work together to achieve beyond their personal best through trust, honesty and tolerance.
We believe in the potential of all our students and their ability to achieve and be successful. We want our students to share the same high aspirations whether it is through academic success, sporting prowess or excellence in the arts. There are no limits to what can be achieved with hard work, resilience and determination.
Through their engagement with education, our students will create long lasting positive memories of their time at Ercall Wood Academy. Happy, confident and engaged children will become life-long learners who will always seek feedback to improve and progress. Our students will take an active and successful role in our local, national and global community ensuring a brighter future for all.
To create a culture, we need to live our values. Whenever we have a strategic decision to make, that decision should be based on the values that we believe. Below are outline examples of how we live our values as students and staff at the academy. This is not a final piece of work and we need to spend some time crafting out what this looks like.
An Empowered, Respectful Community of Aspiring Life-long Learners
We have the opportunity to control our destiny and make a real difference.
Respect for oneself, for others and for the environment.
Believe in our potential because anything is possible with hard work, resilience and determination.
