Ethos and Values

We aim for our young people to lead a happy and holistically prosperous life by developing the skills for them to move successfully along their life journeys. This includes academic outcomes that reflects the best of their abilities, being able to sustain relationships and employment and maintaining healthy households.

Young People’s Academy follows a reflective and restorative approach with students, as opposed to for or to them. This allows staff and students to work collaboratively in a solution focused thinking manner.

The common thread throughout the school is based on 3 reflective questions:

Where are we? – our current attainment, the work we have completed, in our performance targets

What have we tried? – our achievements so far, things that are working

How do we move forward? – our next actions, targets and goals

 

Values

We value our PRIDE principles and strongly align these with our BRITISH VALUES (Rule of Law, Democracy, Mutual Respect and Individual Liberty):

Perseverance – we keep trying, no matter what

Respectful – we care about each other’s’ feelings

Integrity – we are honest and fair

Diversity – we recognise our individual differences

Equality – we all have the same rights and responsibilities

 

Our aims are:

To work with our students to build confidence in their abilities to succeed at school and as adults.

To teach our students to keep themselves healthy and safe.

To help our students to learn to understand and manage their feelings.

To provide help for parents and carers to support and nurture their children.

To support schools across the borough where pupils are experiencing behavioural, emotional or social difficulties.

YPA has a good understanding and built a rapport with my son. He has been happy and well cared for to the point where he has met his full potential and thrived. The right balance and structure has provided for my son’s complex needs. Thank you for your continuous support.  Parent
