Academy ethos and vision

'Alliance Ambition Achievement'

New Silksworth Academy is an exciting, newly formed partnership between New Silksworth Infant Academy and New Silksworth Junior Academy working within the Extol Academy Trust.

At New Silksworth Academy, staff are committed to helping each pupil achieve his or her full potential personally, academically and socially, and to equip them with the skills, qualifications and love of learning that they will need to be successful in their next stage of schooling and the world they will join as adults.

At New Silksworth Academy we ensure that every child is happy, safe and is able to learn successfully in a supportive, vibrant environment. We are a learning organisation, not only for our pupils, but also for every member of staff. It is only appropriate within a school setting that staff should model the importance we place upon learning and so our staff attend regular professional development sessions and are committed to the continued development of their skills and knowledge. Excellent teaching is at the heart of our approach and we work in partnership within the Extol Academy Trust where each school can celebrate and recognise each other’s strengths and learn with, and from, each other.

New Silksworth Academy was formed on 1st September 2016 and it is our mission to ensure that all pupils educated within the Academy fulfil their potential and leave our schools fully equipped with the qualifications, skills and personal attributes to be successful in whatever they wish to do.

We know that young people only have one chance at an education and so we ensure that this is of the very highest standard.
