Values and Ethos

Engage, Encourage and Enrich

The Trust and Senior Leadership Team at Mo Mowlam Academy have very ambitious aims:

We want our students to:

  • Be proud of their Academy;
  • Attain the highest level possible in all areas of academy life; academic, social, emotional and physical development.
  • Develop lively and enquiring minds, formulating questions and seeking answers in a variety of ways.
  • Develop a sense of self-esteem and self-discipline, allied to a positive ethos of community involvement.
  • Acquire a growing awareness of the needs and rights of others.
  • Become responsible for their own actions and decisions, whilst developing morals and ethical values.

We aim to:

  • Provide a caring and friendly atmosphere by providing an environment where students are respected and valued and where individual needs are recognised and supported.
  • Bring out the best in every child irrespective of any learning difficulties they may have.
  • Provide as many different experiences, ideas and activities for each child in a safe and secure environment.
  • Help your child to care about those around them.
  • Support your child in leading an independent and purposeful life.
  • Offer a broad and balanced curriculum modified as appropriate to meet individual needs.
  • Create an atmosphere which encourages team work and values the contributions of all parties.
  • Motivate staff through strong leadership at all levels, which offers direction and democratic management.
  • Provide a broad curriculum which enables students to make positive decisions about their future.
  • Provide excellent transition support and guidance for students leaving the academy and moving onto further education, training, or employment. Their success is our success.

We would like parents and carers to:

  • Ensure your child attends academy regularly and punctually.
  • Become actively involved in your child’s education, both at home and school.
  • Be part of the Academy Community.
  • Support our teachers in working together for the benefit of your child.

Our approach to all curriculum areas will take these aims into account.
