Delta Academies Trust Vision and Values

Our vision is based on the values and the principles of the Delta Academies Trust, the academy sponsor.  Our academies pride themselves on being: 

Institutions with high expectations both for the individual and where there will be a collective responsibility for raising community aspirations.

Caring schools, based upon social responsibility, honesty, equality and consideration for others.

Highly successful schools where self-help, self-determination and self-improvement are encouraged.

Innovative and energising learning centres which develop lively and enquiring minds for both students and staff.

Schools which promote inclusion rather than exclusion and, by working in partnership with local agencies and offering a personalised curriculum for all, striving to adopt a zero exclusion policy.

Schools where courtesy, co-operation, enterprise and initiatives are paramount and where tolerance rather than intolerance is practised.

Schools which are at the centre of the community as a resource, in their services to others and in promoting community and social cohesion.

Centres of educational excellence, where no individual is left behind and where all students of any age or background are provided with the support to become responsible and successful citizens.

Delta Academies Trust

Delta Academies Trust is a not for profit charitable organisation that sponsors a chain of academies under a single funding agreement with the Secretary of State for Education.

The overall aim of the Delta is to foster learning communities which promote and provide excellence in teaching, learning and relationships through high expectations and adherence to traditional values and standards.  At its core, the Delta values high quality educational provision for families firmly rooted in the priorities of the local community.

Delta believe in supporting schools as the preferred choice for educational provision within their local community, consequently, we believe all students should have a distinctive offer relevant to their needs and the community in which they live.

We believe in the autonomy of local schools and provide challenge and support on their journey of school improvement.

Our partnership encompasses 41 academies and schools that are currently judged across the whole Ofsted effectiveness range, and across the widest possible range of contexts, phase and geographical location, including urban and rural schools and those of religious character.
