At Ryecroft Academy we strive to ensure that our pupils are confident, self-assured learners who attend well, are proud of their school and sincere in the value that they place on their education.

Their impeccable behaviour for learning and conduct reflects their own self-driven determination to take every advantage of the opportunities that become available to them each day both during the school day and outside of the school day. Strong behaviour for learning also reflects the school’s effective strategies to promote high standards and is a direct consequence of the engaging and diverse curriculum.

Our culture, which seeks to embrace every member of our community, sees our pupils demonstrating genuine care for one another.  We aim for our pupils to regard the achievements and successes of others as highly as their own.

It is of paramount importance to us that our pupils are safe and secure at all times, free from bullying and empowered to flourish, achieve and prosper.

We will demonstrate our commitment to achieving our vision and aims by:

  • Celebrating pupils’ effort and achievements, no matter how big or small.

  • Promoting and celebrating individual and collaborative team effort and achievement.

  • Promoting the importance of excellent attendance and punctuality.

  • Dealing with bullying, racism etc. swiftly and effectively.

  • Creating a positive environment that promotes pupils’ health and well-being.

  • Using the curriculum effectively to teach pupils about how to be healthy and stay safe, including when using the internet.
