The child will always be at the centre, with personalised learning our starting point, making the challenges of 'Every Child Matters' a reality. Each child will be encouraged to develop a greater understanding of themselves as a learner, what their strengths are, how they can share these with others and their next steps in their continual learning journey. Pupils will be encouraged and inspired to believe in themselves, build dreams and aspirations and strive to achieve these.

Every child will be given the same opportunity to succeed, whatever his or her prior attainment. A key principle of Brighter Futures Academy Trust is that member Academies maintain their own character. However we aim to capture and maximize the collective expertise and skill set for the benefit of all members of the organisation.

Passion - Working in education, we have the ability to profoundly change children’s lives; the stakes are incredibly high. Our aim should always be to provide for the pupils of our Academies what we would want for our own children.

Urgency - The amount of time children spent in education is finite. We have a responsibility to ensure every moment a child is in a Brighter Futures School must be spent productively. Once wasted, it is gone forever and cannot be given back.

Positivity - Staff have a responsibility to be positive and supportive of each other. Negativity leads to low expectations and a culture where excuses are tolerated. Aspiration - Embodied in the Trust motto, “Where Children Succeed,” all members of staff aim for excellence in their individual professional roles.

Commitment - Staff are prepared to go the extra mile to provide the best possible education for their pupils. The interests of children are always placed ahead of those of staff.
