Vision and values

Creating a haven in which children flourish

Mount Street Academy is a nurturing school. Our community takes pride in helping every individual to thrive and work to achieve our vision of creating a haven in which children flourish.

We believe that every child should love learning and have high standards and expectations of themselves. Our children deserve and need us to provide more than just the National Curriculum. Life has so much to offer and our children have so much more to learn and experience.

With this in mind we have worked to prioritise the things we want our children to experience during their time with us. These priorities, or 'drivers', underpin all areas of school life and every decision we make regarding our children’s learning and experiences in school. They are personal to our school and reflect the social and educational needs of our local area.

The five drivers are: Determination, Responsibility, Empathy, Aspiration, and Make a Difference. These are also our school values...

Our values

Children at Mount Street Academy are expected to follow our rules, which are captured in our values:

  • Determination - we never give up
  • Responsibility - we are honest
  • Empathy - we are kind
  • Aspiration - we aim high
  • Make a difference - we look after our world
Our values are displayed around the school through a group of characters called The DREAM Team to help the children recognise and remember them. Every term, we focus on one value and celebrate the ways in which children have demonstrated this value.
