Vision and Values

At Co-op Academy Nightingale we provide a safe and caring environment for all our community. We challenge and support all our pupils to be the best that they can be and provide them with the foundations to be successful in school and beyond.

To achieve this our Staff will:

  • Have high expectations of themselves and others in their daily work and for their future
  • Work hard to reduce educational disadvantage by providing engaging, challenging, well planned teaching that enables children to develop as confident learners
  • Ensure teaching provides opportunities for children to develop and demonstrate the characteristics of a good learner
  • Provide a curriculum that meets the needs of all pupils academic, physical, social and emotional development and wellbeing
  • Teach children the importance of right and wrong and help them develop as caring and responsible citizens
  • Teach children how to keep themselves safe and healthy
  • Treat children with respect regardless of age, gender, sexual orientation, religion, race, ability, disability
  • Apply co-operative and ethical values in all our work

Our Children will:

  • Come to school every day (unless ill), follow the school rules and work hard
  • Have high expectations of themselves and others in their daily work and for their future
  • Be resilient and understand that sometimes things are difficult but that hard work and perseverance will be rewarded with success
  • Respect themselves, each other, our school and our world

Our Governors will:

  • Support and challenge the school on all its work
  • Ensure the school is efficient and effective, promoting the highest educational aspirations and outcomes for all its children
  • Ensure financial security, stability and probity

Our community will:
