Our Mission, Vision and Values
Our mission statement encapsulates our approach and what we prioritise daily:
Creating opportunity. Inspiring excellence. Shaping tomorrow.
We want to provide every child in our care with the best possible start in life and motivate them to fulfil their individual potential and make a full contribution to their communities and to society.
Building on our mission, we have an ambitious vision for pupils at Blacko:
Through a child-centred approach and exceptional educational experiences we will inspire excellence from all, develop independence, build confidence and ensure readiness for tomorrow.
We believe every child can achieve, and we continually encourage high aspirations amongst pupils and staff. To this end, leaders adopt an evidence-informed approach to developing all aspects of school provision and are committed to high quality professional development of staff, so that we have an exceptional curriculum and pedagogy at the school. High quality pastoral care and support aligned with diagnostic assessment of needs and targeted interventions, help to ensure appropriate provision for every individual.
Values and behaviours:
Three core values underpin all trust decisions and policies and are at the heart of every aspect of school life:
Ambition - We are determined to achieve and believe everyone can succeed
Respect - We are considerate of everyone and our environment
Collaboration - We are a community who believe we achieve more by working together
Three associated behaviours follow from each value. These are fundamental to building a strong learning community and creating the best possible environment for all members of the school to flourish.
