Through outstanding leadership we, at the Noel-Baker Academy, will provide the highest quality education to enable every pupil to realise their full potential.
To achieve our vision we prioritise the four core principles for which our name stands:
Lead ~ to show the way; to be first or foremost
In every aspect of life the ability to lead is essential. Strong leadership is the key to the success of our schools. We will develop leadership skills in everyone who attends one of them, ensuring the development of pupils as leaders of their own learning.
Empower ~ to give power to; to enable
At Noel-Baker Academy pupils are empowered to have high aspirations for their futures. We nurture and challenge pupils to take responsibility, make decisions and work together so they grow into confident and resilient young people.
Achieve ~ to accomplish; to get or attain by effort
We believe in achievement in its broadest sense and that enjoyment of learning is crucial to success. We continually look for and reward achievement in every individual in our schools. We also know that a strong command of English and maths is vital as a foundation for the whole curriculum and prioritise learning in these core subjects.
Drive ~ to cause and guide progress; to impel forward
We will provide the very best education and training for every individual in our schools and will ensure that this is delivered. We value excellent teaching, underpinned by high quality professional development and will constantly move forwards, using and instigating the best ideas and practice.
We also understand that children need to be motivated if they are to succeed in life and we will provide a stimulating curriculum and environment which will prepare them for their futures with confidence and determination.
