Values and vision

The Parker E-ACT Academy wants to provide a supportive environment for pupils to learn in and achieve their full potential, both in and out of the classroom. It wishes for students to grow into caring and considerate young adults, with respect for themselves and each other. The secondary school has the motto: unity, strength and endeavor. The academy is committed to being a fully inclusive institution for children from all walks of life, regardless of their background or ability. There are four core principles at The Parker E-ACT Academy: raising educational standards, tailoring learning to the needs of the individual, creating an inclusive culture and working in partnership with the local community. The Parker E-ACT Academy offers a range of extra-curricular activities for pupils to get involved in and learn new skills, including The Duke of Edinburgh Award.


"The provision for pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development is comprehensive. Academy leaders take their responsibilities for equality very seriously and ensure that all pupils are treated equally and with respect. There is a wide range of opportunities to explore British values, respect, cultural differences, personal development and other religions. Teachers are skilled in managing controversial conversations with pupils, including those relating to extremism. As a result, pupils feel confident about engaging in debate."
