Values and vision
Morley Newlands Academy's mission statement is: “Achieving and enjoying: we believe children need high standards, we believe they will best reach those standards by enjoying the learning, by active and collaborative, by understanding the why and how of learning.”
The school endeavours to achieve its aim by removing barriers, identifying and releasing potential, and creating curious minds. It believes in celebrating and embracing diversity and difference, supporting and guiding its pupils, and providing children with a range of learning opportunities.
“Pupils make regular independent use of their literacy, numeracy, and information and communication technology skills in other subjects. More-able pupils respond well to teachers expecting the best of them and to interesting lessons. As a result, the proportion of pupils achieving better than expected in English and mathematics by the end of Year 6 is increasingly above average.”
“The headteacher and staff know what needs to be done to make the school even more successful. Middle and senior leaders make full use of rigorous systems to check the quality of all aspects of the school's work and plan for its future development. This has led to significant improvements in the quality of teaching and the curriculum and to pupils’ achievement since the last inspection.”
