OUR ETHOS

LEARNING FOR LIFE

Our ethos is to 'provide creative learning experiences, which will inspire and challenge our children to maximise their academic potential' ensuring 'children leave us as honest, kind and respectful young people, equipped with the skills to continue their journey as lifelong learners'.  

OUR VISION

At the end of their time at The Flitch Green Academy, our vision is for all children to have:

- Developed a strong work ethic both for their own benefit and the benefit of others.
- Developed practical and social skills that support the transition to secondary school.
- Developed, through the teaching or our ethos, self-respect and respect for others, whatever their ability, race, religion or culture. 
- Gained the skills to work independently, either on their own or as part of a group, and take responsibility for both themselves and others. 

To achieve this The Flitch Green Academy will:

- Ensure equal opportunities for all and promote the British Values.
- Work in partnership with parents/carers, the local community and partner schools. 
- Provide a safe and secure environment where children will feel safe, happy and supported both pastorally and academically.
- Plan and deliver a relevant curriculum which is inclusive, challenging and creative.

COOL COLLABORATOR: Team work, sharing, respect and communication

Governance

Governors work together to provide an independent oversight of the management and operation of the Academy, with the aim of improving the quality of the education provided, raising standards and making decisions in the best interests of the Academy’s pupils, staff and wider community.

 

The Governing Body does not run the Academy or become involved with daily management; this is the job of the Principal and the leadership team. Governors help shape the aims and aspirations of the Academy, bringing a range of perspectives to all issues.

 

There are a number of key aspects to the work of the Governing Body. They set policies, establish the Academy development plan, ensure that public funds are spent appropriately and effectively, ensure statutory duties are complied with and provide rigorous accountability.

 

All Governors are volunteers who meet as a Full Governing Body at least four times a year. 

 

The Governing Body of The Flitch Green Academy is comprised of:

Chair of Governors: Carly Bucknell     

Co Vice Chair of Governors: Jon Shakallis and Katie Bailey

Parent Governors:

Amy Hawes

Alan Ellwood

Jo Brooker
