Ethos & Values
Washington Academy is a place where all members of its community feel welcome, safe, and experience a sense of belonging. We believe that only where this exists can learning and personal development progress successfully.
Washington Academy is seeking to develop the whole person in a dynamic and progressive learning environment that applies the best from the academic theory and practice of teaching. Working in partnership with students, parents, and other members of the local and national community, we seek to raise levels of personal and social awareness and that impact significantly on the life chances of our students.
As part of Consilium Academies, we're committed to the following Equality Objectives:
- Embed a strong data management system across the Trust, supporting each academy to monitor and analyse pupil achievement and progress by ethnicity, gender, and disability, and act on any trends or patterns in this data that identify the need for additional support for pupils with the aim of narrowing the gap for equality groups.
- Implement a Trust-wide HR information system, ensuring that this incorporates the ability to provide robust reporting on and monitoring of equalities data.
- Through the use of peer networks across the Trust, ensure that the PSHE curriculum across the Trust is broad and balanced, and provides students with a high-quality education surrounding equality and diversity.
- Plan systematically to improve our understanding and promotion of diversity, establishing an equality and diversity focus group to drive this aspect of our work and ensure that our equality and diversity practices are sector-leading.
