Our Ethos and Values

Our Mission Statement

WE are a family of schools who exist to INSPIRE each pupil to believe in themselves so they experience great SUCCESS through our commitment to EXCELLENCE. Our philosophy is one of boundless aspiration...the sky is the limit!

WISE in short stands for 'We Inspire Success and Excellence'.


Ethos

Morpeth Road Academy has a fully inclusive ethos where all members of the school community are encouraged to have high aspirations for themselves. Learning, leading to high academic attainment, is at the heart of each academy with all children, irrespective of inherent ability, striving to fulfil their potential. Learning experiences are woven into an exciting curriculum which is broad, balanced and relevant, where children develop core basic skills which are transferable to everyday life situations.

Children develop as confident individuals, successful learners and responsible citizens in a safe, high quality learning environment which is up-to-date and equipped with the necessary technologies to prepare them for life in the twenty-first century. They have a strong voice along with their parents and wider stakeholders.

Comprehensive, extended provision supports children in developing specific gifts and talents and places the school at the heart of the community which it serves.

Morpeth Road Academy operates an open-door policy with parents, carers and the local community. All are welcomed into the Academy so that all can participate and share skills and experiences with the children.

Governance

Morpeth Road Academy is part of Wise Academies. In addition to a Local Governing Body, a Regional Board and Board of Directors oversees the work of the Academy, and takes a close interest in its performance and provision.  Further details can be found here .

We are always keen to hear from parents/carers who would be interested in becoming a member of the Governing Body; please get in touch via the 'Contact Us' page if you're interested.
