At Gonville Academy we strive together to achieve excellence in all we do. Working with our community, we aim to provide opportunities for local children to reach their full potential in a safe, happy and multicultural environment.
Gonville Academy is a learning community, which aims to equip students with the knowledge, skills and mindset they need to become leaders in their chosen fields.
We do this through teaching students to:
- read fluently, write creatively and develop high level number and problem solving skills;
- speak confidently, using accurate grammar;
- develop a growth mindset, where they welcome challenge and aspire to learn more about the world they live in;
- respect and understand each other's cultures and backgrounds;
- view themselves as role models and global citizens.
Our PUPAC values are the foundation for all learning and interactions at Gonville Academy. We expect all members of our learning community; staff, parents and carers, children and visitors to have our values at the heart of everything they do.
‘Striving Together for Excellence’
At Gonville Academy we use the three Cs to guide us as we strive together for excellence.
Inspire creativity by promoting and fostering the confidence to take risks, celebrate each other’s individuality and develop imagination.
Promote health and sustainability so that our children recognise the need to work together to protect the natural world, knowing that their actions today can make a difference to the future.
To produce honest children who have integrity and sound personal values such as respect and an awareness of the needs of others.
Foster skills across the curriculum, so that our children are able to combine skills and knowledge in order to become successful learners.
Instill aspiration in everyone so that they reach their full potential and strive beyond.
Foster resilience by creating a safe environment for all members of our community through building self-esteem and developing a supportive culture where asking for help and never giving up are valued.
Encourage positive communication between all members of the school community, so that children learn that collaboration and empathy are essential in order to build successful relationships.
Widen our vision of the world and create a sense of belonging by promoting an awareness of and pride in diverse cultures to unite our children as a community of responsible global citizens.
We also recognise our STEP values, which are shared across our academy trust. We teach children that these are our family values.
