PUPAC - STEP Academy Trust Values

Passion — Working in education, we have the ability to profoundly change children’s lives; the stakes are incredibly high. Our aim should always be to provide for the pupils of our Academies what we would want for our own children.

Urgency — The amount of time children spend in education is finite. We have a responsibility to ensure that every moment a child is in a STEP Academy must be spent productively. Once wasted, it is gone forever and cannot be given back.

Positivity — Staff have a responsibility to be positive and supportive of each other. Negativity leads to low expectations and a culture where excuses are tolerated.

Aspiration — Embodied in the Trust motto, “Striving Together for Excellence in Partnership”, all members of staff aim for excellence in their individual professional roles.

Commitment — Staff are prepared to go the extra mile to provide the best possible education for their pupils. The interests of children are always placed ahead of those of staff.
