At Heath Lane Academy, we expect high standards of behaviour and academic effort. Our staff, pupils and parents understand that high standards are crucial as this sets the culture which enables us to achieve our mission of 'developing good people'. Our culture is built around our values:
We believe our pupils should be kind to one another, develop responsibility and be respectful. Pupils know that success needs hard work, however we also ensure that pupils who are struggling to keep up receive the help and support they need to catch up from our teachers.
We work in an environment where we are all working to make children’s lives better and futures brighter. The goal is always that excellent behaviour and excellent learning should be second nature, it should simply be the way that we are. Our pupils and staff share a belief that respect is essential in life and we teach our pupils to demonstrate respect for themselves and others.
At Heath Lane, pupils are encouraged to be active participants in the whole community. They know how lucky they are, and they are encouraged to think about those who are less fortunate. We want our pupils to be compassionate, considerate and kind, always looking after those who haven’t been given the same opportunities.
