'High Expectations, lead to High Achievers'

Our Vision and Ethos High Expectations lead to High Achievers


To ensure outstanding progress for all learners by holding high expectations and challenging all pupils for academic, creative, cultural and social accomplishments with a broad, vibrant and balanced curriculum.

Elm Academy work on the principal that:

“………… the quality of an education system cannot exceed the quality of its teachers.”

Sir Michael Barber


Elm Academy demands high expectations for all. In everything Elm Academy does we always refer back to our mantra that encapsulates the belief that Elm Academy must have outstanding teaching and achievement.

A culture of high expectation leads to the highest achievers as we all thrive to better ourselves. Children and staff are challenged and supported to get the best possible outcomes. Children, with the support of their teacher, set themselves goals and targets which they then challenge themselves to meet.
