The West Grantham Academies Trust believes that the academies should be at the heart of their communities; that education goes beyond the classroom and the school day, and that everyone person’s role within the Trust is to deliver outstanding provision in whatever sphere, so that maximum progress by the pupils can be made
Whilst not every academy within the Trust is associated to the Church, the Trust upholds Christian values and believes itself to be fair minded, forward looking, innovative and inclusive.
The Trust holds the view that the task for educators has to be to plan and prepare pupils for a world we cannot envisage, but which we know will require skills such as the ability to empathise, collaborate, communicate, and to be independent, skills which can only be developed through the richest experiences possible both inside and outside the classroom.
The Trust understands that supportive parents and a skilled, well led workforce are essential for this vision to become reality. It, therefore, has community support and staff development as cornerstones of the provision.
The West Grantham Academy St John's is part of The West Grantham Academies Trust serving the community around it.
The West Grantham Academies Trust espouses the universal values of fairness, dignity, spirituality, inclusion and equality.
We support the aspiration of all individuals to grow, develop and experience success.
We believe that there is an imperative within education to address the key global concepts of:
- Human rights
- Sustainable development
- Conflict resolution
- Social justice
- Values and perceptions
- Global citizenship
Within a supportive environment where everyone is respected and values as individuals, we have adopted a curriculum model which gives priority to these elements in the context of a rigorous and unbending expectation that barriers to achievement will be removed wherever possible.
