Values and Ethos
Newmarket Academy has ambitions to be a school that every member of the community can be proud of. We have three clear aims for our students. We want the young people of Newmarket to be:
Successful learners, who can enjoy and understand learning, are equipped with the skills to adapt and cope with an ever changing and unpredictable world and adopt a positive attitude towards lifelong learning. They have imagination and creativity and are emotionally intelligent and independent.
Confident individuals, who understand how they learn, why they are learning and what they are learning, what they need to do to progress in their learning and how they can support the learning of others.
Responsible citizens, who understand their responsibility to themselves and others, how they make positive contributions to the life of the school and community. They also understand their responsibilities in relation to local and global challenges. In these contexts their actions and behaviours are driven by values and their strong sense of morality. Globally aware, citizens of the world understand that context is wider than locality
Our approach to learning and the development of the individual child is based on 8 core values. We have built our new school around these values and hope that they are evident in every aspect and phase of our school. The core values are:
COMPASSION is about caring about others. It is about wanting to help those who are hurting. Compassion is showing kindness to all people.
HONESTY is being truthful with the decisions we make and the actions we take every day.
RESPECT honours the good things that others and we do. Respect values people and things for what or who they are. Respect honours people and things of special worth.
WISDOM is gained through learning and doing. Wisdom is knowing what to do. It is knowing right from wrong, good from bad.
COURAGE is being brave when we are scared. It is being able to do something when we feel bad or fear we might fail.
RESILIENCE is about being able to stay strong when things go wrong.
INTEGRITY is being true to yourself and your beliefs.
RESPONSIBILTY is taking care of people and things that are ours. Responsibility is keeping our promises. It is doing our duty for our family, school, community and country.
Your child will complete Key Stage 3 in Year 8 and then move to Year 9 where they will have the chance to begin their GCSE courses; providing them with greater opportunities for high academic outcomes.
