Ethos & Values

Middlestown Primary Academy seeks to create a welcoming atmosphere where everyone is valued and is encouraged to achieve their potential. Excellent behaviour is engendered by positive strategies, which are clearly communicated and equitably delivered.

All stakeholders have a shared belief and a commitment to success. We endeavour to forge strong links between the school and the community in order to place the school firmly at its centre and to build a bright future for our pupils.

In addition we aim to:

  • Ensure the health and safety of each pupil.
  • Create a friendly, stimulating, exiting and supportive environment in which all are included, valued and supported, enabling them to achieve success.
  • Provide an exciting, broad and balanced curriculum which displays continuity and progression. This will provide pupils with the knowledge, skills, understanding and qualifications to promote lifelong learning.
  • Ensure that all children have equal opportunities to access all learning activities.
  • Encourage children to have a positive approach to learning and to develop independency so they persist when challenges arise.
  • Recognise and cater for any additional needs of those pupils with learning difficulties.
  • Provide a learning environment which is well planned and resourced.
  • Encourage children to develop a set of values including self-respect, self-discipline and respect for others.
  • Provide pupils with a range of skills and attitudes to make a positive contribution and enable them to achieve economic well-being.
  • To develop an awareness for the need to have a healthy life style, emotionally, socially and physically and the benefits of a balanced diet and exercise.

The Accord Multi Academy Trust is an educational charity established in September 2016 that is currently made up of four academies who were the founding members of the Trust. In September 2016 Horbury Academy and Ossett Academy & Sixth Form College came together, moving away from their stand-alone Trust status and were joined in December 2016 by Horbury Primary Academy and Middlestown Primary Academy.

The overarching vision for the Trust is to work in one ‘Accord – celebrating the differences of each academy through strong collaboration in order to inspire all members of our learning community to be the best that they can be.
