Vision and Ethos

Our vision

is for Nightingale Community Academy students to leave school as confident learners and participative citizens, having gained the skills, qualifications and attributes that will enable them to take their place in wider society.

Our mission

is to provide education, support and guidance that enable students to:

Learn and achieve

Fulfil their academic potential

Be included in society

Overcome their barriers to learning

Behave and interact appropriately with others, adult and peers

Make appropriate choices

Shared ethos

A code of conduct for the way we live together in our school community is drawn up with the children in each classroom and regularly reinforced. The following is our constitution throughout the school. This is shared with parents/carers and students.

Respect myself and others and treat everyone with kindness.

Keep myself and others safe.

Make good choices that help me to learn.

Be in the right place at the right time.

Ask for help.

Stop, think and then act responsibly.

The principal and leadership team, well supported by the Orchard Hill College and Academy Trust, have provided strong leadership, which has had a positive impact on the school’s effectiveness. As a result, there have been improvements in all areas, most noticeably in pupils’ behaviour and attitudes, the curriculum and in the wider opportunities for pupils.
