Academy Information

Wold Academy is part of the David Ross Education Trust and is acknowledged by Ofsted as a school which prides itself on the support and safety which its students are offered.

The Academy recognises that an excellent school should offer effective teaching as well as a nurturing of its pupils to become kind, respectful individuals that are ready for whatever challenges await in their future.

Our Mission Statement

At Wold Academy we believe in ‘Broadening Horizons’ for all of our pupils through providing a rich and varied curriculum that supports them to be ready for the next stage in their education and to become well rounded and productive members of society.

Our Principles

Our curriculum is underpinned by 4 core principles.

These represent the fundamental aims we have for our pupils.

We aim to ensure all of our pupils:

  • Aspire to be the best that they can be

  • Respect and celebrate diversity and individuality

  • Are effective and confident communicators

  • Love learning and live life to the full

  • These principles are golden threads that will run through our curriculum and we will plan for them with relentless consistency in order to achieve the best outcomes for our pupils.

We are committed to providing a safe and stimulating learning environment for children and staff where:

  1. Social, personal and academic skills are developed.

  2. Self-esteem and self-reliance are nurtured.

  3. Standards of excellence for life and for work are promoted in all areas.

Our criteria for a successful schooling experience, one which we are constantly measuring ourselves against, is as follows:

  1. School and learning should be enjoyable, productive and an integral part of every child’s life where a child can develop empathy with his/her surroundings.

  2. School should create a caring and happy environment where all children experience success and achievement.

  3.  School should recognise each member as an individual with particular needs and talents and develop a forum where each member can join with ideas and share experiences and impressions with others.

  4. School should offer a well balanced and broad curriculum that will ensure that all targets set by the National Curriculum are available to our children and should include academic, cultural, social, spiritual and physical development and growth, preparing pupils for the experiences, opportunities and responsibilities of secondary education and adult life.
