Our Vision and Values

Part of the Cumbria Education Trust

There are currently two secondary academies and two primary school academies in the Cumbria Education Trust: William Howard School; Workington Academy; Yewdale Primary School; and Longtown Primary School.

All the schools within the Cumbria Education Trust share a common vision to enable every young person to reach their potential. Whilst working within the shared vision and values of the Trust, each academy has its own unique ethos to reflect the community they serve.

It is the Trust’s aim to not only develop the standard of education in the Cumbria region, but also aid its social and economic regeneration.

Visit the Cumbria Education Trust website.

 

At Yewdale Primary School there exists a culture of empathy, care, motivation and engagement that inspires a thirst for knowledge and a love of learning. It is a place where people’s opinions and achievements are recognised and celebrated.

 

We value individuality and we appreciate that everyone is unique, having diverse strengths and needs at different times.

Our commitment to develop the whole child in terms of social, moral, spiritual and cultural learning is intrinsic throughout the entire Academy community.

 

Yewdale aspires to be a vibrant learning setting, where trust is implicit between all stakeholders. It is a happy, safe, warm and caring environment, where everyone is willing to challenge themselves and work together; offering support and encouragement sharing their knowledge, skills and experiences.

 

Stakeholders stretch their boundaries where achievements are celebrated without a fear of failure.

A goal of continuous improvement

Our goal is for our academy to consistently improve while developing global citizens for the future.

 

The importance of collaboration

Academy transformation requires strong and stable support. We have an unwavering belief in the power of collaboration to support our staff, which has led to us working successfully with a network of associate academy’s through the Cumbria Alliance of System Leaders (CASL). Through the Cumbria Education Trust, we will also be involved with a wide range of organisations including local authorities, universities and further education colleges.

 

With autonomy comes opportunity

We invest in outstanding opportunities for our staff to learn and grow so that, in turn, they are able to invest in our pupils. Our aim is to be as autonomous as possible, yet fully accountable. Flexibility is important rather than a ‘one size fits all’ outlook.

Promoting British Values

In accordance with The Department for Education we aim to actively promote British values in schools to ensure young people leave school prepared for life in modern Britain. Pupils are encouraged to regard people of all faiths, races and cultures with respect and tolerance and understand that while different people may hold different views about what is ‘right’ and ‘wrong’, all people living in England are subject to its law.

 

The Key Values are:

  • democracy
  • rule of law
  • individual liberty
  • mutual respect
  • tolerance of those of different faiths and beliefs
