Our vision and values are at the core of everything we do. They underpin our teaching and learning, and provide an environment which prepares our pupils as confident, happy citizens.
'Children are at the centre of everything we do and everything we do is about improving their life chances'
Pioneer Academies Community Trust (PACT) is a family of primary schools in the Barnsley area.
Our ethos is simple. Children are at the centre of everything we do. We provide them with an academically challenging curriculum, outstanding pastoral care and enriching experiences in sport, music and drama. During their time in our Trust, all pupils will learn to play a musical instrument, visit our Capital city, take part in sporting competitions and experience residential outdoor, adventure learning.
We are fully inclusive, celebrating the diversity of all pupils and focused on the development of the whole person – supporting each child to flourish, succeed and make a positive contribution.
All the academies in the Trust share common values and work collaboratively to celebrate the distinctiveness of each academy’s individual ethos. Through mutual support, sharing of best practice and shared professional development, we create autonomous, outstanding academies within the MAT framework.
We are committed to raising the aspirations and attainment of all pupils and improving their future life chances.
Our core values are focused on the development of the whole person – as a learner and as an individual.
- Honesty and Integrity; we expect everyone to act with honesty and integrity and take responsibility for their own actions. We will teach children to know the difference between right and wrong and respect differences.
- Independent learning; our curriculum will promote resilience and independence.
- Equality of opportunity; we work to remove barriers to learning so that all can achieve.
- Distinctive; each of our schools will retain their own distinctive identity whilst sharing common values.
