The positive atmosphere within our school is much commented on by visitors and reflects our aims and ethos. At the heart of this is our passionate belief in Inclusion and the Every Child Matters agenda.

A particularly pleasing statement in our latest Ofsted report is 'Pupils feel safe. They know they can pass concerns on to adults in the school, either directly, or through a 'worry box'. They know adults take bullying seriously, and pupils do not consider bullying to be a concern at this school.'

The mission statement of Powers Hall Academy is 'Igniting Young Minds'

Our pupils are very active and passionate learners and their behaviour is exemplary. They are proud of who they are, what they achieve in all the different aspects of school life and are proud to celebrate their own and others' achievements.

  • Promoting equality of opportunity and community cohesion where the diversity of different backgrounds and circumstances is appreciated and positively valued;
  • Promoting the fundamental British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect and tolerance for those with different faiths and beliefs;

and expects all staff, volunteers and other workers to share this commitment. It is recognised that this can only be achieved through sound procedures, good inter-agency co-operation and the recruitment and retention of competent, motivated employees who are suited to, and fulfilled in the roles they undertake.
