Wharncliffe Side Primary School is now part of Peak Edge Multi Academy Trust with 5 other local schools: Oughtibridge Primary School, Loxley Primary School, Bradfield Dungworth Primary School, Stannington Infants' School and Nook Lane Junior School. We are excited about the opportunity of developing these links and working collaboratively with such a fantastic group of people.
Our values are:
Trust - We respect the individuality of schools and their communities and always act with integrity. By allowing high levels of autonomy wherever possible, we are able to nurture personalised approaches to learning and focus on developing holistic people.
Collaboration - Our Trust is based on positive relationships and close working across settings. Stakeholders treat each other with respect and work in productive partnerships for the greater good of the children.
Ambition - We aspire for all children and adults in our communities to be the best they can be. Inspiring curricula for our pupils, clear development pathways for our staff and sustainable Trust growth all combine to ensure we all reach our full potential.
Responsibility - A school understands its context better than anybody and should be supported to utilise that knowledge in order to remain improvement focused. We are accountable for our actions and are outward facing.
Innovation - Enjoyment and excitement should be an entitlement for all children and adults working in our Trust. We develop cutting edge, research informed and highly engaging pedagogies that ensure high levels of progress for children and rapid development of staff.
