Bobby Moore Academy

We celebrate the diversity of our community through our aspirational learning culture so that each individual can fulfil their potential.

Our Academy

Vision and Values

Our vision is that the education we provide to our pupils is both emancipatory and empowering. We believe firmly that every pupil at Bobby Moore Academy has a birthright to a world class education, and that the end goal of education should be to furnish pupils with choice. This belief is founded upon an absolute conviction that each of our pupils has the capacity to become knowledgeable, articulate, compassionate and industrious young people. We are committed to the communities we serve, and encourage our pupils to think of themselves as future leaders within these communities.

With the David Ross Education Trust, we share four common values that permeate every aspect of our work.

Ambition

Our pupils will be ambitious young people who are driven and entrepreneurial, fully focussed on realising their goals. They will be determined in their pursuit of knowledge, of joy, and of success. Our staff, likewise, will be determined to help our pupils achieve that success, communicating their relentless ambition for the pupils in our care.  In so doing, our ambition is to place Bobby Moore Academy among the best schools in the country.

Aspiration

Every one of our pupils aims high. We do not talk to them about limiting target grades, nor do we use the term ‘ability’ when we talk to them about their academic progress. At Bobby Moore Academy, we believe that effort and excellence are inextricably linked.  At Bobby Moore Academy, our pupils understand that aspiration is integral to improvement. We help our pupils to raise their aspirations through exposure to a highly academic curriculum, to co-curricular opportunities that broaden their worldview, and to a staff body who share a common belief that our pupils have limitless potential.

Courage 

A transformative educational experience takes one out of oneself and into new experiences, some of which can be daunting. It is our vision that each of our pupils personifies courage, that they are not afraid to try new things, that they actively seek out new opportunities and challenges. Courage is also about not being afraid to make mistakes. With this in mind, we want our pupils to be courageous in their learning, to see mistakes and instances of failure as opportunities to learn and succeed. Finally, we want our pupils to be courageous enough to stand up for what they believe, to have the courage to be kind and the courage to do the right thing, even when nobody's watching.

Respect

The foundation of any successful community is the mutual respect displayed by and shared between its members. At Bobby Moore Academy, we want to inculcate in our pupils three kinds of respect: respect for others, respect for our communities, and respect for ourselves. We believe it is our duty to develop respectful young people who know how to conduct themselves in the world, and that we have a role to play alongside parents to ensure that this is a priority from the earliest stage in childhood. We will be kind, polite and thoughtful towards each other at all times and never seek to contribute to, or ignore, the unhappiness of others.
