Aiming High, Achieving Together
Ark Bentworth Primary Academy is characterised by its core values and high expectations for student achievement and personal development. We do this through embedding our vision statement in all that we do: aiming high, achieving together. This is underpinned by our school values:
- Respect: We value others and ourselves; treating others with kindness, even when they differ from us.
- Resilience: We always try our best, learn from our mistakes and never give up; even when facing a challenge.
- Generosity: We share our time, knowledge and things with those around us.
- Honesty: We speak the truth and act in a way we know is right.
- Independence: We take responsibility for our learning and we are able to think for ourselves before asking for help.
- Happiness: We smile on the inside and the outside; knowing we are valued and cared for.
The school and everyone in it promotes and reflects the Ark values of aspiration, perseverance and responsibility, which leads to high achievement for every student.
