Introduction by Head Teacher

Transition from Primary School to Secondary School is a very exciting time and I am really looking forward to meeting you all. I am sure you will enjoy all the new subjects you will get a chance to experience when you start in August. You will meet lots of new people including other pupils and teachers and have the opportunity to take part in lots of extra-curricular clubs.

Northfield Values

Values are really important in Northfield Academy.


They guide us on how we should act and what we find important.

Determined

We demonstrate this by…

Not giving up

Learning from mistakes

Drafting and redrafting pieces of work

Creative

We demonstrate this by…

Being brave enough to ask questions

Coming up with imaginative solutions to classroom issues

Being appreciative and embracing the past while still seeking new and improved ways of doing things.

Encouraging

We demonstrate this by…

Recognising the smallest effort

Understanding and appreciating others’ viewpoints

Making positive comments and having a good upbeat attitude.


Responsible

We demonstrate this by…

Making decisions for ourselves

Managing our time

Holding ourselves accountable for our actions

Successful

We demonstrate this by…

Setting targets and meeting deadlines

Sticking to our commitments

Believing in ourselves

Fulfilling our potential

Staff and pupils can nominate other pupils for any of the values each month. If a pupil has shown to be very encouraging they can be nominated for a value certificate. This is presented once a month in the value assembly. Once a pupil has received all 5 they are presented with a values pin badge to showcase their achievements to the whole school. This can be worn on their uniform to show they are acting in line with our values.
