  • Acknowledging the support and involvement of parents and carers in their child’s learning journey
  • Being part of a multi academy trust and working together to provide the best education for students within the area
  • Becoming a central part of the community through positive relationships based on mutual support and trust


We want to be unusually brave and we commit to being big hearted. We chose to treat each other with kindness, warmth and care believing that everybody matters and believing in one another. The values of the School today are underpinned by the Aylward Attributes staff and students are encouraged to demonstrate
