Equality Objectives

At Cottingley Primary Academy, we do everything we can to make sure that all children have equal opportunities to make progress and develop full potential, regardless of gender, race, disability of special needs.

All AET Academies study other cultures and learn to value and respect everyone. We work hard to challenge racist attitudes and deal very severely with any racist name calling or abuse, should it occur. This is tied in with AET's ethos and values, listed below:

  • Pride in what we do

  • Encourage others

  • Respect of self and others

  • Courtesy shown to all

  • Self belief in all work and activities undertaken in the academy

Vision & Values

Cottingley Primary Academy is part of a large family of schools, Academies Enterprise Trust.

As an AET academy, our mission is pure and simple: to enable our pupils to lead remarkable lives. This is the golden thread that binds us all together – the reason that despite our very different paths we are all part of one family.

Our Vision:

At Cottingley Primary Academy we want each and every child inspired to choose a Remarkable Life.

Our Mission:

To gather and motivate inspirational people committed to delivering an excellent education that launches children into remarkable lives.

Our Values:


As an AET academy, we choose to be unusually brave. We're not afraid to challenge wrongs, to make the right call, even when it's both unusual and difficult to do so.


We are on the search for discovering what's possible. At Cottingley Primary Academy we look to create 'eureka moments' for our pupils, helping them discover a world of possibilities and opportunities.


We always strive to push the limits. We don't settle for less than excellent and we won't allow our pupils to either. We resolve to overcome any self-imposed limits.


At Cottingley Primary Academy, we commit to being big-hearted. We choose to treat each other with kindness, warmth and care, believing that everybody matters and believing in one another.
