At IPACA we expect, and uphold, the highest standards of behaviour, punctuality, uniform, manners and respect. We expect our learners and staff to ‘be the best they can be ’ at all times, with aspiration and challenge at the very heart of all we do.

We have set our sights on being a high achieving school and our staff work passionately towards this goal. Staff care deeply about the individual children and go above and beyond to support them.

"High achievement always takes place in the framework of high expectation"

Where are we now?

IPACA is currently taking decisive action to improve the Academy.

Leaders and teachers are currently receiving support from an experienced Executive Headteacher. We are also working closely with Wimborne Teaching Alliance, in Maths, English and Science; colleagues from Wimborne have been working at the Academy since the Autumn Term and this work has already had a positive impact.

IPACA is committed to working with all external support agencies.
