Here at Haxby Road, our Ethos is, Proud to: Learn, Grow and Aspire together

Ethos and Values

At Haxby Road Primary Academy we are proud to: 

Learn, Grow and Aspire Together.

Our Vision

Our vision is to encourage all children to achieve their full potential and prepare them for their future by building on their strengths. Our school community will aim for high aspirations and culture of embracing challenges for all, within an inclusive, safe and happy environment. 

We aspire for all children to grow into resilient individuals ready to deal with future challenges. We will nurture self-belief, curiosity and creativity across all areas of school life and community, so children aspire to be lifelong learners.

We strive to create an environment where children recognise that to achieve their full potential; they need to learn and grow the knowledge, attitudes and characteristics of success to enable them to help shape the future for the better and develop as people in their own right.

Our Haxby 100 aims to provide our children with a wealth of cultural and creative experiences that broaden their knowledge, extend their opportunities and raise their aspirations, and ensure the core moral behaviours of trust, kindness and self-belief empower our children to grow into successful and responsible community and global citizens.

Our Values

  • Our school community is built on the foundation of trust, kindness and self-belief. 
  • Our values are central to our ethos and learning at Haxby Road Primary Academy. 
  • Our core values are lived everyday of our school life by everyone in school.
