Skegness Academy principles and intent
Thank you for taking the time to visit our website.
This is an incredibly exciting time for Skegness Academy and we aim to develop young people who are excited by achievement, driven by aspiration and grasp every opportunity therefore we, the staff team will actively:
- Remover barriers to success
- Ensure there is no ceiling to achievement
- Engender a culture where excuses for underperformance do not exist
I find young people are most engaged when they are interested and excited by what they are learning. This comes from high quality teaching and learning and at Skegness Academy we are on a rapid journey of improvement.
All staff at the academy have high expectations and strive for quality and consistency so there are aspects of lessons that young people will see regardless of their age, ability or subject; they will always know what they are learning, why it is relevant and how they will know if they have succeeded.
With the new specifications weighted towards examinations at the end of the course, it is very important that preparation for examinations is a marathon and not a sprint, which is why we start early, building the knowledge, skills and resilience that our students need to succeed in life after compulsory schooling.
Having a highly skilled staff body is crucial to achieving this goal and so, like students, we all view ourselves as learners and we are here to improve what we do to be the best we can be. Regardless of a person's role in school, they are given all the training and development they need so that there is a positive impact on students.
We would be delighted to welcome you to visit at any time to see us 'in action', with confidence that you will receive a warm welcome from our staff and students. Should you have any questions in the meantime, please do not hesitate to contact us.
