Primary Academy

Academy Ethos and Values

At Corby Primary Academy, we aim to provide all pupils with a stimulating and inclusive educational environment in which everyone feels safe, respected and supported to grow and develop to their full potential.  We encourage our children to develop an internal moral code based on British values and a wish to learn and understand how they can improve their own lives through education and first hand experiences.  It is our mission to support and inspire children to achieve their ambitions and become well-rounded adults that are fully prepared for a purposeful and enriched life in the modern world.

Ethos and Values


Respect Each Other                       

Treat others as you would expect to be treated yourself.  Ensure you are polite, sensitive, thoughtful and caring. Communicate in a positive way: in person and in the digital world. 

Respect Our Environment and Community

Value our academy community by respecting our learning environment and property. Keep our academy a safe, welcoming and inspirational place to work and learn. Make a positive contribution to your own learning, our Academy and our community.   

Respect Yourself

Take pride in being a responsible, aspirational and ambitious person.  Have the courage to be yourself. You are unique.  Demonstrate perseverance, honesty and integrity in all aspects of your life.
