Our school's friendly, communal atmosphere was noted by Ofsted with them describing us as, 'a happy and inclusive school where pupils behave well and develop strong relationships.'

Our motto is:

Quay Academy - where our children are Key

We are a values school and encourage children to think about the principles that guide our behaviour and thinking. Over time, we hope to see children putting all of these into practice to become well-rounded citizens and life-long learners.

We pride ourselves on being a school based upon values.

Our values are:

  • Aspiration - Always aiming high
  • Ambition - Being the best we can
  • Courage - Nothing holds us back
  • Respect - Always leading by example

Children are assigned one of these values as their School House - they can earn dojo rewards for using the values in school and at home and will receive weekly rewards.

Our criteria for a successful schooling experience, one which we are constantly measuring ourselves against, is as follows:

  • School and learning should be enjoyable, productive and an integral part of every child’s life where a child can develop empathy with his/her surroundings.
  • School should create a caring and happy environment where all children experience success and achievement.
  • School should recognise each member as an individual with particular needs and talents and develop a forum where each member can join with ideas and share experiences and impressions with others.
  • School should offer a well-balanced and broad curriculum that will ensure that all targets set by the National Curriculum are available to our children and should include academic, cultural, social, spiritual and physical development and growth, preparing pupils for the experiences, opportunities and responsibilities of secondary education and adult life.
