The Astrea vision enables individual academies to flourish with real autonomy, whilst also ensuring a strong ethos of support and collaboration across our schools. This balance is necessary in order to achieve long term sustainability for our schools.
As an individual academy our vision is to prepare children for the wider world, ensuring they have the confidence, skills and qualities to succeed in all areas of life. Hatfield Academy is not just about schooling it is about educating the whole child.
We aim to develop the following skills and qualities in every pupil:
Resilience, Empathy, Aspiration, Contribution and Happiness. These are the #AstreaStars
The work of the Astrea Academy Trust is underpinned by five core Value Partners, which are equally applicable to pupils, staff and the work of the Trust itself.
Each pair of Value Partners is accompanied by a call for action in the form of a hashtag, which is used in verbal, digital and hard copy communications.
The Value Partners can be used as a measure of individual, school and Trust progress and as a guide to inform the direction of change.
Responsibility and Leadership
Individuals in the Astrea community are accountable for their own decisions and actions and are supported by strong leaders, while trailblazers are encouraged to develop skills and talents in others. The Trust has a strong commitment to developing and nurturing our own leaders. #4equity
Enjoyment and Innovation
We know that everyone learns best when they enjoy what they do and are in a position to follow their innate desire to achieve. Astrea pushes boundaries so that pioneering ideas are tried and tested so that our academies remain leaders in the advancement of teaching and learning methods. #go4it
