West Row Academy

Vision, Values and Ethos

Our logo, the chest surrounded by treasure, denotes the Mildenhall Treasure, which was found within West Row. At West Row Academy, our children are our treasures.  

We put the children at the heart of all that we do. We want children to feel happy, safe and secure; building strong foundations from which our children can boundlessly grow. 

Our adults support our children in building their own individual treasure chests filled with precious life skills, values and experiences by creating an inclusive environment where all children can succeed and shine. 

Our values have been developed with children at their heart. We ensure our six values are embedded by celebrating one each half-term, ensuring we live and embody the entire West Row rainbow every day. 

Autumn Term 1CuriosityCuriosity is the catalyst for all learning and is the spark behind the spark of every great idea. This value encourages opportunity, empathy and development in our children. 
Autumn Term 2KindnessThis is not just a West Row value but one celebrated throughout our family of schools. Kindness is one of the most powerful and beautiful forces of good in our world.  
Spring Term 1Resilience Learning is hard work and the learner is likely to meet difficult and challenging situations. Failure is a part of success; as such, we create a safe environment for our children to make mistakes, learn from them and grow. 
Spring Term 2InclusionWe are an inclusive school; all learners are welcomed to be part of our school family. Our differences are celebrated and we provide a safe space where everyone can be themselves and feel like they belong. 
Summer Term 1Integrity Integrity means doing what is right rather than what is easy and aligning our words and our deeds. We want our children to have their confidence to stand for what is right, even in the face of adversity. 
Summer Term 2PassionWe want our children to be passionate about their interests, learning and the world around them. We unlock our children’s love of learning enabling them to find their own individual passions in life.
