Striving for




Vision and Values

Every Minute is for Learning - Knowledge is the Key

We believe that our children CAN … can do anything they set their mind to.

Our Vision

At Aughton Junior Academy we aim to create a nurturing school community which prepares children educationally, socially, morally and physically for their continuing learning journey, where doors will be opened rather than closed to future success. We foster a culture of equality and aspiration and aim to remove disadvantage so that every child believes in themselves and reach their full potential.

Our Values

Aughton nurtures its pupils by:

  • Providing a safe, happy academy in which pastoral care is given high priority by dedicated staff;
  • Expecting and promoting the highest standards of behaviour;
  • Giving children an excellent, secure start to their school experience in our FS2 class and establishing positive relationships with parents;
  • Developing a strong sense of community and pride, with a “family feel” to the school.

Aughton encourages its pupils to excel by:

  • Striving for the highest possible standards of achievement across a broad, well-planned curriculum;
  • Using the extensive school grounds and performing arts to stimulate a love of learning in all children;
  • Being inclusive and committed to providing for individual children’s needs;
  • Ensuring that staff are given opportunities to continue their own learning and to share quality practice with other professionals;

Aughton inspires its pupils to become independent learners by:

  • Fostering a willingness to take risks and to persevere in new learning situations;
  • Celebrating individual strengths, talents and progress;
  • Promoting respectful attitudes and encouraging them to have a voice in the running of the school.
