Vision, mission and values

Vision

Our vision is to improve student achievement, develop character, create an academic culture and raise aspirations by ensuring daily practices are outstanding.

Mission

Our mission is that students leave here saying:

"At DAA, I developed good moral principles and achieved exceptional outcomes that allowed me to have ambitious life choices."

Values

We have three academy values that we live by each day:

Happiness - the joy of life and learning
Industry - hard work and resilience
Responsibility - always doing the right thing, taking control and being accountable for one’s actions

Keys to Success

Students will learn that the ‘Keys to Success’ are:

Self-determination - the desire to succeed and shape one’s destiny
Mastery - the command of knowledge or skills in a particular subject or activity - ‘Wanting to get better’
Purpose - reaching for the Stars

A wonderful visit to our local church for our KS1 children. We learnt all about advent and explored the Christmas Tree Festival🎄. We also made little hearts and left them all over the church to spread #happiness in our community. https://t.co/IOoMLzAXjm
