Kirk Hallam is an inclusive and open learning community characterised, by the pursuit of the highest standards of achievement in all its forms.

We are committed to providing a supportive, happy and safe environment for students at the academy which is at the heart of our community.

We endeavour to provide a broad range of opportunities that not only develop pupils’ academic capacity, but also nurture their personal growth. We encourage all stakeholders to conduct themselves in line with the two key tenets of our ethos: hard work and kindness.

Our students, staff, governors and community are dedicated to working together to inspire individuals to develop the skills, confidence and initiative to play active and positive roles in their future. The safety and wellbeing of our students remains a key focus and underpins all that we do.

We are committed to the raising of standards through the improvement of teaching and learning, to providing opportunities and support for the personal and professional development of all of our staff and to developing management and leadership skills in all staff.

As a school we adopt a student centred approach which is underpinned by a belief that in order for all children to achieve their potential, they must feel safe and well.
