Ofsted Outstanding

Ethos & Values

Our vision:  ‘Outstanding and being the best that we can be. Aspiring to success and proud to be Babington’


The staff of the academy make this pledge to the students.


‘We all want the best for you, to help shape your future and make a positive difference to you.

We want your eyes opened to the many opportunities that there are in life so that you aim high and believe that you can achieve anything.

We want your horizons broadened through building your character and by promoting self-belief and self-esteem.

We will recognise and nurture the talents, skills and abilities of each and every one of you to enable you to grow and develop and become learners for life’.



This sits alongside the Academy Pledge which we expect all students to ascribe to and which is read in assembly each morning.

I will always to the best of my ability treat Babington with respect during my years here.

I believe that all staff and students should treat each other with respect and I will lead by example.

I will try my best to take advantage of the opportunities offered to me here.

I will cherish those who help me to achieve my goals.

I understand that bullying and unkind words are not tolerated in our College and I will not treat anyone differently because of their religion or culture.

I will value everyone for who they are.

I will respect the right of everyone to worship their God and I will embrace the cultural diversity of the College.

I understand that my College is judged by my actions and I will always try to give a good impression of the place where I learn.


Our Academy Pledge underpins the promotion of a value system which emphasises the importance of democracy, individual liberty, the rule of law and tolerance and respect for others. Although these are recognised as fundamental British values, they are promoted as values that are inherently good and adopted by many countries across the world.


Our aims and objectives are outlined below and we are committed to working as part of a newly formed multi-academy trust to continue to secure improved outcomes for our students and for pupils and students in other schools in the Trust.

  • Continue to raise levels of attainment of all students
  • Continue to close the gaps in performance of underperforming groups and their peers
  • Continue to improve the quality of teaching and learning increasing the proportion of lessons judged as outstanding. Further develop leadership, management and accountability at all levels across the College
  • Further develop the quality of assessment and the use of data to improve student performance
  • Continue to develop a personalised learning experience for each student
  • Continue to build on the strengths and expertise of partner organisations to raise aspirations and signpost routes into further learning and training across the City and continue to reduce the number of young people who are not in Education, Employment or training (NEET)
