The Dogsthorpe Academy will promote high-quality learning as an entitlement for all pupils and will ensure they reach their full potential, with no limit to what they can achieve.

We are committed to the highest of standards. We expect outstanding levels of achievement in all areas of academic and personal development and excellent behaviour.

For the Academy to run efficiently and for children to gain the most out of the education offered, a high standard of discipline will be expected at all times. Anti-social or disruptive behaviour will be dealt with promptly and sanctions imposed. Parents will also be involved as quickly as possible, so that home and the Academy can work in partnership to solve any problems which may arise.

We are proud of the high standards of discipline we set and achieve.  All pupils will be encouraged to develop an enquiring mind, a sense of purpose and a determination to work hard. At the centre of the Academy’s code of conduct is respect and consideration for other people and their property.

Individual pupils will develop a sense of personal responsibility so that they can make a full contribution to their learning and to the community. The Academy will raise aspirations and actively challenge low expectations.

We want our pupils to be proud to belong to the Dogsthorpe Academy and to be proud of their achievements. Whatever our pupils’ backgrounds, we want them to be in the best possible position to move on successfully to the next stage of their education beyond the Academy.
