 Ethos and Values

Be Ready, Be Respectful, Be Safe

Our Three Core Values and Expectations

At the centre of everything we do at Leeds West Academy are our Three Core Values:


Everyone is known and valued.  
We are ready to teach and ready to learn.
We're in the right place at the right time. 


We do the ordinary extraordinarily well.
We strive to deliver excellence for everyone.
We respect each other.


We work together to transform lives.
Everyone has a champion. 

At Leeds West Academy we offer a learning community where every learner succeeds, is valued, and makes a positive contribution.

We achieve this vision through:

  • A broad and balanced curriculum
  • Outstanding support for students with additional educational needs
  • Additional opportunities to extend and enhance our curriculum
  • Great teaching
  • A proper partnership with parents and carers
  • A commitment to local communities

Above all, we care deeply about young people and we believe that all of them can succeed at the highest level. Our job is to find the best way to support students in achieving to the best of their ability. We are proud of our values and we try to express these through our work with young people – our young people helped create our core values.

We really do think differently, seize opportunity, work cooperatively and unlock potential. We are excited about our future as an Academy and we are determined that the achievements and the attainment of our students will go from strength to strength.
