Our school mission:

Our mission statement is a simple one: The academy will endeavour to raise the achievement and aspirations of every child.


Our values:

Our values are summarised as RESPECT:


Character traits



Determined; self-controlled; persistent; courageous; diligent; perseveres



Just (fair); compassionate (forgiveness); kind; courteous; unselfishness


elf Aware

Self-confident; self-disciplined; honest; humorous; humility; adaptability



Gratitude; motivated; positive attitude; inspires; willpower



Creative; curious; inquires; pride; critical thinking



Listens; influences; feedback; reflective; evaluative; presence



Cooperates; responsible; cares; decision makes; helpful; unity; patient


Throughout their time at Hardwick Green, children learn what each value means, why it is important, and how to develop character traits that demonstrate these values. This is taught discretely, using the 'Commando Joe's programme, and is reinforced through every aspect of school life. Children who demonstrate these values particularly well are nominated for a RESPECT award from the Principal; these are given out in a special awards assembly each Friday.


Values and Ambitions of the Enquire Learning Trust

We believe that all learners can be powerful learners given access to good learning experiences. We want children and the academies they attend to be confident, successful and ambitious.

We envisage a Trust where well led, highly skilled and committed professionals collaborate, learn and innovate together to ensure that all academies are successful and where all learners have access to effective and innovative provision that meets their needs and aspirations.

We want to add value to achievement and raise standards. We also want to change lives. We know this requires our provision and our practice to be world class – because of the distance we have to travel, we understand that good will not be good enough and that we need to develop a shared appreciation of excellence and then strive to enact this every day.

We need to show that we take learning seriously and work together to create a vibrant culture in which this can happen. We know that it’s what we do that counts and that our thinking must be visible in classrooms if it is to have leverage. Children are at the forefront of all that we do and aspire to do. We need to take serious steps to engage them, to hear their voice in authentic ways and then to use their insight and expertise to develop radical pedagogies that taps into their passions and interests and use the potential of emergent technologies.
