Bromley Beacon Academy Vision and Academy Improvement Priorities
Our vision is to teach, guide and support all our young people so that they develop the knowledge, skills, emotional and social maturity to make thoughtful decisions and become purposeful young adults.
We deliver this by offering a broad and balanced curriculum, with specialist teachers and support staff providing an educational experience that enriches our young people lives.
We improve life chances by focusing on social and emotional wellbeing alongside academic teaching. We provide guidance and support to help our students follow appropriate pathways into further and/ or employment so they can become good, moral citizens.
Priorities have been identified by the Trust Board and the Senior Leadership Team, which are intended to address a number of key issues raised from both external inspections and rigorous self-evaluation. The identified objectives are intended to raise student attainment and improve rates of educational, social and emotional progression through the pursuit of excellence in all school areas. To do this we demonstrate an uncompromising drive and commitment to the following priority points listed:
