Mission and values
At Dixons Unity Academy, we all work together as a community to fulfil our one common mission:
‘the academy is united behind a common purpose of empowering young people from all cultures and backgrounds to improve their life chances and develop a lifelong love of learning which enriches the local community. We all work hard to climb the mountain to university or a viable alternative and to secure a progress 8 score of +1.0…’
Our core values of Integrity, Resilience and Respect help us all to achieve this by defining the moral purpose, work ethic and element of humanity that our academy embodies. From the moment a student arrives at Dixons Unity, we ask them to not just unite behind, but live by these values.
Integrity is the quality of being honest and doing the right thing at all times. It also closely linked to Unity; as it means to be whole and undivided.
Resilience represents the capacity to recover from difficulty and overcome any obstacle to progress.
Respect is showing regard for the values, feelings, wishes and rights of others while also admiring others for their abilities, qualities or achievements.
These values underpin everything that we do as a community and we expect all members of our community to aim to demonstrate these values at all times.
