Welcome to the Saltley Academy website. I hope you will find it useful and enthusing.
The school is going through a very exciting time. Since 1st March 2015, we have become a member of the Washwood Heath Multi-Academy Trust, committed to providing the best educational experience to the young people in our area of Birmingham, along with our partners in the Trust, Brownmead Primary Academy and Washwood Heath Academy.
Saltley Academy is committed to high standards and expectations, giving all members of the school community the chance to develop, be successful and enjoy their time at the school. We are committed to developing outstanding learners and teachers and to playing our full part in the creative development of educational success for young people in our school, the Trust's schools, the East Birmingham Network and across the city as members of the Birmingham Education Partnership.
Staff and students have together agreed our vision for the school. If you are a prospective parent, I hope you will find this a statement that encourages you to entrust your child's future with us. If you are a prospective colleague, I hope you will find yourself wanting to be a part of the school as it moves forward on its journey.
Saltley Academy: Be Outstanding
Saltley Academy will provide outstanding learning opportunities for all the members of our school community in a safe and caring environment, in which they all feel that they belong, have a voice and are treated equally. Being a member of Saltley Academy will transform the lives of everyone in our school community: students, staff and families. We will work alongside other schools and institutions, so we can inspire outstanding, life-long learners, who are taught and guided by the inspirational staff here.
With the skills and personal qualities that are required for a happy and successful life and career, Saltley Academy will prepare our young people for adult life, as respectful and responsible citizens in multi-cultural Britain. In a school where real success is recognised and celebrated, Saltley will have the highest expectations of every individual’s academic progress and personal standards, where we all encourage each other to believe in what we can achieve. Providing every opportunity possible for all members of the school, we aim to be a shining example of excellence in teaching and learning.
Developing the best qualities in our school community, all of us will develop our ability to be enthusiastic, positive, creative, respectful and honest individuals. Encouraging the key skills of confidence, communication and collaboration, our young people will thrive as disciplined, resilient independent learners, who are responsible for their learning and behaviour. Our young people will know that they have the support and guidance of our dedicated staff, who will inspire them to reach their true potential, and who will help them to excel in all they do.
