Vision & Values

At Inkersall Primary Academy we work together to enable pupils to attain academically, to reach their full potential, and to become responsible citizens. Our values are captured in the school SMART pact.

Under SMART we:

  • Set out to succeed
  • Make each day count
  • Accelerate progress through independent learning
  • Respect ourselves, our school and the surrounding community
  • Together, we aim high!


The school SMART pact underpins our teaching and learning, and helps to create an environment in which children can become confident, happy citizens. As part of this, SMART is linked to our Class Dojo reward system, with children recognised and rewarded for demonstrating SMART values.

For our approach to the spiritual, moral, social and cultural development of pupils, we use the Starfish story as a start point. This underpins the values and behaviours we want to promote and is not only taught in discrete sessions, but also within the hidden curriculum and assemblies. Click here to view the Starfish Story.
