Buckton Vale Primary School in Stalybridge opened as an academy within our Trust on 1st October 2022.
Buckton Vale Primary School’s governing body had been considering joining a Multi Academy Trust for some time, as they were keen for their staff to be part of a strong group of schools based locally with whom they could work together and develop good practice. The Government’s White Paper supported their preference and after several months of investigating options and evaluating their position and needs, Buckton Vale opted to join Victorious Academies Trust.
Deborah Brown, Headteacher at Buckton Vale in Stalybridge said, “We decided to join Victorious Academies Trust because our values align. Our CEO Karen Burns trusts her school leaders by offering autonomy whilst creating opportunities for schools to connect and learn together. We are really looking forward to collaborating with schools across the Trust so we can offer the best possible education for our children.”
Their values-based school nurtures curiosity and creativity through an inspiring, broad and engaging curriculum, where learning is at the heart of all that they do. Their children learn to become resilient and self-assured in an environment where safety is paramount. Everyone is challenged and encouraged to thrive and achieve as individuals, preparing them for their role as caring and active citizens in modern Britain.
Their vision is to become a leading school, which provides an excellent education for all their children, at the heart of their community, through their core values. They strive for excellence, enabling their children to achieve their highest potential in all areas of the curriculum.
Our school values after input from all parents, children and staff are as follows:
