Our Personal Development programme is underpinned by our Professional Standards curriculum. This is how we teach students the professional standards that we believe will lead them to success in their future lives: Conduct, Dedication, Organisation, Pride and Values. These are the standards by which we expect all students and staff to act, and we have an explicit curriculum, taught through tutor time, assemblies, and a consistent language around the academy, that aims to support students to not only understand our academy expectations, but also to be confident in why those expectations are important.
The Professional Standards Curriculum (delivered through tutor time) teaches students the reasons behind the rules we have at the academy, so that they are not just blindly following rules, but making conscious decisions about the right way to behave.
Trinity Academy Bradford is committed to upholding the highest standards and expectations. Our Professional Standards serve as a guide for all staff, students, and stakeholders to adhere to in order to foster a positive learning environment. By upholding these standards, Trinity Academy Bradford aims to promote a culture of excellence, accountability, and mutual respect within the academy and wider community.
