Ready to Achieve

Values and Ethos

At the City of Derby Academy, our vision is to improve the life chances of all students.

We aim to achieve this vision through the 3Ps:
Provide, Promote and Prepare.

Our vision and our aims are underpinned by our core values, the 3Rs:
Respectful, Responsible and Ready to Achieve.

All members of the school community are expected to demonstrate and promote these values. The 3Rs are therefore the foundation of our culture and ethos: “this is how we do it here, every day”.


Whilst we strive for 100%, we acknowledge that students don’t always get it right. That’s why our minimum expectation is 95% for attendance, behaviour and effort.

Students who meet the 3Rs 95% of the time qualify for praise and rewards.
