Vision and values - Khalsa Academies Trust

Vision and values

It is important to us, as a new academy, to have clear aims. We have spent time defining what it is that will make us unique, how we will achieve this and what behaviours we expect of everyone.

Vision

Atam was established to embody Sikh principles within its teaching to provide students with a moral grounding, self-confidence and commitment to success that will see them excel, personally and professionally, and ideally place them to have a positive impact as society’s next generation of leaders. 

Mission

Atam seeks to be the leading state funded, Sikh ethos all-through academy in East London by utilising strategic partnerships to lead pioneering initiatives that embed ground-breaking and contemporary teaching methods. We set high expectations of students and ourselves to ensure the young people in our community always have access to an education that offers them the best possible outcomes.
