Letter to Parents

School inspections - a guide for parents


Welcome from the Executive Headteacher

It is an honour to lead our successful and vibrant all-through school.  Atam Academy has an outstanding reputation, talented staff, committed governors and supportive parents.   We value working in partnership together with our young people to achieve the very best outcomes for them.  At Atam Academy children have the unique opportunity to stay with us throughout their school career, making lifelong friendships and moving smoothly from one phase to the next. 

Our community is proud of this school and its successes from the consistently high performance in examinations to the wide range of creative learning opportunities we offer.

We wish to instil an enjoyment of learning and a desire to always learn more.  We have the highest ambitions and expectations for every student in all aspects of school life and strive to nurture these qualities in every child.  We want all children to fulfil their potential both academically, socially and spiritually so that they develop strong, core, British Sikh Values and an understanding of the range of choices open to them for their future. 

We offer a broad curriculum and know that excellence can only be achieved by constantly providing students with appropriate challenge, raising aspirations and insisting that good behaviour enables great learning. 

We are an inclusive school.  Our young people are treated as individuals, we celebrate diversity and we are strongly committed to equality of opportunity.  We value the partnerships we have with families, the wider community, our International links in Kenya and the quality of relationships we build with them.  As a Multi Academy Trust school, we enjoy working with and learning from other schools both within our Trust as well as in the local community and beyond.  We take pride in our caring ethos and welcoming atmosphere.

I hope that you will find the website informative. Please do arrange a visit to our school if you would like to see how we work.  I am confident you will recognise our commitment to ensure that every child enjoys their learning and achieves.
