DPA Vision Statement
DERBY PRIDE ACADEMY – VISION STATEMENT
Supporting challenging learners . . . Developing young people to succeed and make a contribution to our community
Derby Pride Academy works with Derby County Football Club to engage and sustain learning for vulnerable and challenging young people. We work with our students to improve their attainment, behaviour, attendance, self-esteem and confidence whilst providing skills to support development as responsible members of the community; we raise expectations and contribute to the well-being and cohesion of the community we serve.
We believe that provision based on teaching young people how to achieve in core subjects, in managing personal behaviours and in developing employability skills is vital to success.
We deliver Alternative Provision which recognizes that students are all individuals with different strengths and weaknesses, acknowledging that mainstream education is not for everyone.
We provide our students with a chance to engage in education whilst they prepare to regain a mainstream school place; students may find alternative placements supported by the academy or develop a range of skills to prepare them for employment, apprenticeship or other study routes beyond 16.
