Welcome to Balby Central
Welcome to our school website; please enjoy finding out about us as we constantly develop on our everlasting learning journey.
We pride ourselves on our strong inclusive ethos and rich cultural diversity which celebrates each child’s uniqueness and individuality at Balby Central. Our aim is to unlock each individual child’s potential to succeed, thrive and to be happy on their own journey with us.
Our approach is driven by high expectations of learning and behaviour encouraging all children ‘to be the best they can be as we endeavour to create unforgettable learning experiences and immerse children in an environment where they feel confident to challenge themselves. We are constantly adapting to meet the needs of all as learners in this ever-changing society and ensuring that they are ready for the next stage in their lives. During their time at Balby Central, children are taught the skills of collaboration and the power of talk, confidence, resilience and effort, determination and reflection to support their academic successes.
Our children learn about ready, respectful, safe behaviours and how they can make a difference to themselves and others in the school community and beyond. We value the links we make with parents, governors and the local community and believe they are essential to achieve the aspirational goals we have for our children and their futures.
We are very proud of the children who attend our school as they begin their educational journey as part of the Balby Central community, as we celebrate their achievements through our school Facebook and Twitter accounts. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you would like more information , to arrange a visit or to find out a little more about what we do. We would welcome your communication and we look forward to sharing our vision with you.
Balby Central Primary Academy is proud to be part of The Rose Learning Trust
We are a Trust founded on a shared belief that the best interests of children should be at the heart of the future of our schools. Our Trust was founded by the Head Teachers and Governors of two schools who shared this belief and wanted to take the necessary steps to ensure that this was at the forefront of our educational futures.
We believe that all children should have the opportunity to achieve their full potential. Our focus is ensuring that all of our children have the best tools and support to learn and grow in a safe, enjoyable environment. We acknowledge that results are not the full picture. If pupils do not enjoy school or do not gain the life skills to make the most of their qualifications, success might evade them. We aim to provide an environment in which children can develop wholly, not just academically.
We are committed to maintaining the autonomy of our academies. We seek to support and challenge each other to improve the outcomes and life chances of all the children across the communities of the Trust, whilst respecting the aspects of practice that are distinctive to our individual communities.
Our motivation is sustainable, mutually accountable collaboration and school improvement, focusing predominantly on how this will raise standards of teaching and learning for our pupils. With effective collaboration, good practice and the sharing of resources, we aim to broaden the future opportunities of both our pupils and staff.
Our aim is not only to grow our Multi Academy Trust (MAT) successfully but also sustainably. We believe that through quality, not quantity, we can facilitate opportunities for our Trust that can be invested back into the people who will secure our future: pupils and staff.
Our Vision – Transforming futures collaboratively
Our Mission – Expecting more than others think possible
Resilience with integrity in a modern world
