Vision and Values

Aegir – A Specialist Academy places great importance on the vision, values and aims of our school.


The most important thing for us is the wellbeing of the students in our care each day.  We believe that a trusting partnership will thrive between us when we all place our students at the core of everything we do.  This promotes very effective engagement with parents and carers and those professionals involved from other agencies.  We want to ensure that your children are happy, safe, healthy and successful. 


We aim to achieve this through

  • home-school book communication;

  • involvement of parents/carers in decisions about their child’s education; for example, the annual review of the Education, Health and Care Plans, Individual Learning Plan review meetings with our staff team and the Team Around the Child, consultation discussions, and information giving and receiving events including questionnaire feedback;

  • regular contact with class teachers and our support team;

  • invitations to school and community celebrations throughout the year;

  • invitations to social events; and

  • family learning activities.

Vision Statement

Mayflower Specialist School Academy Trust is united in delivering a high quality enabling education where all are encouraged to reach their individual potential and achieve personal excellence.  Within this happy, safe and supportive learning community we nurture curiosity and promote creativity of thought.  These values underpin every child’s social, emotional, educational and physical development in preparation for a fulfilling life. 



  1. To provide a safe, enriching and aspirational specialist provision which enables everyone to flourish.

  2. Academic excellence is valued by all; we encourage self-confidence and recognise that it develops through risk-taking and through promoting a ‘have a go’ culture.

  3. Enable students to build character and resilience and to continue their education within a safe, supportive environment throughout school whilst also recognising that 16-19 represents a different phase in the transition from student to young adult, through encouraging students to be more self-sufficient, taking greater responsibility for their own actions and learning.

  4. Demonstrate our commitment to all staff to continue to model the highest level of expertise through training and coaching to provide the very best provision for students within a culture of mutual support, trust and aspiration.

  5. Promote children’s understanding and awareness of their place in our world, empowering them to embrace their individuality and that of others with tolerance, kindness and respect. To enable them to be a productive member of any group, whether friendship, class, school, family or in the community. This is achieved by the value we place on working and interacting with families, support agencies and the wider community.

Respect for each other and the school community where difference is celebrated.


Connection with each other and the community. This supports students to develop their social skills and helps them to become well rounded citizens in modern Britain.
