Improvement plan

Vision

Our vision is for for Dixons City Academy to be in the top 1% of schools within 3 years (+1) and for our Sixth Form to be +0.5 value added by 2019

The Road to Greatness

Every child will be equally able to secure outstanding educational outcomes and reach their full potential. Our students will be instilled with the desire to learn and the knowledge to think critically and creatively. Students are empowered to determine their own future and change the world for the better. Student achievement is secured through them becoming resilient learners embracing our 5 core PRIDE values (Purpose, Respect, Integrity, Determination and Excellence), modelled by all staff at all times. We are ambitious for our whole community and invest in strong professional relationships in order to be the best we can be. Dixons City Academy values its long-established reputation as a top-performing school, with student learning at its heart.

The Dixons City Improvement plan aims to achieve three key objectives:

1. To ensure that we are outstanding in our daily practice as educators Priority: ensure that Progress 8 score is at least +0.8 and the gap is closing across three key sub groups (boys and girls, disadvantaged and non-disadvantaged, prior high attaining students compared to prior middle and prior low).

2. To develop routines that maximise learning and a common language for learning Priority: ensure that line-up/morning meeting, transitions between lessons, entry and exits in lessons, and consistent routines and teaching techniques in lessons maximise learning.

3. To continue to develop independent learners, who demonstrate aspiration, resilience and a growth mind-set approach to learning Priority: ensure that all students understand how to learn (100% sheets), understand the range of careers that they can achieve and aspire to, and live our PRIDE values each day in their actions and words.

Some very brave students @dixonsca agreed to open their results while being filmed by Look North. A few quiet tears from me and @JoOrton90 as we watched another great year group get ready to fly the nest and move on to their next chapter. Congratulations to the Class of 2019. https://t.co/J68EJLks5t

A fantastic morning here at City as we celebrate the achievements of our Year 13 in #BDResults. It was great to share it with @Lizzy_Steel from @BBCLookNorth and the @Bradford_TandA. More coverage to follow later, but here are a few photos. https://t.co/5TtUbDDHaX
