Vision and values
Everyone at DCA will be empowered to change the world for the better:
At Dixons City Academy, every child will be equally able to secure outstanding educational outcomes and reach their full potential. All children will be instilled with the desire to learn the knowledge to think critically and creatively; they are empowered to determine their own future and change the world for the better. Students will achieve this through becoming resilient learners and appreciating our 5 core PRIDE values (Purpose, Respect, Integrity, Determination and Excellence), modeled 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 all can be. Dixons City Academy values its long-established reputation as a top-performing school, with student learning at it’s heart.
Our purpose is excellence at DCA and we live our PRIDE values in our actions.
Artefact – what actions you will see from students and staff at DCA
We will change the world for the better. We are on time and we always work hard.
We treat others in our diverse community as we wish to be treated. We always follow instructions: first time, every time.
We do the right thing because it is the right thing to do (especially when no one is watching). We are kind to everyone.
Mistakes are learning opportunities. We never give up on our learning because when we work hard we achieve amazing results.
Success is a journey not a destination. We focus on controlling the controllables and being the best versions of ourselves.
