Our Golden Rules

Mount Street Academy is committed to providing an environment where all people can feel safe, happy, accepted and integrated. It is important that an orderly framework should exist within which effective teaching and learning can take place.

Our emphasis will be on recognising and celebrating effort and success, so that all pupils feel valued. We will teach pupils to take responsibility for their own actions and to accept the consequences of their choices. We will adopt a zero-tolerance approach to bullying and any such incidents will be dealt with promptly and firmly.

The school holds an important position in the wider community, educating the young citizens of tomorrow in a way that will ensure that they take a positive and proactive role within their community in the future.

Children at Mount Street Academy are expected to follow our rules and values:


Determination – We never give up

  • We will try our best
  • We will work hard

Responsibility – We are honest

  • We will tell the truth
  • We will listen

Empathy – We are kind

  • We will be a good friend
  • We will use kind hands and words

Aspirational – We aim high

  • We will be the best we can be
  • We will follow our hopes and dream

Make a difference – We look after our World

  • We will look after our community
  • We will make the World a better place

These rules and values are displayed around our school environment and we refer to a set of characters called 'The DREAM Team' to support children in recognising and remembering them. We focus on one value every term and celebrate the demonstration of this value through our weekly DREAM assembly.
