Mossbourne Community Academy

Our Ethos

Mossbourne Community Academy has raised educational achievement to the very highest levels. As one of the country’s leading academies, it is in the vanguard of school improvement. Examination results place Mossbourne in the top 1% of schools, nationally, and the latest Ofsted inspection described Mossbourne as ‘outstanding’ but even within that category ‘exceptional.’ Working in the local community and within a strong partnership of Hackney schools, Mossbourne will raise aspirations, expectations and achievement for all students and will continue to make a major contribution to the development of educational excellence in Hackney.

Staff at Mossbourne create an environment in which students, adults and other learners feel safe, secure and are supported by clear discipline policies.

All learners are motivated to excel because their needs are met through a policy of inclusion, where students are supported regardless of abilities.

Parents and carers become involved with their children's learning through home-school partnerships, parents meetings and discussions with tutors. Clear, inspiring leadership by Governors and senior staff actively promotes the commitment of the Academy to provide a high quality environment for life-long learning.

Members of the local community are welcomed and encouraged to be active participants in the life of the Academy.

Mossbourne Community Academy is a place where the following points are embraced:

All learners are welcome, regardless of age, ability, gender, ethnic origin, personal circumstances or need.

Staff become full and active participants in the activities of the Academy, working as a team and being fully accountable for the delivery of high quality education.

Students are given opportunities to develop as active citizens and members of the community through varied learning opportunities, assessments and mentoring to support their development.
