Ethos & Values
At DCA we want all of our students to have a choice about their future.
We believe that everyone has a right to a quality education and our staff work tirelessly to ensure that we do our best for every Scholar that we serve.
Through a strong and knowledge rich curriculum we are able to engender the qualities of Grit, Respect, Academic Excellence and Discipline within all of our Scholars.
Every Scholar can succeed
Djanogly City Academy is committed to providing our Scholars with the very best start in life.
We understand that every Scholar is different and we will provide the individual support and guidance that will allow your child to reach their full potential both academically and as a young person ready to enter the wider world.
Djanogly City Academy also values the opportunities and benefits that extra curricular activities can offer. We have an exceptional range of activities that take place in our Common Cultural time; providing every Scholar with the opportunity to explore their full potential.
To ensure this takes place we have a clear set of expectations that informs all the work we do at Djanogly City Academy.
- We have high expectations of Scholars and staff
- We believe every Scholar can succeed
- We will ensure barriers to learning are challenged and overcome
- We expect teaching to be well planned, varied and stimulating
- We believe in a culture based on emotional constancy, a love of learning and a deep sense of joy
Scholar centred learning
To ensure that every student at Djanogly City Academy is working at the correct level we have developed a tiering system centered on a child's individual needs.
Tiering allows our teachers to deliver lessons carefully designed around the learning needs of the Scholars in each tier. The tiers are regularly monitored and students can move tiers when their learning needs change.
Tiering is a cornerstone of the belief at Djanogly City Academy that every child can succeed.
