Salford City Academy is at an important point in its development. On 27th September 2013, the leadership team and academy staff established ‘a new school’ which prepares young people to progress in learning and to make a success of their lives. Teachers teach, Directors teach and support their faculties to teach, support staff support everyone to teach and the senior team teach and support everyone to teach.
In the ‘new school’, you will see engaged students, good behaviour for learning, challenging work being set, quality exercise books with a high standard of written work being produced and visible staff supporting learning. We expect our teachers to spend the majority of their time teaching, marking, assessing pupils' work and resourcing their lessons as providing the highest quality of education is our core business. In addition, we want our students to go on to even greater things when they leave us, so provide a broad, balanced and challenging curriculum, great careers advice and an exemplary out-of-hours timetable with enrichment and leadership opportunities. We seek to improve the life chances of all the children and young people we serve and make it our mission to bring out 'the best in everyone' – students, staff, parents and the wider community.
