We are on a mission to make Hazeley the very BEST place to work or study! This mission is embedded in our values:

“At the Hazeley Academy we develop Character, Confidence and Creativity in our young people and each other so that together we can gain fulfilment by playing a positive role in our community

  • Core Values (Our fixed, guiding principles by which we make all decisions)
  • Character – We have respect, integrity, loyalty, high expectations and resilience. We believe the differences amongst us make us even stronger
  • Confidence – We trust ourselves and each other, we relish taking calculated risks, we understand honest mistakes occur and learn from them together
  • Creativity –We enjoy working together designing, creating and reflecting upon solutions, including how to improve ourselves and each other in so doing making our Academy a truly inspiring place

It comes to life through our actions:

  • We all make decisions based on these actions, for example if you make an honest mistake we work together to put it right
  • All staff have 5 year flight paths helping them to develop and grow securely while working at Hazeley
  • Staff feedback is used to continually sharpen systems and processes to reduce staff workload. For example, we have reduced the number of assessment points for each year group, created an on call system and central detention system
