It gives me great pleasure to start the new academic year as the Principal of Pegasus Academy having taken up the post as Interim Principal in January 2018.
In my role as Principal I am dedicated to developing an inspirational school in which every learner can explore their skills and abilities, learning to build on their strengths.
At the heart of the school is a relentless commitment to continuous improvement which extends to both learners and staff.
As part of this agenda we have embedded a new values driven behaviour policy in which we expect every learner to:
Aim high in everything that they do and fully embrace our values system, Demonstrate outstanding effort, develop resilience and fully comply with Values Driven Expectations which is rewards-led.
The premise of this system is the concept that good choices bring rewards and poor choices bring sanctions.
To underpin this we have a rewards scheme which motives learners by recognising and rewarding their efforts.
This is part of our culture in which we set high standards and have high expectations of all learners.
We see our strong focus on first-class attendance and behaviour as the foundations needed for learning to take place.
We also place a focus on expanding our learners’ awareness of the vast range of career routes open to them.
In partnership with our sponsor: Dudley College of Technology, all learners visit the college and take part in a programme of enrichment activities designed to expand their thinking and help them to consider a wide range of future career options.
So you can learn more about us and how we can support each and every learner, we would be delighted if you could visit us at one of our open events – there’s a warm welcome awaiting you.
