Nigel Bowes Academy – Developing resilient, safe and respectful learners.

At Nigel Bowes Academy we want our pupils to experience success and to prepare them with the knowledge and skills needed in their next phase of education and on their journey towards adulthood.

Along the way, our pupils will face many different challenges and we teach them how to be resilient and overcome these. Our nurturing approach focuses on the complete wellbeing of pupils to help them feel and be safe. Through this vision, we aim for our pupils to respect their own rights and the rights of others to give them the best opportunity to succeed in life.


In 2017 pupils, staff and key stakeholders at Nigel Bowes Academy collaborated to define the essential traits needed for pupils to be successful at our school and on their journey through life. These areas were defined as; Resilient, Safe and Respectful (RSR).

RSR can be seen in all aspects of school life, from our celebration assemblies, expectations for attitude to learning and behaviour through to our rewards system. The promotion of RSR is the responsibility of the whole school community; pupils, parents, staff and governors.
