The Sikh community within the United Kingdom has a long tradition of integrating and enhancing the communities in which they live. Our values are based on brotherhood, honest living, social responsibility and helping those in need. These values within a nurtured environment will strengthen the characters of young Sikh and non-Sikh students and mould them into a future generation that we can all be proud of.
Our vision is inspiring and aspiration and is articulated through three themes:
We want to create a school that goes ‘Beyond Academic Achievement’ where we provide an exceptional academic education and encourage a passion for life-long learning where students, staff and parents work together to the best of our abilities with honesty, integrity and self-discipline. This is what we will inspire our students to do.
A school where we go ‘Beyond the Individual’ to ensure that we foster all aspects of personal development and encourage students to take a life-long journey of self-discovery through self-reflection and meditation.
A school which inspires students to go ‘Beyond Selflessness’ where they share their future skills, knowledge and income with those in need, in love and charity and without discrimination.
We aim to create a high achieving, all through (primary and secondary) non-selective school which will follow the principles and values of the Sikh faith. We will offer a comprehensive academic education to rival that provided by the local grammar schools but open to all.
Our school will be an exemplar school based upon the Sikh ethos but inclusive to all. Our excellence will be built upon a strong partnership between passionate staff, committed learners and dedicated parents to build an exemplar school.
At the Atam Academy, we value diversity and encourage religious leaders from all faiths in shared learning.
Whilst the Atam Academy is a Sikh faith school, we will provide an environment for those that wish to follow any faith as well as those that do not have a faith. Facilities will be provided for those pupils that wish to participate in a morning prayers linked with their faith.
A multi-faith room will be available for all non-Sikhs who wish to participate in their own prayers at the school.
All prayers are followed by a whole school assembly where all children will join together to participate in a whole school message.
