Mission, Vision & Values
Welcome to the Viking Academy Trust
Founded in 2016, Viking is the first primary-only academy trust in Thanet. It comprises of three successful schools: Chilton Primary School, Ramsgate Arts Primary School and Upton Junior School.
Our 'One Childhood One Chance' philosophy resonates across all aspects of life in a Viking school.
At the VIKING ACADEMY TRUST we understand that every member of staff is here for the best interests of the children. We want to ensure that no child is left behind and that the unique identity of each school is protected, celebrated and valued for the contribution it makes to ensuring children have the best education and experiences.
By being part of the VAT we passionately believe that by working together; the children are able to have a higher quality of education and that as colleagues, we will also benefit from and reap the rewards of a values based organisation where you are also not left behind.
The ‘Little Blue Book’ is a set of promises that as colleagues, we make to each other and to our organisation, for the ultimate benefit of the children and families that our schools serve.
