Viking Academy Trust

VAT Values: Teamwork

The best outcomes for our children come from working together with staff within the Trust, parents and the wider community. Effective teamwork demands strong Relationships, Respect and Sharing.

Building productive, long-term relationships with our pupils, their parents and each other.  The way we treat each other in achieving our objectives is just as important as what we achieve. That's why our staff enjoy working for the Viking Trust, why our parent community is supportive and our children are happy and successful.

Staff have a responsibility to be respectful and supportive of each other and lead by example. Negativity leads to low expectations and a culture where excuses are tolerated. Our Viking motto is: ‘No excuse, no compromise’.  We embrace diversity, and celebrate difference. At Viking, we are constantly thrilled by the intelligence, courage, kindness, musicianship and sporting prowess of our children! 

Collaborative working is key to the Viking Trust’s success; readily sharing experience, resources and opportunities.  Being open to change and, understanding it is only in the implementation of ‘best practice’ that all children in our Trust will succeed.
