Ethos and Values


At Fishtoft Academy we pride ourselves on being a small, friendly, family-orientated school which promotes ambition for all.  The high staff to pupil ratio means that all children are known and valued as unique individuals; and they are given high levels of support and challenge in order to ensure the best-possible outcomes for them.

We understand the importance of making learning fun, engaging, but most importantly purposeful and we strive to do this everyday through the delivery of a rich, diverse curriculum which ignites curiosity and unlocks talents.

At Fishtoft Academy we have worked together with children, parents, staff and governors to choose our core values which are integral to our school. After much discussion and excitement, we decided that the word HEART represented those values which are most important to our community.

H – Honesty, we are honest in what we say and what we do

E – Equality, we ensure everyone has the opportunity to shine

A – Ambition, we aspire to achieve our best

R – Resilience, we keep trying even when things are tough

T – Thoughtful, we care for one another and show kindness



At our school we live by our chosen values and you will see them embodied in our daily school life. We would like to invite you to visit Fishtoft Academy, to witness exciting and purposeful learning, meet our dedicated team and most importantly see the real ‘heart’ of our school, our children.
